Frame: Light/Clear
Lens: Clear

Got these from the US Standard Issue site. Not my style of frames but they're already wearing in on me. They're pretty cool and very comfortable. The unobtanium makes this feel like it's going to stay securely on my face. Great job to Oakley

Frame: Pewter
Lens: Zeiss A/R Clear (non-oakley)

I've worn these for about 2 years now as my glasses when I don't have my contacts in. 2 years later, these are still probably my favorite of all the RX glasses they have available, even the new styles. I will say that I have tried wearing these for a week straight, and there is so much pressure above my ears that it some times causes irritation. Actually, thats saying a lot, these glasses have maintained their shape and have not become 'bent out of shape'. The o-metal is pretty durable, but I'd still feel better if these had spring hinges. The fishing line to hold the bottom of the lens in never broke, so no problems there. Still a very classy style that isn't too loud like some of the other Oakley prescription frames. Came with a torpedo case too.

The Zeiss lens is good, but there is a touch of distortion when looking out the corner of the lenses (I also have an astigmatism, so it may be unavoidable). One long term thing I didn't like is that the Zeiss lens is very susceptable to micro pitting. You can't see it while your wearing them, but when you hold them to a light source, you can see pits everywhere. No scratches, but pitting everywhere.

To have Oakley lenses, the frame must be sent to oakley, and the lenses are cut off premises obviously by Oakley, which means your insurance probably won't cover the lenses. A new option has opened up for me and I can now get the Oakley A/R lenses at a reasonable price, so I may go for it with my next pair. Just need to decide whether it'll be worth updating the prescription in this pair.

This is a 5 star frame, but gets 4 stars due to comfort issues.

I really like these a lot. They are very light weight and they are nicely designed. One thing about Rx frames is that its hard to find frames that fit me without stretching for my wide head. These fit very well. Eye coverage is excellent.

These glasses are the most comfortable and stylish glasses which I have ever owned.These glasses were really designed with sports in mind as no matter how much you sweat they stay firmly planted on your face due to the soft UNOBTAINIUM temple sleeves and nose pads.

I Love these glasses. They are designed great, and have good grips, especially when I run. If you are looking for a quality built frame, get these. They are worth the money, even though they are on the pricier side.

Frame: Pewter
Lens: Oakley A/R

I just got these babies yesterday, and I love them. I do get a bit of barrel distortion even with the Oakley A/R lenses, but this will likely be much less of a distraction as I get used to wearing glasses in general (these are my first Rx ever).

I think these glasses are very stylish (my wife who works in the fashion industry approves!) I have a smaller head, so a heavy frame wasn't really an option, and these frames are truly minimalistic, but still stylish. To me they are minimalistic (which I love), extremely functional (they're Rx glasses, duh!) and exceedingly comfortable (I think comfort is subjective, and will depend on your face/head shape & characteristics)

In all, I am very pleased -they were my favorite frames at the store, and wife's second favorite (so that's saying a lot!)

Awesome.

Lens: Lenscrafters with Anti-Glare/Scratch Resist
These are great! I just replaced an 10 year old pair of Giorgio Armani's and I have to say, these are quite lighter! The style is a great fit for my bone structure (that's important!). However, I've been wearing them as my primary glasses (I have no alternatives/contacts) and they are putting a great deal of pressure on the side of my head. So much so that the flesh feels tender and sensitive to touch. I don't know if this will work itself out, but I'll give it another few days before I bend the frames out a smige.

Frame: Pewter
Lens: Clear (prescription)

Lightweight half (upper) frame lenses with the squared off edges makes this pair a perfect understated and stylish set of frames.

I have terrible eyesight and need very thick lenses, and I was surprised both that they could fit such fat lenses on the thin frame and that they still looked brilliant. The temple O icon's are accented in a lighter metallic shade against the pewter making them stand out and is a great detailed touch!

The back of the ear stems were a little tight but some simple minor bending out of the arms made them perfectly comfy for me to wear at home when I'm not out with my contacts.

Frame: Polished Black
Lens: Clear

I had to go with the 6.0 because of my wide face. The nose pieces seem to be a little "sticky." That could be in part because I haven't worn a RX pair of glasses in forever and am not used to them. The rubber earpieces really grip the side of my head. Which help hold them in place, but since I adjust my glasses a lot (just figgity) they grab at my hair.

I totally dig them. I am a contact wearer and haven't had a new pair of RX glasses in like 9 years. I knew it was definetly time to get a pair and Oakley was the way to go!!!These look great on my face (or so I think, lol). Definelty approve!!!

Frame: Pewter
Lens: Clear

This is my second pair of Oakley Rx's. I was looking for titanium or X-Metal versions but this one really caught my eye. Once I tried it on, I never wanted to take it off. Don't know much about what O Metal is but I think it's at par with the titanium or X-Metal versions. Oakley's really fit well, they don't slip off my nose. It's really light and thin, I feel like it'll loosen up sometime but it didn't. I really love it more than my Square Wire 2.0 SH due to it's lighter and thinner frame. It looks great, though not too flashy but very decent looking. It's a bit expensive here in the Philippines but it was really worth it. I think I'll be wearing this for a long, long time.


TERRORISM -
For years Oakley enthusiasts sought after the G26 due to its beautiful green hues which seemed to surpass the popularity of Emerald Iridium (at least in terms of color, not function). Oakley finally listened and released Jade Iridium, which boasts a beautiful green chroma on a grey-based lens. This new iridium allows the wearer to effectively don their glasses in medium or even bright light conditions, which was a serious drawback for the G26 hue. While I would love to see this lens in more frames, the "exclusive" appeal factors greatly due to it only being offered in the Radar (thus far)...
MB -
I have jade iridium on my Radar XLs. As far as external looks are concerned, the jade iridium looks absolutely fantastic. Looking straight onto the lens, the green in the center seems to fade to a violet along the edges. Although this lens lacks the contrast functionality of the G26 lens, the gray base makes for a much more user-friendly lens that I welcome on a limited edition frame like the Anti-Freeze Radars. This lens stands out on display and on your face, but the lack of functionality forces me to give it 4 skulls.
Ian -
I like this lens. Pretty. I've worn it 3 times, and it just didn't seem to dim the ambient light much. It's great for display and occasional use. It gets a lot of compliments. Some functionality, just not enough for me to use it more often.
Celicagame -
I love this lens. I have these in my anti freeze radars and I get so many compliments on them. The lens from the outside is a thing of beauty. Yes it's grey based but that doesn't bother me. I've tried on the g26 and while it is a nice lens it gives me a headache after awhile. I wish this would replace the boring emerald.
Christophe -
I gave them a try on M-Frame instead of G26 (I always wanted this kind of green) just for the look.

I must admit it's also great to wear: the dimming isn't strong but there is an overall viewing enhancement (very comfortable)
Feelin' Froggy -
Just got some OCP Frogskin lenses to pop into some Matte Blacks. Love the outside. It's a true green that even Emerald can't touch. From the inside, Jade isn't bad in it's own right. It gives almost grey-reddish tint. Emerald is still my overall favorite to look through, giving a blueish tint that can't be touched. But I'll probably end up wearing my Jades more since it just looks too darn cool!
Obsidian -
This lens has a nice green iridium coating which looks great from the outside. Even though it's a grey base looking through the lens gives everything a slight blue tint. It's actually very nice and doesn't seem to darken much your field of view much at all so it's perfect for almost any light condition. It's polarized equivalent is my favourite lens at the moment.

only a motorcross rider knows how difficult it is to jump like james steward, the trick is to go as fast as you can , but also as low as you can , not losing speed in mid-air. James is the one rider who can do this like no other !!! it even has his signature-name ; the bubba-whip. This picture is exactly taken as james is in the middle of his whip. He overtook many others doing this exact "trick" 5 stars for the poster , 10 stars for the whip he is performing

A great hockey shield/cage combo, with the most unique design elements out there. The only drawback is the ever-persistant fogging problems. And with the jawbones cage portion being a thicker mesh, the fogging is a bit worse.

Frame: Retina burn

On the plus side: Fit well, very light and very comfortable. Look really, really great.
On the minus: Visibility field is not as good as the Radar's. Generally speaking, I liked these less.

I ride mountain and road bikes, sold my Jawbones and went back to my good ol' radar paths.

Frame: Matte White
Lens: Black Iridium Polarized

Very cool, functionality is perfect. I'm not a fan of vented lenses, but these are for a niche market. My only real complaint is a hydrophobic lens with vents means that water gets blown into your eyes. I know that there are "solid" lenses, so it's not really a big issue.
Type O Positive -
Frame: Polished Black
Lens: +Red Iridium Polarized

The Jawbones are very comfortable, the styling is sleek, with different lines than a lot of the frames. Changing the lenses seems to be easy, since they slide in compared to clicking in. The frames may look really big on smaller faces.

Frame: Polished Black
Lens: Positive Red Polarized

Man, this pair offers a solid One,Two punch. In terms of design and color combo (frame structure and positive red lens), it is just simply stunning and functional. The name given fits it perfectly too.
This is a first where the hex head is colored so customization will be endless... the jaw, main orbital, earstem, screw, metal icon, earsock and the lens all come in different colors so one can mix and match to your desire. The contours of the frame is really out there and shows a lot of art. The light-weightness is also worth mentioning. The only thing I can say negative about this, is the huge orbitals, but it came that way for a reason. The earstem is also a bit small making it a little awkward with the big orbitals

Frame: Polished Black
Lens: Polarized +Red

Tried these on today courtesy of a fellow O-freak. Sleek, sophisticated, and aggressive styling meets mad science head-on with the introduction of Oakley's patented new Switchlock technology. Jawbone also provides excellent coverage, although some would prefer a slightly smaller version (listen up, Oakley!). Only one area remains for improvement, however: their grip. Although adequate in cranial adhesion, other sport-specific pairs such as Radar prove to be more slip-resistant during rigorous activity.

Frame: POLISHED BLACK
Lens: +RED IRIDIUM POLARIZED

what can i say with the design... its new and sleek and will eventually take time to be accepted in the line of sunglasses because of its loud lens aggressiveness look. i am really amazed with the technology that oakley used in the indtroduction of the switchlock technology. very nice grip in the head eventhough that it has a small arm holding firmly in the head. very customizable lenses. hopefully we can also customize the oakley logo and the thru bolt in time through online purchase. one thing i found is that you have to be very careful when you rest your jawbone in the case. extra lens may hit the primary lens in the jawbone. i really dont know how to settle it good in the case. i found that laying it upside down is a little bit moving sideways but if upright it is also forwarding touching the extra lens in the front. you might use the microfiber to protect it in the case. and make use of the center extra lens pocket to really protect na primary lens. overall the jawbone really rocks. not just only in sport but also as a lifestyle piece.

Frame:Polished Black
Lens:+Red Iridium Polarized
If I could give these a 4 and a half I would because these are a very revolutionary frame with tons of versatility. The coverage is awesome and they seem to have a pretty good grip despite the shorter earstems. They come in some very unique color combinations and the lens options are very unique also. The only things I can see that are slightly off as far as this frame is that while riding a bike it is somewhat difficult to look down because the bottom of the frame is in the way. This is why I still feel the Radars are the best biking frame. The only other thing is that the case for the Jawbone has slots for two sets of lenses, but keeping the extra lenses in the outer slots can scratch the sunglasses while taking them in and out of the case. These are just minor things and I'm sure Oakley is already working on them, but these are overall a groundbreaking frame.

Frame: Matte White
Lens: VR28 Black Iridium

Looking at the jawbone shades the matte white immidiately caught my attention. The VR28 lense is great in all light conditions and really adds to bring out the frame. They are very light and the lenses are easily interchanged. Not sure when I would wear the persimmon lense but it is a cool add none the less.

Frame: Matte White
Lens: VR28 Black Iridium & Persimmon

It was agonizing choosing between this color and the Retina Burn. The only thing that swayed me was that the Retina Burn green is too close to Kawasaki green. I'm a Yamaha guy so I couldn't see myself going over to the green side.

These have amazing fit. Comfort-wise, these are second only to the Romeo 2. They're very light weight though the Flak/Half Jackets are just a tad lighter for a sport specific frame. The large frames provide great coverage. They sit very close to your face all around and, on me, just barely touch my cheeks. But not uncomfortably so. Giving up the half rim framed from the Flak/Half jackets required going big with the frames to give you a similar field of vision. It works but it also limits the face types/sizes that can wear these.

The Half Jackets hold on a bit better than the Jawbone. But the Jawbone holds better than the Flak Jackets by far. I never understood why Oakley shaped the earstems on the Flaks so straight.

Changing lenses on these are a no brainer. No bending, stretching, twisting or snapping required. Pop the nose bombs off on their hinges and the jaw drops open with no resistance. The lenses slide out and the next set slides in. I can't wait until the lens kits become available.

Included in the package are 2 sets of lenses (Persimmon is the backup pair in this case). You also get another pair of nose bombs that are bigger in case you need the frames to sit a little further off your face. A molded nylon case is also included. The microfiber bag is unique to the Jawbone with special graphics and a 2 section pouch integrated to carry a second set of lenses.

They certainly aren't cheap but I'd say they're the best sports glasses Oakley has produced to date.

Frame: Retina Burn
Lens: Vented Black Iridium

No photograph can capture the vivid nature that is retina burn.

I really appreciate this colour combination on the field. Not particularily useful for common day use (but that depends on your style) however in the environment for which these were made these guys flourish.

Extremely comfortable, light, secure, durable, large orbitals (larger than the Pit Boss & MD) providing great coverage, stylish are some of the properties I would use to describe these. The Switchlock technology is unique and the ease of lens replacement makes me egar to purchase more. They have a deep wrap thereby allowing them to sit close to the face making them visually pleasing on medium and possibly small headsizes.

The case provided is nice compartmentalized (i was not expecting this) for the glasses and 2 sets of replacement lenses. The microfibre bag is nicely patterned with sketches of certain jawbone features. The microfiber bag also has a separate compartment for replacement lenses, a feature I have not seen in other microfiber bags before.

I have not tested them out on the field yet but given its characteristics I do not expect to be disappointed.

Good fit. Outrageous look. I wear them in uniform (soldier). Colored the jaw bolt black, looked better that way. Purchased the vented black iridium polarized (need the darkest lens, wish they made darker) and the positive red iridium polarized (just for kicks). love these, fit is outstanding. They dont fog and the wind doesnt blow through the nose piece on your eye.

Frame: Custom/Team Orange

I customized my Jawbones in complete orange. I prefer the Team Orange version to the Atomic Orange version. The Team Orange is much more stronger looking color. They fit perfect and look great. I'll wear them a lot while cycling this season.
Oakley Doakley -
Frame: BMX Chrome
Lens: Jade, Violet, +Red

Fit... if you have never tried on a pair of Jaw's, do so. They fit superbly. Even better than Straight Jackets I think. They fit loose but snug... hard to explain... maybe it's because they're SO light yet they fit the contour of my face SO well. You hardly know they're on. They don't move either.

So, greatness of fit aside, I was debating between this set, and the Atomic Orange set. Despite the higher price tag, these facts pushed me over the edge and made me get these instead:

1) Exclusivity... limited edition, hell, Oakley website doesn't even sell them yet. Limited production run. They JUST got in one of our stores here. I found out after calling them, and bought them right over the phone and had them send it to me. The clerks were actually ticked that I bought it before them... lol. So yeah, these things are rare, and might be worth more a few years down the road...not that I'm planning to sell them.

2) 3 sets of lenses, 3 sets of earsocks to match... In essence, I'd be getting 3 sets of glasses for the price. I planned to switch ear socks every time I switched lenses, but I decided to order black ear socks instead (more on this issue later). All 3 lenses are vented, and are not available as accessory lens purchases from Oakley. So again, exclusivity applies here too. I think all 3 lenses look cool, but I'd have to go with the Jade ones as the coolest, since I don't own a pair of Oakleys with that lens color yet.

3) Chrome frame... couple that with the matte black jaw, and it's an eye grabber. The chrome goes well with any lens. And again, you can't get this color chrome on any jawbone, custom or regular.

I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 because I had issues with some peeling that happened after attempting to switch ear socks. I obviously want to switch ear socks to match the lenses, but after just owning them for a day, the ear socks caused the frame to peel a very thin film of plastic. The ear socks themselves are a ROYAL PAIN to put on. I wish Oakley would have designed a better way to get these socks on, whether it increase the tolerance on those socks or changing the smaller to larger frame diameters during the sock installation process. Needless to say, I had to call Oakley and send it in.

I also had an issue with the violet lens having an "etch" mark in them... sort of like a water spot. I sent those in as well to get fixed. So right now, I am anxiously awaiting for them to return...

I am still please with Oakley's overall quality and customer service, as this is the first pair I have had issues with (I own/owned 9 pairs over the last 10 years).

In summary, 4 out of 5, for some quality issues, but kudos to design, form, fit, function, and exclusivity.

Frame: Polished Black (Livestrong Edition)
Lens: Black Iridium + Yellow (both vented)

This is by far the best innovative design Oakley has ever made. I have been a collector of Oakley eyewear for almost 13 years now (with my old ones still intact and still using it), and this Jawbone is one rare specie that was ever created. The fit, contour, lens, design are above par. It is somewhat a distant predecessor of the Racing Jacket plus all the new innovations, so to speak. The "Switchlock" design revolutionized the Jawbone, thus, making it the best design ever created by Oakley (personally). In addition to that, the fuctionality of the switchlock is effortless and secures the lens superbly, Moreover, the package comes with a soft vault case, extra lens with its own pouch, extra switchlock nosepads and pouch for the jawbone. However, I will concur with some of the guys that the earstems are a bit small considering the size of the orbitals..
Dwcfastrice -
Frame: POlished Black
Lens: PErsimmon / +REd Polarized

Excellent design idea. They're a bit big for my face. I swore I'd never buy a pair and would stick with my Radars. BUt I got a huge deal on one of these and decided to give it a fair chance.

Technically, the Jawbone's fast lens swapping ability has totally sold me on the design. Wearing them, they still look a bit odd and bit non traditional. After you wear them for a while, they do tend to trend towards the side of "fashion". I think it has to do with the BIG Lens size so they do look like the Oversize glasses that are popular.

A day after purchasing these, I wore them for 3 hours playing volletball in 90+ degree heat with 90%_+ humidity. For such a small amount of unobtanium on the ear stems, these glasses STUCK to my face. No mmatter how much jmmping, head shaking, diving, etc. I did, these glasses DID not move.

Functionally, I would give these 5 out of 5. As for the "look", these are more function over form and are extremely unique. I'd give them a 4 out of 5 for the look.


Great pair, especially for sports.

Frame: Red
Lens: Photochromic

Jawbones are poor designed cycling glasses with blind spots. Lenses are good but that is the only thing with these glasses. They are only designes for a specific sized face and the additional nose pieces are useless as well. The price for what they are is out rageous. I would tell anyone to go for a ride and try before you buy as you will most likely change your mind

Frame: Polished Black w/Red Bolt and Metallic Red Logo
Lens: OO Red Iridium Polarized & Persimmon

Great solid feeling design with no pressure points and all day wear possible. I was initially sceptical if the design suited my face when trying on the retina burn and atomic burst colour schemes, but, when I tried the matte and polished black frames I found that the design fit my face and looked good enough for casual use instead of just sporting use. I hardly feel the weight on my nose and it feels lighter than all my Rudy Projects. The lens change mechanism is very easy to use, but, from a few bad reviews about peeling nose pieces I am very careful when flipping the nose pieces.

I am asian and I do not need an asian fit version. Asian fits are really only for people with very wide flat faces as the bottom edge of the jaws will dig into their upper cheeks. This fits my head perfectly and no matter how much I move around or sweat it does not move at all, those sticky rubber nose and ear pieces really do grip your skin. Eye coverage is great as it has enough space around so it doesn't touch my face at all and there is no light leakage from the outside. Using the standard nose pieces I am not able to shove the frame completely onto my face as I have long eye lashes so it touches the lenses and I find this annoying, so, my solution is to just move the frame a fraction of a millimetre away from my face and problem solved.

I think that these frames are very expensive so only you can decide if what they offer is worth it.

I have to say that this is the best sunglasses frame I have ever used, it is more comfortable than the Racing Jackets which didn't fit me perfectly as it sat askew on my face. I am very happy with it as well as the lens package. The OO Red Iridium polarized is an amazing lens even with its limitations go and I have a review of it in the lens section.

If I ever have to buy a replacement I would go full custom, so I guess that shows how much I like this frame.

This pair of glasses is hella comfortable and definitely great for going out on your bike, going for a run, etc. I only kinda wish that I hadn't gotten the Livestrong pair because the yellow is a little too much to be able to wear these out anywhere just casually. I keep hoping Oakley will start selling just the jaws separately, but no luck yet!

Weight 30 gm. Of course, the feature of these is the fact that they are (among) the first gen jawbone (type) of quick change glasses which must have made millions for Oakley due to sales of spare lenses!! They are simple to customise and to swap lenses, which was always a difficult feat (comparatively) with previous (and subsequent) Oakleys. Eye coverage is superb, making them excellent for most outdoor sports. I use them for skiing, cycling and general streetwear and they are both functional and look fantastic. Overtime, the earsocks distort and "over run" their positions (they stretch). Apart from that, a great looking pair of sunglasses which are easily customisable. The jawbone parts can be interchanged with the "wind jackets" and the "split jackets". Oakley sold tons of these, so you can pick them up second hand easily and cheaply! For those that are wondering, the main difference between this and the later "racing jackets" (with folding arms) are that the arms had a small hole on the ends for a lanyard/strap. Of course, slightly different colour combos came out in the racing jackets as well.

Frame: Silver (04-209J)
Lens: Slate/Clear Vented
I saw this at a sports store and tried them on. I must say these are a very good pair of shades. Fits just right, you can easily forget you're wearing them. I like thinner frames/semi-rimmed models more though, so seeing the frame while looking below kind of bothers me a bit. But the switchlock style works very well and that's one of the things that drew me to it. The printed microfiber bag with lens pockets are also a nice touch. The Slate Iridium lenses that doesn't seem to be available as accessory lenses are amazing. Although not very helpful during clear days, it gets the job done on other conditions.

I got a great deal for these and am now wearing it while typing this. I intended to rate it 4.5 but since there is no such rating, I just rounded it up.

Frame : Is sick. Really sick. It give the BATMAN attitude, mysterious, powerful and edgy. Frame Cuts and Lines are really sleek and powerful. The Bolt plus the "O" compliments each other.

Black Iridium Lens : These pair of Lens compliments the Matte Black totally. everything the Matte Black Jawbone design exhibits these pair of Lenses accentuate. Function-wise, very consistent with minimal to non-existent tint shifts.

Yellow Lens : Does what it is supposed to do but sadly these Lenses give me migraines and I dont know why. Maybe its just me. Id prefer the VR28 here.

First ride in the Jawbreaker, 40mi... (CVNDSH Polished Black/Prizm Road) here's my Review (as a Cyclist/Rider)

Field of Vision: Exceptional, unobstructed views; everywhere I looked was PRIZM Road. The view normally obstructed by the Radarlock frame is nearly nonexistent; a huge improvement over the Radarlock. I could see the edge of my helmet and it felt as if I was in my own cockpit behind this lens.

Lens: PRIZM Road is amazing; venting on this lens far exceeded what I was expecting; had very minimal sweat on the back of the lens after the ride. The sweat that was there was only at the bottom left & unnoticeable; bottom left & right of the lens also provide unobstructed view when looking back over your shoulder for traffic. No sweat landed on the back of the lens in my field of vision the entire ride. That is AMAZING! Last thing a cyclist wants is a dried sweat drop on the inside of a lens while riding. There is also a cutout in the lens channel to prevent sweat pooling; common with the Racing Jacket. I had no issues with my contacts drying out... which I never do with my Oakley Sport Frames.

Frame: Almost weightless; at times I forgot it was there; I am still getting used to the different fit coming from the Radarlock & Racing Jacket. The adjustable stems are nice, had mine in all the way and they just cleared my helmet strap; and they're much thinner and can comfortably slide under the helmet strap if needed. At times I felt that if I looked down, they would fall off, but they didn't. They sat securely on my face... have a feeling it's because of they're reduced weight.

Fit: I used them tonight with the installed nose-pads; I felt as if I needed more during the ride as I wanted the frame even closer, more snug, to my face. But doing so pushed the frame into my nose bridge. Sure enough, when I opened up the box, the spare nose-pad was thicker... so I'll be using that one on my next ride. Even though I have a large nose, my nose bride is thin.

i have this finish on my half jackets, which are my favorite pair i wear them almost everyday. these frames look great you cant go wrong with this one.

I like this frame color alot more than black or matte black. I have this on my ruby twentys and my half jackets, it prety much looks awsome with any lens.

A shiny version of the normal oakley black frame. it makes a nice change if you have alot fo the normal black frames but its not hugely different. just a slight gloss coating.
i have this on my XLJ which i think is the best choice as it goes with everything.
specially with the Ruby lens which is shown in the twenty.

The Jet black is a very good choice amongst the other black colors. I think the Jet black is the best black you can get in Oakleys. It has a glossy finish and looks really good with any color lens.

I have these in the Straight Jacket Jet Black Flames/Emerald Iridium.
fookin awesome, i love the flames and the black and the green go so well together these scream badass. loved them so much got the gunmetal/flames version aswell.
TERRORISM -
The green flames were taken from Oakley's initial idea from the black flames on the polarized fire version of this sunglass, but the application was applied billiantly nonetheless. With a jet black background (frames), just about any color of flames would look great. The aesthetic color fade from light to dark green makes the flames even more interesting, as does the silver icon instead of a matching green color.

Paired on a new Straight Jacket with Fire Iridium Polarized, this is one of my favorite frame color styles. Ignoring actual frame options (though straight jackets are great), I think the flames are a fantastic design for a frame. Something truly different from Oakley.
TERRORISM -
The flames were a great idea that Oakley used to their advantage... and the orange/red hues look fantasic against the black background on this pair. Five skulls.

The flame is great because of the change of colors. It goes from an orange flame to a red flame. Even the "O" changes color too!

Heck yeah this is exactly what I ndeeed.

I had a friend in Junior high school with Joker Eye Jackets. Joker is an eye cathing color, but it looks too non-Oakley to me for some reason. It is like someone took Black gold (a very attractive color by the way) and tuned it way up until they came out with Joker. It also lost a point for its name.
LEX7 -
very underestimated frame colour, cos in normal light they just look green but as soon as the sun hits them you get an amazing bright green with gold sparkles in. i love these on my eye jackets.
banarno -
This colour is a much more vibrant lighter green than the colour Moss,and has a gold metallic colour mixed in, that shines in sunlight.
Looks awesome with Gold Iridium.
TERRORISM -
Not sure why they call this color "Joker", but the name somehow fits the colorway of emerald green with a metallic finish. Looks excellent paired with Gold Iridium.

A classy and blinging watch with a nice weight that reassures you both of its style and its price. The watch was bought as a graduation present (to myself) and I find it hard not to look at it all the time. Is this watch worth it? Definitely. Would recommend also the Large Soft Watch Vault as it fits perfectly should the need arise to take this watch off (God knows why)

The must have Judge for me, as other colourways look too similar to the GMT. Though the body is slightly deeper than the GMT.Same sapphire crystal as the GMT so very hardwearing.

Wow, this is a beauty, unique color combo. This watch is heavy, Although I haven't weighed the watch, It feels slightly lighter than my Blade.
If you like loud. this is for you. Thew only comment I'd have on the negative side is... You can buy a replacement Black Leather band for the Honed Judge, but for the Copper, the only choice you have is a brown leather band, to match the chrome. Not really nice. Otherwise, if you want to wear as is....this is the one to get

This watch has a style all its own. People see it and have to comment on it. It's a bit imposing really. It's the kind of watch that makes you feel like everyone is checking you out. I love the bracelet and clasp - very cool. Personally, the copper dial has the most "bang".

what can i say? the Polished/Copper Judge is awesome! it's quite weighty, feels like a solidly built piece of equipment. the Judge is beautifully designed, and it's definitely an eye catcher. it looks aggressive, even slightly intimidating, so it's definitely not an everyday watch. but still, when you wear it, everyone will take notice.

A superb watch. I love the face design and the copper color. The date is much easier to read compared to all other analog watches. My only gripe is that the band is the same as my GMT, which has made justification to get the Judge difficult to make.

Beautiful Watch love to wear it as much as my time bomb only problem is this thing is heavy and after wearing a time bomb daily for a year it kinda takes some time to get used to the weight of this watch. The second hand also kind threw me off as it does not move ( so i thought the watch was defective) unless you press the top button and it is in what i guess would be "chronograph" mode

This is a beautifull watch. It is as pointed out very heavy though and because my wrist size falls just between 2 adjustments of the wristband so it's constantly slipping down. I dont mind that really. I was somewhat more disappointed to see "S Steel china bracelet" printed on the wristband. I thought Oakley was all made in USA. I would also liked to have seen an alarm function. Lastely: with a watch this imposing it would have been nice to have a real leather case instead of vinyl but maybe that is too much to ask.

Frame: Stainless Steel Honed
Face: Blue

Hopefully people wont judge, if you exscuse the pun, the blue faced judge from the stock image on O.com as it is way better looking than that. Lighter than the blue dials used on the icon and TB it's more like the electric blue used on the detonator. Wisely Oakley decided to go with the honed casing rather than the polished SS as i'm not sure it would have looked right. For me this combo has displaced the copper as the judge to have.

This watch may be pricey but it is worth every penny. Just look at it in person. I have had this watch for a while. The frame can get scuffed but is not too noticeable due to the polished characteristic. I found and peers agree that the watch works in both a casual and professional attire. I have not had a problem with performance. The watch is heavier than any watch I own but it is not a problem it adds to its robustness. I am tempted to get the stealth version of this watch. It is that good.

I got this watch as a wedding present from my wife. An awesome present and I loved it and got tons of compliments. The stealth black coating completely wore off the band where my wrist rested on the table in less than 3 months and the clasp wouldn't stay closed. But I still loved it. Then about a month later, I found it on the floor next to my coffee table which is about two feet high. The face was completely cracked and spiderwebbed underneath. This is supposedly impossible to break sapphire crystal. I called Oakley and sent it in for repair - five weeks later and MANY phone calls telling me this was normal wear not covered by warranty I paid $150 to get it back. The clasp and face were repaired and I was happy again. However, three weeks or so later another chip in the face appeared out of nowhere. Refusing to pay another 150 I wear it as is. It looks awesome if you don't notice the chip. If you want an awesome looking watch that apparently needs to be wrapped in padding if worn outside of a soft cotton room, this is what you want. But being a doctor and not a construction worker normal wear was obviously WAY TOO much for this watch. Also, Oakley was VERY uncooperative with repairs and I think there is a defect in the crystals they use. Still I am an Oakley fan and recommend their products but they need to stand behind the durability of their product - especially when it costs $650.

This time piece feels luxurious on your wrist and draws many compliments each day. I simply love this watch. I have worn it religiously for nearly a year now. It does show signs of wear on the band and I plan to replace in the near future and wear it a little less often...GREAT WATCH.

I was able to pick up the Honed/Black and White Leather of SAC for $190. First off, this watch is beautiful. I have two minor complaints, though. First, the band seems a bit small for a decent-sized person. Second, the chronograph doesn't seem to keep accurate time. Even though the instructions indicate that each 360 degree rotation of the minute hand of the small dial is 30 minutes, and the hour hand is one hour, each rotation is uneven, and the hour hand counts 30 minute intervals. The last bit is that the second hand on the main dial only works in chronograph mode. I'd be willing to give up the chronograph to make the second hand work normally. So, my dilemma is that I either put up with the chronograph being no right, or I deal with the second hand never counting seconds. I guess I'm OCD when it comes to watches.

Frame: Stainless Steel Honed/Black Leather
Face: Black/White

Snagged this one for over half off at the Vault. Great classic styling with the honed metal on black leather. The dial and hands are way more "Oakley" than on the Judge models that followed. Any watch can have straight arrow looking hands; this one has little blades and second hand that looks like a Halo weapon. The white face with the black trim are an excellent contrast and the face looks and is really big. The date is very easy read at a distance. My one and only beef is in the Strap; it has two loops for affixing, one of which is right next to the buckle and it makes it hard to initially slide the strap through after closing the buckle. Otherwise, a fine time piece.

Polished/Copper Stainless Band

I'm lovin' this watch! It's extreme, yet classy. The face is relatively simple, yet just different enough to not be boring. The spinal kind of look to the band is also awesome. The polished finish is flawless. The way the band is connected with unubtainium is a really nice touch and helps with comfort as well as keeping a hefty watch from being more heavy than is necessary. The date counter is big enough to see easily as well. A very functional and beautiful piece! 5 skulls :^)

I own this watch and love it. I received it as a gift after a good hint I left on my significant other. It definitely stands out in the crowd and has been called very "loud" by some of my friends. I didnt pay the list price ($825) but instead got an extrememtly good deal. well worth the price I paid, sturdy, heavy, and an eye catcher.

I have the black dial but the 2nd time also has a black dial. The leather strap is great---this is my first leather strap watch, ever. I have the GMT, crankcase, crush 2.0, and D2. All of these are great and have their specific purpose. The Judge II Dual Time is my dress watch. it's very classy yet doesn't have any over the top features. The face is easy to read. I have a VERY small wrist and this fits it perfectly. I don't like the first loop to clasp the strap, though. It seems like it'll tear. Still, a great watch, though. The 2nd time zone is great for those who travel and want to know the home time. The watch is pretty heavy but it's a men's watch. I like to know it's there. I'm hoping it'll compliment my girlfriend's white crankcase small leather strap edition. VERY classy, Oakley!!!

Bought this watch also during the great *0% off oakleyvaul.com sale a few years back. I like the copper color way and the 2nd time insert gives it a wow factor. Having relatives live on another continent helps you track their local time.

Frame: Polished
Lens: Fire Polarized

I did not plan on adding Juliet's to my collection, but I got a great deal on eBay ($149) that was just too good to pass up. The polished frame is a work of art. Interesting that the polished frame is only available with the Romeo/XX style 'Hammer' ear stems while the other frame colors have straight ear stems. It takes a little while to get used to the flex couplers, but these definitely stay put. Fire Polarized has a greenish tint that can be a bit too bright for really sunny days, but it is a good all-around tint.
Jonathan Tung -
Frame: X-metal
Lens: Black Iridium

I love these glasses. I've had mine since 98, and the serial number is 001941, so I consider myself pretty lucky. I first got them from a friend of mine who, at the time, worked at a Sunglass hut at the Mall of America in Minnesota and had overstock of the X-metal frame color. This is about when most people went nuts over the plasma/fire color scheme.

I've sent my Juliet's (these ones, anyhow) back to Oakley twice, both times to get the bridge to orbital sections retightened. They've since not given my any problems. The lenses are still the ones back from 98, though, so they've seen a lot, but are still quite decent.

I've heard a wide range of complaints about these glasses---they're too heavy, too ostentatious, too pricey, etc. I've never noticed the weight too much at all, but I wear a lot of sunglasses--not exclusively Oakley--so I have a pretty good range of experience, and I must be biased. Second, I took care of the ostentatious part by buying the least flashy color combo. And thirdly, I bought mine for 50$.

These are effectively my favorite Oakley sunglasses. I wear them all the time. They might be dethroned by the A-wires, but that's a long shot.

I felt that for many years, the popularity and the immediate recognizability of the Juliet made it the quintiseential Oakley sunglass--basically the sunglass the pride and joy of Oakley much like the Arista/g-15 lens Aviator is the trademark of Ray-Ban.

In closing, the Juliets, as well as being the sunglasses most associated with the Oakley visage today (before it was probably straight jackets, zeros, and M-Frames), they are one of the few sunglasses out there on the market that actually look better in reality than they do in photographs--which is exceedingly rare!

Lens: Ice Polarized

Best.
Glasses.
Ever.

I did not plan on buying Juliet's either, but I got a good deal of 40% off of a brand new pair from a store that was backing out of Oakley. Morons. Then I did a back flip and scratched them. So, I sent them in and had the blue lenses replaced with Ice Polarized. Second best color scheme, after Rubies, of course.

I baby these things like crazy. They are moderately comfortable, and they tend to let some light in around the edges, but they look so awesome that it is worth losing my peripheral vision. They do tend to stretch out at the bridge, and need to be sent in for a $20 tune up periodically. But hey, how else is Oakley going to stay in business?

Dethroned by A-wires?!?! That is one hell of a long shot.

Frame: Plasma
Lens: Emerald

I didn't like any of the frame/lens combos that featured the Emerald lens when it first hit as a Sunglass Hut Exclusive until the Juliet. It seemed to fit so well with the Plasma Juliet frame. More so then the Fire or Ice did for me. Not to say I hadn't noticed Juliets before but this is the pair that woke me up. The Juliet is kinda rigid going on but sits so well at all 3 points. The lens shape was great, slimming it down from the Romeos size and playing it off the XX (Twenty) and A-Wire rounded rectangle. It's as if they are O-Matter and Titanium twins. I definitely liked the straight ear stem on these and the flex in the nose. Emerald Iridium was great. It was a bluer lens to look through with the coating being more gold at times and pale green. Not overpowering at all. A great wear until I traded over to Switch. I had a very low serial as well.

The 1st generation plasma is not recommendable to persons who sweat a lot and are "acidic" as the color of the frame blemishes, unlike the 2nd gen of plasma which has a darker and more metallic color than the 1st gen. But the fire lens of the 1st gen plasma is better as they really take the fire color look unlike the 2nd gen which is more like 24k at a certain angle.

I've wanted Juliet's since the day they became available, even before I saw then in the X-men movie (I didn't even realize those were Juliet's at the time) I've never spent more then $10 on sunglasses before, but when I saw these, I started lusting after them for years. They are what got me (and probably most people) into Oakleys. If a person doesn't do a double take on you while wearing these glasses, they're either color blind or just blind. Ever since I've started to collect all the lenses and Frame options. Reason it gets a 4 instead of 5 is because of the ungodly and somewhat unjustified price, but otherwise these are the best things I have ever seen.

Frame: Carbon
Lens: VR50 Black Iridium

The Finito's are a real nice pair of shades. The carbon frame looks great with the VR50 Black lenses. The tint is quite light, so they wouldn't be ideal for a super bright day, but they are still great for a wide range of light conditions. The light Black Iridium mirroring over the brown VR50 tint gives the lenses a copper/bronze appearance at certain angles. The straight ear stems on this model fit my head better than the Hammers on the Polished Juliet's. Overall, a great product and worth the $200 I spent on them.

Frame: Carbon Juliet
Lens: Black Iridium

This is actually my absolute favorite color scheme for the Juliet's. The red really stands out, and carbon is my favorite frame color. I actually modified mine to have some custom Ruby lenses, but I love the standard default color scheme as well. I'm thinking of buying another pair of these just so I can have one with the regular scheme, and one with my ruby lenses :)

The best shades I have ever owned!! I bought these in Bermuda in 99 and have just had the lenses replaced by Oakley UK in 2004, that's not bad going. It's taken me 6 months to bring myself to part with them and send them off for repair. Replacement lenses are readily available on eBay (beware of fakes) get yourself a T6x50 screwdriver and your away. Black iridium lenses are hard to come by on eBay, that's why I sent them to Oakley. These are very special sunglasses indeed.

STARS: *****

I bought my Plasma/Ice Juliet's in Jan 2001 and they are still in great condition. The ear stems are a lot looser at the hinges and I had to replace the ear socks with the replacement kit Oakley sells. The lenses are still in great condition, but as stated further down the page, the '1st generation' (what're these, ipods?) plasma frames have this weird discoloration effect when they mix with dirt/sweat.

I bought my Xmetal/Black Juliet's off eBay because a) they were cheap and b) I love the Juliet design but I wanted something more subdued in appearance. The X-metal frame is an awesome colour and the black lenses will match any outfit.

I also bought a pair of Juliet's with Ruby lenses but I sold them to my friend as I didn't like the red colour of the lenses (definitely not the same colour as worn by James Marsden in X-men).

Great glasses though! Don't pay retail, scour eBay for a good deal.
apostrophe -
Frame: Plasma
Lens: Ice Iridium

Used to go through sunglasses like crazy. Then in 2000 I decided to drop a bomb on the Juliet's (although these days I could probably get a much better deal on eBay), and never looked back. I've never had such comfortable, sturdy glasses. The style is pretty much perfect, after 4 years I love the look of them as much as when I first bought them.

The plasma frame is showing some black 'scuff' type discoloration and I've been told by Oakley that they will replace them under the lifetime warranty, so will have to do that when I can do without them for a couple of weeks.

Even with the frame metal discoloration I'm still giving 5 stars, and I'd give more if I could...

I'd say it would have to be the best pair of shades made by man. Nothing like a new pair when the fit tight. I own 2 pairs and planning to get more. Out of all my shades (10) they're still my favorite. Especially in RX b/c they have the best coverage with crazy raked back contours that they are essentially for anything. They look good for going out and yet stylish but grip well under the worst conditions while playing strenuous sports. BUY SOME, DO IT, DO IT NOW

Lens: fire iridium

i got em used. a friend sold me his oakley juliet.

the greatest fit. ever. they're absolutely the best. it's obvious the painful research and development Oakley has gone through for these. the material. the 20 something pieces that put together to form this masterpiece. they look heavy, feels heavy when you hold them, but hug you at the face perfectly without being too heavy at all on your face. i can't really say anything bad about these sunglasses. pretty everything is good about juliet.

also, at first i thought it was kinda big on my face, but after trying out xmetal penny, i immediately realise that juliet looks so much better(penny are really for small faces). so i think amongst all xmetals, juliets can accomodate the most range of face shape.

about the fire iridium lenses, although they look very aggresive and turn out quite to be a head turner(wait till i get my hand on those rubies, lol), they're a little to yellowish to my liking on the tint looking from inside. the increased contrast is nice, but overall, they're still too dark for medium/low light environment. i prefer the ice iridium at any time.

i only own one right now, but it won't stop me getting more of these juliets with other frame variants(envious of u ppl who collects all of them juliets! lol!).

i just hope Oakley will keep releasing the x-metals.

This is an absolutely sweet looking combo. I love the look of this setup. The Ruby lenses have a blueish look when you are wearing them. This is a good lens for any occasion. I personally found that these did not fit me as well as I had hoped. Too bad because they are so damn sweet. A bit on the heavy side, but indestructable frames.

Annoyingly too Small for my head/face why cant Oakley do this many colour combos in the XX X-metal instead of the measly 4 that are available.

When it comes to Oakleys, whatever model you may like, you cannot go on ignoring the beautiful lady, the Juliets. A piece of art, that raps even the flattest Asian face! These are just amazing. I particularly like the Ruby lens. They just show you the world from a differnt world. I also enjoyed the company of clear titaium lens that I luckily got off a dealer. What I am interested in the most is the Slate lens. They seem to be a sweet pair. It would be nice if they Juliets had the arms of Romeos. That would be cool... wouldnt you agree?

I recently finally got my hands on a pair of these. I was searching for sometime and I must say I was not disappointed.

The VR28 Black lens is a great lens for many different light conditions making this an overall great pair of Oakleys for just about any situation.

Bought these brand new on eBay for $255.00 and they're worth every penny and then some. These are hands-down the best of ANYTHING I've ever bought, no exaggeration. I've been enamored with the Oakley brand since I was in High School (early 90's) when I bought my first pair of E-Wires. Those eventually broke in an unfortunate accident, and the Juliets are only the 2nd pair of Oakleys I've ever owned (almost 10 years later). I was about to buy some straight jackets, but I'm glad I forked over the extra dough for the X-metals.

The frame is a marvel of engineering. It's solid, slightly weighty when you hold them, but when you put them on, they're perfect. The Ice Iridium polarized lens is the best part. I've worned cheaper polarized sunglasses in the past, and these blow them out of the water. It's probably more superior than the Maui Jims I bought on my honeymoon 3 years ago.

Summed up, you can't do better than Oakley Juliets (okay, maybe the Romeo 2.0's come a close 2nd). Best of all, they're made in the USA!

My first pair of Oakleys. I was looking to buy my first pair of sunglasses from Oakley but had little idea what kind of style I wanted. I was browsing around the site until I stumbled on the X-Metal line. Of all the X-Metals I found the Juliets the most attractive, but the steep price tag was making me a little hesistant to purchase them.

Went to an O store days later to actually try them on and my god they fit like a glove. I love how the Juliets hug my face that even when I shake my head, they stay firmly in place which is good for running or playing sports.

I was settled on the Juliets but had to choose a color. Ones that really stood out to me were Polished/Blue, Plasma/Ice, Plasma/Emerald. I decided for the Plasma/Ice combo but did not purchase the pair until weeks later. Finally decided to splurge for myself and bought these babies a few days before Christmas '04.

Wore them to school and all my friends noticed my new shades. Everything from the stunning ice blue lenses to the smooth curves of the orbitals and frame, my Juliets really stood out and I get compliments and stares from most places I go.

Now that I'm doing more Oakley research, I wish I got the X-Metal/Ruby combo (1st generation with the darker ruby lenses) when they were still offered but this pair will be my first and favorite.

Lens: Ruby

Probably one of the most sought after pairs of Juliets, and it's not hard to see why. They are gorgeous and unique, and fit almost anyone comfortably. The fist time I saw Juliets, I didn't think they were for me. I thought they were too much, but after I put them on, I fell in love with them. They aren't as cat eyed as the Penny, which is one reason I prefer them. While the ruby lens is beautiful, I don't like wearing it while I'm driving, because it seems to give a hazy blue look to everything, and I find myself distracted. Still, I give these glasses a 5 because they are simply...Oakley.

I actually bought these before I bought the Polished/Polarized model and I still love these.

I believe this is the most well-known combination of juliet. Lots of adjectives have been attached to the description of juliet already, that giving one will be redundant. The lens however is a matter of personal choice. Ruby is really stunningly loud and eye catching. If you are a conservative type, this is not for you.

These are definitely one of the more stylish X-Metals from Oakley. They fit nice and snug with the right tshocks but not uncomfortably tight. So basically, they don't give you a headache but you're not always worried about them falling off your face. They're durable and completely customizeable too. So you can change the frame and lens combos to suit your taste or mood. You can also replace the parts on them so if lenses or an earstem gets ruined, they're aren't just headed for the garbage. Very nice eye coverage as well. Covers the entire range of vision without compromising the peripheral field to much. They're good for sports and just to add some style to your day to day attire. Oakley definitely did their homework on this design!

Frame: Polished
Lens: G30

Though pricey, the Juliets are well worth the investment. For the price you're paying, make sure the hinges, flex couplers, and/or orbitals aren't overly tight or loose and that the amount of flex on both sides is balanced. I like the fact that extra temple shocks and nosebombs are supplied for a custom fit, not to mention that there are plenty of replacement lenses to choose from. These are solid glasses and indestructable. I personally like the weight of the glasses.

Initially, I thought I had to take the ear stems off in order to insert new temple shocks. In the process of doing so, one of the clear washers fell out and now I'm unable to put them back in. It doesn't affect the operation of the hinges though. DO NOT TAKE THE EAR STEMS OFFif you don't know what you're doing!!!

I purchased my pair slightly used but for a exceptionally low price. As a result, they're my beater pair. I can chuck them around, leave them in my car in sub-zero weather, etc ... and not worry about them.

The hammerstems are a nice touch though I don't think they serve any function in terms of fit and comfort.

Final thoughts: Purchase a pair and you won't be disappointed.

This particular combination of frame and lens looks great. I found them heavy though. I really don't like the cases available for the xmetals (not very practical). This particular lense is terrible though. I saw a lot of wierd reflections, etc. Not acceptable. I sent these back and got the titanium square wire with black polarized lenses. I'm much happier. Isn't one of the reasons they use titanium to make things lighter. Juliets were not light.

Frame: X-Metal
Lens: Ruby Iridium & Blue Iridium

Does the Juliet really need another review? Probably not, but what the heck.

The Juliet is not my favorite X-Metal, the Romeo 2.0 is. But I have 2 pairs of them anyway and one more on the way. What is it about these sunglasses that almost no one on the O-Review has just one pair? They are arguably the most iconic Oakley sunglasses. Which is ironic since they don't even have the Oakley Icon on them.

There is definitely a mystique to these sunglasses. An X factor that really can't be identified. Some kind of magnetism brings a mutant obsession to them. I'd wager that even if you only had one eye, you'd want to wear them. If you could control the weather, you'd make it sunny every day, just to be able to wear them.

Here's what I'd like to see in Juliet 2.0 that would make them worthy of a 5 in my book. First, hammer earstems. At least on my head, they're not purely an aesthetic improvement, they're functional in that they don't squeeze my temples as much. Second, put a freaking Icon on them! These are Oakleys, aren't they? Third and finally, just a tiny little bit more eye coverage.

Frame: Carbon
Lens: Black Iridium

The legendary Juliet.

Now, these are an absolutely beautiful pair of glasses, in more than one sense of the term. They look and fit great. They don't even fit me properly, which is an emminent problem with X Metals if you have Asian features but I have to say that amongst all the X Metals, these fit me best (and I've worn five out of six of them).

A great thing too is the number of frame and lens options. It's almost like an M-Frame; customise it to your needs! Get a different pair of lenses installed in your favourite frame, it's easy! Just grab a T6 screwdriver and a pair of lenses and you're all set. You're bound to get a combination that suits you.

But how's coverage? Not a problem. Up, down, left and right, you won't have any light leaking in to roast your retina.

If you ever needed to make one sunglass purchase in your life, get a Juliet. Even at retail. I wouldn't be surprised if that's the only sunglass purchase you'd ever have to make!

Frame: TiO2
Lens: VR28/Black

The flagship of Oakley sunglasses, the Juliet is truly a sight to behold and an incredible innovation in eyewear. This rendition consisting of a TiO2 frame with VR28/Black Iridium lenses is one of the best. Flex couplers, interchangeble nosebombs and temple shocks enable a customized fit, and the VR28/Black lenses provide protection in bright light - yet prove to be useful in most low-light conditions as well. The two-toned TiO2 frame completes this pair as one of the most visually appealing pairs of Oakleys ever produced.

Frame: X-Metal Juliet
Lens: Ruby

My second pair of X-Metals these have been on my wishlist for years and I finally managed to snag a pair of mint 1st Gen Rubies from a collector.

First impressions are just breathtaking. The lens are a gorgeous deep crimson with a hint of yellow at the edges. They seem to shimmer and, are you ready for this, they GLOW. Under low lighting these lenses appear to possess an almost supernatural eeriness. The quality of the glasses is as you would expect, the fit is flawless and the finish is exceptional. The blue tint is soothing but does tend to dull in anything but bright conditions but in regards to the attention you get, these are justifed in being the Holy Grail of Oakleys for many people. You get double takes and people just staring at the beauty of these lenses. My only reservation is that unless you wear black or red, these glasses can be a little too sporty looking and look odd in formal suits.
jamestcheung -
Frame: Polished Ichiro
Lens: Emerald Slate Iridium

My first pair of Juliets and are just amazing. They look expensive and the emerald slate lenses just perform amazingly well. Dark enough for usability but also light enough for all round wear the lenses have a gorgeous green tint with a light purple undertone and are much better than the standard emerald lens which looks black from a distance. The hammer earstems are just perfect and grip the face like a limpet but the tips can hurt with extended wear. There is also a defect with the Ichiros in that one arm is always higher than the other but it doesn't appear to effect fit all that much. If the Ruby Juliets are the Ferrari of sunglasses, these are the Aston Martin DB9's.

Hello, I have a really rare Juliet! It's an Oakley Juliet, Plasma Frame with Fire Lens. The speciality is the lens! It's one of the first Fire Lenses Oakley made and they are more red than the others. Oakley people told me that the production of the Fire Lenses wasn't easy in the first time and so they can't produce the same colour for all Fire Lenses. I don't know if this is true but my Juliet with it's rubin red lenses say it is!

I am really happy with these. Toyed with the idea of buying these since they came out but couldnt face spending £250 and I found that the sat rather tightly. Got them at a closing down sale in perfect condition. They had been in the shop for years and had slackened off with the amount of people trying them on which suited me nicely. X-Metal finish cant be beaten and the ruby lenses are the best ever. They do blemish easily though.

Bought my 1st pair off ebay in 2003 and haven't stopped since. I am an avid Oakley collector and by far, the Fire lens recieve the most attention and turn heads. For bright light, the black iridium lens are most soothing to the eyes and it's neat to be able to see through glare reflected on windows with polarized lens. My only regret is that I didn't discover the Juliets earlier and fork out the cash for every penny they're worth...mind you that the Oakley Valves, Splices and Mag Switch I own are great sunglasses too.

Perfect. The earstems were a bit tight on my head until I swapped out the temple shocks for a smaller size, after this they were just right. But this is reason they supply the spares in the first place. In my opinion, one of the defining pairs of glasses for Oakley. The fact that they've been around for so long just goes to show that they're a timeless design!

I love these glasses! My first pair actually had a defect I noticed when the outer part of both lenses started delaminating or flaking off. I called Oakley and returned them. I few days later I had them come back to me Fed-X. They replaced the lenses and polished the frames so they looked brand new again.

I actually wear other Oakley more than these. They are very heavy and I spend a lot of time around water. Let me tell you- these things sink fast! I was in Cancun last year when a wave ripped them off my dome and into the ocean (approx. 4' of water). I instantly started diving. After a couple minutes I was sure the current (very strong at the time) must have taken my Juliets... LUCKILY, a friend of mine showed up and on his first dive to check out the bottom showed up with my Juliets. I'll be forever greatful.

I wear them now on special occasions and keep them the in an X-metal vault most of the time. Clearly, the Rolex Presidents model of sunglasses!

When I saw the Ichiro 51 Carbon/OO Blue Juliets, I knew I had to have them. Discontinued, I looked to eBay. I failed to find a reasonable priced pair so I began to construct a similar pair.

I purchased Carbon/Black Pol. at an O Store and purchased the blue Unobtanium pieces and Ice Pol. lenses off eBay. I found a pair of OO Blue lenses but they were going for $170. I then found Ice Pol for $90. Not exactly the same blue but I kept to the orginal Black/Blue scheme.

I like to think that I have a very unique pair.

Anyways, they hold very well to the face. They are not exactly the most comfortable. I tried on my friend's XX's and they were so lightweight, I couldn't even imagine that I was wearing a pair. Juliets, on the otherhand, are a bit on the weighty side. Though, I have had positive comments on these sunglasses from everyone. And yeah they do look good!

Sometimes, I leave them on my desk just to adore them.

The lenses are sharp. I don't know if they could sharpen my surroundings but I get a feeling that they do.

My first pair was a pair of dark/black pol.. And I really have forgotten about them ever since I purchased these.

One of the finest models Oakley has produced (as evidenced by the vast array of versions available). The Juliet took the path that the original Romeo created and placed sunglasses on the next level. The Juliet is a slightly smaller frame, which fits most faces a bit better than the larger Romeo. It also features the nose bridge with flex couplers, which eliminate the stress that used to be put on the lenses in the Romeo. These two changes made for a much better sunglass for most people. My Juliets are my favorite pair to wear, as they are unmistakably Oakley, provide excellent coverage, fit my face very well. Now that I'm thinking about all the things that make the Juliet so special, I want to get another pair...

The Carbon frame is a nice darker color option. As with the Brown frame I think it does allow it to be used in more situations than a Polished or Plasma frame, in the sense that it isn't as flashy or an over the top type of finish. This frame option really rivals the Polished and Plasma in my opinion. It's fastly becoming one of my favorites.

Frame:Polished
Lens:G30

After several false starts I finally managed to acquire one of these beauties. I must say, the G30 lense has become my all time favourite. It is a stunning, stunning lense. I could reel off superlatives and wax poetic about these amazing lenses all day. Visually, the lense looks much more expensive than it is. Oakley consider this one of their cheaper lenses for some reason and that is a good thing as it is woefully underpriced and thus good value. At first look, you get a very pleasing pinkish brown tint with a gorgeous and subtle blue iridium hue that intensifies and combines with the lense tint depending on the angle you view it from. It's not as mirrored as other iridiums and looks almost like an anti-reflective quartz coating in its visual complexity. Very subdued but technically complex looking. This is subtle flashiness.

Looking through and it's amazing. Better than the legendary Maui Jim lense of similar hue, the soothing pink/sepia hues of the G30 cuts glare and enhances contrast to the point of silliness. Vision ends up sharper than 20/20 if that's possible. It gives warmth and glow to the world and because the tint is so light, you can wear these into the night with no trouble at all. The only downer is that when you take them off, the world looks green. Odd but true. I could get used to these and they are sure to become my everyday pair. If you need convincing, try a pair on yourself.

The Titanium frame is very similar to the plasma and for those unfamiliar with titanium & plasma would say the two are the same. I like the combination of Gold Iridium lens and brown rubbers, it give this model a distinct look.

Available polarized lenses, the ability to customize by changing lens colors or Ear & T-Shox colors. Limited Edition models! I could go on and on about how great these are. My only criticism is that they no longer put serial #'s on the arms.

Homage to the Juliet. Not quite as pleasing to me design wise as the Romeo, but more practical. One of the icons of the X-Metal line, just as the Straight Jacket was the Jacket icon; the E-Wire, the wire icon, etc.

Juliet is one of the few designs by Oakley that makes you coming back for more. It truly is a work where the science follows the art rather than the other way around which often times ends up into something of a shallow trend.

In my opinion, the Juliet is the perfect pair of sunglasses. Everything from the orbitals with the intake ports to the hammer earstems on the polished frames, to the flex couplers allowing unparalleled fit making it the most comfortable pair of sunglasses I've ever worn.... Nothing can beat the Juliets. Overall I like the Polished frame the best because the Hammer earstems make for a tighter fit, and I think they look a thousand times cooler. 3 out of 4 of my Oakley glasses are Juliets, and here's hoping I'll have many more!

Got my new Juliets and it feels oh so good. Carbon is an excellent finish and the fit is still so fantastic. A little rough going over the temple, but that was expected. The earstems look slimmer from the side and top where they meet the earsocks then my previous pair had. Even the black iridium lens isn't bothering me, but it's getting swapped out for a VR 28 Black real soon. I can't wait. Still and A+ Oakley. One of the best. However, it has no serial number and it only came with one extra pair of shocks (15s in pair and 25s in bag).

I know i said juliets looked dumb on me but i tried them on again recently and have since got 2 pairs.
these ones look totally kick ass, i changed the Blue Iridium lens for the Emerald which looks way cooler and then i threw on some Red Unobtanium which just looks amazing. the polished is a beautiful frame very bright and shiny.
so ive got some truly wierd lookin custom Juliets now.

Lens: Ruby Iridium
The GREATEST sunglasses ever created. The Juliet model has to be the most recognizable frame ever. Anywhere I go, even if people don't know anything about Oakley, they immediately know that these are Juliets. I love the flex couplers at the bridge. I think that is a great innovation. Also, the contoured orbitals make you insantly fall in love. The intake ports catch people's eye all of the time, including my own. Even though there's only a couple of grams difference in weight, these feel much lighter than Romeos. The nosebombs are a big improvement over Romeo, too. Anyway, I don't think I have enough room to keep going, so I will recommend these to everyone. I would like to see a Carbon/Ruby combo and maybe a Juliet 2.0 in the future, to keep the tradition going.

I have all the Ichiro line. He is my favorite baseball player and Oakley is my favorite apparel company so it was natural for me to own all of this line. I think the first generation (polished/blue) is the best looking of them all but they are all awesome. The carbon with blue is the rarest with, i think, only about 5,000 around. I got mine early but I saw some going for over $600.00 on Ebay. DAMN.

Been hunting and saving for these for years. Finally got them last year off eBay in excellent condition. Completely amazed at the fit and look of these beauties. Don't have anything to add to the countless praises already left by the other 90 reviews. Although, since I wear them a lot, I wore out the washer on the left ear stem. There are some plastic "shards" sticking out of the hinge. Trying to bring myself to part with them to get them fixed. I mean, come on....these are the best Oakleys out there.

Cool story: a guy I met had the same prob. He went to the Spectrum O-store, and the guy there offered to do the maintenance AND replace his gen1 plasma frames with the gen2 ones for free. Pretty much got a brand new pair of Juliets for $80 (he got new polarized replacement lenses too).

These are my first pair of Oakleys. For that, they will always be a centerpiece of my collection. On the more practical side of things, they are almost too nice for everyday use. I bought them to use for tennis, but I was too afraid of damaging them to get any real use. Also, they are quite a bit more heavy than my jackets so they don't have the same comfort level.

As if these need another review....But here it goes.

The Juliet is just the best pair of X-metals to date. The best comfort and the best looks. The Ti - Ti Clear combo make it a little bit more of a fashion pair whereas other combo's make it look sporty or aggresive. I'm glad I bought this pair, so that now I can walk with a pair of Oakleys when the sun isn't even shining!

Frame: Carbon Black
Lens: Ruby Iridium - Dark tint

Bought these originally with black iridium lenses - which did nothing to make the frames stand out. Ordered custom Ruby Iridium lenses with a darker tint - now these stand out like a Maybach in a parking lot. The X factor is definitely enhanced with these on. The best combination of X-metal color combos in my opinion. Also becoming rarer and rarer - which is good. If you can get this combo - I would definitely recommend going for it. Also the ruby iridium contrasts well with the carbon frame color - making the entire frame stand out.

Frame: Brown
Lens: VR28 Black
Actually, I give this a 4.75 but since it's not a choice so I rounded it off. The reasoning is because of just giving it a simple name and the brown is very similar to Carbon. There is very subtle difference depending on the lighting. I am planning to put the G30 lenses or a 3rd Generation Fire Polarized on these.

I am addicted to the Juliets. I have multiple pairs of these beauties and I can't say anything that hasn't already been said. I strongly urge anyone who doesn't already have a Juliet, to pick one up. I can't say which combo is my favorite, but I can give you my top 5: Carbon/24k, X-Metal/Ruby, 1st Gen Plasma/Fire, Polished/G30, & a 7-way tie between the other ones I own! The newer generation fire lenses don't particulary impress me. I like the fact that there are a few signature series and they are the foundation of my collection. I aspire to own as many of them as possible. I just can't think of any other pair of Oakleys that can compete with the J's. Everyone who tries mine on loves them. The rising price is the only criticism I have, but we all have priorities! Perfect score despite the fact they will take a big chunk out of your paycheck.

Bought the Ichiro Suzuki Emerald Slate Iridium glasses on eBay for a steal of a price and they are the best sunglasses on the market. Each year Ichiro sports a nice looking pair of glasses and this is my favourite model. (It appears he is now wearing Romeo 2.0s for the 2005 season....) Excellent buy, oustanding quality. Worth every penny. Take proper care of them and you'll have no problems.

The best sunglasses anyone could ask for!!! There so comfortable and they are the Ferrari of sunglasses. There so cool looking and never fall off. I ride my bike extremely and they do great. Hard to find replacement stuff for them but I did. Mine has a defect too! On one side wherer the nose peice goes there is a clump of titanium that shouldn't be there. I just modified the nose piece because it kept falling off. Weird that something so expensive has a defect. I still love them!!!

Frame: Plasma
Lens: Rx Black Iridium

I really love the design of the Juliet. I love how they look. I thought I would love these frames! When I got to the store and tried them on i was unsure. So rather than order a pair from O with Rx lens I purchased them as sunglasses. I got home and just wore them. I wore them out for 5 days straight. Got a lot of compliments but my peers thought otherwise. They told me "Ok, those are cool and all but they aren't everyday sunglasses" My parents agreed as well and thought they looked too outlandish. But I liked them but then again I did not. The hefty price tag made me want to keep them but as I thought it over I agreed. Its not everyday eyewear. As cool as they are I could not justify the price (i needed a pair of Rx sunglasses for everyday use and did not feel only having these would be good...) I went back to the store and returned them (cry). The total cost for a pair of Rx versions would have been $530 and I couldn't justify that at all.

I went with a more traditional frame (a la BORING to some of yous - Whisker) for my everyday Rx sunglasses and am very happy with them.

UPDATE: I got a pair of Rx Juliets in Plasma/Black. All I can say is the fit and finish of these things are top notch. I now wear these full time. They fit my face perfectly and I do get a few looks here and there and even a few compliments. I am very happy with these. I got these at a major discount. Long story. I bought a pair of used Juliets and sent them to Oakley for Rx lenses. They lost them and replaced them with brand new Plasma frames. I was very happy.

Frame: Polished
Lens: Ice Iridium Polarized

I have had my Juliets for almost 4 years now. These originally came with the Fire Iridium Polarized lenses. They were cool looking and combined with the polished frame got a a lot of compliments. But for whatever reason the lenses didn't work that well for me. I would reddish reflections off of the inside of the lenses sometimes if the sunlight was behind me. Others may have different experiences but when the lenses got scratched I replaced them with the Ice polarized lenses. I had those on my A-wires and I am a big fan. I will probably get a pair of Fire polarized lenses just to have and so that I have lenses that match my serial number. I don't mind the weight of the Juliets. When you are wearing them you forget about them. The only time I am reminded about the weight is either when I put them on my head indoors or carrying them in my hand. The weight for me gives it the feeling of solidity and quality. It's kind of like my Omega Seamaster Chrono watch. I have the stainless steel version and it isn't light at atll. But it feels solid and I'm not worried about it breaking, just like the Juliets.

Frame: X-Metal
Lens: Slate Iridium
Japan-only release on April 28, 2006 in commemoration of Japan's victory in the World Baseball Classic. Only 1000 produced. Seventy models released to Tokyo dealers. This is the 5th in the series of Ichiro Juliets. It marks the return of the serial number on the left arm as well as the first right-arm inscription. World Champ 06 is written on the right arm. The colorway is bland and the overall effect is a little underwhelming, however the collectibility factor is huge since there is a finite number of models released. Japanese retail price is 48,300 JPY including tax. These are running out fast and I wouldn't be surprised if they are all accounted for by the end of May. I was one of 3 people picking them up on the first day of their release.
Rick -
Frame: Brown
Lens: VR28 Black Iridium
What makes this model of Juliet unique is the limited numbers of pairs produced. I'd be very surprised if they made more than 500 of these. The brown frame does appear to be quite similar to the Carbon, but upon seeing it in person there is a distinct difference. This is a subtle color combination, but it has a charm all its own. If you can get one for a reasonable price, I would suggest picking one up.
Rick -
Frame: Carbon
Lens: 24k Gold Iridium
There is a story floating around out there that this is the Corvette Juliet. I don't pay much creedence to this since there has been nothing in the form of proof to back up this claim other than the mention that Oakley provided the first 50 pairs of these to a Corvette Racing Team. At any rate, this is a spectacular combination that is quite rare in North America. Originally, this was thought to be a Japan-Exclusive, however there have been reports of it availabilty in other countries such as Canada and the UK. This is the only combination of the Juliet availabe with the 24k Gold lenses and they really stand out in contrast to the dark carbon frame. A real stunner. Definitely a must for the Juliet aficianado.
Rick -
Frame: Carbon (Ducati)
Lens: Black
I'm a little bit tired of this one, since there seems to be a flood of them out there. Basically, it's a Carbon/Black combo with red earsocks and the word "Ducati" inscribed one the left lens. I guess they are attractive but I just feel they lacking in the personality department I much perfer the X-Metal framed Ducati since it at least has a little exclusivity that goes along with it. If you don't mind having a pair of Juliets that everyone else in the world has, or soon will, then go for it.
Rick -
Frame: Carbon
Lens: Black
This is a great option if you like the look and style of the Juliet, but you don't want a combination that attracts too much attention. There has been a bit of an issue with the quality of the flex coupler in recent releases. Be prepared for one side to be considerably looser than the other. This doesn't really affect the fit, but it is a tad disconcerting that a pair of glasses of this quality have imperfections. I suggest staying away from online purchases with this one due to the quality-control issue. This is a functional colorway that provides huge protection from bright light.
Rick -
Frame: Carbon
Lens: Black Iridium Polarized
This is the perfect pair of J's for the person who wants maximum performance with minimum attention being drawn to them. If you are sold on the style of the Juliet, but want to remain somewhat incognito, this is the pair for you. The polarized lenses are great for cutting down glare on snow, water, and concrete.
Rick -
Frame: Carbon (Ichiro)
Lens: OO Blue Irdium (Blue Iridium)
Oh yes, the infamous mystery Ichiro. Collectors still clamor to get their hands on this one. I have it on pretty good authority that this model was recalled by Ichiro himself. Not sure why, but rumor has it he was not a fan of th carbon frame. Seems strange given the recent release of an X-Metal-framed Ichiro, but nonetheless, this particular Ichiro remains highly sought after. Prices for this one can reach dizzying heights, but it is a must for any formidable Juliet collector. There has been much conversation about the differences between Blue and OO Blue Iridium and to be quite frank I don't make that distinction. I look at it like this: some Blue Iridium lenses are different in color-tone from others. Some seem more green, some seem true blue, some have purple tones, but they are all Blue Iridium in my book. I've owned three different specimens of this combo and all the lenses differed. Whatever the case, this is a highly-collectible Juliet that will frustrate the collector, but it is a historical piece of X-Metal history worth the money, time and effort it will take to acquire.
Rick -
Frame: Carbon (Finito)
Lens: VR50 Black Iridium
Ricardo "Finito" Lopez is an unlikey ambassador for Oakley. The recently-retired Mexican boxer compiled a professional record of 48-0-1 with 36 KO's, yet he remains virtually unknown in mainstream sporting circles. Well, that didn't stop Oakley from naming a Juliet after him. The Fintio Juliet is one of my all-time favorites. The VR50 lens is great in a wide range of lighting conditions.
Rick -
Frame: Plasma
Lens: Emerald Iridium
Not one of my personal favorites, although I do like the look of the Emerald Iridium lens. Overall, there a few detractors surrounding this release. I believe this was, at one time, a Sunglass Hut exclusive. The relationship between Oakley and SGH soured when SGH was acquired by sunglass distribution giant Luxottica. Models with the Emerald are now for sale everywhere. I'd say that this combo, along with the Plasma Ice are the most common ones you'll see. It's nice, but it's a tad too generic for me to give it full marks.

(Luxottica owns Ray Ban and we do not like Ray Ban)
Rick -
Frame: Plasma
Lens: Fire Iridium
I believe the Fire Juliet was the first Juliet that had a little flash to it. Original Plasma frames are quite a bit different from the recent ones. Duller in tones, almost a "boney" or "chalky" finish. I also perfer the earlier Fire lenses as compared to the recent ones. I have always been a fan of the Fire lens and this is one of my all-time favorites. I would suggest all collectors look into finding one of the originals though.
Rick -
Frame: Plasma
Lens: Ice
As I mentioned on my review of the Plasma/Fire combo, I prefer the earlier versions of the Plasma frame as compared to the later ones. The Plasma/Ice Juliet is, in my opinion, the most generic of all combinations. I see this combo more than any other and for that it loses points with me. The Ice lens is a great lens, but it is so common that it kind of bores me. Call me a snob, but that's just the way I feel. Way too many other interesting combos out there to spend your money on. I mean no offence to those who own this own - I own this and the Polarzied one myself.
Rick -
Frame: Plasma

A polarized version of the most generic Juliet on the market. It has a bit of flash to it and it works in medium to very bright lighting conditions. A bit too much on the "safe" side for me to give it full marks.
Rick -
Frame: Plasma
Lens: Ti Clear Iridium
Japan-only release back in 2002. Two thousand produced and very hard to come by even in Japan. Japanese clamor for anything with the designation "Exclusive" so finding one of these babies is very unlikely. Living in Japan has been a huge advantage, but it was still hard to track one down. The Ti Clear lens has its pluses and its minueses, but I find they are a great alternative on those overcast days that don't really require sunglasses. Yeah, there is a bit of an issue with "ghost" reflections on the inside of the lens, but these are easy to adjust to. The Ti Clear has a really slick silver look to it and I have become a huge fan recently. Combine its coolness with the fact that it is super rare and you can see why this was a must for my collection.
Rick -
Frame: Polished (Ichiro)
Lens: Blue Iridium
This was the first version of the Ichiro produced by Oakley. It has black unobtainium. It's pretty much identical to the non-Ichiro Polished/Blue combo if not for the special IS-serial #. These tend to go for more than retail since numbers were kept low. I think somewhere in the 2000-3000 range. A must for the Ichiro Juliet fanatic. Personally, I would have liked to see blue unobtainium on this one.
Rick -
Frame: Polished
Lens: Blue Iridum
Cooler and hard to come by than the ever-popular Plasma/Ice Juliet. I prefer the deeper blue of the Blue Iridum to that of the Ice. This is becoming harder to find these days as it was discontinued a while ago while hoards of Ice Juliets are still being sold. Identical in many aspects to the original Ichiro Juliet, but with a different serial prefix.
Rick -
Frame: Polished (Ichiro)
Lens: Emerald Slate Iridium
Quite simply the most beautiful of all color combinations. The Emerald Slate may not be great in bright light, but it is so pretty you just can't help falling in love with it. I really like the green unobtainium too. This is the 4th of 5 Ichiro Juliets. Some come with a serial # and some don't. I suggest picking up a serial #'d one if that sort of thing matters to you. I highly recommend this one and it is still widely available through Oakley and online.
Rick -
Frame: Polished
Lens: Fire Iridium
The vast majority of Polished/Fire combos I have seen are Polarized so this is a bit of an oddity. Most verisons of this one come with the recent version of the Fire lens which is more orange than earlier incarnations. It is a flashy pair that is sure to get some looks. You don't see this one for sale very often so if you are looking to build your Juliet collection, you should jump on this one soon before they all dry up.
Rick -
Frame: Polished
Lens: Fire Iridium Polarized
One of three polarized Juliets released. Black Iridium and Ice Iridium are the other choices. Out of the three I would probably put the Fire at the bottom. Why? Can't really explain other than saying I have all three but hardly ever opt for this one. This one is very expensive online for some reason. Don't be surprised to pay retail. Be sure it is polarized before pulling the trigger because Oakley did release a non-Polarized/Fire version.
Rick -
Frame: Polished
Lens: G30
People who try this pair on usually comment about how "pink" makes things appear. Maybe at first I would agree, but I have come to respect the G30 lens and I think this is one of the unsung Juliets that deserves more attention. It is similar in aspects to the VR50 Black Iridium. They seem to be becoming more availabe recently. Oakley markets the G30 as the perfect golfing lens, but I can't corroborate that claim since I hate golfing. Sorry Mike :(
Rick -
Frame: Polished (Ichiro)
Lens: Slate Iridium
Another stunning version of the Ichiro Juliet. This is the second incarnation of the Ichiro J. The Slate Iridium is like a cross between the Ti Clear and the Black Iridium lens. I like it. The blue unobtainium is a cool feature of this model. Some come with serials and some come without so you might want to confirm that before purchasing one (if that kind of thing concerns you).
Rick -
Frame: Polished
Lens: Ti Clear Iridium
The more flashy of the two Japan-only Ti Clear releases. Hard to find due to the low numbers produced. True versions have a JPP prefix on the serial. All Japan-only releases come with serials so beware of versions that claim to be real but don't have the serial number.
Rick -
Frame: TiO2
Lens: VR28 Black Iridium
This is a very popular version of the Juliet. Further proof that unique frame/lens option models are more desireable and respected than your run-of-the-mill Plasma/Ice and Plasma/Emeralds. The two tone frame is exactly like the one available on the X-Metal XX. The VR28 Black Iridium lens is another lens option that doesn't quite get the respect it deserves. It functions well in a wide variety of conditions and it provides a great deal of protection while looking good. At one point, I think everyone who has this combo has either swapped the lenses for ice or at least thought about it. I much prefer the original lenses although I must admit I did the swap back in the day. Either way, this is a great Juliet option that is worth the money.
Rick -
Frame: Titanium
Lens: Gold Iridium
Classy. Not much more to say. This is the only available Titanium frame version of the Juliet. There are some generational differences among Titanium frames. I prefer the earlier versions, but they are very rare nowadays. This version comes with the rootbeer unobtainium which subtlly differentiates this model from the rest.
Rick -
Frame: X-Metal (Ducati)
Lens: Black
The lesser-known and harder-to-find Ducati Juliet. This was probably replaced when the Carbon frame was introduced. Pretty much identical to the original X-Metal/Black Juliet released back in 1998, with the exception of the serial# prefix, red unobtainium, and the Ducati inscription on the left lens. I have seen that some people swap out their Black Iridium lenses for Ruby lenses - I am not a fan of this since it takes away from the originality of the Ducati theme. Keep your Ducati's Ducati's and keep your Finito's Finito's. You wouldn't put Camaro rims on your Corvette would you?
Rick -
Frame: X-Metal
Lens: Black Iridium
This was the only available color combination when Oakley originally launched the Juliet back in 1998. For this reason alone it receives full marks. This is the Granddaddy of all Juliets and deserves respect. There may be a slough of flashier combos now, but this is an important piece to any formidable Juliet collection. Respect your elders.
Rick -
Frame: X-Metal
Lens: Gold Iridium
I don't know much about this combination's origins at all. It just appeared on Ebay one day and bemused us all. The Gold Iridium lens is a pleasant lens that is versatile and soothing to the eye. The X-Metal frame is the original frame and together they create a bit of a boring combination. They are rare and that always earns points with me.
Rick -
Frame: X-Metal
Lens: Ruby Iridium
I'm almost upset with the Ruby because of all the nonsense surrounding them as of late. I bought mine for retail back when it was first released and for that I am grateful. I can't imagine paying the outrageous prices these are currently going for. That said, it is a must for any serious collector. Beware of those claiming "first generation" - there are no generations. There are batch differences, just as there are with all Juliet lenses. First Generation is a marketing ploy by online dealers who want to create more excitement in an effort to extort higher prices (unfortunately it seems to work). It has been suggested that the first 5000 pieces have the added perk of being known as X-men Limited Editions, although I have seen no quantifiable evidence to substantiate this claim.

Good: I'd say this is 1 of the BEST looking Juliet!!! Its rarity is just like the so-called '1st Generation' Ruby/X-Metal Juliet. The lens look much more beautiful in real life than in pictures! They have purple AND green hues! My MOST favourite combo! An easy 5! (^o^)_b

Bad: NONE!! Apart from that it could look better if it comes with hammer earstems and very costly if u're trying to get one now!

Good: After the released of X-Men movie few years ago, this Juliet combo is still the most sought after Juliet pair. I can't deny its true beauty!! Only with the so-called '1st Generation Ruby' lens though. This is also my favourite pair along with Carbon Ichiro =)

Bad: Very costly if u're trying to get them now! Also the later Ruby (3rd Gen) lens does not look like Ruby lens at all!

they fit well on my round face giving it a longer slimmer look. the fire lense can not pass by unnoticed so wearing this one of these babies you will not pass by unnoticed.

The only problem would be the narrow lense that limits my view on some angles but that is noting compare to the other qualities of this amazing pair.4 on 5

Frame: Carbon/TiO2
Lens: VR50(Finito)/VR28 Black Iridium

The first time you try on a pair of Juliets you realise what all the fuss is about. Aside from the styling, the fit is secure and coverage excellent. So if you're unsure about which X-Metal frame would fit your face best, the Juliet is always a safe choice.

The Carbon frame is quite subtle and I've found it to feel lighter than other variants and a perfect compliment to the VR50(Finito) lenses. On the other extreme, TiO2 looks very sporty and again works well with the VR28 lens. I have no problem wearing these frames for prolonged periods, though some might find the weight to be a limiting factor. Also it's always a good idea to experiment with the interchangeable nose bombs and temple shocks to find the fit that's just right for you.

This color combinations is one of the classics. The x-metal frame looks good as always and with a dark lens like the black iridium makes it look even better. But I like all Juliets so what can I say. Eye coverage again is awesome. Must have for any collector.

Frame: Polished
Lens: Blue Iridium

My absolute favorite Oakley product. The ability to customize the fit and look of these glasses is spectacular. Every pair of sunglasses I've put on touch my right eyebrow but the temple pads of varying thicknesses allows me to customize the fit to work on my head. I also have a pair of Plasma/Emerald Juliets which I love but the Polished/Blue Iridium is a beautiful combination. I have been looking for a lens for more medium light where I would not have to sacrifice color neutrality and the Blue Iridium works well. The polished frame with the hammer arms make the fit snug but not too tight. These glasses are heavy but ft on the face very lightly when customized. Exceptionally well made and beautiful to boot.

What can be said about the Juliets that hasn't already been said.

Lens: Ruby (initial batch) and black iridium

I love my Juliets, they're almost ideal shaped for my face, I think pennys suit me better but the juliets are nice and streamlined without the flared orbital bit near the nose of the pennys. My Rubys definitely get the vote over my black iridiums, I find the unobtainium nosebombs really comfortable but the next step is to track down the red set like the ducatti.

This custom combo is just awesome! The stealthy look from the X-metal and the always present green from the G26 is a perfect combination.

Frame: X-metal
Lens: 2006 Ruby Iridium

This is quite a popular pair. Quite radical in design. One plus point is you can customize the fit with different numbered T-shoxs and different sized nosebombs to suit different face shapes. Flex couplers will get loose over time.

Ruby Iridium lenses are easily one of the most versatile lenses that can be used in almost every light condition. You'll have to squint a little under terribly bright conditions. But that isn't a very serious matter...

The Emerald slate iridium are my favorite lens... Awsome in any condition... forget what everyone says "its great for low or medium light" in a first look when you wear it it really looks too light but in 15 minutes wearing it or less... You just can't take them out the condition of light that the slate feature provides you is just perfect... Of course if you live in a place that have snow or beach it isnt the best option but.. even like that when I got to the beach its my first option with the other ichiro with OO Blue Iridium (other lens that I love)...

Just like any other Juliets out there, all I can say is NICE! I love the X-Metal frame, with the Black Iridium lenses you can wear it with casual and semi-formal attire.

In my opinion, there has never been a more amazing pair of glasses created. The Juliets are insanity, I can't even describe the level that these took the sunglass industry to, thanks of course to the Romeo setting off the X-metal line, both insane but the Juliet is just too much to handle. I threw some Rubys in my plasma frames and it looks awesome, a bit pricey but worth every cent and more.

Frame: carbon
Lens: black iridium polarized
OK This website needs another Juliet review like I need another hole in my head, but I just want to really quantify as best I can why I own these and will always measure every other pair of shades against these.

First off I want to talk about the importance I assign to having a frame that is nearly indestructable. I think more than anything a good Oakley fanatic cares for his sunnies like one would care for fine jewelry. The fact that X-metal frames are nearly imprevious to damage is definately a buying point, but ironically one who would spend that much money on a pair of shades really has no intention of putting these in a situation where they would be subject to damage.

This is an interesting paradox. On the one hand you're buying a frame that is strong and durable. On the other hand you care for it as if it is delicate as gold foil. Here is my theory on that. In my opinion few things transcend what I would consider your "day to day" product. One that the individual takes pride in owning. Not as a status symbol, not as a means of keeping up with the Jones, but as something intrisically special in its own right. The product becomes more than what it is functionally designed to be.

Like all of Oakley's products the clarity of the lenses is unsurpassed. As a matter of fact the polarized lenses give one the feeling of "Gosh I can actually see better, clearer, and with better definition with these than with the naked eye" This leads to an almost obsessive need to keep these clean and oil free. So much so that when you do get a smudge it's like having a rock in your shoe, you just have to get rid of it! The only beef I have with this and every other O lense is that they do scratch much easier than I care for.

Getting a scratch on these lenses is heart-breaking. I'm not saying that getting a scratch is unavoidable, I'm saying even the uttmost care does not insure a perfect lense. Yes they are better than most as far as impact resistance is concerned and when it comes down to it that is definately more important than scratch resistance. At any rate indestructable frames do not mean indestructable lenses.

On to style. Yes they are distinct. They stand apart from others, but they are not outlandish. They are edgy, but classic. The earstems just make you think "I wonder how they came up with this". First of all who makes a titanium alloy frame, second these things literally have a suspension system that allows the frame not only a comfortable yet firm fit, but adjusts itself appropriately to your face while maintaining its rigid form. Unbelievably clever. Any way this is my official review of the Juliets. I really doubt that this will change anyone's mind as to why one would want these, but for me they are essential.

Frame: Ti02

Well, not much to say about this that hasn't been said. Just simply amazing, and this is probably my favorite colorway. I put my rubies in but felt bad because the original colors are so cool so the VR28 stays.

Frame:Plasma (1st Gen)
Lens:VR50 Black (Finito)

A very simple looking pair but i dont mean dull. it is a smart subtle pairing of the 1st gen plasma which is basically a light goldy colour. the pale brown of the Finito lens goes very well. i finished the look with rootbeer unobtanium.

I LOVE THESE. Contrary to my review on my x-metal ruby's these fit perfectly and sit snug on my face.(I don't know why but this frame seems to fit better...no explanation) The contrast between the DEEP RUBY lens and the dark CARBON frame compliment each other. Excellent eye coverage. Comes with 2 sizes of templeshox and nose pieces you can set them up to fit you perfectly. I have added red unob's to top them off.
These will sit perched upon my face when they bury me.

Frame: Carbon
Lens: Polarized Black Iridium

I bought these Jan. 1, 2007. New year, new shades. One thing I didn't like about these is that they cost as much as a Xbox 360! The nosebombs absorb sweat very well. I really wish they put the spring hinges on the Juliets like they did for the Pennys. When you put them on, it scrapes against your temples which hella hurts and is gay. Another problem with the Juliets is that they don't say Oakley on them or have the O ellipse symbols on the side like the Splice which is why I suggest they splice (no pun intended) the Juliet with the Splice to make it look cooler and look more Oakley. They should also give you a choice to buy differant color earsocks, temple shocks, and nosebombs. They sell brown and black. They should sell blue, red, and other colors etc...

Almost all about these glasses has already been said but why Oakley used these pesky T6 screws on glasses of this quality I simply can't understand. Before you know it they are stripped (mine were straight out of the factory) and you are well and truly f***** Still it's trivial so 5 stars to the best eyewear ever made
TERRORISM -
Frame: Carbon
Lens: Black Iridium

The Juliets are perhaps the most popular, sought-after, and admired of all Oakley shades ever made - in addition to being some of the most durable sunglasses ever made. With this particular frame, however, I have noticed problems: the lens in the left orbital (as you're wearing the glasses) always seems to be loose. This is an issue that has plagued Oakley from the initial release of the Carbon frame for the Juliets, and the issue persists still today (years later). These glasses would have received a 5-star rating, but due to the lack of quality from the lenses being loose (and I have noticed this in EVERY pair of Carbon frame Juliets at retail, not just the several pairs that I personally own), I can only give this pair a 3-star rating... For a $300 retail tag, these sunglasses should be flawless.

I got this very hot baby when my dad went to America in 1998. He's not a big fan of Oakley before.
He just went to the product launching at one of the O-Store and he was very anxious to buy this one.
Then he bought it coz he really loved it, and so do I..

The reason he bought it are because the model's so fantastic, the indestructible material, and most important is it's the 1st Juliet combo ever made..

We still have it in excellent condition for both the lens and the frame. That's the reason I gave these full 5 skulls besides how good I feel while I wear those because it hug my face really tight but still comfortable.
Shujat -
Frame: Polished
Lens: Fire Iridium Polarized

These glasses are just AMAZING.

Firstly, the workmanship and the way they fit around your head is second to none.

The second point I want to make is that if you're going to get a pair of Juliets I really don't see the point in going for Black/Ice/Emerald or any of the darker lens. Its a personal preferance but I brought these because I think they felt and looked superb on my face. I tried on a few pairs and although they all look good, the reason you get these is to turn heads and what better way to do that than a fire iridium lens and polished frame.

I would suggest trying them on at a store first if you're going to buy them online. I went with a couple of friends and while the Juliets look good on me, one of the guys I was with looked like a retarded bug with them on. His face is rounder and more plump. I think they fit better if you have a straigher, more defined face.

The bottom line, these shades are definately worth the money. If they look good on you and you've got the cash, buy them. The quality feels(and is) solid. The extra weight and polished metal makes them feel far superior to any other oakley frame out there (the plastic frames seem cheap and pale in comparison).

The Polished finish is great on the Juliet. It makes is stand out in the crowd. Not many people would be interested in a polished frame pair of sunglasses that is as eyecathing as the Juliet. But I don't let that stop me!

The polished finish is excellent, no scuffs or anything, but I am fearfull that these might come up. Let's just hope not. The Blue Iridium brings a nice contrast to the shiny frame which makes this pai look really special. Even when you aren't in to Oakley's or know anything about them, looking at a pair of Polished - Blue Iridium Juliets make you realise that it something very special and simply a thing of beauty.

Frame: X-Metal
Lens: Ruby Iridium

Simply amazing and absolutely worth every penny. I had never planned on getting pair of Juliets, but after coming across these custom X-Metal/Ruby with red Unobtainium beauties for a very reasonable price on eBay that was just too good to pass up, I just couldn't say no. They both look and fit great, although the only problem I have with them is that one of the lenses wiggles around a little bit on contact. Regardless of that, they still get the top rating because the good things about them heavily outweigh the one bad thing. A few members have suggested different ways to remedy this apparently common problem, but I might just leave well enough alone for the time being. Nonetheless, these are my new favorites and it would take something pretty spectacular to even come close to replacing them at the top of my list.

I'm afraid that I "discovered" the Juliet a bit late. I bought my first pair in 2010. Originally, I thought of these as female-specific frame, due to the Romeo being fairly new at the time. I guess the name just threw me off. They very much remind me of my A-Wire Thick that I bought in 1999. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if they used the same lens. I have yet to see a version or colorway that hasn't been awesome, and that has made me regret missing some of the rarer styles.

Frame: X-Metal/Plasma
Lens: Ruby Iridium
When I got my first pair of these fine frames, it was a dream come true (as I had been wanting these since the very first X-Men movie). I realized as soon as I put them on that I bought an amazing piece of art.
First off, the fit right off the bat turned out pretty sweet. The flex-couplers made the frame feel quite comfortable and not so irritating. Also, having the rubber on both the nosepads and earsocks definitely helped out.
Probably one of the best thing to come out of it, however, was the fact that I now have an obsession with the Ruby Iridium Lenses. I'm currently working on having all my pairs with them, but for the most part, I am quite happy with Oakley's choice in combining them with the X-metal frame.
Hopefully, I get my other frames back from the shop so I can have Trish's combination from Devil May Cry (as she wears the Juliet in the series). -Shadic Rexx

Frame: 24K
Lens: Titanium Iridium Polarized

As a farewell to perhaps Oakley's biggest and most successful high-end pair of shades, the 24K Juliet was briefly launched with 750 sequentially serial-numbered pairs. Selling out almost instantly, they became a classic.

At first I was a bit disappointed that they didn't come equipped with 24K Polarized lenses, but after a while I admired the Titanium Polarized lenses... almost as much. Oakley still should have released this pair with 24K Polarized lenses, but overall they deserve the full five-skull rating.

It will be interesting to see whether or not Oakley can release a pair of shades that command the same amount of respect as the Juliet in the future.



ROMEO -
Frame: All
Lens: All
The Juliet has become the mainstay and sits in the middle of the X-Metal line-up. Smaller than the Romeo, Mars, and XX. Larger than the Penny.
It doesnt have the design flaw of the Romeo in regards to lens cracking.
Bear in mind that it doesnt have a spring hinge like the Penny does. The Juliet has fangs that dig in your head and requires technique when putting them on and taking them off. The first generation plasma frame is prone to discoloration, giving it a weathered almost rusted look to it. However, the fire lens that matches the first gen plasma frame is really deep!

There are no moments when a pair of Juliets are wrong. Just choose the right frame and lens!

High end box lined with foam to protect your glasses. They would be even better protected though if Oakley included a case with its X-metals (wink, wink, nudge, nudge). Design is very nice with the use of a large X-metal coin instead of just putting a picture on the box. It can be a bit tricky to get the coin out without ripping the box so be careful! For the ultimate go for the early ones with the label that have a drawing of the juliet on it.

What can you really say about a box? I didn't save my boxes early on and eventhough I don't regret it, it would have been nice to have kept them all. The Juliet box remains the same since its launch in 1998, but the box label has changed. Earlier labels had pictures of the color combination.

Stylish box for a quality pair of shades.
TERRORISM -
Marketing experts have been quoted as stating, "you don't sell the steak, you sell the sizzle". Oakley marketing went all-out on this premise when designing the Juliet box. Aesthetically, the box is amazing, with equidistant holes punched through the outer sleeve. The window displaying the included X-Metal coin is even more impressive, and the inclusion of a cut-out foam insert to protect your investment (the X-Metals) represents the "icing on the cake". An oustanding achievement for an outstanding pair of sunglasses, the most appropriate phrase to describe this box would be "OUT OF THIS WORLD."

Juliet boxes are the coolest boxes ever... they have a dirt look but at the sametime they look sofisticated too... And if you have any oakley that is signatured... the OAKLEY logo with the words "Limited Edition" makes all the difference :)

BullyVW -
I never thought I would review a box. Considering the price and mystique that surround these shades, the box better be damn nice. In this case, it is a suitable box for such a pair. The "dual" liner design, including the all too famous coin, make it very unique. The interior of the box works out well for the shape of the sunglasses...keeping them snug at all times.
Bruin1 -
A nice sharp looking box, it could use some updating, though.

That was a good box, with the holes and the coin. Although for something like an X-Metal expectations are in the sky. The foaming on the inside offers perfect protection. All in all a very decent box.
Rick -
Two sizes to choose from. It's a good idea to change them up as they can get gross and gooey if you leave them on a pair that gets a lot of use. I think the heat from the face helps break down the oils in the pads and it can get gross after a while. Pays to stock up. There should be red ones, I agree with Oogie.
o-xide -
It be nice it the Asian fit is available. But the fact that it comes in colors makes it great.
oogie -
Great colorway options. But there is a striking color missing to choose from: red. With blue and green available, there is no reason we all can't get red nosepads to add to our ruby/fire/ducati juliets!!!
jumpman73 -
Very nice thing to have to customize and change things up a bit.
Rick -
Great idea to replace these if you tend to put a lot of wear on your Juliets. Earsocks can be a pain to replace, but the spit and twist method is tried and true. Helps reduce calluses. Please avoid chucking a colored set on pairs that might look better with a neutral black. I made the mistake early on of slapping red on everything, and in the end, the original look is usually the classiest.
oogie -
Great options to get red, blue and green as well as the basic black or rootbeer. Kind of a funny thing - since it strikes me that the custom rubber kits really make the Juliets look better when they are sitting in display, but don't really make a noticeable statement when worn. It's too hard for anyone to really see and notice the earsocks, tshox and nosepieces.

If you ask customer service nicely, you can get the ducati red unobtainium. Doesn't come neatly like the consumer kits above, but all the pieces can be ordered separately. $3 for both nose bombs, $3 for both temple shocks, and $3 each for the ear socks. Good luck getting the Ichiro blue and green. They were limited runs, so the warrenty stock wasn't really made.

if you're planning on keeping your glasses for a while, grab as much as you can. I wear mine everyday -- they're my prescription glasses -- and after a couple of months of the rubber absorbing sweat and moisture, they become lose, greasy, and they expand.
Usually only comes in black and root beer, but if you have connections... the Ducati red and the Ichiro blues are possible to get. Very possible.

Definitely a must have if you've been buying second hand. The blue color is outstanding. They make an old pair of Juliet new very much instantly.

Nice to have the option when the old wears down. Hard to get on unless you use a bit of soap. Nice and basic.

Color: Red (Ducati), Black

Another item for customizing the Juliets. Makes for even more color combos when changing out lenses. Hard to find the replacement red like Dann has mentioned.

Agree with Rick that Juliet replacement lenses should mostly be used to replace scratched lenses. I, too, found that having some spare Juliet lenses to make customs ended up being frustrating. The Juliet is just too perfect to not have a frame for every lens - and a lens for every frame.

Color: General
I used to have a Juliet lens stash, but I got tired of swapping them out since it was putting undo stress and wear on the frames. It was then that I decided to sell off my extras and complete the Juliet line. Swapping Juliet lenses is not an especially hard task, but you have to be careful not to strip your T6 screws and you need to watch out for the washers. They are easy to lose.

Color: Ruby Iridium

Very nice upgrade and a medium difficulty of installing, I didn't realize that the juliets are bent in place and held with a screw, as soon as you remove one of those screws, depending on your pair, they will fling apart and it is hard to bend that metal and re-screw them together with two hands

Look sharp and really match the ruby lenses in appearance and much cheaper. Oakley has discontinued the ruby lenses also for the X-Metal series. Any of the polarized lenses are worth purchasing due to the UV ray blockage top rating.

Excellent distortion free optics, pleasing to see through. They look really good on the outside as well. I thought they only stand out on a plasma or polished frame but I recently swapped these lenses into an X metal frame and they appear just as pleasing. They are great for reducing glare and my day out at sea will definitely be ruined without these lenses.

Color: Ruby (Reddish Purple Version)
To this day, this is still one of my greatest regrets for not taking care of them when I got them. They all scratched up and I've since given them away. The only consolation I get is that this is not an extraorinary lens to see through. I'm more pleased with the grey base of the black and ice lenses. That said,in terms of physical aesthetics, I think nothing beats the Ruby/ X metal color scheme.

I thought Oakley would continue making them but regrettably they're not. The newer Ruby should never be called that since it looks like fire. If they are selling the deep red rubies for under $100, I would get them but anything above that is not money well spent in my honest opinion. I'm mixed on the rating, 5 if they sell for under $100 and 4 for anything above $100.

Color: Ruby Iridium

They look like fire polarized in low lighting but they turn deep red in sunlight, also they have the best clarity out of the lenses I have (almost like looking through clear lenses) but with this comes that they are the not suitable for REALLY bright lighting conditions. I'd recommend them to people who love to wear their shades in low lighting conditions.
TERRORISM -
Whether you feel like changing colors chameleon-style or just need to refurbish some scratched eyewear for your Juliets, these replacement lenses are the way to go. Now available in a multitude of new colors such as VR28 Black Polarized and Gold Iridium Polarized, there are more choices than ever. As aforementioned, however, take special care to avoid stripping your T6 screws or losing your gaskets when replacing lenses.

Color: Ruby Iridium

Love this lens. Great color though some lenses may bias towards Fire and some may look like +Red. I spent 20 minutes choosing between lenses. BLue tint is great for most of the day. Twilight conditions don't suit the tint very well.

The Hydro/Oleo phobic nature of the lens is nice to have. they no longer pick up the oil from your hair when you push them up on your head.

Great for 'chameleonizing' your Juliets. It's great that the Vault and Oakley have many color options still. Shows the longevity and classic-ness of the frame. Replacement T6 screws are a must if you change out frequently and T6 driver bits shouldn't be to hard to find at your local hardware store.

Frame: Crystal Red
Lens: + Red Iridium

After an extremely annoying amount of time spent trying to locate these, I have to say these glasses are fantastic. They are very similar to Frogskins and anyone who likes those will love the Jupiters. They feel more solid than the Frogskins and have a tighter fit. They also seem to wrap around a bit more. My only complaint is that the front of my box says +Red Iridium but the label on the back says Ruby Iridium and I had to pay extra for the Ruby.

Frame: Polished White
Lens: 24K gold

This style have opened a whole new chapter for my Oakley collecting. It truly is an updated Frogskin with just enough wrap to give great coverage & still utilize Oakley's XYZ optics. There is also alot of room for some killer custom options with the colors given, my personal fav being matte black w/24K lenses/icons/hinge point. The frames are standard Omatter and have the solid yet flexible feel you expect from any other Omatter frame, the LX (accetate frame) is too tight for me to wear all day but these are hella comfortable.

Frame: Crystal Red
Lens: +Red

I would first have to echo all my positive comments and praise from my review about the LX. As suspected, I also remove most qualms I had being most were with the stiffness and rigidity of the acetate frame and large hinge structure. (See: http://www.o-review.com/glassesmodels.asp?ID=2862) These glasses are in turn the new classic. The contours of the 1980s and the edge of the 2000s. Beloved classic colorways and proven modern combos. A great update for those looking for a modern Frogskin.

Frame: Polished Clear
Lens: Violet Iridium
I have been hesitant to purchase this retro-inspired pair as well as the re-released Frogskins. Some people can pull the look off, while I can't. But, there is good news if you are like me. The Polished Clear frame on the Jupiter does not look nearly as obvious as the solid colors. I recommend this particular pair to anyone who is anxious but wants to add a bit of spark to their collection. They are much lighter than the LX and they fit great. I will wear these until someone makes a "Look at that old man in the young kid glasses Mom!" comment.

I bought this style because it looks like the Ray Ban Wayfarer but only cooler:) It has a nice fit, better than my Crosshair. My complaint is that when you close the temples, the edges touch the lenses.

Frame: Polished Clear
Lens: Violet Iridium

When I first saw this fram I had to have it. The design and shape is so classic but with just enough mad science thrown in that it somehow begs for crazy color combinations. They fit my medium large head quite well and as is expected with o-matter they are incredibly lightweight and flexible enough to maintain just the right amount of pressure to stay on without being uncomfortable. This frame would be an easy five if it came in polarized. Come on Oakley bring it on. We buy your glasses for style and performance. Why must we choose?

Definately a contrast to my Polished Rootbeer FlakJackets, looks like I should be sitting on the beach enjoying the sand and surf, if only in my mind. Good coverage only in direct light, you tend to get a reflection of the inside white of the frame.
Dwcfastrice -
Frame: Clear
Lens: Violet

This is a great looking pair of frames. An updated take on the classic "Frogskin" look, these give you that "I'm cool in a classiclt timeless way" look. Construction is "sturdier" than the old Frogskin, but I have to wonder how it would hold up as well, since the Jupiter doesn't flex as much.

Very cool Violet iridium lens coating is a real head turner. This looks great sitting on display. The clear frame has a tendency to chanel light around the frame so it's not so great for wearing in sunny conditions. How ironic.

Just an update,well the tips of the temples have finally scratched the lenses, both sides..Its not noticeable when I wear them since they are nearly at the lower edges of the lens,but still, I mean come on! Oakley shades are expensive! My advice to all of you who buy this model, I suggest you put a small cloth in the inside part so that the tips just touch the cloth and never the lens.

Frame: Polished Clear
Lens: Violet Iridium

While these shades may not have the vintage allure as the Frogskins, they are definitely an improvement on the design. The large screw metal hinges are very smooth and tight, and the frame feels very solid in your hands. They simply feel sturdier than the frogskins. The frame also is more curved along the orbitals, giving the lenses more coverage than the frogskins. The clear/violet combo is an awesome reference to the old Frogskins of the same colors, and the shades always catch glances and questions. Sick shades.

First time I saw them, they were the sickest pair of Oakley I've seen. The violet iridium caught my eyes and I just gotta have it. Bought it and I am loving it. Very comfortable and you will barely know it's on your face. The frame/lenses combo is a plus for me.

Frame: Foose Signature Matte Black/Rust
Lens: Bronze

I have already reviewed the Jupiter and Jupiter LX, so this one will lean more towards the upsides and downsides of one particular signature pair. The first and really only biggest complaint one would have here is the price, $170 for $100 frame with no iridium lens and some extra paint. The question you need to ask yourself though is "is it worth it?" For me, I believe it was. Oakley rarely ever pairs black and bronze which is a fav combo for me. And, the addition of the rust icon and brushed silver band with the interior rust paint job add a subtle level of class to this pair instead of the standard understated black/gunmetal/silver icon/band that would be used. One drawback on the interior rust paint job however is that is is only on the stems and no the interior of the orbitals. I still do agree the price is high, but the glasses are and excellent combo to standout from the other standard releases without going as crazy as some of the artwork frames.

Frame: Stanley Donwood

Fits a little to tight to my face so it causes my eyelashes to touch the inside the lenses. And not a big fan of the throw back look either. However, the 24k with the Matte black frame looks SWEET, and with the price tag around 110 its not so bad.

Frame: Silver
Lens: Ice Iridium
Saw these for the first time at Sunglass hut the other day. I had to check them out. First impressions: Sitting on the display these are definitely attention grabbing. The carbon fiber really pops and draws you to them. Though it has never been my favorite material for sunglasses the aluminum actually looks well done and I'm reasonably convinced that they will hold up to abuse. The odd thing about these is the way that the earstems and aluminum section don't quite touch. There is a gap of maybe 2 mm in-between which is probably necessary given the stiff nature of carbon fiber. This allows the frame to flex on your face via a pair of twin shocks made of titanium. The nose has a hard plastic (or possibly o-matter) bomb that is matte finished so as to minimize sliding on your face.

As you can see this seems to be the new MO for higher end Oakleys these days, think C-6 without the exorbitant and quite frankly undeserving price. The Lites do much of the same without the unjustifiably high price point, but also with a lot less flare.

Fit- The frames are similar to the Jupiter fit, which for me is unfortunate as the jupiters fit is not great for me touching my face along the brow line, cheek and not sitting properly on my nose unless I slide them down a bit in which case they are precariously coupled to my face. The Lites are similar, but seem to do better due to the tighter fit.

Overall I have mixed feelings about this new multiple material look. On the one hand the geek in me says "carbon fiber, aluminum, AND titanium all with Oakley optics???? Will you be My new girlfriend?" but the chic in me thinks "Really, another derivative frogskin frame? Haven't these been done enough? These are very very busy looking shades and that makes them look sort of cheap" Part of the latter feelings are because Oakley over the years has done no favors for themselves by releasing frames with 'true carbon fiber' which is code for 'not real carbon fiber in the least bit'. So ironically when I look at carbon fiber frames my brain automatically says FAKE!

Any way fit is not going to work for a lot of people, style is a little tired, but I have to commend Oakley for trying to find the next it thing after the discontinuation of x-metal. While simultaneously feeling like this is a not so minor step down from x-metal.

Frame: Matte black, Polished Aluminum
Lens: Black Iridium Polarized, Ice iridium Polarized
Very well made glasses. The design and craftmanship and the materials are all top notch. Even on the black framf you can clearly see that it is real carbon fiber. The Titanium twin beta shock hinge works great and looks strong. My only gripe with these glasses is that they are too small. Not so much in the proportions but more-so the width. These things squeeze me so tight and i know they will never strech.
kingphilbert -
Frame: Brick Red
Lens: Grey

I was hesitant... Hesitant because of the Acetate frame. Hesitant because all the previous frames released using this material have scored lower marks in my book than o-matter frames. Particularly in the women's line, but then again, I am not out there wearing them so my opinions only lie in trying them on and handling the frames for others. That, and in the performance of this material in non-Oakley brands. Needless to say based on my rating all my issues were put to rest when I came face to face with the Jupiter LX.

From the early list of colorways matching classic Frogskins to finally seeing a few "sneak peak" images to not finding them at Hollywood O the week of release I couldn't wait to get my hands on what we knew would turn out be the modern Frogskin. Years and years of re-envisioning, turning one style into a family of styles and now full circle. The Jupiter LX is a streamlined and contemporary update to a style that everyone loved at one point in their life. I never imagined I'd wear a Frogskin again let alone anything modeled after it, but this past year's barrage of rereleases left me wanting more and more is now at hand.

The frame follows the contours of the original Frogskin using what is a near identical nose bridge and lens shape while edging the frame's orbitals off with an angled square cut against the round lens leading up to a wider wayfarer styled stem that throws this frame past the 80s back to the 50s and 60s. The hinge is accented with a large metal band that is becoming a common design element in quite a few O styles of late. This doubles as the stem attached half of the hinge mechanism with the first half anchored into the orbitals. Not to puss out with a simple 2/3 small screw hinge Oakley has gone large with a 4/3 fit long screw hinge that adds a well built, solid feel to what tends to be the weak point in similar styles. Lastly these are now topped off with the Square O to show where the evolved style now resides in Oakley hierarchy.

For the Jupiter LX, the style comes off looking larger, but actually feels a bit smaller than the Frogskin. In part, I believe this is due to the acetate frame materials stiffness and earstems that angle slightly inward when open. The frame itself flexes and fits very well and acetate can take some heat to widen it up if larger headed O-Reviewers were looking to get into a pair.

I def recommend this to all who missed the modern Frogskin or simply passed over the modern Frogskins.

These are super glasses. I picked up a pair yesterday, they feel great, love the stiff metal hinges and the contoured ear stems. I do wish they had black iridium lenses, but the grey is classic. I am a fan of the OG Frogskins and I think these will be a nice complement to my collection.

Frame: Polished Black
Lens: +Red Iridium

I first wanted to check out the Jupiter LX because I had a pair of the regular Jupiters, I liked them, and I liked the feel of the Ray Ban Wayfarers, just not the style. The original colorways struck me as boring, but as soon as the Shaun White colorway was released, I knew I had to get them. I absolutely love these shades. The look is a lot like the Frogskins, but with a modern Oakley twist. The +Red Iridium used on these is true to the standard (unlike the "+red" used on the Shaun White Frogskins) and the pattern on the inside is awesome, its a lot more subtle when the sunglasses are actually on your head.

These sunglasses may LOOK very oakley, but they feel like no other Oakleys I have ever worn. The Acetate frame and metal hinges make these sunglasses MUCH heavier than regular o-matter frames, as well as quite a bit stiffer. They also feel extremely durable - I can tell that these will last years and years. The two stripes on the icons are a cool touch as well. I just wish there were a few more colorways for these sunglasses, especially more in keeping with the original Frogskins (yellow/violet!!!!!!!)

If you think that Frogskins are too on your head or that they aren't edgy enough, these are the sunglasses for you.

Frame: Shuan White- POlished Black
Lens: +Red


very Rarely do glasses reach out and grab me when I try them on. More out of a curiosity than anything, I tried these on at the local vault store on Sunday, and was back to buy them on Monday. I was immediately struck by the cleaner, more classic (think original Wayfarers) lines when compared to the original Frogskins. The fit is tighter than the original and the finish is nicer. There is more heft to these frames and feel less like a "Cracker Jack" prize than the Frogskins. The Frogskins looked silly on me, these looked normal, I dare even say, good, on me.

The fit of the glasses is much tighter and there is better coverage, although not as good as other models. So, there's still some peripheral that is not covered, but there is a lot less peripheral exposed than which is exposed with the Frogskin.

My only complate is the +Red of my lenses are dark blue almost all pruple with NO red hue at all. I guess it's the batch.

We'll see how these work out in the long term and I'll write something again. Oakley did a great job with updating a classic style.

Frame: Polished Black
Lens: Gray Polarized

The Jupiter LX is a really solid pair of sunglasses with a lot of style. Like others, I like these because they have a retro look with a little bit of modern flare that sets you apart from every other hipster out there wearing the typical Ray-Ban wayfarers. Overall, I'm a fan of the acetate frames. Even though they are a bit on the heavy side, they aren't uncomfortable at all and don't really leave too much of a red mark on your nose like some heavy frames can. What I really like about the acetate frame and strong hinges is that it feels bomb-proof...definitely a durable frame that will last a long time (if you think the regular Jupiter feels flimsy, then this is the frame for you). It took me a while to get used to these both in terms of how they look on me (I'm used to the wrap-around styles, but wanted something more timeless and stylish) and the peripheral vision (I'm also used to rimless frames like the Flak Jacket). Finally, the lenses are awesome as always; I love Oakley's grey polarized lenses. I just wish these had an Iridium coating so your eyes were more hidden (not a huge deal though since Iridium would have taken away from the clean, classic look that I think Oakley was going for with these shades). One final note: the Polarized models come with a really nice faux-leather hard vault case...really nice bonus! Overall these are great shades, I highly recommend them to anyone wanting the classic Wayfarer or Frogskin look with a bit more edge.

These are excellent! I've recently gotten into the retro styled glasses, as they're relatively cheap and do the job. This was my 12th pair of shades to date, and I love them! They fit my Asian face really really well, which is quite surprising to me. The wrap is just enough, and the acetate arms make it really easy to get the perfect fit around my head. These are extremely cheap right now, so I suggest you grab some before they're gone!

Awesome glasses. These glasses took two month to get here. They are much more grey than they look on the website, from the frame color to the lenses. The wood grain is awesome and the texture is not like any other Oakley frame I've felt. The Tungsten chrome accents look great and the Unobtainium on the ends of the arm feel nice. They are very comfortable too. I have a bigger head (7-5/8") and these are not tight at all. Very excited to own these so early in the distribution.

Honed/Gunmetal(steel bracelet)

This watch was a revelation for me. Being a guy with smaller wrists and not a big fan of oversized watches. Virtually all Oakleys Men's watches I found to be too big and I had all but given up until I picked up a Jury. I have to say I'm thoroughly impressed. It's hard to fault this watch.. brilliant design, nice solid contraction and well weighted(like a high quality timepiece should be) it's an absolute pleasure to wear daily. The steel bracelet, once sized properly is surprisingly comfortable and looks killer. The absence of a date window is probably the only shortfall, if any.

Though it's often classified as a Woman's model, I think it's design attributes make it more than suitable for guys as well. If you do find yourself in the same position I was(unable to find an Oakley watch that fits just right) I highly recommend you give the Jury a go.

Like the D.5 and Crush 2.5, the Jury offers up the same look on a shrunken scale for women or the small wristed among us. But I would say, actually, that the leather band options really open up the possibilities. Since the leather band is so substantial, I think just about anyone could pull off the look.

This is a very different square-o frame. I like the style of them a lot and the overall look is very unique, but the one thing I can not get over is how heavy these things are.

Another great pair of glasses! Very solid frame for average size faces (slightly bigger than my Twitches, but smaller than my Eyepatch or Sideways). Frame is incredibly lightweight and the way the stems expand to fit the side of your head is cool. With unobtanium nose piece and on the stems, they do a great job of staying on your face. Glasses have a very "indestructible" feel to them -very solid. The matte black & black iridium is a great combination. I have only had them for a few days but they are very comfortable and I don't find myself having to "reset" them after wearing them for a while. Only drawback is the price, but definitely a nice addition to the collection. Check these out.

Frame: Matte Black
Lens: OO Black Polarized

Lots of mixed feeling came pouring in on these in the first week of their release. Some in regards to the fit, others for or against the attempt of merging frame materials, and some to the bland any frame styling compared to more over the top Oakleys of the past. One of the best comments in regards to fit though came down to it either fits you or it doesn't, and in that case I agree. I am also past arguing about what it does or doesn't fit like because it's really going to depend on your head and face shape.

Personally they fit me well. It's a medium sized offering in the lifestyle line that tends to be comprised of somewhat oversized styles for my taste. The grip of the stems and width of the frame are fantastic. The nose however is on the wider side and requires them to sit higher up and closer to my face. I don't experience the sensation of my eyelashes hitting the lens, but the tops do get greasy from my brow. It makes me wish these were like most other higher end metal Oakleys with the interchangeable nosepieces for thick or thin noses. The screwed in o-matter nosepiece that these do have to me is the weakest element of the whole design. Even if that were interchangeable for size it would be an improvement.

As for the merging or O-Matter and Aluminum, I think it was well executed. Much smoother and less rigid that that of the Hatchet with the tiny spring hinge. I do still have my doubts as to whether the thin O-Matter temple that creates a spring hinge effect here will give out, but I guess we need to trust that Oakley ran this through the standard battery of QC tests. Otherwise its wait and see. It is well anchored to the Aluminum stem so no worries about the pieces separating otherwise. Thicker near the hinge and screw point, just thinner where it flexes.

All in all I am happy with the style, the simplicity of the styling as it's a lifestyle piece, and the merging of the materials. I just hope the Jury does well and isn't easily abandoned as previous Aluminum styles were because there is room for improvement and I would love to see this evolve.

I am very happy with these, they have a nice, updated classic look...not crazy but absolutely Oakley. They are a bit heavier than you would guess, however, I liked the feeling, they are very comfortable. I would like to see Oakley keep these around and maybe expand the line.

The frame has weight to it which is what I really like. The first pair I got was damaged because the head of a screw that connects the o-matter arm to the aluminum arm broke off so the frame was totally damaged.

I went back to SH and exchanged them for another one of the same color.

I would say the choice of screws used in this particular style is prone to break easily since the o-matter arms flexes and puts stress on the screws.

I will be replacing the stainless steel screws with titanium screws. I will also be making a mould of the o-matter arms with carbon fiber ones including the o-matter housings that are connected to the frame.

Frame: Distressed Silver
Lens: Ice

Oakley recently introduced a new line of eyewear with a unique frame style: Jury. While the architecture of this pair incorporates metal and acrylic as well as newly-designed spring hinges, it falls a bit short.

Overall fit of this model is adequate, providing good coverage with minimal light leakage. Likewise, the spring hinges provide just enough flexibility to allow slight outward movement for "thicker" craniums. Some consumers, however, may not appreciate the "square" fit of this pair or the fact that the nosepiece - unlike any other ever incorporated by a previous Oakley sunglass - is comprised of "hard plastic". I cannot understand why Oakley didn't utilize something softer, such as unobtainium - especially considering the physical weight of the frames. This is the major fault with the glasses and could have easily been corrected.

A decent pair of shades overall, but with definite room for improvement.

The O matter hinges are a unique feature that have a springy elastic function to grip the cranium if the unobtanium wasn't already enough. you can feel the squeeze sometimes but its never really enough for me to really care even with my large face. The nose support is also different from usual but it has unobtanium and it fits with the large lenses. Some reason the ice iridium coating can come off when cleaning. I only used the microbag lens cleaner that came with and it took off a spots worth of ice, about 2 weeks after I bought them. be careful when cleaning but otherwise awesome.

In two days of use, my opinion is that are very heavy and hurts my ears, i thought the O-luminion was more lighter, but the lenses are very big and the vision is perfect, very clear.
