    The picture is a Crater, not a Mars. Oakley did sell OEM Blue lenses and the rubbers are the same as the Juliets.

    Right (same as the thread title)

    To clarify: My question is does anyone have one of these OEM - meaning out of the box straight from Oakley direct or an authorized Oakley reseller that provided them as new, sealed, etc...?

    You could- back in the day- buy a pair from Oakley along with blue lenses and rubbers, You got the black lenses in a sleeve and the ice lenses installed. As noted, the blue Mars nose bombs support his claim.
    You can buy a black Mars and put a set of Ichiro rubbers on them but you wouldn't wind up with the correct nose bombs.
    I have a black pair that were ordered with ice blue lenses but not spec'd with the blue rubbers. I've since added Ichiro rubbers and a set of blue bombs from Q train.
    So I guess the answer is yes? Maybe?

    I was stating Crater because his auction lists it as Mars. sorry for the duplication.

    No, you could not buy Crater with Blue lenses from Oakley.

    But you could buy a pair of BI Mars/ Craters along with a pair of ice lenses and have them installed at HQ prior to shipment.

    I had heard that they were only available as replacement lenses for a short period of time. If true, what CarGuy says should have been possible. And CarGuy knows his stuff.

    I was hoping this would stay on the low. He only had the one picture up at first and it looked kinda fake so I asked if he could send a few more, and BOOM! new pictures and all kinds of bidders. They are rapidly approaching the limit for me. But DAMN I want it!
