Lost my sun glasses this past weekend so I need a new pair fast.

I am looking for a pair that has interchangable colored lenses.

Since I am commuting in the dark I want clear lenses as well as smoked and yellow.

Anyone know of a brand that includes these three colors that is reasonably priced?

thanks

I'm really unsure of prices or what you consider to be reasonable, however, I prefer Oakley M Frames. I've got about 6 other pair including Rudy Projects. I still prefer the M Frames.

Walmart. you can get 'a few' for 1/2 the price of one 'real'
pair. Also, I REALLY recommend getting plastic frames. I
recently crashed with wire frame sunglasses and cut the
side of face starting with my eye. luckily i can see! So
a good 'plan B' to not having a wreck is to wear plastic/
rubber stuff that won't cause additional damage.

They're on sale now and mine included all three colors you mentioned plus mirrored, so four sets of lenses.

They were $100 before, now like $40.

I picked up two pairs for $80. Very nice glasses in my opinion.

www.sportsoptical.com Call Bret, he is the absolute king of sunglasses. He makes his own lens and is so good at it some of the manufacturers "borrow" his ideas. If you tell him that the Haul'n Ass Race Team sent you over he'll hook you up.

I just got a pair from Performance. I think they were $35. They were the Athena for narrower faces (maybe actually for women, 'narrower faces' for the clearance sale). But they are pretty cool, I think there is also a pair for not so narrow faces.

...are my new favorites. Mine came with yellow, rose and brown lenses, but you can probably get clear. Lenses slip in from sides rather than rotating out from top, much easier. Slightly wraparound but larger frames don't scream "I love the 80s." $100-150 depending on polarization preference.
