Today, television captured our hearts and attention when 33 miners were rescued from a mine collapse 69 days prior. As each one was rescued, they were clean shaven, wearing a "Gracias Senor" T-Shirt and these Oakley shades.

The shades were the Oakley Radar model, which protect against 100% of UVA, UVB, and UVC rays, as well as blue light up to 400 nm. The Radar model came in two different Black iridium lens shapes; the Path and the Range. Many of the media outlets have quoted the cost of the eyewear to be $150 and even $450, but the Oakley website retails the Radar model for $260.
