    I know there's lots of folks here from around the world, but I notice whenever I list a pair of frogs on eBay that they inquiring buyers seem to be 80% out of the US. In AZ where I live our selection is also quite awful in terms of new releases. Am I right to say that the demand is greater Internationally compared to the US? Maybe it's just Arizona :(

    I'm fixing to trade one of my pairs for a purple fade with a guy from Peru soon, hopefully all goes smooth!

    Yes, that's been the case in my experience. Less than 10% of the Oakleys I've sold have sold to someone else in the UK. The overwhelming majority have been sold to Malaysia or Singapore, a few to Australia, a few to Japan, and the remainder within Europe or the US/Canada. Never had anyone from Peru though!

    you guys are right. the Frogs are hot stuff in Asia. and O-Stores are not found in every country, which limits the chances we have of getting stuff. so to the internet we turn to. =) we really don't have much choice. oh well.

    i think it's due to the retro-style that's currently the In-Thing in the region. the fakes is the main thing that irks me. sucks that majority comes out from my region. bummer.
