For people with flater nose, try wearing a lite running cap and then your shades. Leave the end of your shades under the cap and it should prevent your shades from sliding down your nose. If not get something from rudy project by which you can adjust the nose bridge to suit you.

I use sunglasses from UNIQLO in Japan. Fantastic quality @ 1050YEN (~S$15), 100% UV + Anti Fog treated + Polarized. Unfortunately only avai in 3 tints.

Hi I was thinking of buying my first pair of sunglasses for running and I need some advice.

1. First of all is it cheaper to buy from http://oakley.com/ ? Anyone tried buying from that website before?

2. I got quite a small face. Is Oakley M-frame, Flak Jacket or Radar more suitable for me? What are the difference beside these 3 (eg. repels water)?

3. To get the lens polarized or not?

4. Which lens color is good? Those black ones or the bright color ones?

Thanks in advance. :)

Unfortunately, we can't buy from the US oakley website, as they don't do overseas shipping. Furthermore, the warranty is only valid in US only. Thirdly, you are just paying a bit more for warranty in singapore if you get the oakley here.

For example, Oakley website stated that a Flak Jacket Silver frame with Fire Iridium normal lens will cost about SGD $260. If inclusive of shipping it will be about SGD $280. But if buy the same specs locally it will cost only $320. Might as well pay $40 more for 1 year warranty and avoid the hassle to go ask ur US friend to buy for you and waiting time.

Eh, I think I'm answering my own questions. :Batting Eyelashes:

Actually I found the solution to buy from US oakley website. Go get a Citibank card if you haven't do so and sign up for free for the Borderlink service (http://www.citibank.com.sg/global_docs/edm/cc_globeshopper/edm.htm) and they will ship it over to Singapore.

Another problem solved.

You are right, warranty is not applicable for lens either locally or internationally anyway.

Eh. In that case I think I going to custom make my lens from the US oakley website again.

Does anyone know how to buy extra lens from Oakley website?

I tried to purchase from the oakley website, but they don't accept any other credit cards except those from US. Therefor I tried using the Borderlinx Concierge service. Anyone tried using that before? If not how did you make purchases from the oakley website?

Updates: I tried to use the Borderlinx Concierge service but they requested for more information, saying that I didn't give a specific URL for them to buy the item. But the problem is, that website is created with flash so it's impossible to get the exact URL, esp so I'm getting a custom.

So, I'm going to seek help frm my friend's sister who is in US working right now and got a American credit card to get and ship for me.

So troublesome right.

There's this promo from Smith Optics for SSBR/AHM runners. Not too sure is this glasses good? There's only the distributor website, and I can't seem to be able to locate this brand in normal optical shops. Not too sure can it fit me..

Not too sure if they can arrange a fitting session for all runners.. haha..

I got a friend staying in US but going back to Singapore for good. Before she leave I asked her to help me to buy back the sunglasses.

I custom made flak jacket (asian fitting) silver frame with black iridium normal polarized lens. In addition one extra pair of fire normal polarized lens and cleaning kit. All together only USD $329.95 / S$448+. Free shipping because my friend will bring back for me. :)
