sunglasses for college
Nike tiempo cleats kids soccer cleats i always buy my sunglasses on the street (I see people sellling on 86th St on the east side, and the Union Square/NYU area, for starters). I figure, if I’m gonna lose them anyway, I mine as well only spend $5. And they usually have all the coolest styles. And for the cheap price, you could get more than one pair!

They had a kids soccer cleats very decent selection.Good gift!posted by mosch at 6:09 PM on August 8, 2005Are expensive sunglasses worth it from a functional perspective, or is it all fashion?posted by mecran01 at 8:51 PM on August 8, 2005hell yeah they’re worth it, but you have to spend your money on what matters:1. love the polarized lenses2. i have metal sunglasses. solid metal sunglasses. with good hinges that won’t break. I wear them just about every single day.3.That’s what i paid for. anyway, i got my sister convinced. but i think she thinks everything i do is cool.posted by alkupe at 10:57 PM on August 8, 2005Ditto what alkupe said. I wear contact lenses, and I have owned dozens of pairs of the cheap variety, and they all ended up being uncomfortable, flawed and just plain not very functional (scratch/bend easily). I finally broked down and bought a $185 pair of polarized Olivers two years ago, and I never go anywhere without them. They are comfortable and solid as a rock.

It is a really bad idea to buy the really cheap glasses because they can actually do more damage to your eyes than not wearing glasses at all. The goal of kids soccer cleats sunglasses (besides fashion) is to block UV light from entering your eyes. Cheap shades kids soccer cleats will dilate your pupils because of their dark tint but not block any UV light. A quality pair of glasses will attenuate a nike tiempo cleats large percentage of the UV light coming in, and will actually protect your eyes. Note that UV protection is not necessarily linked to how dark the lenses are either. But I cheaped out and didn’t get the polarizes lenses and it was a big mistake! You can’t see anything that’s in shadow at all. And I didn’t even know the worrying info that hindmost posted above. Splash out for the polarized lenses.

Are expensive sunglasses worth it from a functional perspective, or is it all fashion?
They’re functionally better. In addition to what alkupe said, the nonprescription glass is also of better quality, with no distortion that can cause eye strain.
I bought some real sungalsses a long nike tiempo cleats time ago, and never wore cheap ones again. I could care less about the fashion aspect, I just enjoy being able nike tiempo cleats to see clearly kids soccer cleats.
