From the manufacturer
As one of the leading product design and sport performance brands in the world, Oakley is a culture of creators, inventors, idealists and scientists obsessed with using design and innovation to create products and experiences that inspire greatness.
Pushing the envelope (as usual), Oakley's X Squared sunglasses take you to the brink of eyewear technology with fully hypoallergenic, extremely lightweight titanium X Metal frames and high definition optics (HDO) lenses that ensure the utmost optical clarity. Aggressive, athletic frames are fitted with sticky UNOBTANIUM ear socks and nose pads with internal flex couplers for flexibility. PLUTONITE lenses block 100% of all UV and blue light while providing impact resistance that exceeds Z87.1 optical impact standards.
Oakley was created for world-class athletes, those who see the limits of possibility as just another challenge. Their dedication drives the brand to look beyond the conventional ideas of industry standards. It's in Oakley's DNA to identify problems, create inventions, and wrap those inventions in art. And simply to make things better than anyone thought possible. Decades of Oakley innovation have been awarded more than 540 patents that elevate physics to the level of art. Technologies transcend sports to enhance the lives of consumers, and more than 110 countries now enjoy a full array of market-leading products including premium sunglasses, goggles, prescription eyewear, apparel, footwear and accessories. These products represent Oakley's commitment to excellence - a passion that redefines what is possible for those who defy their own limits.

Here is your answer. Wear these and closed doors will open. Women will want you and men will want to be you. If the movie "The Book of Eli" was ever to happen, everyone knows that when the apocalypse happens the only things separating the Sword and Shotgun-toting heroes from the monomaniacal dictators is a pair of Oakley sunglasses and the ability to read Braille. And you can't buy fluency of Braille on Amazon.
Ok, reality check. These sunglasses are no better or worse than any of the other offerings from Oakley. They are fully UV rated and have all of the typical benefits and drawbacks of the Oakley marque: USA made, outstanding optical clarity, phenomenal impact resistance, the exclusivity of the Oakley brand, sweat and oil resistant hydrophobic lens coating, and the usual problem with the lenses scratching when exposed to anything other than a clean room. BUT, and it is a big BUT, these are made of that magical metal Titanium.
Following in the groundbreaking footsteps of the Juliet, Mars, X-Metal XX and Penny, the X-Squared is an absolutely gorgeous mix of style and functionality crafted and finished by hand in Titanium, a metal that is stronger than steel, almost as light as Aluminium, and will not rust or corrode. Even if you don't buy in to the marketing hype of Oakley, Inc. you gotta admit, these really do look good. Yes they are expensive, and replacement lenses will set you back $50-$165, and a factory tune up of hinges and nose piece gaskets will cost $70 but when you hold these in your hand you really do get the feeling that they will last. And if you are actually considering buying a $400 pair of Oakley sunglasses then either you are a compulsive Oakley collector who is willing to eat ramen noodles for a month or two to be able to add these to the collection, or you have arrived in life and things like expensive replacement lenses don't matter. Either way, they are worth it.
These are one of the few styles of sunglasses that look good with a suit and tie, or jeans and a t-shirt. They are durable, comfortable, well made and include different types of nose pieces and ear piece spacers to ensure a proper fit.
Amazon really impressed me with these. First off, the price was almost $100 cheaper than buying them directly from Oakley. I ordered these with 2 day shipping, which was only like $8. They arrived on time, but the seal on the bottom of the box was broken, and it looked like the glasses may have been handled, or even worn before. Also, the ruby lenses looked mostly yellow and orange, rather than red. At 10pm I sent ONE email to customer service, explaining the details and asked if I could exchange them. Within an hour I received an email back, explaining that they we sorry, and that they had already shipped another pair OVERNIGHT, free of charge. The following afternoon, I received the second pair. The seal on the bottom was also cracked a little, but my guess is that both were broken in storage, transit, or handling. They seemed untouched since the factory, and have much, much redder lenses. These also came with a different bag, which I figured out later, is the newer model. The bag with the large tag on the bottom is the older one. I printed out the return shipping label emailed to me, and dropped off the first pair at UPS. Now, my only problem is convincing my wife to get me the Ducati edition for my birthday...
* Maid in USA
* High quality
* The nose piece design is impressive
* It was $40 or 50$ cheaper few weeks back!
* Bulky, cannot fit in the sun glasses holder in any car!
Overall, i would buy it again. In fact i lost mine and bought another identical one :|
