Doing the roo!!!
Nov 19, 2008 6:37 AM
Came across the following glasses for sale on site for a decent price, but I can't really seem to match them up with the glasses listed on the site. As noted, they are listed as A Wire's, but i can't seem to find the frame/lense combo shown. Can anyone shed some light or confirm they are real?

Thanks,
oogie

That thing looks like bad news - at any price.

Almost everything is hard to make out in that picture. But the oakley script across the nosebridge looks to be a bit too large font. And who knows what those lenses are.

Step slowly away from the mystery eyewear....

I asked the seller also and he indicated that they are regular hinges. Would be quite a score if they were silver/+red iridium. Any writing on the arms i should be inquiring about?

Thanks again,

yeah... looks more like a Square Wire 2.0 than an A wire, hard to tell though ... maybe ask for more pictures. I've never seen +red iridium look that purple though, but again it could be the way the picture was taken.

Man, you folks rock. Thanks very much for all the replies. I asked the seller for a few more pics, but they are quite a bit worse than the one I posted. I asked about writing on the glasses and he indicated on the inside of one arm it has the numbers '1101' - does that help in anyway?

All signs seem to be leaning towards fake...

Please tell you didn't end up buying this - definitely a fake - I know cause I'm the sucker mentioned in the other thread that bought a similiar pair on eBay 2 weeks ago and received them earlier this week...

Trying to get my money back thru eBay/ Paypal...
