Froome (thinking to himself): 'If I look interested in these then I can knock that red pair off the table into my bag'  4

Hope he's ditched those white jawbones. He looked like an insect with them on.

Never thought they would go to shops to pick them thought they would get them to come to Sky hq to get them personalised  7

I think it was like some kind of gimmicky shop where athletes went to get fre oakleys bins and play on apple mac computers while watching sharp television drinking vittel water and nespresso coffee whilst having their picture taken by a canon camera.

All very corporate.

Also kind of awkward that I'm going to order some of these:

I've got a pair and they are spot on. Had a pair of Jawbones previously but they were to cumbersome for me.

Mine are silver radar's with the blue lenses cant speak highly enough about them.

Raleigh, link me or email me a link to that store  3

It was a "pop up" shop, where NO money changed hands, just everyone from the Olympics popped in to get some freebies that weren't official sponsors. Just like the Beats by Dre rep's went round and handed everyone a pair with their countries flag on it  4

Ah. Slightly too much partying while wearing contacts a few years ago left me with protein infections and I can't bear to put them in anymore!

Only Bolle have the license to the technology to produce sports specs strong enough for me, but the exclusivity on the patent runs out at the end of this year, so I'm looking forward (hoping?) to seeing Oakley getting in on the act.

They do not have exactly the same pictures as another seller that I have put into my watch list because they are a bit cheaper  3 That I would never think of buying because they are knockoff........  19

Those photos look like the sort of place where you could get an Orange Mocha Frappuccino. But why is Morrissey helping Evan Davis to pick out sunglasses?

gkam84 - as i said i do NOT have 5 pairs from this seller and they really are not impossible to tell apart. the only issue if i were to have bought some would be 21 days delivery, but i wouldnt know this as i must re-iterate i havent bought many pairs and do not have radars set up with iridium, clear, yellow lenses just to pick out the draw depending on the conditions.

I also do not have a set of Jawbones and a set of Radars with 5 (count 'em) 5 changes of lenses including a polarized lens. Both sets did definitely not come with hard cases, bags, cloths, certainly not from this guy
