    There are spots inside the nose piece which tend to be a dead give away..

    Check for icons on the lower jaws ...

    A proper case, bag, box and extra nose pads may hint to a legit pair ...

    I'm skeptical there. Most fakes come with 3 sets of lenses, and in that combo.

    Slim chance this one coincidentally was a real one with such lenses bundled. But definitely check inside the frames (remove the lenses) for the rubber pads inside.

    If it looks anything like this, likely fake as ****. Notice how they tried to advertise with the box and packaging. Cloth is fake. It's clearly not a LiveStrong edition either. The red lenses here don't resemble anything by Oakley. Usually the Jawbone only has one alternate lens set.

    Think of it this way if you're really unsure:

    You miss out on a pair, namely a Jawbone, it's still around to be picked up elsewhere.

    You pick up a fake, you missed out on a real one AND lost your money.

    All you need to do is open the jaw, take the lens out, and look at the screw that holds in the nosepiece. If it's flat nose they're fake. If it's a roundish rivet looking screw they should be real. Also look for style numbers and see if they match. Anything custom wouldn't have had a style number on the arm.

    I'll try to find my pics of the screws and post them.
