Go try a bunch on before you decide. Some good rules of thumb are:

0. Make sure you can see out of them properly (good field of view, clean lens, right kind of lens(es) you need, no weird optical effects, etc)
1. Make sure it fits your face properly (that there aren't any gaps where the padding/gasketing touches your face
2. Make sure that it fits your nose properly (that WHEN PROPERLY SEATED ON YOUR FACE so that you have maximum vision/view, the notch at the bottom doesn't squeeze the bridge of your nose to where breathing is more difficult)
3. Make sure that they fit properly along with any other gear you will wear (helmet, mask, etc)
