I've had a couple pair of Oakley Sunglasses for going on 10 years now. They're nearly indestructible! Was originally concerned about the lightweight polymer lenses but neither pair has sustained a scratched lens.

I came across this link today and they're blowing out many different models at 92% off! May not be for everyone but they have loads of styles in many models. Maybe you can save yourself some $$

I kinda just bought 8 pair... Only $15 for shipping total which is nice. I used a real credit card and not my bank card just in case it's a scam. I should never need sunglasses again!!


Oh if it is a scam, I'm holding you responsible.... Lol

I wonder if these are genuine Oakley. I know places used to sell knock offs that looked identicle, but would break easily. All parts even interchanged. May have to get a pair or two just to see.

Hiya,

It's a Chinese site, most likely a contractor that had it's contract terminated by Oakley for poor quality or a company making knockoffs, Here's the domain registration info. What's interesting is that the are no Mail Exchange (MX) DNS records, that indicated that the company is not reachable on that domain via email. This is a little strange but being Chinese, the government may not allow non regulated email services and forces use of government controlled mail servers.

I think the key here is that the site is only about a month old. Here is what happens when I try to access the site. Definitely not a "safe" site.

Oh boy. I'm sorry if my naivete caused any problems. I didn't even suspect this could be anything other than genuine goods!

No worries on my end. While I did rush a bit more than I normally would, I was at work and and placed my order between jobs. I have missed a few great deals posted on another site I frequent, and probably jumped the gun on this. If they either don't show up or are knock offs I'll dispute the charge and hope for the best. If not it's only money, I'll make more I guess...

Hey, I can hook you up with the guy on my TV that sells "buy 1 suit get 3 free". Tells me right there that first suit is worth less than 1/4 of what he was selling it for before the "sale". AND, he's also got another deal going where you get buy a shirt and you get a "basket of shirts absolutely free!" :laugh:

I thought I scored big on sunglasses when I got a pair of "Fitovers" brand (fits over glasses) for $30! While we are "on glasses" I'll just rant a minute here... I got talked into those "automatic changing" sunglasses last time at Lenscrafters:

A. They don't work in a car (UV changes 'em and it's filtered out by the car window).

B. This the biggest pain, they change to near BLACK in the cold... even in the shop at night they are about 50% darkened (and I have "night blindness" on top of that!). Of course I bought these in the Spring and didn't know about those negatives until Fall arrived... Live n' learn AGAIN! Thank you all for your kind attention to another whine.:laugh:

Maybe call the credit card company and cancel that card number.....no problem to issue you a new one.

I got a call from my credit card co about a week ago and we decided to cancel the order and change my card number... Scam for sure. I give it to capital one, they are on top of things.
