    Apologies if this is a stupid question, but what makes Shoe One such a big deal, other than the fact that it's a cool-looking shoe? I think I remember reading somewhere that Jim considered Shoe One to be one of Oakley's greatest achievements (I could be wrong about that -- I'm going from memory), but I can't find ANY info about it on Google. Can anyone fill me in?

    Jim posted about it here somewhere. It was the biggest engineering/design project they did I believe. One of Jim's top projects with the company... and a total flop.

    Carbon fiber, kevlar, superbike-inspired tread, etc. There is a thread as Rustpot said from Jim himself about his contention that no Oakley collection is complete without a (L)NIB Shoe One.

    I reckon if re released, they may take off. But saying that, if that happen, the people who have these in the collection wouldn't be happy.

    I disagree----If they came out again, that would make the ORIGINAL 1st Gens go up in value tremendously. At this point, no one hardly even knows they exist. Maybe I am wrong though.....

    There was also a graphite / silver pair along with the yellow and black. Just the three (3) total in the high tops and there was a white one in the lows, totaling four (4) pairs.

    Dr. Chop, I believe, has a few of these for sale that have been signed by the big JJ himself! Check out his website for more info!
