    I'm curious as to why a lot of the newer Oakley releases are targeting skaters with frogskins. I'm not a skater myself so I'm not familiar with the culture or the history behind frogs and skates. Is there a reason why skaters don't dig other styles?

    Frogskins are the cheapest?
    Skaters don't have much cash to burn cause they like to burn it on skateboards?
    Skaters don't know true style when they see it?


    Feel free to make up some more. ;)

    Frogs when they first re-released were really targeted to skate/lifestyle shops to help create buzz and demand. It's just sort of stayed that way since.
