    I picked up the icons recently to use in a custom . . . .

    What was the story behind the 'Super F' Hijinx? - picsart1359034942137.jpg

    I know that the icon was originally released on a Polished White and a Polished Black frame as limited editions (Oakleynerd has both) - but what was the story behind the Super F?

    Is it related to a company - in a similar way to, for example, Matco Tools getting their own icons for their releases?
    Or is it related to a person? An athlete?

    Someone out there will know.

    And if so, come on, please tell the rest of us!
    :smile:

    Cheers,
    H.

    Thanks Nerd.

    It's quite amazing that it seems no-one really 100% knows or has a definitive answer at this point.

    Well done sir.

    I posted the question on Oakley's Facebook page too. Here is the response I got . . . .

    "The Freestyle Hijinx model was designed and distributed for the 2008 Freestyle.ch event in Zurich. This event brought together FMX, Skateboarding, Snowboarding, and Freeskiing. The Hijinx specifically was produced for Oakley athletes, staff, and VIP guests. I hope this helps. Thanks for your interest in Oakley."

    So there you have it.

    Case closed!

    I have information that part code 24-041 was for Hijinx - Polished Black - Grey, Freestyle CH, but I have seen no evidence it was officially released with a labelled box. The impression is it developed into a custom pair with the icons in question here.

    I suppose if they were just handing them out to staff/athletes/guests at an event, they didn't bother with boxes.

    Do these include a matching bag as well? Also what lenses are those? Almost looks like G30/Blue Iridium.

    I've never seen a 'Super F' microbag, so I'm not sure they exist.

    The lens is Shallow Blue Polarised.
    Fantastic when driving in the snow.
