I have a pair of sunglasses with interchangeable lenses. I use the yellow lenses for the trails and they work flawlessly. I would say find a pair with yellow lenses and you'll be satisfied as long as they fit well. You might be able to find a pair of Smith's.

I often use my Remington Optic Yellow shooting glasses. They only fog up if I stop to take a break. :D

They are only $10 a pair.

I use the Tifosi glasses with interchangeable lenses. Cost me less than $60, have 3 different set of lenses, and they only fog if I am stopped for a long time, as soon as I get the slightest breeze going they clear, and it sure beats getting crap off the tires from the folks in front me for sure.

I also use the safety glasses from any supply house / hardware store. MSA is a common brand. I prefer the tinted safety glasss to my Oakley's and I uses the clear for riding. I'm not sure if they offer a yellow tint if that is what you prefer.

Here are the best damn safety glasses that I have found on the market. I have been a CNC machinist for over 14 years and a heavy diesel mechanic before that and have put a LOT of different glasses on my face. I buy them 5 at a crack from this place and have been for several years. I used to get the Crews Klondike's, but now use the Dallas frames. Choice of lens is whatever you want.

Tifosi Dolomites here. Three lenses (dark, amber, clear) and they don't fog unless I am stopped for an extended period of time. I've wrecked and had them fly off and hit rocks and they survived. My only complaint is that they feel a little flimsy on my head. Tucking them inside my helmet strap takes care of that though. $40.

Here's another site for safety glasses. http://www.safetyglassesusa.com they have all types of styles and brands. It's easy to search, ex. go to safety glasses and select anti-fog and all makes and models show up. I have used this site without any problems. I do alot of metal fabrication and this is my go to site for glasses. Like was said in a previous post, if you find one you like, order multiple pairs at a time for a better deal.

+1 Tifosi's. Ok, I am a girl but these sunglasses rule. I have the kind you don't have to change the lenses because the tint changes with conditions (fototec). It really works-- I'll never go back to regular sunglasses or swapping lenses. My TIfosi's have the "Backcounty Orange" fototec lenses recommended for mountain biking. Watch the demo here. I caught mine on sale somewhere for <$50. Just choose a model with vented lenses and you'll never fog up.

I had wanted a pair of multi-lens for a while but hadn't gotten around to finding a pair at a reasonable price. One day as I was checking out at performance bike, they had these Procyon (house brand) glasses on sale for $35. I got them and I'm very happy with them. They came with a nice hard case that has pockets for each lens and a cleaning cloth (cheap I know but it was nice). For $35 the lens are surprisingly clear and the frames are strait and comfortable.

Check out the rest of the glasses there. Many of the glasses people have mentioned are on sale for under $50.

Thanks for the link.
I really miss my clear bifocal safety glasses.I had them for five years. Great help fixing flats, etc.I see they come in yellow.Wow! I used to pack my reading glasses on the trail.
I have 2 pair of bike shades with interchangeable lenses and find them kind of a pain.
Granted they are not the best quality. The worst is having to wipe them while riding or at a stop and the lens falls out.Yada,yada,yada.
At the end of the day,why spend a bunch on sunglasses.They break or get lost.
