Question Are Goggles A Fashion Statement?

Hey guys first thread here so here it goes.....I have been looking like crazy to find a new pair of goggles as last season I sold mine on as they were getting foggy inside, a secondhand pair of Anon's and now the search is on and the more I look the more I think yes they are fashionable bright colours etc.. that is my take in it. Still no joy finding them though. So far I have narrowed it down to a pair of cool looking (well I think so) Spy goggles or Electric or Anon. I can spend about $80NZ as I am only skiing(sorry snowboard) about 4 days ma,x a year which really sucks but as I live so far away well it's a non-stop drive for about 5 and a half hours and it's really expensive travelling accommodation etc... so No need to spend hundreds. What are your thoughts?

Daza.

Yeah I kinda stuffed up that question eh? obviously they are a necessary thank God. But what I was getting at is they are all so trendy new colours patterns etc... like boards I guess which are the same in that respect.

Anyway looking seriously at a nice pair of Spy goggles can I post a link to them here so you guys can say yeah good or na give them a miss? cheers mate.

Pretty much every piece of gear that is visible is a 'fashion statement.' Go with whatever matches your taste, so long as you're not sacrificing functionality. The coolest looking goggles in the world will still look stupid when you faceplant because it's fogging up on you.

It can be fashion statement if you can pull it off with skills or steeze. If you are falling on your ass rocking $1k plus gears, people are gonna laugh.
