Default Spy Optic Shades

Does anybody own spy optic shades? They look kind of cool. Here's the model I was thinking of buying:
http://www.spyoptic.com/product/421779/672052062135/_/

Only thing that bothers me is the price of $119. I know an ACO that has them and they fit the uniform pretty good.

Any opinions?

For $119 they better see through walls and 7 foot privacy fences. Otherwise my $5 Walmart glasses are just fine (and I won't get nearly as upset when they get lost or scratched).

Expensive to replace if you lose them or a dog gets hold of them and chews them up. Who cares if they go with the uniform, I can think of a lot of other things I would rather spend $119.00 on besides a bunch of sunglasses. Most of my ACO's go to the Dollar Stores to get their sunglasses, that way they aren't out a lot of money. Plus they don't wear them when they get out of the trucks.

The name is misleading; I was expecting them to have a tiny hidden camera, in which case $119 wouldn't be out of line. My sunglasses are prescription lensed, otherwise I wouldn't spend that much for glasses with no cam.

LOL but they are "bomb proof" How about for $74.95? I found some similar shades by the same company for half the price:

Maybe I can find a cheap knock of version of them somewhere else...

I used to by "brand" sunglasses when I was younger, I had a thing for Rayban "wayfarers" ( I think Jake & Elliot had something to do with it). Then after I got married and extra spending money became scarce I bought whatever knockoff looked like the wayfarers. I started going through pairs every other month when I started this job, (lost, broke or pilfered). When I started wearing prescription glasses I found out my vision benefits plan covered Photo Gray lenses, I haven't bought a pair of sunglasses for about ten years.
A couple of drawbacks to note are 1- they don't protect from ALL UV rays. 2 - if you have a different vision in each eye on lens may get darker than the other, and lastly they are pricey if your paying out of pocket.
