    O.K. here's the deal ...

    I bought a pair of polished white with ruby frogs for my niece for Christmas.

    She's 21 and is away at college.

    I have a pair of like new anti-freeze frogs which I never wear ... they just sit in my case.

    So I was thinking of giving her the anti-freeze instead and taking the white ones for me.

    I'll wear the white ones, but the anti-freeze are "too loud," which is why I hardly wore them.

    HOWEVER, as most of you know, the white one are available all over the place for about 100 bucks (re-released recently.)

    The anti-freeze are more collectible and as far as I know, Oakley has no plans to re-release them, so they may go up in value over time.

    So keep the ones I'd wear, or keep the ones that will be worth $4,999.00 one day?

    ha!

    I would give her the white. I would actually probably give her the white regardless of the colectability of either... unless shes actually into oakleys, i think she will appreciate them more

    I gave a close friend of mine a pair of Livestrong Fuel Cell's as a gift. Though they aren't anything super special, he didn't seem to appreciate them. They were scratched and scuffed about 2 weeks later.

    Yeah, if you won't don't wear the Anti-freeze what makes you think she will? Give her the white, no question about it.
