Oakley have the nicest styles in sunglasses, but build quality leaves a lot to be desired. Within a few weeks of using my Half Wire XLs, the hinge catch/stop had worn on one side. The result is lop-sided sunglasses. The metal used is exceptionally poor. I've had build quality issues with my other Oakleys (the coating on all three sets of lenses on the Half Jackets flaked away at the edges). The styling is great, but I can't recommend Oakleys to anyone.

Lens:BLK Iridium
I like these frames alot they fit and feel great.I have always owned the "Wire" usually the Ewire back in the day. I dont mind the weight of these frames (as alot of people do mind) I feel that they are very secure,and fit very well. The Iridium I enjoy on brighter sunlit days. Clarity is excellent! as you would expect from Oakley. There are not any sunglass's that even come close to the Oakley lines.

I bought these as a replacement for my old Square Wire 2.0 after a lens fell out of the frame and cracked, and I love them, but be warned the lenses have a tendency to fracture at the top near the bridge of your nose. I had the lenses replaced by Oakley due to this problem, and the second set of lenses have done the same. They're comfortable to wear, and offer good coverage for larger head sizes, and the lenses are a treat to look through in usual Oakley tradition but the lens defect does annoy. It's not obvious to look at, but bugs me cos I know it's there!

Frame: Ti
Lens: Ice

I made a mistake by first getting the C5 version with the regular lenses, but in my opinion, the spring hinges are too weak and need a lighter frame to stick to one's face. The ti version is barely adequate in that area, but the XL lenses help immensely with coverage. I'd like it better if the frame had more curve to it. But something unique happened the first day wearing this model - someone said, "Aren't those like $200 shades?". So they must look the part, at least. New buyers should be careful to examine the lenses near the frame. Half Wires are the worst I've seen for fractures and scratches caused during assembly. The 2.0 version is better all around. I eagerly await the titanium version of that model.

Frame: Titanium Carbon
Lens: Black Iridium Polarized

The best frames + the best lenses = the best shades. Forged from pure titanium, these frames are as light as a feather... yet tough as nails. They even have spring hinges for increased durability. And the lenses are polarized. What more could you ask? If I could give this pair a six-skull rating, I would.

After I sold my C Wires I had to get something that would look something like formal sunglasses. To my chagrin the Half Wires are a long way from equal. The Half Wires maintain the spring hinge of earlier wires, but add the ability to flex outward even more. This added flex makes the glasses looser on my head and I am conscious of them if I'm doing anything but sitting still. The earstems also have a defect that loosens them from their anchor point over time, so I'm getting that repaired now. The lenses have also come loose, which wouldn't be so bad if they were interchangable, but these lack that system. All that aside, they do offer a good amount of coverage for only a half frame. They are probably the most comfortable wires for the larger head sizes, and they maintain a conservative enough look to be pulled off as a pair of dress glasses.

Frame: Silver
Lens: Ice

If you like the Half Wires but have a big head, or just prefer more lens coverage, you can't go wrong with these. They fit like any other wire frame, which is to say, quite comfortably. Unfortunately, there aren't as many color options available for the XL models, which keep them from receiving a full 5 stars.

Frame: Titanium Carbon
Lens: Black Iridium Polarized

Half wires are nice. a wire version of the half jacket. wires are usually not my thing but I liked the shape of these and the titanium frame is super light. Of course, if you are going to get one, you must get the polarized version. Best lenses out there on the nicest frame for this model.

Frame: Silver
Lens: Fire
Immediate adjustment to the smallest changes to the lighting conditions owing to the replaceable glasses, which strengthen the contrasts in changeful weather and with cloudy sky or bad lighting conditions permit a clear view of the smallest details. Incomparable clarity and maximum field of vision. Extremely durable version with protecting employments for optimal, comfortable stop.
