Before i bought my first pair of Oakleys, i had a moment where i debated whether or not it was worth the $150 price tag, (I got Flak Jacket XLJ's). Then i researched the product itself, realized they were made in America, they had billions in research invested into glasses, and used the best products available. So i bought them. And believe me, i was on a tight budget when i did, and i feel it was worth it. But yeah, there's those people that say "only Douchebags wear Oakleys", and "Oakleys make the shades that transform a tool", but i dont think they realize we just care about quality, not about the style, (atleast me and most of us do). A few of my friends constantly heckle me about how they are a waste of money, and give me all these reseans why they are, without listening to my reasons. So what do you guys think about the price? and does anyone give you a hard time for wearing Oakleys?
