    I know for a fact that I will NEVER find these frames in any UK store, but I see they're on the UK oakley site and they all look quite interesting...

    So with that said, what are your thoughts on these frames...

    Polished Black
    Gray Smoke
    Gray Ink
    Polished White
    Clear

    I know silver frames are easily damaged by sweat / suncream / makeup(?) does the same apply to the above? Also is clear clear as in see through? Because they just kinda look like a very pale silver on the website...

    I'm not a fan of polished frames. A lot of people are.

    The inks I like, they're generally pretty dark matte colors. The smokes I think let more light through, and have the texture of the polished frames.

    So of the ones I mentioned the Gray Ink are the winners? Lol I'm just trying to think of some options which would go along well with daily prizm lenses and the Gray Ink does look quite pretty

    After viewing some pics of people wearing the clear frame I've come to the conclusion that I do not like them. It makes them look cheap imo

    Clear is a crystal clear, has the same texture as the smoke and crystal frames, which are similar to polished.

    MATTE clear, on the other hand, is a sweet frame color.

    Though I prefer any translucent or clear frame with a lighter lens tint. Going full dark sun lenses then allowing light through the frame? Pass.

    Matte black, for all of your sunglass needs. Standard, vanilla, dark, retro, metal, dressy, classy, aggressive, all available in matte black.

    Oakley Frame Opinions - image.jpg Buy an X-metal and never look back. Behind you will be meh... I recommend a Xs ( X-squared ) and custom lenses from a cutter. Total cost around 500$ for a glasses only but you will trip how much you'll love em!

    But what's a girl supposed to do if she likes being deliberately awkward? :( matte black doesn't say "I went out of my way to be different" to me ;) lol

    Then get the matte black pair. Paint some polka dots and tiger stripes on them. You will be all good then. ;)
