I've had a pair of Oakley Minute's for a good 4 years now. Worth every penny ($175 CAD) and more. I used to buy the $35-40 pair of Oakley lookalikes and ended up doing so every year or so because that's how long the tint or construction would last. And comfort/fit, well you feel the difference pretty fast. I also didn't want to spend alot of $ on shades as I was wearing glasses until August of '03.Then I decided to have LASIK surgery. After that I felt it was worth it to get a good pair of shades.
