Old goggles worth replacing?

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
I've got a pair of Adidas Yodai goggles with 2 lenses that I bought about 10 years ago when I was last on the slopes before kids arrived which have been dug out of the loft as we're going away on the first family skiing holiday at Easter.

At the time the Yodai's were well regarded but 10 years in the roof has taken it's toll on the foam padding which has become partially unstuck from the frame. I've managed to stick the foam back on which should hold for a week's skiing but I'm wondering if they're worth replacing anyway? Given technology moves on and gets cheaper, are ~£100 goggles like these from a decade ago going to be any better than £20 goggles you can get today? If not I might as well just bite the bullet and get a replacement pair now but if I need to spend another £100+ on a new pair to significantly improve on the Yodai's then I'll stick with them and see how they hold up.

@Locoblade, of lenses still OK you should be fine with them.
If and when you buy new, I’ve had a couple of bargains from snowHeads for sale thread recently. snowHead

Cheers, lenses are in good nick so should be OK, perhaps I'll wait and see if any bargains catch my eye in the end of season sales that will hopefully kick off before we go at Easter

 Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

Sadly, I find that the "onward march" of goggle technology seems to be pretty much in line with the ageing of my eyeballs Sad
