Eyeshade

I was late to the game when it came to the Eyeshade 30th Anniversary editions.... so late that they were discontinued by the time i start hunting for them. They were launched in April 2014 but I was too caught up in work to take notice. The price was also a bit on the high side. But after a great experience with the new Jawbreakers.... i decided to go for them in June 2015, more than a year after their release.

Are they better than Jawbreakers?.... Of course not....Jawbreaker offers superior fit, structural integrity, ventilation and function. The Eyeshade, however, exudes an old school, 80s charm that is really quite fun. Love the old retro Oakley logo. The design actually offers a slightly larger field of vision compared to the jawbreaker.... its un-un-un-un-unbelievable!

Comes with the standard nosepad but its possible to use the radar/ radarlock asian nose pads for better nose bridge support. That is a plus side.

Went for the classic monochrome colorway, not a fan of the green and turquoise.
