ISO Aviator sunglasses with red lenses

Where can I get aviator sunglasses with (actually) red lenses?

I used to have a great pair and, as sunglasses do, they departed from my life whichever way. Since, I have ordered "red" sunglasses on Amazon 3 times and searched everywhere else I know of with no luck.

Google insists that I either want red frames or that perhaps I really don't want red at all (you know how it goes). That is why I took it to the hive.

As for price, these should run on the cheap I would think (<$20?), but then again, they have become so rare, so lay it on me. Thanks

Response by poster: oh, just a note: the ones I've gotten from vendors on the three times I mentioned, they were purple, then orange-brown twice. When I check reviews for new items listed (and pictured!) as red sunglasses, other customers warn of the same thing.

These look pretty red.

These reviews suggest that these red glasses are indeed red. Are they among the ones you've tried?

Response by poster: contraption- it looks like we may have a winner there. reviews are split down the middle, so I don't know whether there's a pool of product that is only partially true to the description, but I'll stake six bucks on it I guess. :-/

I'm sure if you go to zenni optical you can get some aviators and customize the lens color for less than 20.

I priced out red tinted no scrip aviators from optical4less and came up with a $37 price. The advantage of getting them from an optical place would be better quality frames and your choice of lens material.
