Oakley C WIRE is true dimensional art, fleshed out with tech and style. The stems are crafted with smooth contours and ports, and titanium MONO SHOCK hinges allow them to hyper flex when the world comes at you head-on and dares to make contact.
We've toyed with a few elements in our day, and many of those metals have been melded into alloys. Our original C WIRE celebrated the success of C-5, a lightweight blend of five metal compounds with the kind of durability that keeps comfort at the top of the list. We jacketed the stems with UNOBTAINIUM to increase grip with sweat. The Three-Point Fit eliminates pressure points, because life has enough of those already.

First, let me just state that I've own a number of high end sunglasses over the past decade, e.g, Revo, Gargoyles, Spy, Prada, Costa Del Mar, Vaurnet, Black Fly, Suncloud, Maui Jim, etc... I'm fairly certain I know what I should expect from an expensive pair of sunglasses.
I just received my Oakley C Wire sunglasses and quite frankly I'm a little disappointed. The one thing I was sure that I would be happy with, the overall fit, were good. The arms rested a little more tightly above the ear than was comfortable. This is due to the fact that the arms are static. In fact, the arms/spring/hinge has a stiff feel with very little give. There is no "spring" in the "spring-hinge" mechanism. Which is my first real complaint. You will need to bend these to fit them.
My other real complaint? For $220 there isn't even a hard case included. Other sunglasses in the same price range that I own, Revo, Prada, Kaenon, Costa Del Mar and Maui Jim all come with their own hard cases that are excellent for storage. All that is provided is a micro fiber pouch.
The real disappointment stems from the fact that for the same price you can get a really nice pair of Revo's that are mechanically and technically superior. No, I'm not talking about both company's use of polycarbonate lenses with techno-geek words... We all know that modern plastic lenses do the job pretty well. Not as efficient or optically consistent as glass, but lighter, cheaper and more durable. I'm talking about overall design, craftsmanship and materials used in making the frames. Compared to my Revo Efflux Titanium sunglasses, the Oakley's are clearly a step down.Read more ›
As an Oakley fan, I hope my bad experience with this product is just a one-off, maybe due to bad design rather than it being an indication that the quality of Oakley has diminished since it was sold off. And what is the deal with Oakley not packaging a sunglass case with their glasses, I know they were able to get away with it in the past, maybe due to lack of competition, but they are no longer the only company in their market segment, and their competitors all seem to provide a case.
