    A local sports goods store had a a clearance sale and I thought I might make a steal on a pair of glasses or something else but of course thy had already moved the "good" inventory…! :-/

    So I asked them for a case that I could store my new Pit Bull in and they said they had only one left and they would give it to me for free -- it looked kinda feminine but I took it anyway to maybe give it to my girlfriend…

    The thing is, I have never seen this kind of case on any Oakley website, nor in any store to at any vendor, but then again I'm a total newbie so maybe some of you guys know what this is…?! The case is rather large, eggshell colored on the outside and covered with embossed logos and a rather untypical Oakley print on the lower right front, turquoise on the inside and has the same typography on the inside center of the cover:

    So, what do we have here…? :-o

    Really…?! Okay then…
    I thought it might have been some kind of limited edition because I searched the Oakley online store as well as Amazon and a few others and only found the one that's both plain white on the outside as well as the inside -- couldn't find one with that color combination of eggshell and turquoise…

    Anyway, thanks for the info…! :)

    Is it also common for them to come in different colors though…? As I said, I always only see the plain white one…It's not a big deal though, as a newbie I was just being curious, that's all…! :)

    BTW, do you know of any other official Oakley stores in Germany than the one in Berlin…? I was kinda surprised that there isn't one in Munich…

    Afaik those are only available as white textured.
    Others, like the Square O Hard Cases, are available in different colors and prints.

    Women's Soft Cases.

    Your next shop must be factory-pilots.de.
    I haven't been there, but I was told they have a wide selection of newer and older Oakley models.
    Your next O-Vault is in Zweibrücken (The Style Outlets).

    Yeah, that's why I was surprised to get one that's eggshell and turquoise -- as you can see in the pics above it doest match any of the cases I've seen so far…!
    But I guess it doesn't really matter, it was a nice freebie…

    Oh, those look nice, I might get one for my Pit Bull:! :)

    Interesting, looks like some kind of third party outlet store, I'll definitely check it out…!

    Thanks again, I just found out that there is one even closer, in Metzingen…! It's still almost 230 km but it might make for a nice road trip some day…

    Coincidentally I'll be driving up to Berlin for a few days on Thursday so I'll have a chance to visit the Oakley Store up there…! :)
    Unfortunately though, I'm too broke right now to actually buy something this time, but anyway…

    Have you been to one of the Oakley Stores in either Berlin or Hamburg yet…?

    I believe the older women's cases had the blue inside, the current and newer ones went to the all white

    No, I haven't been there. We will visit Covent Garden and Gunwharf Quays in the UK around Christmas.
    Until then everything else O ralated has to be purchased via the internet or some fellow forum members.

    Oh, sweet…! :)

    Although the prices in the UK might be even higher than here in Germany…!? Pretty much everything is way more expensive over there…
    But I'm sure you'll have a fun time anyway…! :)

    As I said, I will be in Berlin for a few days so I'll definitely check out the official Oakley Store there and maybe even buy something there, if I can -- we'll see…

    As for buying glasses online, I still have to compare the various frames (and lenses) and actually try them out in person until I know which ones actually fit me well, so that's not an option for me yet…

    Just curious, where in Germany are you located…? Does Bav stand for Bavaria…? So I guess we're neighbors then…!? ;)
    (I apologize in advance if that question is too personal, feel free to ignore it)

    Oh, and one last thing: I was trying to post in the European Oakley Forum Thread but it says "You have insufficient privileges to reply here." -- what's up with that…? :( Thanks…!
