I forgot, I also have a pair of Maui Jims that are OLD. Probably got them around 1999-2000. I only wear them when I think about them and only when I go out running because they are more athletic type sunglasses as opposed to the fashionable Pradas.

$20 at Rite Aid! That way I won't feel bad if they get lost/crushed. I almost always wear glasses anyways so I just get UV coated glasses. I hate wearing contacts.

I wouldn't spend no more than 10 dollars, anything more than that is just plain stupid....for sunglasses...you gotta be kidding me

oh, it says Prada, or Gucci.........is that suppose to impress me??? it doesn't

I like the cheap ones, because if i lose them or get them scratched, in the car or beach, i just throw them out and buy new ones...... I have better things to spend my money on...

I don't buy sunglasses to impress anybody. Nobody knows who makes mine. I buy them for function. It wasn't until I went fly fishing that I noticed the difference! I treat & care for them like any other accessory I own...which means they last for years. Once you've owned a pair of exceptionally good sunglasses, it's hard to go back.

I always wore drugstore cheap until one day I picked up a pair of Kate Spades at TJ Maxx. They were originally $85 but I only paid $35 and even that was pricey for me. Since then I have picked up a couple others of the same style when I find them marked down. There really is a difference and nobody knows what brand they are but me and that suits me fine.

...$250.00

They're also prescription, which explains the steep price

I don't think $85 is worthy of guilt if you're not likely to lose them. In fact, all of my cheap ones combined may have totalled to that much. But, see, for me quantity is what's important because I tend to lose the damn things.
