    I'm trying to identify (for purchase) a pair of wire frame Oakleys. The distinctive feature is that the nose bridge has the horns (points) facing forward. Anyone know what model this might be?

    Welcome to the forum.



    A photo really goes a long way with assisting you.


    Or you can click on this link and search for them yourself. O-Review

    I guess I'm wrong in thinking forums are fore people who might know rather than people telling me they don't know.

    Not exactly. There is so much knowledge here that it's pretty much well known people here know more about Oakley than Oakley does themselves. :)

    Just normally when someone would like a frame identification they have a photo and not just a description of the nose bridge.

    Sorry again. Maybe someone else will try?

    Frank is right...You've given us 2 qualifiers one of which literally makes no sense...horns?
    You're going to get a lot more help with a photo or a more detailed description...

    Maybe try to answer these to the best of your abilities and we can start narrowing it down to a specific frame:
    Is it an older frame, or a newer frame?
    Is it from the X-Metal line ("fatter" metal) or thinner "thin wire like" metal?
    Are the lenses round, more blocky, or oval?
    Did the frame have a specific color?
    Did the lenses have a specific color?
    Is the nose bridge separate from the orbitals are the orbitals and nose bridge one piece?

    The two frames that pop into my head with the "horns" description is the OTT
    . What model is this? - 5499142066_4b8d83e077-jpg.94831.jpg

    Or some variation of X-Metals
    Juliets:
    What model is this? - oakley-juliet-04152-2.jpg
    Or XX:
    What model is this? - 6907786567_fbb4a39720.jpg
    Or maybe a penny...smaller than the above two.

    Could you even describe the frame a little more? Lens shapes?

    You're really looking for the proverbial pin in the haystack ...

    If I had to SWAG (a la @kronin323 ) ... I'd say OO ...?

    OO Jordans, the "horny" part would be the hinges, not the nosebridge...

    Ok dude, do google image searches for these strings:

    Oakley Mars
    Oakley Juliet
    Oakley Penny
    Oakley XX
    Oakley Romeo 2.0
    Oakley Mag Switch

    If none of those are the pair you're looking for, you'll have to provide a better description. What you gave is not enough for anyone to pin it down to a specific model.
