    It all depends on what color your helmet it.

    ...basically any MX goggles will work, assuming they fit your head. I had a pair of cheap goggles I picked up at a Fontana race and never wore them cause they constantly slid down my nose so I couldn't breathe. Picked up a pair of $35 Oakley goggles (possibly the same pair) at Mammoth and enjoy using those. They keep all the dust out of my eyes when riding here in So Cal

    What's your budget?

    I run two sets of goggles:

    Blur B1: The best goggle for the price if you ask me. $30 bucks gets you 4 layers of Foam, a very wide viewing angle, a tear off system, and they look very awesome. I think JensonUSA has em.

    Oakley Crowbar MX: These are kinda overpriced at $60 dollars. However, they perform really well. They provide a stellar viewing angle, the strap system is awesome and it never puts too much pressure around your eyes. They come with tear offs too.

    If you don't have a lot of money, the O Frames or Blur B1's will do good. If you got money to splurge, the Crowbars are it.

    All Goggles Fog...it's that simple.

    Just make sure you keep them clean. Fogging depends on your riding environment.

    Damp, Cold, Wet=Fogging like none other.
    Dry, Hot=No Fog at all.
