Oakley C Six Sunglasses - The Height of Sunglasses Technology?

Oakley has finally released the much anticipated carbon fibre frame sunglasses we've been hearing about. The model is called C Six. There is also a C Six aluminium.

Oakley C Six Aluminum Sunglasses

The obvious technological highlight of this pair is the carbon fibre. As far as I know, it is the first pair of sunglasses that have a frame completely made out of carbon fibre (although there is more than just that in the frame). The lenses are the standard high quality Oakley polarized lenses.

The price is beyond anything Oakley has ever done. At $4000 a pair, it is by far the most expensive pair of sports sunglasses in the world, though I don't imagine you'd be wearing them sporting. The aluminium version is a relatively cheap $1,500. Read more at the Oakley site:

Color me unimpressed. There's another pair of carbon fibre sunglasses on the market from Italia Independent that's not only more visually inspired and interesting, but 1/4 of the price. How utterly ridiculous.

I just checked out the Italia Independent shades. Not bad, but still very expensive. Still, $4000 in obviously beyond ridiculous, though I imagine they pumped a lot of research cash into this.
