Before I take the plunge into a new pair I wanted to see what you all may have that you aren't using. Looking for excellent to like new condition. I am a fan of Smith and Rudy Project - but open to others. Let me know what you have. Bonus points for Interchangeable lenses.

Honestly, these are the ugliest free glasses I've ever bought. They are wonderful in their franken-oakley way.

I think shipping is $8 from China. I used them a lot in Colorado last month.

Worth it, IMO

You'll want a real pair, too. I'm just throwing this out there.

Louis pal gave me a set of super-huge glasses several years ago, which I still have... He knew something I didn't.

Yes. Seriously.

I wound up ordering a jersey, too just to see what they are like. I figured it was one of those unpredictable Asian vendor fits: I ordered a XXL and should have ordered an XL. I'm normally right between an L and XL. They are what they are, and what you'd expect for the price.

Site says 7-30 shipping days. Still not a bad deal to try them out for fit before purchasing the real Oakley..

It took at least two weeks to get mine. I had forgotten about them.

Haaahaha. I ordered a pair of the $7.99 Foakleys. Would be nice for commuting.

Jawbreakers are great glasses. However some dislike the design. I'd suggest finding some racing jackets/jawbones. Great glasses.

Wow...those cheapies would actually be great for CX - glasses often take a beating and really need serve no other purpose beyond keep sh*t out of your eyes and cutting some glare if needed.

Do they use the same lenses as the real thing?
Cause that would be cool.

I don't think so, but I've never owned the real thing.

I'll try when I get my pair. If they ever show up. Would be great if they used the same lenses haha

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.

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

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.

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.

Out of curiosity, did anyone try swapping out the lenses on the foakleys?
