    Please help me identify these. - 1472753387351-491818542.jpg Please help me identify these. - 1472753442720-1392471624.jpg Hi there! I'm Paul, and I'm trying to find replacement ear socks for my beloved old Oakleys. I've had them for about 8 years and the local store was less than helpful. Thanks!

    That might be a tough one, since whiskers have been out of production for a while your only choice might be some aftermarket brands (Revant, Fuse, Posh). A lot of people don't recommend them since the quality of the lens is not nearly the same as Oakley. Some members of the forum cut lenses for different frames, you might want to try your luck with them, @Chris A Hardaway is the sensei in this matter, but I don't know if he has ever done whiskers.

    If you intend on using them a lot, the default best option is to use Oakley lenses.
    @Chris A Hardaway has done a small number of wire cuts for me, and I'm pretty confident he could cut for your Whiskers while he was shaving his.
    I'm thinking Chrome polarized for that Light frame.

    I'm actually trying to grow my whiskers out lol.
    I can do a whisker without issue if I have the frame buddy!
    Let me know if you are ready to put their original style oem looking lenses back in. Or perhaps something flashier!
