SmithOptics Model?
 
I'm looking at the smithoptics goggles and there are so many different styles and models.. I don't know if these are just stylistic preferences, or if each type actually has its own different benefits? I mainly just freeride and jib, no powder (I'm on the east coast.). Any suggestions? Should I just get the goggles that look the best? Or does one kind have advantages over another?

IO or IO/X. If you have a regular to large face, go IO. If you have a smaller face go with the IO/X. Definitely the best goggle in the Smith lineup.

field of vision and ease of swapping lenses

I believe you meant the I/OS for smaller faces. The I/OX is the largest frame and the I/OS is the smallest.

they're the most expensive.. are there other models that have a good field of vision too?

You have that backwards. The io/x are the biggest goggles. Io are the mediums, then io/s are the smallest.

I mean, they're all gonna have decent FOV but the I/Os are definitely gonna have the best by far.
