Want to sell/trade Oakley Metal Plate (Rx) frames

Due to my lack of attention and poor planning, I am now the proud owner of two (2) pairs of matte black Oakley Metal Plate (prescription) frames. One set it at the optometrist getting filled with my prescription. The other set is in transit to my house schedule to arrive in the next couple of days. I'll get pictures up as soon as the in-transit frames arrive. Seriously, if they were each a different model, I'd probably just keep them both (but being identical, I have no need for them both.) So now I'll be stuck with some extra glasses/frames that I don't need.

The frames alone retail at my local [Oakley-authorized] optometrist shop for $309 (USD). Of course I don't plan to get that much out of them. So I'm open to all reasonable offers (nothing less than $150[-worth].)

Anyway, I figured I'd post here to see if anyone wants to buy/trade anything for them (I'm always open to having more lasers.) If there are no takers here after a few days, I'll just go the eBay/Amazon route.

Thanks

Here are the actual articles taken with my own camera:



And here are some other images (not my own, but borrowed from the merchant I purchased them from.)

You can get Oakleys for around $90 why would anyone pay $150 for just the frames without the lenses? :confused:

Oakley sells their entire product line at their website EXCEPT they don't sell their prescription frames there (and these are prescription frames.) One has to go through an "authorized dealer" (or questionable gray market dealer) to get them. As such, I'm sure Oakley is making a substantial profit from Rx frame transactions. Anyway ...

As stated before, they're prescription frames; they don't come prefabbed like regular sunglasses or reading glasses. As with any brand prescription frames, one has to provide his/her prescription for an optometrist to put lenses in.

As for this particular ["lensless"] model, by all means, show us where you can get them for $90.
