I bought these as a replacement for a pair of Speedo Vanquisher 2.0 Plus Mirrored Goggles. First off, these Speed Sockets are a lower profile goggle so they don't project out from your face as much. Secondly, the shape of the goggles is more streamlined, and wraps around my face much better.
I bought the black and gold model of this goggle, and in comparison to the previous mentioned Vanquisher model, the amount of light blocked out by the mirroring on this goggle is a little bit less than on the vanquishers. I would not call this a flaw since I am mainly an indoor swimmer. (I still like the mirroring because its cool though, and then I can use the goggles outside as well)
The strap and the plastic clip on the back that holds the strap are built more sturdily than on the vanquisher model and I do not have to worry about it breaking. I have not tried changing the nose piece as I have no need to, but it looks like you could do it without breaking the goggles...
I really do like these goggles. As a bit of a novice user of goggles, I went to read reviews of a bunch of these before purchasing a set, and I was certainly not disappointed.
Perhaps I misread the directions, but the goggles seem to not have a good amount of anti-fogging properties to them. They worked really great for a while, but in the last month or so, they have started to fog up pretty badly whenever I swim. Up until that point, I followed the instructions of making sure not to touch the inside of the lenses with my fingers, so I'm not sure what happened. A bit of a minor annoyance, really, but I would think this would be a bigger issue if you were swimming in a more competitive setting.
Also, as a novice user, I didn't have the proper bridge on the goggles at first, and I had a heck of a time trying to get them not to leak. So if you're having this issue, definitely pop off your bridge and try a new one out! I'm a complete newbie with swimming and...
I've been swimming competitively for years and have used vanquisher's (or 2.0) pretty much exclusively. I am happy I found these before the end of my college career and have been very pleased with everything about them.
As other comments have said, these goggles have a much lower profile than the vanquishers I've used in the past. They honestly just feel like they're closer to your face and more in line with your profile. They are similar to Arena's Tracks goggles imo, which I also really liked. They feel more secure and better fitting than any pair of goggles I've used in recent memory. The strap may affect this as well. I've found that the original strap is quite effective on it's own where I always felt that using bungies worked better with vanquishers. This could also just be personal preference but I do really like them. I haven't had any issues with the nose piece and believe I left the one that was originally on them.
