Chris,

check out Amazon. I purchased a pair of Rayzor (Yellow Lens)cycling glasses a few weeks back. The recommended price £49:95. Amazon's price, less than £15 + postage. Really pleased with them as they are so light and give proper wrap around protection.

Chris, It depends what you want to spend and how bothered you are about branding. I have a pair with three lens colours (black, yellow and clear) which I bought from Aldi for £2.99!!
Been using them for about a year with no problems. If you have a store near you, there is another bike accessory sale starting on Sunday. I'm looking to get some more!
The only thing with the glasses is that they tend to mist up when I stop moving. I don't know if more expensive ones do the same or not.

I also bought the Aldi ones and once Id took the plastic stip from behind them, as my nose was to fat (lol) I could get them on, and they have been brilliant. I have 4 pairs which I love, the best ones i have bought were from gooutdoors, £18 they fit nice and even have air holes in the side to let the air in and not steam up. they did only come with one coloured lens though

I angree with the comments regarding the Aldi glasses. I have a few pairs myself, one for cycling, one for wearing as sunny days and when there is an offer ususally buy a new pair and use the existing sun glasses for cycling.

At that price, if you loose them or break them then you have not lost anything and they perform well in my opinion.
