... in general, Oakley glasses are a bit overrated... but I do like 'em (and their shoes)...

They ship within a couple of days, so you'll have plenty of time to snag a few of these stocking stuffers...

A bit too industrial for my tasteTig

Besides, I'd most likely laugh at myself if I looked in the mirror! I guess I can't take myself too seriously without at least a giggle. I'm more into Rudy Projects... Ekynox SX for road, Graal for MTB (clear or red lenses in the forest).

....three years now for Pro-M frame High Intensity Blue lenses. Pro athletes have had them for at least that long. Why can I still not buy them?
Pretty steep for shades. On the other hand,djg

To each his or her own.

I spent more money on Oakley's X-Metal-XX which I use as regular eyewear. Rather than Oakley lenses, I use prescription polycarbonate Transition lenses. (It saves money if you can combine cycling and regular eyewear in one piece.)

To combat slippage from perspiration, I think it is important for the frame to have the rubber-like material on the arms and nosepiece of the frame. The material really keeps the frame from slipping. What appears to keep the Plate from slipping is the pressure from the arms.
