Asian Fit Eyewear Fit Info
• The bridge is narrowed and deepened, and longer pad mounts are used on certain frames to give you more room for adjustment.
• Clip-In Pad: Standard arm pads offer a limited amount of adjustment.
• Screw-In Pad: Articulates to conform nose point of contact. Snake pad arm curves give you more room for adjustment.
• Oakley's Asian Fit eyewear takes advantage of specially sized nose pads to help the frame sit higher on the face and stay comfortably in place.
• The ear stems are more rounded to better match the shape of the head and ensure a comfortably secure fit.
• Curvature across the front is reduced to prevent the frame from touching at the cheeks and temples.
• Oakley's CAD/CAM engineering allows them to design goggles with Asian Fit. A special version of their A Frame offers the comfort and fit of its own unique geometry.

The quality of the product is worth the price.I had ordered my first pair of frogskins back a few months ago. I was shocked at the build quality of the frames because it felt like very cheap plastic, and I had just spent 99 bucks! Any who I liked the way they looked. A few weeks ago I was on Moosejaw (of course), and I saw "Frogskins LX". I looked it up and found that they were a better frame quality; it was strange, but I decided to order another pair for 150 bucks! When I opened them I was so happy to feel the hard, smooth, glossy frame that felt so concrete. I would definitely recommend that anyone who is interested in Frogskins should go straight to the LX glasses instead of the originals. All in all, I was very pleased with my purchase.

Cooler alternative to Ray BansI have two pairs of the Frogskins. I bought an original pair years ago that was made completely from plastic and my brother ended up snapping off one of the stems while wearing them. After that I went back and forth on the sunglasses I wore until I saw Oakley came out with the new Frogskins LX which are sturdier and have metal hinges. They look great and are a cool alternative to the Ray Ban wayfarers that you see everyone wearing these days. I purchased the tortoise style shades and they look good on a casual Saturday morning or on the way to a business meeting in a suit. Great buy!
