    Has Oakley ever brought back vintage stuff at a limited run? If so, how often do they do it?

    They should still have the molds right? I would like to think that Oakley saves them to perhaps release anniversary editions or something.

    I'd love to see the Splice, Mars, Romeo 1, and XX come back for a limited time.

    Hell I'd even go as far to say that I'd love to see them release them every holiday season like what they do for the other stuff.

    They do have the molds. The STPL release had a pair of Blades in the run.

    I wouldn't hold my breath for re-releases of most all the old **** though.

    Really? Could've fooled me. I guess his definition of forward-looking means taking old stuff and slightly tweaking it and calling it new. LOL

    The closest thing I can remember that Oakley actually re-released would be the Blades. Although they did redesign the hinge on the New Razor Blade.

    I guess you would have to count the frogskins too.

    I did see the XX show up on the Vault last year. I think they had spare parts and made a few to sell. They sold out within a day or so.

    Everytime the question is posted on Oakley's facebook page it is answered with the same reply, that they have no plans to re-release it.
