    I've owned them for around 4 years and they have just been sitting in my glove box for the past year with no earsocks not being used. I really love them and want to continue using them especially now that summer is here. I own a couple other pairs but would like to restore this one. I've done research online and haven't found any information on replacements. I called Oakley about a year ago and they said their out of commission now and they couldn't ship me any otherwise would. I heard the earsocks might be "the wire" brand to buy for replacements? I also heard that crosshairs might work but I don't know about the crosshair earsocks as I own a pair of crosshair 2.0's and I don't know if their the exact match.

    Can anyone tell me what it is I need to look for or link me? I'm fine with purchasing the new earsocks I just want to purchase them online asap. Thanks again guys.

    Check eBay ive seen them fairly regularly in there though at a steep price.

    I recently got a few pair from Oakley when I set in a pair of inmates for some "work". They sold them to me for $6/pair

    There aren't any currently available on eBay or Amazon that I have found. I don't know what set of Oakley over the counter repair kits are called that fit the inmates otherwise I would just pick a kit up. Any help on the name?

    Not that I'm aware of. Keep an eye on eBay they seem to pop up a lot. I am always looking for new inmates on there thats how i see them. Have you tried calling Oakley warranty?

    I tried calling some Oakley number a year ago and the man was very nice and tried helping however said the earsocks are out of production and thus whatever warranty I had didn't cover the cost of getting replacements. I don't remember what he said exactly but that was the gist. I don't have my receipt or anything though it's been so long and their closed till Tuesday. I was looking to at least know what I was looking for by then

    Bringing this one back from the dead....

    I just picked up a pair of Inmates and the earsocks are trashed...I am pretty sure Oakley is all out of them too from what I've read...

    Anyone ever use a substitute earsock, maybe from a wire frame?
