What type are these? aviators maybe?

Do you think these are aviators? If not, what type are they? They're ROCAWEAR R1010.

and what do you think of them? Are these blue lenses useless?

Thanks, hopefully someone replies

Thank you for the post. Yes, those are modified Aviators. I call them plastic aviators.

Besides looking cool it has been said that blue lenses are good for pilots and skiers because they enhance the contrast between objects that are white (snow and clouds) and other objects. Some even say that Blue lenses can damage your eyes because they do not filter blue light.
