I tried on every pair of performance sunglasses I could, expecting to buy Oakley's. Oakley's tend to be overstyled, trendy, and not actually comfortable on my face. The Parallel Max's are perfect--true performance glasses. They've been with me on hot (6 mile, 100 degree) mid-summer Texas hikes, long runs, countless mountain bike rides, backpacking trips, all day drives, and even look good with a suit and tie. I lost my first pair on a backpacking trip and immediately replaced them. The fit is perfect, they never move (even when sweaty), the colors look clear and brilliant. I highly recommend!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by solid Amazing quality
I have several Smith sunglasses. They range from safety glasses to the expensive dating frames. I recently received the Parallel Max. They turned out better then expected. I was amazed at the quality of the frames. I was expecting a light fragile frame. They were far from it. The lenses slipped out easily and the new ones went in flawless. I used the rose color for cocktails the night I got them and worked great. I would highly recommend these lenses for anyone who is active and wants a well made product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tyler If you want a sunglass that is Legendary status, YOU FOUND IT!!
Well how do I even state this? These sunglasses, make all others seem unworthy. My whole family has purchased a pair of these sweet pieces of heaven. I have waited my entire life for a pair of sunglasses that make me the sports action hero I always wanted to be. I can now run around in my tactical gear with my air-soft guns and pelt invisible enemies right between their eyes. It's like something out of a dream! If you are looking for a slick pair of shades to make all the ladies/men faint, you have found the holy grail of pick up lines. "Hey baby check out my Smith's..." *she turns around and gasps in awe of the pure awesome you have attached to your face... "Can I have your number hot thang?" *she writes her number on a nearby napkin and then proceeds to pass out "thanks girl... I'll call you later" walks off with the thought of explosions in the distance.... This is a true account of what happened the 1st day I had my Smith Parallel Max's. So enjoy these beauties, because you just became a Legend!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Thawkeye Highly Recommended for all activities
I wear Smith and only Smith sunglasses. Constantly being exposed to every element imaginable working in the outdoors I rely heavily on protecting my eyes from sun, wind, and glare. After losing my other pair, I instantly bought the Parallel Max again after the cover they provide and the lightness of them. I love the polarized lenses and the fact that Smith warranties are outstanding is a huge selling point. I recommend Smith products to all of my buddies.
