Looking for my teenage kids. They just found out about polarized anti-reflective eyeware when they picked up my "stupid" looking 8 year old Oakleys in attempt to make fun of me. Now they are scraping their pennies together.

Is it still just Oakley? Are Bolle and Wiley for the price comparable to Oakley.

Get real sunglasses. Get Ray-Ban.

I don't know about the best place to buy Oakleys..........Oakley has a strict policy about absolutely NO sales whatsoever. If you are an Oakley dealer you will sell for MSRP or your dealership will get pulled.

Sunglass Hut stocks a variety of Oakley and more. You may want to google them.

Wiley cant compare to Oakleys, there's a reason all the golf pros and shooters wear Oakleys for competition: almost zero optical distortion. Wiley's have rather annoying distortion in some parts of the lens geometry, depending on model.

I think the polarized Oakleys are well worth it, and wear them whenever I'm driving or outside. The only time I wear my Wileys is in dusty/windy environments, aka, the desert, because of the foam eyesocket seal. The Oakleys are also better styled, in my opinion, the Wileys are kinda dorky.

I've never owed Bolle.

Dont bother searching for a discount on Oakleys, you wont find one, they are VERY strict on making sure everyone charges the same price for their glasses. The most they can offer is free shipping and maybe some other little free things, but the basic price is always the same.

Bolle' = Bushnell, do the math...

Yeah, it's still just Oakley for optical clarity, all day comfort and impact protection.

That said, they are probably wasted on teenagers .

Ray Bans were the thing, back when they were an American company

Trust me, there are worse things that they can spend their money on. Buying nice stuff and hopefully learning to take care of it is the next best thing to them not having any money.

e-bay on the Oakleys... But, be very careful, make sure it's a dealer with lots of sales and a very high pos feedback.

I got my XX Polarized from some guy on there, they are real and they were new. I saved about $40.
