Also, I feel like I need to point out that these are not the high-end sunglasses you buy on Callawaygolf.com and almost certainly nothing more than a 3rd party licensing deal. Easiest way to tell is that if you go to Callaway's official website, these sunglasses aren't anywhere on there. Probably never were, either.

Some company (possibly EyeDictive themselves) went to Callaway and offered up some money if they could slap the brand/logo on some cheap sunglasses and resell them to the general public. Usually it's in the realm of 5-15%, but there's also the possibility of minimum payouts, one-time licensing fees, etc. Pretty lucrative for the company who gets to sell $8 sunglasses for $20, and reasonably so for the name brand in question. Only real loser is the brand's reputation if this is done too much, and of course the customer who just paid $20 for a pair of $8 sunglasses.

This is extremely common, and easy to miss if you don't know to look out for it. Tony Hawk bicycles at Dick's or Walmart? Licensing deal. Disney Princess bike helmet? Licensing deal. Columbia Sportswear performance underwear? Licensing deal. [businesswire.com]

And yup, it happens all the time in sunglasses, too. Those Hugo Boss sunglasses you just bought? 3rd party licensing deal [fashionnetwork.com]. Nike Sunglasses? Converse sunglasses? Both are licensing deal [wwd.com]. Adidas? Licensing deal [mr-mag.com].

So yeah, keep in mind that the brand name for anything that doesn't fit with a company's core area of expertise is quite possibly nothing more than a licensing deal of dubious quality. Now, this isn't the same as the company/brand contracting out it's manufacturing. Obviously companies have to manufacture their goods somewhere, and many will actually contract out with a factory or company that specializes in that field. The difference is that one is sold by the brand, and the other is sold by the 3rd party licensee. So the sunglasses *on* Callaway's website? Sold by Callaway (probably). Sunglasses sold in a golf shop next to Callaway golf clubs and Callaway shirts? Sold by Callaway (probably). Random "Callaway" sunglasses sold on a 3rd party website like EyeDictive with zero branding on the page, and no links back to Callaway's actual website, and not showing up on Callaway's website either? DEFINITELY SOLD BY A 3RD PARTY AS PART OF A LICENSING DEAL!!!

The source for all of this? I used to do it! I worked for a company that sold products that were licensed by Columbia Sportswear, K2, Harley Davidson, The North Face, and more. Those companies had little input as to what we made (other than making sure that the logo was correct and displayed prominently), and we'd make and sell products ourselves to the various retailers. We sold a ton of "branded" merchandise, the brands made a bunch of money, and nobody knew that the product wasn't actually made by the brands in question.

So yeah, $20 may or may not be a good price for "Callaway" sunglasses, but they're certainly a 3rd party licensing deal and you should pay close attention to the quality of the sunglasses when they arrive. Just a heads-up.
The polarization layer/coating on my Callaways began coming off after a few months

For price worth It since polarized VS. Amazon knock off pieces. These are my "I don't care if I loose" type VS. My Oakley's I hate to break or loose.

I've had great luck with Amazon knock off sunglasses. Definitely better than my cheap EyeDictive ones. They're still polarized and are way sturdier than the Hugo ones I got from ED, and were like 1/2 the price, too.

I wonder what their warranty looks like? Seems like even a half decent one (better than 90 days...) might cover this issue. Found this site: https://www.callawaygolf.com/help-warranty.html, but the very last sentence says it doesn't apply to accessories, so... wonder if calling the # might help (800-588-9836). Debating myself whether $20 is worth the gamble.

If you're worried about the warranty, definitely call to see if EyeDictive is an authorized retailer and whether the warranty from Callaway applies to these. I'm guessing, no.

Sunglasses are mostly about brand recognition. The most expensive general brands cost very little more than the cheaper brands.

You are a gentleman and a scholar.

Is there to your knowledge a legit, non-scammy online sunglasses discount retailer?
