I bought my Asian Fit Oakley Crowbars from Pacific Boarder on W4th. In fact, I've bought all my Asian fitting goggles at Pac Boarder.

Whatever you do, don't buy bigger goggles thinking you can add foam to it. I bought Smith IO's and put my cut up Smith Prodigy foam on the nose bridge. It works, but it looks ugly as a mofo. I wasted $200 on it since I can't sell the goggles at that stage.

Try Spy Platoons. They're my current goggles I ride with now. Although not advertised as Asian fit, the frame and foam conforms to my Asian face really well. Crowbars were just too small for my love of fishbowl goggles.

I did not know that, nice!

Yes definitely not dropping 200 bucks let alone on goggles that don't even fit properly. Will check out pacific boarder again.

If whatever doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger.

I've seen asian fit oakleys stocked at Skylight Optical on Robson st. Check them out. If you ask nicely you may be able to negotiate.

Yup this shop has been around for a long time. Tons of staff in lab coats. Chat one up and see what they can do for you.

I've tried on asian fit oakleys here but didn't care for them. Definitely something you should try on before ordering.
