    As far as the rubbers went, what was the more prevalent color that the different Ichiro XM's came in? I have seen some White, .. some light'ish Blue, & certainly that weird Green ... even Black in the Watch set.

    I hope I am asking this question the right way ...

    Polished/blue came with black rubber.
    Carbon/blue with blue.
    Polished/slate with blue.
    Polished/emerald slate with green.
    X-metal with black.
    Polished carbon/slate with white.

    The pair with the watch aren't actually one of the Ichiro release glasses!

    Agreed on Carrera's listing but to what I believe your question was, if your question was which is the most prevalent colorway I would say polished/emerald.
    Any time any day virtually you can pick up a pair of those comparatively reasonably where the rest are hit and miss.
    So emerald green rubbers I think is your answer, then blue for the polished/slate and carbon/blue.
    I'm pretty certain that they made more polished/emerald than polished/slate and carbon/blue combined.

    Wasn't there another thread recently not about Ichiros but about colored rubbers specifically, with complete sets of white being the rarest?

    For the Polished/Slate, which Blue might look better? Yeah, obviously I am just F'n around ...

    The blue is much closer to OEM blue than skyblue is, but it's still lighter than OEM. I made a post here with pics showing the difference between OEM and LG blue:

    Thank you very much, Sir ... Looks like I have everything I need to make a phony X-Squared Ichiro to just mess around with. Polished XS, Slate Iridums, & Linegear's Blue rubbers ... & an Ichiro bag from some pair or another ... New Oakley Micro Fiber Sunglasses Bag Ichiro 51 Mariners MLB Fan 7"x 3 75" Pouch | eBay

    Can make a Polished "Ducati" too, even gotta Ducati bag, ... or two. lol

    PS: Got the idea from someone else who was thinkin' of doing this a few months ago, but do not know if he ever did, though I think he was going to rock some legit Juliet White socks on his XS carbons ...
