Frame: Matte Black
Lens: Warm Grey
A nice and solid pair of inexpensive Oakleys. As others have commented, these are not small frames or lenses and the new styling retains some of the Oakley edginess of old. They are comfortable, lightweight and fit my face just great. The wrap is excellent and light leakage around the frame at the temples is virtually non-existent. The warm grey lenses are relatively basic for Oakley but, that said, they seem to do the job just fine so no complaints. The slightly utilitarian look of the matte black plastic finish works for me and what I wanted - which was a pair of "everyday" working Oakleys. The only downside is that the wrap is so effective that it can "seal" the frames against ny face so that moisture from my my eyes can mist up the inside of he lenses. (I could do with vented lenses...!)
I bought mine tax-free in an air-side outlet before boarding a flight because I realised I'd forgotten to pack my shades so bagged a pretty good price. I previously had Juliet in Carbon / Black Iridium (just awesome) but those got stolen a while back and I always intended to replace them but had never quite gotten around to it. The new Tens, to be fair, are not Juliets - but then they were never going to be and that wasn't what I was looking for.
Overall, very happy with these and they get a five, not for being the absolute best ever but for fully achieving what they are intended to be.

Awesome frames, awesome lense.
It would be a 5 if they kept the gold colour scheme with the oakley "O" gold as well
Frame: Dark grey
Lens: Black iridium polarized
Just got them,and they're really something.It's one of those pairs that make me forget the aversion I have for the recent fashion orientated oakleys,(g*ddamn you dispatch 2),and say that the original oakley is still alive and strong.What if the lenses are squared?Oakley used to release square lenses since the mid 90's with the square wires.There is such an amazing detail on this pair,both on the orbitals and the earstems,that make this such an artwork.Still I would like much less detail on the earstems,since the sculpture is not as succesful as on the unknown for example.Since I couldn't wear the unknown though,(too small for me),those were a great chance to own the dark grey finish.Not an fmj coating though,just a plain paint coating,it's coarse and shiny,very impressive.The fit is typical frogskin-ish,and unlike the older tens,this is one pair for medium to large heads.Although I enjoy them,I have to point out that oakley has messed things up a little,by releasing the X,which is supposed to be made for small to medium heads,and the new XX which is supposed to be for larger heads,vice versa.I don't know what made them to act so,but i still don't mind since I enjoy the outcome.It's so great that it made me forget the second thoughts I had about purchasing a signature pair,and I'm already considering buying even the ducati collection although I'm not a ducati fan.Once more,kudos to oakley again man!!!

My first pair of Oakleys and for the money a really decent pair of shades.
Lens vision is spot on, clear yet cutting sunlight - brilliant.

For my birthday, I wanted a pair of polarized Oakleys. I play a lot of Sand Volleyball, and wasn't sure if I wanted a pair of oakleys to play in or just have a back up pair. Maybe it's because I'm Asian but these fit a bit loose, so I won't be playing seriously in these. They do fit tighter when I wrap the arms around a baseball cap. Overall, they are a great pair for chill outdoor activities and style, but for playing I will grab a pair of half jackets.
