No I wouldnt actually.

I'm in law enforcement and not only does the optical quality and different lens color choices help me under different conditions (shooting range, field training, defensive tactics, driving) the frames are made to take a beating. Also, the wrap-around style of most Oakleys offer better protection from anything that might come at you from the side of your face.

I have Pradas, D&G, and polarized Burberry's for off duty and I wouldnt take them to the range. The ANSI Z87.1 rating on Oakley help me feel better when flying hot brass from a co-workers weapon comes my way or there's some kick back from shooting close to a wall or the ground.

There's a reason why Oakley is trusted as standard issue to most of our military branches and countless law enforcement agenices across the country. When they switch to Coach maybe i'll give those a try.
Cool story bro .. I drive at 200 mph on the freeway come get me
