    How could you live with yourself buying fake Oakleys? Buy the real thing.

    Fleabay, craigslist, any big city tourist area.
    Remember though, owning counterfeit items is almost as bad as selling them. Illegal.

    Saving $100+ on a pair of sunglass will go a long ways in helping me feel better about myself.

    Paying for eye surgery in the near future is waaay more expensive than buying sunglasses that have UV protection.

    If you're just looking for functional glasses, anything will do. I got a pair of (real) Chili's from REI for $40. They're UV protection, and they're polarized.

    If you're looking for the name, just paint a big "O" on the frame of whatever glasses you have now. It looks real enough.
    I've made some bad decisions like taking the gears off my bike. So here's the warning: Do not as I say, nor as I do.

    Why not just buy some cheap, UV rated specs from someone like Endura or Bloc or Madison?

    Otherwise, Ebay with worldwide search ticked.

    While I don't agree with buying knockoffs, your statement above is ignorant. Even the cheapest plastic lenses filter out almost all UV radiation. Buying more expensive glasses does not get your better eye protection. It simply gives you higher quality, more durable plastics.

    I say go for the real thing. I have a pair of Oakley sunglasses. I forget the model name, but it has "Jacket" in it and is made of some super light plastic. I bought it about 5, 6, or 7 years ago and it still holds up and in one piece. Great quality, super light, and still looks cool even if it's a very old model. I think I paid a tad over $100 at Sunglass Hut back then (now I wouldn't bother spending that much on sunglasses). It was a bit expensive for me then, but I wanted to look cool.

    The only thing that I dislike about it is that I couldn't wear a Fox Flux helmet with it necause the the back of the Flux is wide and got in the way of the Oakley "arms" so that I couldn't properly wear them. I evetually soild the Flux but now I miss it because it was one of the most comfortable and best-fitting helmet. It's just that I ride only with my Oakley.

    Get the real thing, man. You don't want to get close to a girl only to have her say "What, are those Foakley?"

    I bought mine from a beach vendor near Cancun. They broke. I need to return for a new pair.
    .

    I may not have the best of everything, but I have the best everything that matters.

    I've got four real pairs and three fakes. The fakes are all clear, and used as cheap disposables for night riding.

    I've taken one pair of fakes and tried to break the lenses with my hands- whatever they are made of, they are plenty tough and did not break.

    In my part of the world, Oakely CS is utter garbage, so I have no qualms going the fake route or buying Rudy Projects.

    It doesn't matter to me...I actually own a real pair of Oakleys though they are misplaced at the moment and I can get them direct from Oakely at half price anyways...it just sucks paying so much for sun glasses...even the half price prices.

    Look into US Standard Issue (Oakley's discount stuff for those that serve) if you are a LE, EMS, Fire fighter, or military, or know someone that is. You can't get everything they offer, but there's a pretty good selection and the prices are WAY lower than you pay normally.

    Just an example...Halfjackets retail for $130ish...I can get them for $80. Not a bad discount on the real deal ordering directly from Oakley too so you know it's legit.

    I bought a pair of optic nerve glasses with multiple interchangeable lenses on bike nashbar for $25 around 10 years ago. I still wear them. Clear or orange lens for riding and brown for summer time. $25 well spent.

    Yeah, there's plenty of glasses out there that are as nice as Oakleys but without the stupid price tags. I have two pair...one was given to me and one I bought a few years ago but they were a lot cheaper than now through the discount program. I think I paid $55 or something like that. I don't even think I'd pay $80 now for a pair. I love them but just not worth the money. I will say that the polarized lenses from Oakley are awesome. I haven't tried other brand lenses so I can't say if Oakley is the best or not. I'm sure there's other brands just as good for less.

    you can get Oakley look-a-like glasses almost anywhere but without the "O" or "Oakley" trademark and then they are completely legit. I would just use "cheaper" brands from REI or Sports Authority instead of actual counterfeit.

    Reason being is knock-offs are usually "smuggled" into the USA and thus not held to FDA standards such as the lenses not shattering into a million pieces if you crash and piercing your eyes out. I would be far more concerned about that then UV protection

    you are better off with $15 safety glasses from Lowes or Home Depot. The optics will be similar, but the safety glasses will be impact rated. maybe cheaper, too.

    The problem with counterfeit items besides the ethics and laws is if you order them online you run the risk of the FBI and Ice shutting down the website and seizing the shipment leaving you with no way to get your money back.

    Where does one order Foakley's? (fake Oakleys)

    I bought an expensive pair of faukleys ($25-30) eBay and they're still going. The polarized lens is really 'polarized' and the case and frames are pretty solid.

    Edit: I had a real pair once but they got swallowed up by the Pacific Ocean. That was a painful moment.

    Buying counterfeit is the same as stealing.
    That puts you in the same category as bicycle thieves.

    second the home depot safety glasses. they work fine.

    never pay more than 20 bucks for eyewear, unless you like to impress people with your spendy high dollar image...which no one cares about anyway

    expensive eyewear is a total scam. sure oakley pays for research but el-cheapo glasses are just as safe and uv protection and all that...just don't order off ebay or craigslist go to home depot or zenni optical
