    It's hard to say without seeing any pictures, but the fact that you are seeing white under the red sounds like it is fake. Also if they have any stickers on the lenses these are the biggest give aways of fake Oakley's. Real oakleys never have any stickers on the lenses, only laser etched words such as "polarized".

    Sound fake but we need pics...

    By the way, Oakley's these days do come with a sticker of a blue 'H' on them. It stands for hydrophobic and they defo aren't fake. Models like Radar, flak have this.

    Oh :eek: sorry about that, I always though the rule was that real ones don't have stickers, and fake ones do. Never knew that thanks!

    Its cool man, no problem.

    I work for Oakley so just helping out.

    Wouldn't want you buying a pair of Juliet's and thinking the were fake due to that 'H' sticker. :)

    upon buying items on ebay, you should look at the pictures of the item. never buy if they have no pics or the pics are from the web. and also buy from a reputable ebay seller that regularly sells oakley :D

    always remember if it seems to good to be true, and the guy has never sold anything before, its probably a scam. Sometimes you can catch a good deal, but always check the seller's feedback!
