That pair, the FRANCE2, that I bought a year and a half ago are what I'm still wearing now. They are still in perfect condition. The XX2i glasses are not only super sturdy but the company includes an incredibly durable case with every pair which I know has been key in my glasses lasting so long.

Since I have two different pairs of the XX2i and I love them both, I thought I would rundown both for you guys.
|I am always taking my glasses on/off especially during ultras. Both pairs of XX2i's always stay put even when I bend my head over.

Both also come with polarized lenses, so important to reduce glare and protect your eyes.
|I wear them for other sporty activities too
And finally the most important part, how do they look? Secretly one reason I originally chose the FRANCE2 was because I thought they would look cooler than the USA1. Let me tell you as soon as I put them on the first time, I felt like an elite runner. I thought for sure that I would not like how the USA1 looked nearly as much. While it's definitely a different look, I really like how they look as well. When I wear them with my running gear, I feel like I look like a serious runner but when I wear them with regular clothes, I look cool and hip (well as much as possible for me). I like how versatile they are. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my FRANCE2 but I feel like they are SO sporty that I don't tend to wear them except for running or other outdoor sporty activities. They just don't go with everyday wear.
