Well I stopped by the Oakley Store in La Jolla, CA just because I had never been there before and lo and behold I walked out with a pair of X Squared's ... my first and likely only pair. But there was great incentive because the store is currently offering Bounce Back bucks (earn $10 for every $50 spent) ... so I now have a great collectors item and another $80 to spend next month. But not all is good news ... I quickly realized what I had purchased -- the last in the store and seemingly the last in San Diego -- is slightly defective because the ear stems are not balanced equally. See below: The store suggested I call Customer Care ... which I did. And so far not firm answer because apparently whatever machine they used to have to fix this, only works with the Juliet's. And they may or may not have a frame to swap out with this one. So we'll wait and see. It fits my face okay, although I can feel that it is slightly off ... I'll update you all as I get updates.
