Often, when you are shopping for sunglasses, you'll encounter the term "replica," especially when it refers to designer frames. Make sure you walk the other way when encountering these "ripoff" frames. They are designed to look like more expensive, brand name frames and sunglasses, but they are really just cheap imitations. Often they use inferior materials that do not protect your eyes as they should. Watch out for replicas, and look for quality merchants who back up their merchandise with guarantees.
