Got these from a trade
So the lenses and the icons from the staple brook got swapped out?
yeah I guess, didn't even noticed it til now, well the red icons does match the red accents on the frame so its not that bad
Not wanting to put a damper on your trade, but there are a few anomalies apart from the obvious (lenses and icons) that appear different. The
"STPL" lettering is down the right hand earstem without the word "oakley" beside it. The textured print also looks very rigid.
just saw this from the staple design website, looks like my pair except for the icons
i think what merc is pointing out is the dotted fade design on the arms, on my old pair it was a very gradual fade, not as abrupt. and if you could zoom in and compare the fonts of the "STPL" logo on your pair against the pair from the pic on the STPL website, i think it would help put your mind at ease. coz from the pics you uploaded the "STPL" lettering looks a tad off.
we're actually just trying to look out for fellow collectors, hoping you didn't end up with a pair like this..
so is it fake?
i'm guessing ya traded with a member from the forums? if that's the case, maybe ask him/her where the pair originated from? i'm leaning towards getting an official opinion from an Oakley store/rep if possible to deduce whether it's the real deal. could just be a lens and icon swap, who knows. but the graphics on the arms are throwing me off. that's just my personal opinion.
