    This are the lens

    Check the serial on here:

    The Oakley Review - Wiki (Serial_List)

    Strange though as it looks like a Plasma finish versus X-Metal finish.

    The XX lenses on the Oakley site are for the O-matter Twenty (XX) frames. You need the top link ones.

    Man, your nosebridge rubber looks loose.

    lol i know!!! thats why im sending this Oakley to X-man, i was almost ready to send to Oakley AGAIN to nose bridge tune up, but i think is better to try different tune up(x-man).

    Thanks for the lens correction, im trying to get new lenses, i love the ice blue and esmerald but seems that walleva are the only ones that carry it and some feedbacks are not good for that brand.

    Don't get the Walleva. I have a set. They are way thinner than the Oakley ones and move around in the orbitals. The color is nice and the clarity is good but the moving around really bothers me.

    I agree with BriP the OEM lenses are the best. I just bought a set of VL's for my Half Jacket 2.0's since Oakley don't offer a Blue (Ice) colored iridium lens and I dislike it more than the Walleva. Again the thickness is less but the iridium coating sucks. When I look thru the center of the lens it has a brownish color but if I move my eyes off center the color changes. This is really annoying especially since I only have to move my eyes a little and the color changes. The blue color is really nice though

    You might also want to check out Linegear. They are based in Japan and the lenses have good reviews. I'm going to customize my XX with new lenses and rubber pieces when they come out with their XX nosepieces.

    Thanks guys for all the feedback, right now i really want to fix the nose bridge, the sunglasses are just fine but i hate to fill that i will drop them when i see the floor. I didnt know that having a Oakley is a culture which makes me feel really happy, i will try to find my other 20 years Oakley that i have somewhere in my house.

    Still trying to see if i make some custom work with X-Man, like black finish on the nose bridge, or just keep them OEM. After 8+ years, the frame looks like new.

    This is the best advice, I've tried many different manufacturer's wares in the hopes of finding a good cheap lense I didnt mind to scratch. I'm a durability nut because I need things to be rugged as hell or feasibly replaceable. However I can tell you, NOTHING compares to Oakley optics, they've earned the right in my book to use the term "HDO". OEM all the way!

    If your pair still looks good you might rethink the custom route. XX prices are pretty good right now and I'm not sure how a custom job would affect the "value" of the pair.
