Frame: carbon
Lens: black iridium polarized
OK This website needs another Juliet review like I need another hole in my head, but I just want to really quantify as best I can why I own these and will always measure every other pair of shades against these.

First off I want to talk about the importance I assign to having a frame that is nearly indestructable. I think more than anything a good Oakley fanatic cares for his sunnies like one would care for fine jewelry. The fact that X-metal frames are nearly imprevious to damage is definately a buying point, but ironically one who would spend that much money on a pair of shades really has no intention of putting these in a situation where they would be subject to damage.

This is an interesting paradox. On the one hand you're buying a frame that is strong and durable. On the other hand you care for it as if it is delicate as gold foil. Here is my theory on that. In my opinion few things transcend what I would consider your "day to day" product. One that the individual takes pride in owning. Not as a status symbol, not as a means of keeping up with the Jones, but as something intrisically special in its own right. The product becomes more than what it is functionally designed to be.

Like all of Oakley's products the clarity of the lenses is unsurpassed. As a matter of fact the polarized lenses give one the feeling of "Gosh I can actually see better, clearer, and with better definition with these than with the naked eye" This leads to an almost obsessive need to keep these clean and oil free. So much so that when you do get a smudge it's like having a rock in your shoe, you just have to get rid of it! The only beef I have with this and every other O lense is that they do scratch much easier than I care for.

Getting a scratch on these lenses is heart-breaking. I'm not saying that getting a scratch is unavoidable, I'm saying even the uttmost care does not insure a perfect lense. Yes they are better than most as far as impact resistance is concerned and when it comes down to it that is definately more important than scratch resistance. At any rate indestructable frames do not mean indestructable lenses.

On to style. Yes they are distinct. They stand apart from others, but they are not outlandish. They are edgy, but classic. The earstems just make you think "I wonder how they came up with this". First of all who makes a titanium alloy frame, second these things literally have a suspension system that allows the frame not only a comfortable yet firm fit, but adjusts itself appropriately to your face while maintaining its rigid form. Unbelievably clever. Any way this is my official review of the Juliets. I really doubt that this will change anyone's mind as to why one would want these, but for me they are essential.

Frame: Carbon
Lens: Black Iridium

The legendary Juliet.

Now, these are an absolutely beautiful pair of glasses, in more than one sense of the term. They look and fit great. They don't even fit me properly, which is an emminent problem with X Metals if you have Asian features but I have to say that amongst all the X Metals, these fit me best (and I've worn five out of six of them).

A great thing too is the number of frame and lens options. It's almost like an M-Frame; customise it to your needs! Get a different pair of lenses installed in your favourite frame, it's easy! Just grab a T6 screwdriver and a pair of lenses and you're all set. You're bound to get a combination that suits you.

But how's coverage? Not a problem. Up, down, left and right, you won't have any light leaking in to roast your retina.

If you ever needed to make one sunglass purchase in your life, get a Juliet. Even at retail. I wouldn't be surprised if that's the only sunglass purchase you'd ever have to make!

Frame: X-metal
Lens: Black Iridium

I love these glasses. I've had mine since 98, and the serial number is 001941, so I consider myself pretty lucky. I first got them from a friend of mine who, at the time, worked at a Sunglass hut at the Mall of America in Minnesota and had overstock of the X-metal frame color. This is about when most people went nuts over the plasma/fire color scheme.

I've sent my Juliet's (these ones, anyhow) back to Oakley twice, both times to get the bridge to orbital sections retightened. They've since not given my any problems. The lenses are still the ones back from 98, though, so they've seen a lot, but are still quite decent.

I've heard a wide range of complaints about these glasses---they're too heavy, too ostentatious, too pricey, etc. I've never noticed the weight too much at all, but I wear a lot of sunglasses--not exclusively Oakley--so I have a pretty good range of experience, and I must be biased. Second, I took care of the ostentatious part by buying the least flashy color combo. And thirdly, I bought mine for 50$.

These are effectively my favorite Oakley sunglasses. I wear them all the time. They might be dethroned by the A-wires, but that's a long shot.

I felt that for many years, the popularity and the immediate recognizability of the Juliet made it the quintiseential Oakley sunglass--basically the sunglass the pride and joy of Oakley much like the Arista/g-15 lens Aviator is the trademark of Ray-Ban.

In closing, the Juliets, as well as being the sunglasses most associated with the Oakley visage today (before it was probably straight jackets, zeros, and M-Frames), they are one of the few sunglasses out there on the market that actually look better in reality than they do in photographs--which is exceedingly rare!

Frame: TiO2
Lens: VR28/Black

The flagship of Oakley sunglasses, the Juliet is truly a sight to behold and an incredible innovation in eyewear. This rendition consisting of a TiO2 frame with VR28/Black Iridium lenses is one of the best. Flex couplers, interchangeble nosebombs and temple shocks enable a customized fit, and the VR28/Black lenses provide protection in bright light - yet prove to be useful in most low-light conditions as well. The two-toned TiO2 frame completes this pair as one of the most visually appealing pairs of Oakleys ever produced.
fullback -
Frame: Polished
Lens: G30

Though pricey, the Juliets are well worth the investment. For the price you're paying, make sure the hinges, flex couplers, and/or orbitals aren't overly tight or loose and that the amount of flex on both sides is balanced. I like the fact that extra temple shocks and nosebombs are supplied for a custom fit, not to mention that there are plenty of replacement lenses to choose from. These are solid glasses and indestructable. I personally like the weight of the glasses.

Initially, I thought I had to take the ear stems off in order to insert new temple shocks. In the process of doing so, one of the clear washers fell out and now I'm unable to put them back in. It doesn't affect the operation of the hinges though. DO NOT TAKE THE EAR STEMS OFFif you don't know what you're doing!!!

I purchased my pair slightly used but for a exceptionally low price. As a result, they're my beater pair. I can chuck them around, leave them in my car in sub-zero weather, etc ... and not worry about them.

The hammerstems are a nice touch though I don't think they serve any function in terms of fit and comfort.

Final thoughts: Purchase a pair and you won't be disappointed.

Fits my large head ok, but the X-metal XX is a bit better.

Frame: X-Metal/Plasma
Lens: Ruby Iridium
When I got my first pair of these fine frames, it was a dream come true (as I had been wanting these since the very first X-Men movie). I realized as soon as I put them on that I bought an amazing piece of art.
First off, the fit right off the bat turned out pretty sweet. The flex-couplers made the frame feel quite comfortable and not so irritating. Also, having the rubber on both the nosepads and earsocks definitely helped out.
Probably one of the best thing to come out of it, however, was the fact that I now have an obsession with the Ruby Iridium Lenses. I'm currently working on having all my pairs with them, but for the most part, I am quite happy with Oakley's choice in combining them with the X-metal frame.
Hopefully, I get my other frames back from the shop so I can have Trish's combination from Devil May Cry (as she wears the Juliet in the series). -Shadic Rexx

Oakley Juliet 04-151, I never really paid attention, to juliets. I bought a brand new pair of Oakley juliets for $150 dllls, with box and coin ,and all pieces. From a young kid who had to many glasses. Well when I saw the real price holy smokes their expensive. 700 dlls on eBay. Well I like the glasses but prefer x squared. I now use juliets for work.. and x- squared for day out . Viva la Oakley
ROMEO -
Frame: All
Lens: All
The Juliet has become the mainstay and sits in the middle of the X-Metal line-up. Smaller than the Romeo, Mars, and XX. Larger than the Penny.
It doesnt have the design flaw of the Romeo in regards to lens cracking.
Bear in mind that it doesnt have a spring hinge like the Penny does. The Juliet has fangs that dig in your head and requires technique when putting them on and taking them off. The first generation plasma frame is prone to discoloration, giving it a weathered almost rusted look to it. However, the fire lens that matches the first gen plasma frame is really deep!

Frame: 24K
Lens: Titanium Iridium Polarized

As a farewell to perhaps Oakley's biggest and most successful high-end pair of shades, the 24K Juliet was briefly launched with 750 sequentially serial-numbered pairs. Selling out almost instantly, they became a classic.

At first I was a bit disappointed that they didn't come equipped with 24K Polarized lenses, but after a while I admired the Titanium Polarized lenses... almost as much. Oakley still should have released this pair with 24K Polarized lenses, but overall they deserve the full five-skull rating.

It will be interesting to see whether or not Oakley can release a pair of shades that command the same amount of respect as the Juliet in the future.

Frame: X-Metal/Plasma/24k
Lens: Ruby/Ice/Tungsten Polarized

I'm afraid that I "discovered" the Juliet a bit late. I bought my first pair in 2010. Originally, I thought of these as female-specific frame, due to the Romeo being fairly new at the time. I guess the name just threw me off. They very much remind me of my A-Wire Thick that I bought in 1999. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if they used the same lens. I have yet to see a version or colorway that hasn't been awesome, and that has made me regret missing some of the rarer styles.

Probably my favorite pair to date - polished frame brings out the shades of green and purple from the deep blue of the lens. Never fails to turn heads, matches whatever I'm wearing perfectly. Chic and flashy.

Another classic from Oakley. Used for cycling, and casual. A little heavy compared to the plastic or wire styles, but incredible glasses. Flex points and adjustable earstem spacers and nose pieces made these a perfect fit.

Frame: X-Metal
Lens: Ruby Iridium

Simply amazing and absolutely worth every penny. I had never planned on getting pair of Juliets, but after coming across these custom X-Metal/Ruby with red Unobtainium beauties for a very reasonable price on eBay that was just too good to pass up, I just couldn't say no. They both look and fit great, although the only problem I have with them is that one of the lenses wiggles around a little bit on contact. Regardless of that, they still get the top rating because the good things about them heavily outweigh the one bad thing. A few members have suggested different ways to remedy this apparently common problem, but I might just leave well enough alone for the time being. Nonetheless, these are my new favorites and it would take something pretty spectacular to even come close to replacing them at the top of my list.

If I were to pick one sunglass that encompasses Oakley, this would be it. A killer looking pair of sunglasses, super durable (only casting liquid titanium alloy could do that) and the ingenuity that went into these is crazy! The cost of them is well worth it.

Frame: Polished
Lens: Blue Iridium

The Polished finish is great on the Juliet. It makes is stand out in the crowd. Not many people would be interested in a polished frame pair of sunglasses that is as eyecathing as the Juliet. But I don't let that stop me!

The polished finish is excellent, no scuffs or anything, but I am fearfull that these might come up. Let's just hope not. The Blue Iridium brings a nice contrast to the shiny frame which makes this pai look really special. Even when you aren't in to Oakley's or know anything about them, looking at a pair of Polished - Blue Iridium Juliets make you realise that it something very special and simply a thing of beauty.

Frame: Polished
Lens: Fire Iridium Polarized

These glasses are just AMAZING.

Firstly, the workmanship and the way they fit around your head is second to none.

The second point I want to make is that if you're going to get a pair of Juliets I really don't see the point in going for Black/Ice/Emerald or any of the darker lens. Its a personal preferance but I brought these because I think they felt and looked superb on my face. I tried on a few pairs and although they all look good, the reason you get these is to turn heads and what better way to do that than a fire iridium lens and polished frame.

I would suggest trying them on at a store first if you're going to buy them online. I went with a couple of friends and while the Juliets look good on me, one of the guys I was with looked like a retarded bug with them on. His face is rounder and more plump. I think they fit better if you have a straigher, more defined face.

The bottom line, these shades are definately worth the money. If they look good on you and you've got the cash, buy them. The quality feels(and is) solid. The extra weight and polished metal makes them feel far superior to any other oakley frame out there (the plastic frames seem cheap and pale in comparison).

I LOVE THESE. Contrary to my review on my x-metal ruby's these fit perfectly and sit snug on my face.(I don't know why but this frame seems to fit better...no explanation) The contrast between the DEEP RUBY lens and the dark CARBON frame compliment each other. Excellent eye coverage. Comes with 2 sizes of templeshox and nose pieces you can set them up to fit you perfectly. I have added red unob's to top them off.
These will sit perched upon my face when they bury me.

This is an absolutely sweet looking combo. I love the look of this setup. The Ruby lenses have a blueish look when you are wearing them. This is a good lens for any occasion. I personally found that these did not fit me as well as I had hoped. Too bad because they are so damn sweet. A bit on the heavy side, but indestructable frames.

These are definitely one of the more stylish X-Metals from Oakley. They fit nice and snug with the right tshocks but not uncomfortably tight. So basically, they don't give you a headache but you're not always worried about them falling off your face. They're durable and completely customizeable too. So you can change the frame and lens combos to suit your taste or mood. You can also replace the parts on them so if lenses or an earstem gets ruined, they're aren't just headed for the garbage. Very nice eye coverage as well. Covers the entire range of vision without compromising the peripheral field to much. They're good for sports and just to add some style to your day to day attire. Oakley definitely did their homework on this design!

I got this very hot baby when my dad went to America in 1998. He's not a big fan of Oakley before.
He just went to the product launching at one of the O-Store and he was very anxious to buy this one.
Then he bought it coz he really loved it, and so do I..

The reason he bought it are because the model's so fantastic, the indestructible material, and most important is it's the 1st Juliet combo ever made..

We still have it in excellent condition for both the lens and the frame. That's the reason I gave these full 5 skulls besides how good I feel while I wear those because it hug my face really tight but still comfortable.
TERRORISM -
Frame: Carbon
Lens: Black Iridium

The Juliets are perhaps the most popular, sought-after, and admired of all Oakley shades ever made - in addition to being some of the most durable sunglasses ever made. With this particular frame, however, I have noticed problems: the lens in the left orbital (as you're wearing the glasses) always seems to be loose. This is an issue that has plagued Oakley from the initial release of the Carbon frame for the Juliets, and the issue persists still today (years later). These glasses would have received a 5-star rating, but due to the lack of quality from the lenses being loose (and I have noticed this in EVERY pair of Carbon frame Juliets at retail, not just the several pairs that I personally own), I can only give this pair a 3-star rating... For a $300 retail tag, these sunglasses should be flawless.

Almost all about these glasses has already been said but why Oakley used these pesky T6 screws on glasses of this quality I simply can't understand.

Frame: Carbon
Lens: Polarized Black Iridium

I bought these Jan. 1, 2007. New year, new shades. One thing I didn't like about these is that they cost as much as a Xbox 360! The nosebombs absorb sweat very well. I really wish they put the spring hinges on the Juliets like they did for the Pennys. When you put them on, it scrapes against your temples which hella hurts and is gay. Another problem with the Juliets is that they don't say Oakley on them or have the O ellipse symbols on the side like the Splice which is why I suggest they splice (no pun intended) the Juliet with the Splice to make it look cooler and look more Oakley. They should also give you a choice to buy differant color earsocks, temple shocks, and nosebombs. They sell brown and black. They should sell blue, red, and other colors etc...

This is quite a popular pair. Quite radical in design. One plus point is you can customize the fit with different numbered T-shoxs and different sized nosebombs to suit different face shapes. Flex couplers will get loose over time.

Ruby Iridium lenses are easily one of the most versatile lenses that can be used in almost every light condition. You'll have to squint a little under terribly bright conditions. But that isn't a very serious matter...

Frame: X-Metal
Lens: Ruby Iridium & Blue Iridium

Does the Juliet really need another review? Probably not, but what the heck.

The Juliet is not my favorite X-Metal, the Romeo 2.0 is. But I have 2 pairs of them anyway and one more on the way. What is it about these sunglasses that almost no one on the O-Review has just one pair? They are arguably the most iconic Oakley sunglasses. Which is ironic since they don't even have the Oakley Icon on them.

There is definitely a mystique to these sunglasses. An X factor that really can't be identified. Some kind of magnetism brings a mutant obsession to them. I'd wager that even if you only had one eye, you'd want to wear them. If you could control the weather, you'd make it sunny every day, just to be able to wear them.

Here's what I'd like to see in Juliet 2.0 that would make them worthy of a 5 in my book. First, hammer earstems. At least on my head, they're not purely an aesthetic improvement, they're functional in that they don't squeeze my temples as much. Second, put a freaking Icon on them! These are Oakleys, aren't they? Third and finally, just a tiny little bit more eye coverage.

This custom combo is just awesome! The stealthy look from the X-metal and the always present green from the G26 is a perfect combination.

My absolute favorite Oakley product. The ability to customize the fit and look of these glasses is spectacular. Every pair of sunglasses I've put on touch my right eyebrow but the temple pads of varying thicknesses allows me to customize the fit to work on my head. I also have a pair of Plasma/Emerald Juliets which I love but the Polished/Blue Iridium is a beautiful combination. I have been looking for a lens for more medium light where I would not have to sacrifice color neutrality and the Blue Iridium works well. The polished frame with the hammer arms make the fit snug but not too tight. These glasses are heavy but ft on the face very lightly when customized. Exceptionally well made and beautiful to boot.

One of the finest models Oakley has produced (as evidenced by the vast array of versions available). The Juliet took the path that the original Romeo created and placed sunglasses on the next level. The Juliet is a slightly smaller frame, which fits most faces a bit better than the larger Romeo. It also features the nose bridge with flex couplers, which eliminate the stress that used to be put on the lenses in the Romeo. These two changes made for a much better sunglass for most people. My Juliets are my favorite pair to wear, as they are unmistakably Oakley, provide excellent coverage, fit my face very well. Now that I'm thinking about all the things that make the Juliet so special, I want to get another pair...

Very nice combo and frames! Always get great comments when I am out and about. Very slick and well designed. The frame design hugs your head well and it will NOT fall off from extreme head movement. Very nice and you won't regret it!

This is probably my least favorite of Juliet combinations. For some reason I just don't think the Emerald looks good with the iridium. That's why I gave it 4 stars. Either way, I had to pick one up for the collection.

Frame: Carbon

As dark as you can go with the Juliets. I really like this color combination a lot. I use these as my beat up pair since they are so common. The black iridium is an excellent choice to wear for anything from sports to hanging out at the beach.

Frame: X-Metal
Lens: Black

This color combinations is one of the classics. The x-metal frame looks good as always and with a dark lens like the black iridium makes it look even better. But I like all Juliets so what can I say. Eye coverage again is awesome. Must have for any collector.

Frame: Carbon/TiO2
Lens: VR50(Finito)/VR28 Black Iridium

The first time you try on a pair of Juliets you realise what all the fuss is about. Aside from the styling, the fit is secure and coverage excellent. So if you're unsure about which X-Metal frame would fit your face best, the Juliet is always a safe choice.

The Carbon frame is quite subtle and I've found it to feel lighter than other variants and a perfect compliment to the VR50(Finito) lenses. On the other extreme, TiO2 looks very sporty and again works well with the VR28 lens. I have no problem wearing these frames for prolonged periods, though some might find the weight to be a limiting factor. Also it's always a good idea to experiment with the interchangeable nose bombs and temple shocks to find the fit that's just right for you.

they fit well on my round face giving it a longer slimmer look. the fire lense can not pass by unnoticed so wearing this one of these babies you will not pass by unnoticed.

The only problem would be the narrow lense that limits my view on some angles but that is noting compare to the other qualities of this amazing pair.4 on 5

At first i didn't think the Juliet was for me. Monster Dog was a perfect fit on me, and the Juliet just seemed to smaal. But alas it just fits! And a couple of weeks after having bought my first Juliet i find myself owning two of them. Just an awesome piece of eyewear!

These are so fly! It was well worth the money. They have the awesome fit of a Juliet. The icing on the cake is the cool OO Blue lens. These look really good out and they have the different shades of blue to green with a hint of purple (I think, I'm color blind so they look different to me) when the light hits it.

Frame: X-Metal
Lens: Ruby Iridium

Good: After the released of X-Men movie few years ago, this Juliet combo is still the most sought after Juliet pair. I can't deny its true beauty!! Only with the so-called '1st Generation Ruby' lens though. This is also my favourite pair along with Carbon Ichiro =)

Bad: Very costly if u're trying to get them now! Also the later Ruby (3rd Gen) lens does not look like Ruby lens at all!

Frame: Carbon
Lens: OO Blue Iridium (Ichiro 51 Sig)

Good: I'd say this is 1 of the BEST looking Juliet!!! Its rarity is just like the so-called '1st Generation' Ruby/X-Metal Juliet. The lens look much more beautiful in real life than in pictures! They have purple AND green hues! My MOST favourite combo! An easy 5! (^o^)_b

Bad: NONE!! Apart from that it could look better if it comes with hammer earstems and very costly if u're trying to get one now!

Frame: X-Metal
Lens: Ruby Iridium
I'm almost upset with the Ruby because of all the nonsense surrounding them as of late. I bought mine for retail back when it was first released and for that I am grateful. I can't imagine paying the outrageous prices these are currently going for. That said, it is a must for any serious collector. Beware of those claiming "first generation" - there are no generations. There are batch differences, just as there are with all Juliet lenses. First Generation is a marketing ploy by online dealers who want to create more excitement in an effort to extort higher prices (unfortunately it seems to work). It has been suggested that the first 5000 pieces have the added perk of being known as X-men Limited Editions, although I have seen no quantifiable evidence to substantiate this claim.
Rick -
Frame: X-Metal
Lens: Gold Iridium
I don't know much about this combination's origins at all. It just appeared on Ebay one day and bemused us all. The Gold Iridium lens is a pleasant lens that is versatile and soothing to the eye. The X-Metal frame is the original frame and together they create a bit of a boring combination. They are rare and that always earns points with me.
Rick -
Frame: X-Metal
Lens: Black Iridium
This was the only available color combination when Oakley originally launched the Juliet back in 1998. For this reason alone it receives full marks. This is the Granddaddy of all Juliets and deserves respect. There may be a slough of flashier combos now, but this is an important piece to any formidable Juliet collection. Respect your elders.
Rick -
Frame: X-Metal (Ducati)
Lens: Black
The lesser-known and harder-to-find Ducati Juliet. This was probably replaced when the Carbon frame was introduced. Pretty much identical to the original X-Metal/Black Juliet released back in 1998, with the exception of the serial# prefix, red unobtainium, and the Ducati inscription on the left lens. I have seen that some people swap out their Black Iridium lenses for Ruby lenses - I am not a fan of this since it takes away from the originality of the Ducati theme. Keep your Ducati's Ducati's and keep your Finito's Finito's. You wouldn't put Camaro rims on your Corvette would you?
Rick -
Frame: Titanium
Lens: Gold Iridium
Classy. Not much more to say. This is the only available Titanium frame version of the Juliet. There are some generational differences among Titanium frames. I prefer the earlier versions, but they are very rare nowadays. This version comes with the rootbeer unobtainium which subtlly differentiates this model from the rest.
Rick -
Frame: TiO2
Lens: VR28 Black Iridium
This is a very popular version of the Juliet. Further proof that unique frame/lens option models are more desireable and respected than your run-of-the-mill Plasma/Ice and Plasma/Emeralds. The two tone frame is exactly like the one available on the X-Metal XX. The VR28 Black Iridium lens is another lens option that doesn't quite get the respect it deserves. It functions well in a wide variety of conditions and it provides a great deal of protection while looking good. At one point, I think everyone who has this combo has either swapped the lenses for ice or at least thought about it. I much prefer the original lenses although I must admit I did the swap back in the day. Either way, this is a great Juliet option that is worth the money.
Rick -
Frame: Polished
Lens: Ti Clear Iridium
The more flashy of the two Japan-only Ti Clear releases. Hard to find due to the low numbers produced. True versions have a JPP prefix on the serial. All Japan-only releases come with serials so beware of versions that claim to be real but don't have the serial number.
Rick -
Frame: Polished (Ichiro)
Lens: Slate Iridium
Another stunning version of the Ichiro Juliet. This is the second incarnation of the Ichiro J. The Slate Iridium is like a cross between the Ti Clear and the Black Iridium lens. I like it. The blue unobtainium is a cool feature of this model. Some come with serials and some come without so you might want to confirm that before purchasing one (if that kind of thing concerns you).
Rick -
Frame: Polished
Lens: G30
People who try this pair on usually comment about how "pink" makes things appear. Maybe at first I would agree, but I have come to respect the G30 lens and I think this is one of the unsung Juliets that deserves more attention. It is similar in aspects to the VR50 Black Iridium. They seem to be becoming more availabe recently. Oakley markets the G30 as the perfect golfing lens, but I can't corroborate that claim since I hate golfing. Sorry Mike :(
Rick -
Frame: Polished
Lens: Fire Iridium Polarized
One of three polarized Juliets released. Black Iridium and Ice Iridium are the other choices. Out of the three I would probably put the Fire at the bottom. Why? Can't really explain other than saying I have all three but hardly ever opt for this one. This one is very expensive online for some reason. Don't be surprised to pay retail. Be sure it is polarized before pulling the trigger because Oakley did release a non-Polarized/Fire version.
Rick -
Frame: Polished
Lens: Fire Iridium
The vast majority of Polished/Fire combos I have seen are Polarized so this is a bit of an oddity. Most verisons of this one come with the recent version of the Fire lens which is more orange than earlier incarnations. It is a flashy pair that is sure to get some looks. You don't see this one for sale very often so if you are looking to build your Juliet collection, you should jump on this one soon before they all dry up.
Rick -
Frame: Polished (Ichiro)
Lens: Emerald Slate Iridium
Quite simply the most beautiful of all color combinations. The Emerald Slate may not be great in bright light, but it is so pretty you just can't help falling in love with it. I really like the green unobtainium too. This is the 4th of 5 Ichiro Juliets. Some come with a serial # and some don't. I suggest picking up a serial #'d one if that sort of thing matters to you. I highly recommend this one and it is still widely available through Oakley and online.
Rick -
Frame: Polished
Lens: Blue Iridum
Cooler and hard to come by than the ever-popular Plasma/Ice Juliet. I prefer the deeper blue of the Blue Iridum to that of the Ice. This is becoming harder to find these days as it was discontinued a while ago while hoards of Ice Juliets are still being sold. Identical in many aspects to the original Ichiro Juliet, but with a different serial prefix.
Rick -
Frame: Polished (Ichiro)
Lens: Blue Iridium
This was the first version of the Ichiro produced by Oakley. It has black unobtainium. It's pretty much identical to the non-Ichiro Polished/Blue combo if not for the special IS-serial #. These tend to go for more than retail since numbers were kept low. I think somewhere in the 2000-3000 range. A must for the Ichiro Juliet fanatic. Personally, I would have liked to see blue unobtainium on this one.
Rick -
Frame: Plasma
Lens: Ti Clear Iridium
Japan-only release back in 2002. Two thousand produced and very hard to come by even in Japan. Japanese clamor for anything with the designation "Exclusive" so finding one of these babies is very unlikely. Living in Japan has been a huge advantage, but it was still hard to track one down. The Ti Clear lens has its pluses and its minueses, but I find they are a great alternative on those overcast days that don't really require sunglasses. Yeah, there is a bit of an issue with "ghost" reflections on the inside of the lens, but these are easy to adjust to. The Ti Clear has a really slick silver look to it and I have become a huge fan recently. Combine its coolness with the fact that it is super rare and you can see why this was a must for my collection.
Rick -
Frame: Plasma
Lens: Ice Polarized
A polarized version of the most generic Juliet on the market. It has a bit of flash to it and it works in medium to very bright lighting conditions. A bit too much on the "safe" side for me to give it full marks.
Rick -
Frame: Plasma
Lens: Ice
As I mentioned on my review of the Plasma/Fire combo, I prefer the earlier versions of the Plasma frame as compared to the later ones. The Plasma/Ice Juliet is, in my opinion, the most generic of all combinations. I see this combo more than any other and for that it loses points with me. The Ice lens is a great lens, but it is so common that it kind of bores me. Call me a snob, but that's just the way I feel. Way too many other interesting combos out there to spend your money on. I mean no offence to those who own this own - I own this and the Polarzied one myself.
Rick -
Frame: Plasma
Lens: Fire Iridium
I believe the Fire Juliet was the first Juliet that had a little flash to it. Original Plasma frames are quite a bit different from the recent ones. Duller in tones, almost a "boney" or "chalky" finish. I also perfer the earlier Fire lenses as compared to the recent ones. I have always been a fan of the Fire lens and this is one of my all-time favorites. I would suggest all collectors look into finding one of the originals though.
Rick -
Frame: Plasma
Lens: Emerald Iridium
Not one of my personal favorites, although I do like the look of the Emerald Iridium lens. Overall, there a few detractors surrounding this release. I believe this was, at one time, a Sunglass Hut exclusive. The relationship between Oakley and SGH soured when SGH was acquired by sunglass distribution giant Luxottica. Models with the Emerald are now for sale everywhere. I'd say that this combo, along with the Plasma Ice are the most common ones you'll see. It's nice, but it's a tad too generic for me to give it full marks.

(Luxottica owns Ray Ban and we do not like Ray Ban)
Rick -
Frame: Carbon (Finito)
Lens: VR50 Black Iridium
Ricardo "Finito" Lopez is an unlikey ambassador for Oakley. The recently-retired Mexican boxer compiled a professional record of 48-0-1 with 36 KO's, yet he remains virtually unknown in mainstream sporting circles. Well, that didn't stop Oakley from naming a Juliet after him. The Fintio Juliet is one of my all-time favorites. The VR50 lens is great in a wide range of lighting conditions.
Rick -
Frame: Carbon (Ichiro)
Lens: OO Blue Irdium (Blue Iridium)
Oh yes, the infamous mystery Ichiro. Collectors still clamor to get their hands on this one. I have it on pretty good authority that this model was recalled by Ichiro himself. Not sure why, but rumor has it he was not a fan of th carbon frame. Seems strange given the recent release of an X-Metal-framed Ichiro, but nonetheless, this particular Ichiro remains highly sought after. Prices for this one can reach dizzying heights, but it is a must for any formidable Juliet collector. There has been much conversation about the differences between Blue and OO Blue Iridium and to be quite frank I don't make that distinction. I look at it like this: some Blue Iridium lenses are different in color-tone from others. Some seem more green, some seem true blue, some have purple tones, but they are all Blue Iridium in my book. I've owned three different specimens of this combo and all the lenses differed. Whatever the case, this is a highly-collectible Juliet that will frustrate the collector, but it is a historical piece of X-Metal history worth the money, time and effort it will take to acquire.
Rick -
Frame: Carbon
Lens: Black Iridium Polarized
This is the perfect pair of J's for the person who wants maximum performance with minimum attention being drawn to them. If you are sold on the style of the Juliet, but want to remain somewhat incognito, this is the pair for you. The polarized lenses are great for cutting down glare on snow, water, and concrete.
Rick -
Frame: Carbon
Lens: Black
This is a great option if you like the look and style of the Juliet, but you don't want a combination that attracts too much attention. There has been a bit of an issue with the quality of the flex coupler in recent releases. Be prepared for one side to be considerably looser than the other. This doesn't really affect the fit, but it is a tad disconcerting that a pair of glasses of this quality have imperfections. I suggest staying away from online purchases with this one due to the quality-control issue. This is a functional colorway that provides huge protection from bright light.
Rick -
Frame: Carbon (Ducati)
Lens: Black
I'm a little bit tired of this one, since there seems to be a flood of them out there. Basically, it's a Carbon/Black combo with red earsocks and the word "Ducati" inscribed one the left lens. I guess they are attractive but I just feel they lacking in the personality department I much perfer the X-Metal framed Ducati since it at least has a little exclusivity that goes along with it. If you don't mind having a pair of Juliets that everyone else in the world has, or soon will, then go for it.
Rick -
Frame: Carbon
Lens: 24k Gold Iridium
There is a story floating around out there that this is the Corvette Juliet. I don't pay much creedence to this since there has been nothing in the form of proof to back up this claim other than the mention that Oakley provided the first 50 pairs of these to a Corvette Racing Team. At any rate, this is a spectacular combination that is quite rare in North America. Originally, this was thought to be a Japan-Exclusive, however there have been reports of it availabilty in other countries such as Canada and the UK. This is the only combination of the Juliet availabe with the 24k Gold lenses and they really stand out in contrast to the dark carbon frame. A real stunner. Definitely a must for the Juliet aficianado.
Rick -
Frame: Brown
Lens: VR28 Black Iridium
What makes this model of Juliet unique is the limited numbers of pairs produced. I'd be very surprised if they made more than 500 of these. The brown frame does appear to be quite similar to the Carbon, but upon seeing it in person there is a distinct difference. This is a subtle color combination, but it has a charm all its own. If you can get one for a reasonable price, I would suggest picking one up.
Rick -
Frame: X-Metal
Lens: Slate Iridium
Japan-only release on April 28, 2006 in commemoration of Japan's victory in the World Baseball Classic. Only 1000 produced. Seventy models released to Tokyo dealers. This is the 5th in the series of Ichiro Juliets. It marks the return of the serial number on the left arm as well as the first right-arm inscription. World Champ 06 is written on the right arm. The colorway is bland and the overall effect is a little underwhelming, however the collectibility factor is huge since there is a finite number of models released. Japanese retail price is 48,300 JPY including tax. These are running out fast and I wouldn't be surprised if they are all accounted for by the end of May. I was one of 3 people picking them up on the first day of their release.

Frame: Polished
Lens: Ice Iridium Polarized

I have had my Juliets for almost 4 years now. These originally came with the Fire Iridium Polarized lenses. They were cool looking and combined with the polished frame got a a lot of compliments. But for whatever reason the lenses didn't work that well for me. I would reddish reflections off of the inside of the lenses sometimes if the sunlight was behind me. Others may have different experiences but when the lenses got scratched I replaced them with the Ice polarized lenses. I had those on my A-wires and I am a big fan. I will probably get a pair of Fire polarized lenses just to have and so that I have lenses that match my serial number. I don't mind the weight of the Juliets. When you are wearing them you forget about them. The only time I am reminded about the weight is either when I put them on my head indoors or carrying them in my hand. The weight for me gives it the feeling of solidity and quality. It's kind of like my Omega Seamaster Chrono watch. I have the stainless steel version and it isn't light at atll. But it feels solid and I'm not worried about it breaking, just like the Juliets.

Frame: Plasma
Lens: Rx Black Iridium

I really love the design of the Juliet. I love how they look. I thought I would love these frames! When I got to the store and tried them on i was unsure. So rather than order a pair from O with Rx lens I purchased them as sunglasses. I got home and just wore them. I wore them out for 5 days straight. Got a lot of compliments but my peers thought otherwise. They told me "Ok, those are cool and all but they aren't everyday sunglasses" My parents agreed as well and thought they looked too outlandish. But I liked them but then again I did not. The hefty price tag made me want to keep them but as I thought it over I agreed. Its not everyday eyewear. As cool as they are I could not justify the price (i needed a pair of Rx sunglasses for everyday use and did not feel only having these would be good...) I went back to the store and returned them (cry). The total cost for a pair of Rx versions would have been $530 and I couldn't justify that at all.

I went with a more traditional frame (a la BORING to some of yous - Whisker) for my everyday Rx sunglasses and am very happy with them.

UPDATE: I got a pair of Rx Juliets in Plasma/Black. All I can say is the fit and finish of these things are top notch. I now wear these full time. They fit my face perfectly and I do get a few looks here and there and even a few compliments. I am very happy with these. I got these at a major discount. Long story. I bought a pair of used Juliets and sent them to Oakley for Rx lenses. They lost them and replaced them with brand new Plasma frames. I was very happy.

Frame: Carbon
Lens: Ice Iridium Polarized
Unobtanium: Blue

When I saw the Ichiro 51 Carbon/OO Blue Juliets, I knew I had to have them. Discontinued, I looked to eBay. I failed to find a reasonable priced pair so I began to construct a similar pair.

I purchased Carbon/Black Pol. at an O Store and purchased the blue Unobtanium pieces and Ice Pol. lenses off eBay. I found a pair of OO Blue lenses but they were going for $170. I then found Ice Pol for $90. Not exactly the same blue but I kept to the orginal Black/Blue scheme.

I like to think that I have a very unique pair.

Anyways, they hold very well to the face. They are not exactly the most comfortable. I tried on my friend's XX's and they were so lightweight, I couldn't even imagine that I was wearing a pair. Juliets, on the otherhand, are a bit on the weighty side. Though, I have had positive comments on these sunglasses from everyone. And yeah they do look good!

Sometimes, I leave them on my desk just to adore them.

The lenses are sharp. I don't know if they could sharpen my surroundings but I get a feeling that they do.

My first pair was a pair of dark/black pol.. And I really have forgotten about them ever since I purchased these.

The Magnesium Switch are more comfortable, the X-Metal Pennys fit my face better, and yet the Juliets are far and away my favorite Oakleys. I've heard complaints about the weight, but I like knowing these great looking Oakleys are on my face. So many color options to chose from, how can you not be satisfied. Available polarized lenses, the ability to customize by changing lens colors or Ear & T-Shox colors. Limited Edition models! I could go on and on about how great these are. My only criticism is that they no longer put serial #'s on the arms.

The Titanium frame is very similar to the plasma and for those unfamiliar with titanium & plasma would say the two are the same. I like the combination of Gold Iridium lens and brown rubbers, it give this model a distinct look. The gold iridium lens is good for very bright/sunny condition but could not recommend during dusky or gloomy conditon. Over all, this pair can stand by itself amongst the juliets.

Frame:Polished
Lens:G30

After several false starts I finally managed to acquire one of these beauties. I must say, the G30 lense has become my all time favourite. It is a stunning, stunning lense. I could reel off superlatives and wax poetic about these amazing lenses all day. Visually, the lense looks much more expensive than it is. Oakley consider this one of their cheaper lenses for some reason and that is a good thing as it is woefully underpriced and thus good value. At first look, you get a very pleasing pinkish brown tint with a gorgeous and subtle blue iridium hue that intensifies and combines with the lense tint depending on the angle you view it from. It's not as mirrored as other iridiums and looks almost like an anti-reflective quartz coating in its visual complexity. Very subdued but technically complex looking. This is subtle flashiness.

Looking through and it's amazing. Better than the legendary Maui Jim lense of similar hue, the soothing pink/sepia hues of the G30 cuts glare and enhances contrast to the point of silliness. Vision ends up sharper than 20/20 if that's possible. It gives warmth and glow to the world and because the tint is so light, you can wear these into the night with no trouble at all. The only downer is that when you take them off, the world looks green. Odd but true. I could get used to these and they are sure to become my everyday pair. If you need convincing, try a pair on yourself.

These are my first pair of Oakleys. For that, they will always be a centerpiece of my collection. On the more practical side of things, they are almost too nice for everyday use. I bought them to use for tennis, but I was too afraid of damaging them to get any real use. Also, they are quite a bit more heavy than my jackets so they don't have the same comfort level.

Homage to the Juliet. Not quite as pleasing to me design wise as the Romeo, but more practical. One of the icons of the X-Metal line, just as the Straight Jacket was the Jacket icon; the E-Wire, the wire icon, etc.

Juliet is one of the few designs by Oakley that makes you coming back for more. It truly is a work where the science follows the art rather than the other way around which often times ends up into something of a shallow trend.

I believe this is the most well-known combination of juliet. Lots of adjectives have been attached to the description of juliet already, that giving one will be redundant.

This particular combination of frame and lens looks great. I found them heavy though. I really don't like the cases available for the xmetals (not very practical). This particular lense is terrible though. I saw a lot of wierd reflections, etc. Not acceptable. I sent these back and got the titanium square wire with black polarized lenses. I'm much happier. Isn't one of the reasons they use titanium to make things lighter. Juliets were not light.

The Carbon frame is a nice darker color option. As with the Brown frame I think it does allow it to be used in more situations than a Polished or Plasma frame, in the sense that it isn't as flashy or an over the top type of finish. This frame option really rivals the Polished and Plasma in my opinion. It's fastly becoming one of my favorites.

I recently finally got my hands on a pair of these. I was searching for sometime and I must say I was not disappointed.

Lens: Emerald Slate Iridium

My first pair of Juliets and are just amazing. They look expensive and the emerald slate lenses just perform amazingly well. Dark enough for usability but also light enough for all round wear the lenses have a gorgeous green tint with a light purple undertone and are much better than the standard emerald lens which looks black from a distance. The hammer earstems are just perfect and grip the face like a limpet but the tips can hurt with extended wear. There is also a defect with the Ichiros in that one arm is always higher than the other but it doesn't appear to effect fit all that much. If the Ruby Juliets are the Ferrari of sunglasses, these are the Aston Martin DB9's.

Frame: X-Metal Juliet
Lens: Ruby

My second pair of X-Metals these have been on my wishlist for years and I finally managed to snag a pair of mint 1st Gen Rubies from a collector.

First impressions are just breathtaking. The lens are a gorgeous deep crimson with a hint of yellow at the edges. They seem to shimmer and, are you ready for this, they GLOW. Under low lighting these lenses appear to possess an almost supernatural eeriness. The quality of the glasses is as you would expect, the fit is flawless and the finish is exceptional. The blue tint is soothing but does tend to dull in anything but bright conditions but in regards to the attention you get, these are justifed in being the Holy Grail of Oakleys for many people. You get double takes and people just staring at the beauty of these lenses. My only reservation is that unless you wear black or red, these glasses can be a little too sporty looking and look odd in formal suits.

Stark contrast to my other pair of polished/emerald slate Ichiros, these "black on black" glasses have understated class and don't look out of place when worn to business functions. I drive 50,000km a year for business, and I won't go another kilometer without these polarized beauties.

My first pair of Juliets. The emerald slate is surprisingly very lightly tinted and a pleasure to look through. A little on the heavy side when you pick them up but seemingly weightless when worn. The hammer stems and polished frame provide the right amount of Terminator-inspired bling and looks every bit as expensive and exclusive as they should be.

Been hunting and saving for these for years. Finally got them last year off eBay in excellent condition. Completely amazed at the fit and look of these beauties. Don't have anything to add to the countless praises already left by the other 90 reviews. Although, since I wear them a lot, I wore out the washer on the left ear stem. There are some plastic "shards" sticking out of the hinge. Trying to bring myself to part with them to get them fixed. I mean, come on....these are the best Oakleys out there.

Cool story: a guy I met had the same prob. He went to the Spectrum O-store, and the guy there offered to do the maintenance AND replace his gen1 plasma frames with the gen2 ones for free. Pretty much got a brand new pair of Juliets for $80 (he got new polarized replacement lenses too).

I am addicted to the Juliets. I have multiple pairs of these beauties and I can't say anything that hasn't already been said. I strongly urge anyone who doesn't already have a Juliet, to pick one up. I can't say which combo is my favorite, but I can give you my top 5: Carbon/24k, X-Metal/Ruby, 1st Gen Plasma/Fire, Polished/G30, & a 7-way tie between the other ones I own! The newer generation fire lenses don't particulary impress me. I like the fact that there are a few signature series and they are the foundation of my collection. I aspire to own as many of them as possible. I just can't think of any other pair of Oakleys that can compete with the J's. Everyone who tries mine on loves them. The rising price is the only criticism I have, but we all have priorities! Perfect score despite the fact they will take a big chunk out of your paycheck.

In my opinion, the Juliet is the perfect pair of sunglasses. Everything from the orbitals with the intake ports to the hammer earstems on the polished frames, to the flex couplers allowing unparalleled fit making it the most comfortable pair of sunglasses I've ever worn.... Nothing can beat the Juliets. Overall I like the Polished frame the best because the Hammer earstems make for a tighter fit, and I think they look a thousand times cooler. 3 out of 4 of my Oakley glasses are Juliets, and here's hoping I'll have many more!

Probably one of the most sought after pairs of Juliets, and it's not hard to see why. They are gorgeous and unique, and fit almost anyone comfortably. The fist time I saw Juliets, I didn't think they were for me. I thought they were too much, but after I put them on, I fell in love with them. They aren't as cat eyed as the Penny, which is one reason I prefer them. While the ruby lens is beautiful, I don't like wearing it while I'm driving, because it seems to give a hazy blue look to everything, and I find myself distracted. Still, I give these glasses a 5 because they are simply...Oakley.

My first pair of Oakleys. I was looking to buy my first pair of sunglasses from Oakley but had little idea what kind of style I wanted. I was browsing around the site until I stumbled on the X-Metal line. Of all the X-Metals I found the Juliets the most attractive, but the steep price tag was making me a little hesistant to purchase them.

Went to an O store days later to actually try them on and my god they fit like a glove. I love how the Juliets hug my face that even when I shake my head, they stay firmly in place which is good for running or playing sports.

I was settled on the Juliets but had to choose a color. Ones that really stood out to me were Polished/Blue, Plasma/Ice, Plasma/Emerald. I decided for the Plasma/Ice combo but did not purchase the pair until weeks later. Finally decided to splurge for myself and bought these babies a few days before Christmas '04.

Wore them to school and all my friends noticed my new shades. Everything from the stunning ice blue lenses to the smooth curves of the orbitals and frame, my Juliets really stood out and I get compliments and stares from most places I go.

Now that I'm doing more Oakley research, I wish I got the X-Metal/Ruby combo (1st generation with the darker ruby lenses) when they were still offered but this pair will be my first and favorite.

Frame: Plasma
Lens: Ice Iriudium Polarized
Bought these brand new on eBay for $255.00 and they're worth every penny and then some. These are hands-down the best of ANYTHING I've ever bought, no exaggeration. I've been enamored with the Oakley brand since I was in High School (early 90's) when I bought my first pair of E-Wires. Those eventually broke in an unfortunate accident, and the Juliets are only the 2nd pair of Oakleys I've ever owned (almost 10 years later). I was about to buy some straight jackets, but I'm glad I forked over the extra dough for the X-metals.

The frame is a marvel of engineering. It's solid, slightly weighty when you hold them, but when you put them on, they're perfect. The Ice Iridium polarized lens is the best part. I've worned cheaper polarized sunglasses in the past, and these blow them out of the water. It's probably more superior than the Maui Jims I bought on my honeymoon 3 years ago.

Summed up, you can't do better than Oakley Juliets (okay, maybe the Romeo 2.0's come a close 2nd). Best of all, they're made in the USA!

Hello, I have a really rare Juliet! It's an Oakley Juliet, Plasma Frame with Fire Lens. The speciality is the lens! It's one of the first Fire Lenses Oakley made and they are more red than the others. Oakley people told me that the production of the Fire Lenses wasn't easy in the first time and so they can't produce the same colour for all Fire Lenses. I don't know if this is true but my Juliet with it's rubin red lenses say it is!

I love these glasses! My first pair actually had a defect I noticed when the outer part of both lenses started delaminating or flaking off. I called Oakley and returned them. I few days later I had them come back to me Fed-X. They replaced the lenses and polished the frames so they looked brand new again.

I actually wear other Oakley more than these. They are very heavy and I spend a lot of time around water. Let me tell you- these things sink fast! I was in Cancun last year when a wave ripped them off my dome and into the ocean (approx. 4' of water). I instantly started diving. After a couple minutes I was sure the current (very strong at the time) must have taken my Juliets... LUCKILY, a friend of mine showed up and on his first dive to check out the bottom showed up with my Juliets. I'll be forever greatful.

I wear them now on special occasions and keep them the in an X-metal vault most of the time. Clearly, the Rolex Presidents model of sunglasses!

Actually, I give this a 4.75 but since it's not a choice so I rounded it off. The reasoning is because of just giving it a simple name and the brown is very similar to Carbon.

Bought these originally with black iridium lenses - which did nothing to make the frames stand out. Ordered custom Ruby Iridium lenses with a darker tint - now these stand out like a Maybach in a parking lot. The X factor is definitely enhanced with these on. The best combination of X-metal color combos in my opinion. Also becoming rarer and rarer - which is good. If you can get this combo - I would definitely recommend going for it. Also the ruby iridium contrasts well with the carbon frame color - making the entire frame stand out.

The GREATEST sunglasses ever created. The Juliet model has to be the most recognizable frame ever. Anywhere I go, even if people don't know anything about Oakley, they immediately know that these are Juliets. I love the flex couplers at the bridge. I think that is a great innovation. Also, the contoured orbitals make you insantly fall in love. The intake ports catch people's eye all of the time, including my own. Even though there's only a couple of grams difference in weight, these feel much lighter than Romeos. The nosebombs are a big improvement over Romeo, too. Anyway, I don't think I have enough room to keep going, so I will recommend these to everyone. I would like to see a Carbon/Ruby combo and maybe a Juliet 2.0 in the future, to keep the tradition going.

Got my new Juliets and it feels oh so good. Carbon is an excellent finish and the fit is still so fantastic. A little rough going over the temple, but that was expected. The earstems look slimmer from the side and top where they meet the earsocks then my previous pair had. Even the black iridium lens isn't bothering me, but it's getting swapped out for a VR 28 Black real soon. I can't wait. Still and A+ Oakley. One of the best. However, it has no serial number and it only came with one extra pair of shocks (15s in pair and 25s in bag).

When it comes to Oakleys, whatever model you may like, you cannot go on ignoring the beautiful lady, the Juliets. A piece of art, that raps even the flattest Asian face! These are just amazing.

Perfect. The earstems were a bit tight on my head until I swapped out the temple shocks for a smaller size, after this they were just right.

The fact that they've been around for so long just goes to show that they're a timeless design!

For bright light, the black iridium lens are most soothing to the eyes and it's neat to be able to see through glare reflected on windows with polarized lens. My only regret is that I didn't discover the Juliets earlier and fork out the cash for every penny they're worth...mind you that the Oakley Valves, Splices and Mag Switch I own are great sunglasses too.

Lens: fire iridium

i got em used. a friend sold me his oakley juliet.

the greatest fit. ever. they're absolutely the best. it's obvious the painful research and development Oakley has gone through for these. the material. the 20 something pieces that put together to form this masterpiece. they look heavy, feels heavy when you hold them, but hug you at the face perfectly without being too heavy at all on your face. i can't really say anything bad about these sunglasses. pretty everything is good about juliet.

also, at first i thought it was kinda big on my face, but after trying out xmetal penny, i immediately realise that juliet looks so much better(penny are really for small faces). so i think amongst all xmetals, juliets can accomodate the most range of face shape.

about the fire iridium lenses, although they look very aggresive and turn out quite to be a head turner(wait till i get my hand on those rubies, lol), they're a little to yellowish to my liking on the tint looking from inside. the increased contrast is nice, but overall, they're still too dark for medium/low light environment. i prefer the ice iridium at any time.

i only own one right now, but it won't stop me getting more of these juliets with other frame variants(envious of u ppl who collects all of them juliets! lol!).

i just hope Oakley will keep releasing the x-metals.

Frame: TiO2
Lens: VR28

Had these baby for a month and love it! Though they are a bit heavy comparing to other glasses. Much of the weight is focus on your nose. Design and quality is flawless. Get these if you like to seeing everything like it's always dawn. Thinking of replacing them with black iridium or ice iridium lens. Don't be discourage from buying these glasses, I got mine new on ebay for $165.

Frame: PLASMA & CARBON
Lens: ICE & CLEAR RX

I'd say it would have to be the best pair of shades made by man. Nothing like a new pair when the fit tight. I own 2 pairs and planning to get more. Out of all my shades (10) they're still my favorite. Especially in RX b/c they have the best coverage with crazy raked back contours that they are essentially for anything. They look good for going out and yet stylish but grip well under the worst conditions while playing strenuous sports. BUY SOME, DO IT, DO IT NOW

Frame: Plasma
Lens: Ice Iridium

Used to go through sunglasses like crazy. Then in 2000 I decided to drop a bomb on the Juliet's (although these days I could probably get a much better deal on eBay), and never looked back. I've never had such comfortable, sturdy glasses. The style is pretty much perfect, after 4 years I love the look of them as much as when I first bought them.

The plasma frame is showing some black 'scuff' type discoloration and I've been told by Oakley that they will replace them under the lifetime warranty, so will have to do that when I can do without them for a couple of weeks.

Even with the frame metal discoloration I'm still giving 5 stars, and I'd give more if I could...

Frame: Plasma, X-Metal
Lens: Ice Iridium, Black Iridium

STARS: *****

I bought my Plasma/Ice Juliet's in Jan 2001 and they are still in great condition. The ear stems are a lot looser at the hinges and I had to replace the ear socks with the replacement kit Oakley sells. The lenses are still in great condition, but as stated further down the page, the '1st generation' (what're these, ipods?) plasma frames have this weird discoloration effect when they mix with dirt/sweat.

I bought my Xmetal/Black Juliet's off eBay because a) they were cheap and b) I love the Juliet design but I wanted something more subdued in appearance. The X-metal frame is an awesome colour and the black lenses will match any outfit.

I also bought a pair of Juliet's with Ruby lenses but I sold them to my friend as I didn't like the red colour of the lenses (definitely not the same colour as worn by James Marsden in X-men).

Great glasses though! Don't pay retail, scour eBay for a good deal.

Frame: Polished; X-Metal, Plasma, Ti02 and soon..Carbon
Lens: Fire,Ice polarized, VR28 blk, OO Blue, Emerald, G30, 24K, Titanium clear, Ruby, Fire/ Ice (1st Gen)

This is what Oakley is all about. True ARTiculation of Half Art/ Half Science! There is no other sunglasses out there that can even match the static energy compressed in this piece of metal (except the Penny's; Romeos or the XX) The Juliet is the Flagship of All Oakley sunglasses. Look How many I have and I haven't stop collecting them. I am totally moved by this piece of Adrenaline Alloy. There is absolutely No excuse NOT to get this masterpiece! P.S. Check out the formation of "O" on the earstems and at the bottom of the mainframe...also check out the "X" right on the nose piece and when the earstem is folded.

Frame: X Metal
Lens: Black Iridium

These sunglasses really are expensive but I assure you, the Oakley Juliet is well worth it. From the Titanium frame to the lenses, everything is perfect. In my opinion, this is probably the best sunglasses Oakley has produced.

Frame: X-Metal
Lens: Black Iridium
The best shades I have ever owned!! I bought these in Bermuda in 99 and have just had the lenses replaced by Oakley UK in 2004, that's not bad going. It's taken me 6 months to bring myself to part with them and send them off for repair. Replacement lenses are readily available on eBay (beware of fakes) get yourself a T6x50 screwdriver and your away. Black iridium lenses are hard to come by on eBay, that's why I sent them to Oakley. These are very special sunglasses indeed.

Frame: Carbon Juliet
Lens: Black Iridium

This is actually my absolute favorite color scheme for the Juliet's. The red really stands out, and carbon is my favorite frame color. I actually modified mine to have some custom Ruby lenses, but I love the standard default color scheme as well. I'm thinking of buying another pair of these just so I can have one with the regular scheme, and one with my ruby lenses :)

Frame: Carbon
Lens: VR50 Black Iridium

The Finito's are a real nice pair of shades. The carbon frame looks great with the VR50 Black lenses. The tint is quite light, so they wouldn't be ideal for a super bright day, but they are still great for a wide range of light conditions. The light Black Iridium mirroring over the brown VR50 tint gives the lenses a copper/bronze appearance at certain angles. The straight ear stems on this model fit my head better than the Hammers on the Polished Juliet's. Overall, a great product and worth the $200 I spent on them.

Frame: X-Metal, Carbon, Polished, Plasma
Lens: Ruby, Fire, 24k, Black, Ice

I've wanted Juliet's since the day they became available, even before I saw then in the X-men movie (I didn't even realize those were Juliet's at the time) I've never spent more then $10 on sunglasses before, but when I saw these, I started lusting after them for years. They are what got me (and probably most people) into Oakleys. If a person doesn't do a double take on you while wearing these glasses, they're either color blind or just blind. Ever since I've started to collect all the lenses and Frame options. Reason it gets a 4 instead of 5 is because of the ungodly and somewhat unjustified price, but otherwise these are the best things I have ever seen.

Frame: Plasma
Lens: Fire
The 1st generation plasma is not recommendable to persons who sweat a lot and are "acidic" as the color of the frame blemishes, unlike the 2nd gen of plasma which has a darker and more metallic color than the 1st gen. But the fire lens of the 1st gen plasma is better as they really take the fire color look unlike the 2nd gen which is more like 24k at a certain angle.

Frame: Plasma
Lens: Emerald

I didn't like any of the frame/lens combos that featured the Emerald lens when it first hit as a Sunglass Hut Exclusive until the Juliet. It seemed to fit so well with the Plasma Juliet frame. More so then the Fire or Ice did for me. Not to say I hadn't noticed Juliets before but this is the pair that woke me up. The Juliet is kinda rigid going on but sits so well at all 3 points. The lens shape was great, slimming it down from the Romeos size and playing it off the XX (Twenty) and A-Wire rounded rectangle. It's as if they are O-Matter and Titanium twins. I definitely liked the straight ear stem on these and the flex in the nose. Emerald Iridium was great. It was a bluer lens to look through with the coating being more gold at times and pale green. Not overpowering at all. A great wear until I traded over to Switch. I had a very low serial as well.

Frame: Polished
Lens: Ice Polarized

Best.
Glasses.
Ever.

I did not plan on buying Juliet's either, but I got a good deal of 40% off of a brand new pair from a store that was backing out of Oakley. Morons. Then I did a back flip and scratched them. So, I sent them in and had the blue lenses replaced with Ice Polarized. Second best color scheme, after Rubies, of course.

I baby these things like crazy. They are moderately comfortable, and they tend to let some light in around the edges, but they look so awesome that it is worth losing my peripheral vision. They do tend to stretch out at the bridge, and need to be sent in for a $20 tune up periodically. But hey, how else is Oakley going to stay in business?

Dethroned by A-wires?!?! That is one hell of a long shot.

Frame: Polished
Lens: Fire Polarized

I did not plan on adding Juliet's to my collection, but I got a great deal on eBay ($149) that was just too good to pass up. The polished frame is a work of art. Interesting that the polished frame is only available with the Romeo/XX style 'Hammer' ear stems while the other frame colors have straight ear stems. It takes a little while to get used to the flex couplers, but these definitely stay put. Fire Polarized has a greenish tint that can be a bit too bright for really sunny days, but it is a good all-around tint.

Frame: Ducati Carbon
Lens: Black Iridium
What can be said about the Juliets that hasn't already been said.
I love the carbon frame colour, as it tends to go with anything, the Black Iridium lens is also so universal. Combine this with the red Unobtanium and you have a stand out pair that is loud but doesn't scream. Perfect Juliet for any occasion.

Frame: Carbon/Titanium/Polished/TiO2
Lens: near all ;-)
Good glasses for a perfect dress. A bit heavy weight, but hey, it's X-Metal, what do you want to expect?
