These really are great glasses. I have another Thule set (the highball glasses as well) and everyone remarks on how lovely they are. Guests are especially impressed by the "feet" underneath the glasses, which are shaped to look like hanging icicles. The texture against your hands is also very good, so it doesn't feel like it will slip. Totally worth the investment.

I love these tumblers. They are the perfect size for a single malt neat or vodka rocks. 8oz glasses are too large and are reserved for cocktails. These glasses are gorgeous and all my guests compliment them. Highly recommended.
