Well the frames go for around $200, which falls under my health insurance claim so I'd be basically getting them for free. Which other brands would have something similar? I don't know much about glasses, my current ones are from Momo, the racing brand. oh, you must be getting them at an optometrist office. Confirm the price of the lenses and dispensing fee. It may come out to more than your budget allows. I am not saying that they are bad frames, I am just saying that you can get other ones for a more competitive price. IMO, they are the similar quality of say Rayban or Persol. But if the style works for you, go for it. And if your insurance is paying for it, all the better!
