    Anyone know where to purchase some Matrix eyewear? Yes I've bought into the commericalism and I want glasses like Morpheus or Neo. Anyone know a good place to get some?

    www.imposterwear.com sells them, but from what I've heard are pretty much crap. They break down and they're not that great at protecting the sun. The Sunglass Hut sold the more expensive(better) kind, but they're probably sold out because of the Reloaded hype that's currently taking place

    [​IMG] as long as you're aware of your own selling out, that's okay.

    Are these Oakley's?

    I forgot about the official ones, but they don't look accurate. I've seen screenshots of the ones sold at the sunglass hut compared to the other two and it looks a lot like the one Neo wears.

    I don't know about any of you guy's, but ever since the first film made an impresson on me, I feel like Neo everytime I put on ANY pair of sunglasses! [​IMG]

    Okay, okay so they don't really protect my eyes from the sun that well, but they look cool. And come on, admit it, isn't that what matters anyway, to look good for the ladies? [​IMG]

    I wonder how well the Morpheus ones clamp down on the bridge of your nose ... I can't imagine those would be very comfortable with how much they'd have to clamp in order to hold on.

    btw, have you checked out the pricetag on the Reloaded cell phone? [​IMG]

    Do a search on "Matrix sunglasses" on e-bay, and you'll see lots of options.

    On a side note, I just bought some wonderful sunglasses from Silhouette that look a lot like Neo's glasses. They are expensive, but the most comfortable sunglasses I've ever worn. The frames are titanium with the hingeless design, and they weigh about the same as 3 paperclips. You can find these on e-bay also.

    Good luck!

    Sorry, but the Morpheus glasses are retarded. The Neo version looks only okay, but $240? Nope.

    I think the glasses Niobe had on were fly, that was the about the only thing good about her character.
