    its a "New Frogskins"... it was introduced for in the late nineties, then was dropped, wasn't a success, I guess people still prefer the original. Goes to prove that "why mess with a classic?"

    Those replacement frogskins were one of the worst redesigns in Oakley history in my opinion. It may be hard to imagine now but the frogskins and any wayfarer copies were losing popularity in the 1990s. Oakley wanted a replacement and what you got was the "new" frogskins. they were known for wrap sunglasses at the time so they copped similar designs from other models which is pretty much they same thing they are doing nowadays with the antix, hijinx, fuel cell, and batwolf. I am glad the old frogskins are back.

    yeah it was a failed attempt to reinvent the frogs. you don't seem many of these around anymore.

    First time I've seen an actual picture of those "New Frogskins." I wonder what they'll end up selling for.
