    They were designed and prototyped in the USA but mass produced in China for production.

    Sorry.....here it is copied and pasted from the first post in that thread ;)




    Dead Horse #1 - Lux owns Oakley and they outsourced manufacture of frame components to China.
    Yes, we all wish Oakley remained independent and yes, it's good to support product made in the USA. But that's what happened so deal with it. And the China factory has high quality standards, claiming the move has reduced product quality is in your head. The lenses are still made in the US anyway. This is an enthusiasts forum, not a haters forum.

    Actually I'm having a really good day. :)

    It's all good.....didn't see anywhere in your first post or title where you asked are they fake. Only saw where you specifically said "what's that?"
