look like cheap Ray Ban knockoffs, not exactly digging the frame shape either because it KINDA looks like they're going for the Oakley Frogskin/Holbrook design but then something happened and the lenses rounded off....look like flea market sunglasses but HEY! I'm not in their R&D department.

cool that you're giving them away, i'll stick with my BrOakleys tho.

Most Ray Bans are around $130, the Polarized Ray Bans are around $200....even the Ray Ban Wayfarer's are pretty cheap considering they're "high-quality" sunglasses. I have a strong feeling these Detour sunglasses are just gonna be the same shit you see on the racks at Zumiez. I'd rather spend my money knowing i have quality protecting my eyes instead of something i can buy for 2 pairs for $15 at a flea market.
Like i said, it's cool you're giving them away for now, but once your marketing for them is done, how much are they gonna be? What protection do the lenses offer besides 15% UV protection (jk), etc. I'd like to know those details because if they were cheap i'd pick a pair up, i collect sunglasses for the most part and i'd like to ad a new brand to my collection.

Also, i don't wear Ray Bans, i wear Oakleys and ESS, i need something that will protect my eyes and i don't think Ray Ban has the strength i'm looking for.

The lenses are all UV400 protection which filter out 99-100% of UVA and UVB. Lens are also impact resistant (have all the tests they had to pass with the FDA)

As far as pricing the neon green model (screen printed logo, plastic hinges, silver mirror lens) are $17 each

The other models shown ( spring hinges, chrome emblem logo, custom frame colors, multiple lens color options, laser engraved logo on lens) are all $28 and polarized are $35

You add on the discount code we gave you guys and they range from $15- $31

All prices/ colorways are available at shop.detoursunglasses.com

I always thought Oakley and Ray Ban had the same protection because they are both owned by Luxottica, I've never read into it though.

nope, we did tests between Oakley, Rayban, Scott and Smith...Oakley was the only one that passed multiple shrapnel tests, none of the other companies passed at all. Luxottica is a distributor, Oakley makes all of their own shit, you should see their factory in California, it's insane.

join the omatter.com website if you can, it's cool as hell (i get all my shit for 50% off just for being a member)

The glasses themselves look really sick and I like the photography with the skyline in the background. I'm considering picking up a polarized pair after you do the giveaway(s) if I don't win. Are there going to be any lenses that are polarized but not "smoked" like they all are now. Like any mirror or etc. polarized? Also just curious, are they made in the US?

Right now just smoked polarized. They are not made in the US. As much as we would like to keep everything manufactured here it is just not really possible. For the amount of customization on them if we made them here we would have to jack the prices way up.
