Call it the cool-line bling.
You can make the weirdest dance moves ever performed and still look cool in the Smith Polarized Drake Sunglasses. Bounce imaginary balls or do the shopping cart, and everyone watching won't even notice how bizarre your moves are, because the Drakes' style memorizes everyone on the dance floor. Techlite polarized glass lenses are Smith's clearest glasses available, and they're scratch-resistant. not only do they eliminate glare from the strobe lights, but they also redirect reflections for a more comfortable wear. Smith made the Evolve frame out of partially eco-friendly materials. The blue mirror lenses work best on water, and the green mirror lenses look best on land.

Function well but...
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs large
- Size Bought: one size
I bought these to finally replace my old Oakley Jawbones, and I'm happy with their performance. Optically, the lenses are superb, and the polarization is great, perhaps even outperforming my pricey prescription sunglasses. They may also have a special coating on the inside, as sweat seems to roll off a little better than other glasses, and they are pretty good in the rain. The glasses also seem to provide decent ventilation despite the lack of vents, although this year we had a pretty cool summer along Chicago's Lake Michigan shore where I mostly ride, so your results may vary. At 6'4", I have a longer face, so I appreciate the fit -- they definitely provide nice coverage (see pics with my Bell Gage helmet in Size L). And the styling is good, too. So why not 5 stars?? Well, despite the functionality, I'm quite picky, and I immediately felt the frames looked rather cheap, particularly for this price point. The arms especially look cheap to me with a gloss finish that seem more like something from a dollar store, and flexing the frames causes audible creaking. [I'm not against glossy; I just don't feel they pulled it off here.] I have other sunglasses at <$50 that definitely have a nicer fit-and-finish than these, so these probably will not become a go-to fashion pair of glasses when off the bike, even though I'm a fan of the style, fit, and performance. In summary, very good on the bike, but for off the bike, it depends how picky you are.
Work for every face
