STUPID REASONS

Oakley M Frame Laser Glasses
Military! Only!
Okay design, stupid sales pitch

You know what's really stupid?

Oakley M Laser Lenses. And the Assault boots too.

Well, oakay, they themselves aren't stupid. They look kinda cool. But the "advertising" stuff on the page is beyond stupidity:

"This represents the Research and Development for US soldier specific systems for advanced gear. Available only to active duty military at this time."

Yeah. Osama Bin Laden will take over the freakin' world should these Laser Lenses go on sale to the general public.

Terrorists will be bombing everyone if they ever get their grips on the assault boots.

I've mostly liked Oakley designed stuff in the past (the Over the Top sunglasses are quite the exception - they make you look like a goof), but I've never bought an Oakley product because they are priced to the stratosphere for no good reason other than "paying for the brand". And when I happened upon this marketing drivel today... sheesh. Get a reality check, Oakley!
