    Got some gen 1 E wires on their way to me which I think are brushed/VR28 in good condition except the ear socks which have definitely seen better days.

    With the E wires being re-released I have enquired with Oakley Europe via email to see if there will be fresh availability of rubber parts.

    I haven't heard back yet but was wondering if there is any alternative source for these?

    Another option would be if another ear sock from a different wire fits.

    Any ideas/help much appreciated! Can't wait till they arrived, always liked the E wire since I saw them back in the 90's

    I think that's exactly what I need!

    Do you have a price bearing in mind that I am based in the uk?

    You can pm me if you prefer.

    Thanks!

    Confirmed! I saw a pic of you wearing the same model when I searched e wire on here. The 1st e wire with the flat hammer stems is the model they are. Should arrive tomorrow fingers crossed.

    Would really like some t wires at some point.

    Think you need to post a few more messages first.

    Good to read that you had success on getting a rubber kit! I'm facing the same problem, now!
    Does anyone can help on getting some earsocks & maybe nosepieces too?
