    Nike ends contract with Lance Armstrong - Oct. 17, 2012

    I still believe his Livestrong foundation is a great cause and what they do for people with cancer is admirable.

    I expect most of them to follow and drop him from sponsorship, but they will all still support the Livestrong Foundation (LF), so I expect Nike and Oakley and ____ to make products that benefit LF.

    Oakley is keeping their contract with him for now, until evidence beyond a doubt is shown.

    It will be interested to see what happens with Livestrong glasses in the future. Prices could either drop, or increase due to all the controversy.

    I would say we are at the "beyond a doubt" point right now, unless there is a MASSIVE conspiracy operating in order to shame lance...but it seems more like he was the mastermind behind the most successful doping ring ever.

    I dont disagree. They're basically waiting for the final, official verdict of the International Cycling Union.

    All this stuff saddens me. I never bought any livestrong pairs because I'm not a huge fan of black and yellow. But I will keep my Juan Pair pair anyway, I like them a lot and part of the proceeds did go to the livestrong fund.

    Nothing would make me sell my Oakley's, LiveStong or any other model, unless I really had to. So my pair of LiveStrong Scapel will stay.

    Livestrong or not I'm on the safe side, cos I don't like yellow.

    I have every official issue Lance Armstrong/Livestrong & Pelota glass except the OO Black P Scalpel & his C Six (5 numbered pair issue) and will keep all regardless of recent events, the glasses are part of the collection more due an interest in Oakley anyway.
