Hi to All,
is there anyone who knows more ?
I saw a picture and it looks awesome
I believe these were never officially released. Its unknown how many are around, if any.
Ok thanks for reply.
I saw that the X Man can " transform "a normal Penny into TIO2...
Several people have been hunting for this pair for years and the general consensus is that they were probably prototyped but never released. The TiO2 penny has never been spotted with any lens color to my knowledge, and there are even people within Oakley that have said they aren't aware of any prototypes of that colorway either.
The only real option is a custom finish to get that look. Chances are even if a prototype did or does exist its in a collection of someone who won't speak up about it, let alone sell it. The only hope for any solid confirmation probably lies with Jim, and he's somewhere enjoying retirement out of reach of the community. The other option is probably something along the lines of the purple Juliets where members stumble upon them and buy them hoping they are genuine, but even those were eventually confirmed by Jim to be authentic and the only ones in existence.
