Some interesting findings on the net if you google "foakleys". Seems that real lenses will fit. Can't wait for mine either but forgot about the Chinese holiday taking place.

I think these people manufacturing fake stuff would do a lot better making parts for oakley glasses... that making fake POS.

These are new, and a pretty good deal. I can vouch for seller. Beside the Red Sol-X, they come with clear and ignitor lenses, and hard case.

freebie ship..ordered some $17 gloves + the glasses, we'll see.

Funny, as soon as I added a pair to my cart a message poped up that Peter in Boulder just bought a pair.

I think that's just because Peter in Boulder is famous.

I've had the Foakley's for a couple months now. I ordered them as a cheap way of seeing if I liked the frame shape before getting a real pair. While they look identical to Oakleys, the plastic frame is a more brittle plastic and the lense quality is ok in bright light but difficult to see in varying light conditions. I don't wear them in racing conditions for fear that if I were involved in a crash, I'd get a sharp piece of broken plastic through my eye. For me, they've been relegated to beach wear.

Good advice. I was wearing Oakleys when I was crashed and landed on my face. I had 30+ stitches on my fore head and inside my ear from a broken frame. BUT, the lens not only stayed in place, it didn't break. Looking at the gouges in the lens I can't help but believe it saved my eye.

NOt sure if you found anything yet...

I've got a pair of smith pivlock V2 Max with blue arms and 3 lenzes (gold/ rose/ clear) that I no longer use.

All use but in working order. Willing to sell with case and all three lenses for $40.

HMU if you're interested.

PS, they look like this:

FINALLY these glasses arrived after ordering them January 30th 2016. I thought it was a scam after their link to the shop did not work and the email address link to a female in Dubai, but it arrived un damaged and packed rather nicely.
So as described.. Lenses are nice but the plastic frame material seems brittle. The fit is nice and snug and can be adjusted by lifting these lever by the temple and pushing in the arms. The real Jawbreakers has a feature that hinges the frame to remove the lenses, these do not, one piece construction. Thanks to TC for the link and hope the others receives their order.
