How much are you willing to spend?

The lens color should be chosen according to your expected riding conditions (bright light, low light, flat light, night riding). Look at the Oakley site for a description of their lenses and their recommended uses. That should give you some background to help decide on the lens you'll want.

If you have issues with fogging look into the smith turbofan series worth every penny IMO

I don't have them, but I think your best bet is to get a pair of the Smith I/O goggles. They will come with two lenses that will have you covered.

Might want to hold out for the new Anon M1 ... they are $210 but include a second lens. Super fast magnetic lock for switching out.

I like my Oakley Crowbars more than any other goggle I've worn. Others I've liked, though not as much as the Crowbars, are Electric EG2, Anon Figment and Smith I/O.

There are like 3 dozen or so different kinds of goggles.

Smith, Electric, Dragon Anon, Scott, Bolle, Oakley, Spy, Von Zipper, and a few other less well known brands. Most brands have at least 3 different models, and among those many will have all sorts of different frame colors.

Try as many on as possible. When you find something you like, hit up their website to see what colors they offer

The Electric EG2's are back up on Whiskeymilitia.com for the next 30 minutes or so.

A good deal at $69.99

I'll second the recommendation for the Oakley Crowbars. That's what I have. FWIW, I use the High Intensity Persimmon lenses. They're really good for low and flat light and I'm not really sensitive to bright light so I've never had a problem there. I've never ridden with them at night, though.

The price range is pretty much around $150 unless you want to get fancy with the lenses.
