Alternatives to Ryders brand cycling sunglasses?
Ryders has some good sunglasses, with some great features that I really like... but for what I pay for I don't feel like their plastic frames are up to snuff. http://www.ryderseyewear.com
I'm looking for other sunglasses brands, cycling or general sporting.
Any recommendations for sunglasses brands?
Features I'm looking for:
-Adjustable rubber nose support and side grips!
-The least amount of peripheral vision blockage (ie frameless bottom & sides)
-Highend lenses (assortment of colours, filters, photochromatic, etc)
-Sturdy frames: This is where I felt Ryders shades were lacking a bit. Why not metal frames? Flexy titanium frames like some regular glasses have? Why are they always flimsy plastic? I suppose the idea is people should take care of them, but after daily usage over years, that plastic is gonna break somewhere, somehow. Then I have to spend another $100 every 3 years?
I had some Ryders cycling glasses years ago, they were great, but sold them. I forgot why. Just want to shop more before spending bucks on them again.

Try dark safety glasses. Cheap, reliable and come in many styles.
Oakley is an alternative, but so expensive... for what?
Another brand, Endura... any comments?
Aha Giro has a line now:
Any actual cycling models, or is it just sports fashion stuff?
