    I have a pair of Half wire 2.0 and I just got a set of Walleva lenses. They look beautiful but the quality is absolute trash. I know I didnt expect much for a 20 dollar bill but damn. Both lenses put together are nowhere near the thickness of the OEM Lenses. Does anyone have any advice on aftermarket lenses. I would buy some original ones in a heartbeat (let me know if you have a set) but unfortunately they are discontinued and nowhere to be found. I hate to trash the frames since I have 2 pairs in really good shape. Just over the years the original lenses have started to delaminate.

    Im not really a collector. I wear all the pairs I have. Having crappy lenses takes the enjoyment out of wearing them

    Besides the thickness, is there anything wrong with them?

    Fitment is good. They just seem real flimsy. I wore them only for a few mins on my patio today. Didn't really get to test them out. Clarity seemed fine and so did color. I guess I am just use to my OEM lenses and it's not really fair to compare them

    If optical quality seems fine, then that's all that really matters.

    I agree but feel is also important. If they feel like cheap Chinese sunglasses then you lost the whole Oakley feel of quality
