I would try to find old school killer loops. They were the closest to oakley a long time ago... when I was in high school they were the cheap mans Oaks...

Hey Scott, I know what you mean. I boght a pair of killer loops a while back (model name -99 degrees) and they are a dead ringer for the old zeros except they have the added advantage of ball bearing mounted ear stems so that they are more compact when folded.

I would reccommend Bolle. Although they are no where near Oakley status. They are still decent glasses which are also stylish. imo

I didn't really even own suglasses until I started buying Oakleys.

I don't like the thought of not having Oakleys as an option for sunglasses.

But for shoes, sorry everyone, I'd get Nikes.

It's alright Dan. Nike's are still my choice for sneakers. I see Oakleys more so as lifestyle/casual shoes. None have really ever stood out as sneaks.

Yeah I do agree Phil. I still get Nikes for sneakers and my Oakleys are usually basically used for lifestyle/casual.

Even though I was getting kind of pumped up when Oakley started getting into the basketball shoe realm. But I do think the "skater" and mountian bike sneaker/shoe area fits Oakley a bit better.

I used to wear Nikes but would have to buy a new pair every 6 months....they just do not come anywhere close to the durability of Oakley....

If Oakley started making running shoes, or more sneaker like hiking shoes, then I'd go for them. As long as they looked good and weren;t too bulky or an odd material. Nik, my Nikes seem to last years. I only buy a new pair every 2.

Same here, for regular running shoes or something like that Nike makes a good shoe. Mine never seem to wear out that fast either, they usually last me a few years.

i've worn Oakleys for so many years i wouldn;t know what else to wear if Oakleys weren't an option. it's like losing a limb or one of the five senses.

OT: I don't know what the status of running shoes now is at Oakley. I remember at an investor's meeting they were talking about Red Code and how a potential venue for that was in running shoes. However, now that the basketball line is all but kaput (Skillet and Paint were sweet tho) maybe the push is off on Red Code, and therefore explicitly athletic shoes, in general. Anyone know?
