Just bought another pair to replace the ones I lost. I like the fact that they fit my small head, the price is right, they're lightweight, shield my eyes well, and look pretty good. Also they come with a nice case and sleeve.

Pluses: Lightweight. Great protection/coverage. Style for miles. Adjustability (nose piece and temple pieces). Nice fit for smaller faces/heads. Good air flow (so far, no fogging on climbs). No Minuses yet. I haven't had these long, so I can't speak to their long-term durability. I use these for cycling. The Light Night Fototec lenses are perfect for me, as I often train in the evenings approaching and after sundown. No lens change-outs needed. The lens adapts to ambient light. The adjustability is very nice (at the three contact points), and I love the the rimless design; it's like not wearing glasses at all! Better peripheral vision (and protection), and when I'm riding in the drops or relatively aero, there's nothing (no frame) obscuring my vision as I look through the tops of the lens. I really like this a lot. Clarity and nothing in the way. The cleaning cloth/bag and hard case they come with are very nice, too. I replaced an older pair of Tifosis with these; had the old ones for years and they're still fine, but they're interfering with my helmet's fit/retention system. This Podium S model doesn't at all. And they look really cool into the bargain.

I have other Tifosi sunglasses and had hoped these would work. They are significantly narrower than my 2 other pair of Tifosi and thus, must go back.

I live in Texas and, despite the high temperatures, spend quite a bit of time outdoors. Good sunglasses are a must for me, as my eyes are very sensitive to light. At first I was a bit concerned with buying glasses without trying them first, but Zappos will always do it right by their customers, so I gave it a try. I have no regrets whatsoever. The lenses have a very comfortable dark gray shade, I find them ideal when it's very bright out there. I like to run long distances, sometimes 2 to 3 hours, and those frames are very comfortable. They are also incredibly light, and very importantly they look great. Finally, the case is large but I never use it so it doesn't bother me.

For me, they start out too dark which defeats the purpose of fototec. The polarized effect caused a distracting shimmer on the pavement although this does seem to indicate it was blocking more glare than normal glasses. Compared to the old Dolomites the fit is the same and the adjustable nose piece is welcome.

Love these! Love the fit, the color, and they're lightweight. The case us nice too, it fits in my purse -- most cases these days are way to bulky. As soon as I got them I wanted to order more just in case they stop selling them.

Love these glasses, but they should come with an extra nosepiece or a nosepiece that actually locks on well when lenses are interchangeable. What a pain to have to order (the nosepiece is a cheap $4.99, but shipping is about $7, so it adds up). Also, I've used mostly the red lenses for about 3 months, and they are already showing cracks. Add in a replacement lens and you almost have the price of a new pair of glasses. Thankfully, Tifosi glasses in general are much less expensive than other glasses, but it would still be nice to get more than 3 months out of them.

These are great glasses for style and comfort. They are light with a snug fit. The only drawback is that they are overpriced. They are an inexpensive pair of glasses masquerading as an expensive pair of glasses.

I ordered a pair and had to return them. They were too narrow for my head. They overall were a bit small. I don't have a large head by any means, I believe i wear a 7 1/8th hat.

I just purchased another pair of these glasses after losing my first pair. They are affordable and they work as well as the more expensive brands. I have worn them on 20 mile runs without any issues. These are perfect if you are looking for a smaller size frame.

Great glasses for playing golf or on the beach. good contrast resolution and eye protection. I like the wrap around style for greater protection. Zappos has been great in providing a quality service.

Excellent glasses for the money. My son uses these for bicycle racing and during triathlons and he loves them. Very comfortable and lite.

Like the glasses. They were about what I expected -- maybe a little large but not enough to worry about.

These glasses are great actually. I use them all the time, but I bought specifically for running. Affordable (as far as sunglasses go) and comfortable. Stay on well, just make sure you pay attention to the measurements. It has good coverage. It comes with a hard case, which is awesome. Never again shall my toddler destroy another pair of my much needed running glasses. It also comes with a soft case which is also designed as a wipe. Not top notch quality or anything, but I really have no complaints.

I am somewhat particular about my sunglasses. I purchased a pair of Oakleys, Ray Bans, and Sunclouds, along with these Tifosi shades. The Tifosi won the trial period. They look great, provide wonderful eye-area coverage, and don't hurt my skull. I removed the plastic no-slip grips fro the ear pieces, since I have super-fine hair that gets tangled in them. They are the best looking glasses out of the four I tried, work great, and were the most affordable. I will buy more Tifosi shades in the future.

Right out of the package, I rode a 100 mile bike ride. No tearing in my eyes and and the arms fit comfortably under my helmet, unlike other sunglasses I own. I have a smaller, narrow head and these glasses do not slip or slide. Used them on a couple of shorter runs and had no sliding down after 5 hours in hot weather. Would hightly recomend these glasses.

I have been wearing these for about 2 years while riding a road bicycle. Rides of 30 to 60 miles and never had a problem with them. Very comfortable even after 3 hours on a ride.

I wanted lenses that accommodated my large nose, high bridge, and that completely covered my eye sockets, the latter because I bought with rowing in mind and needed to avoid glare from the water. These lenses were one of the better pairs that fit my needs, although not perfectly, since it did not cover my eye sockets entirely, but it was more reasonably priced. Another pair that fit my needs, looked a bit cooler, and included polarization, was the Oakley TI Crosshair Polarized, but I felt I could not justify the cost.

Short Version: These are cute but poor construction and the swappable lenses never really are securely in place: Long Version: I didn't want to spend a lot more on a pair of Smiths, so I went for these. I think they are a very good looking style (for the genre of sports eyewear). Wanted a pink/yellow type of lens for cycling. Unlike Smith's where you put in the lenses, they lock in and you forget they are even swap-able - this Tifosi is terribly designed. The lens kind of sort of snaps in and is held by tension which can be easily relieved by putting the sunglasses widely over your head. Or hitting a large bump on the road. Lens - out! They are going back. I ordered the Smiths. Going cheap is always a waste of time.

The edges made these a little too severe-looking for me. Lightweight. Cool color. Very close, but had to return.

Pretty. Very lightweight. VERY SMALL. I neglected to check the fit range, it clearly says small to medium. They looked like child's glasses on my face. But otherwise cute. Had to return.
