Real, Quality...when Sold by Amazon
on May 24, 2015
Hopefully I can help someone who may be worrying if they've received a fake pair or not. (I purchased my pair directly from Amazon, not a 3rd party seller).
Given some of the reviews on here, I was initially scared whether I had purchased fakes or not. This isn't my first pair of Oakleys, so I knew what to look for (my previous oakleys are all in-store purchases). The box checked out, the case checked out, warranty is there; great. I pulled out the shades themselves and I found a large "P" sticker on the left lens...uh oh. Where's my "MADE IN USA" logo? uh oh again. Everything else checked out. The hinges were snappy, serial information on the left arm, side logos seemed fine.
I googled around, and everything I could find said that "Oakley will never place stickers on lenses". So now I was beginning to question the authenticity of the shades. To alleviate my worries, I decided to take them to a local Oakley store. The employee was helpful and examined them for me. Everything checked out visually, and all the codes registered in the system. They are in fact real!
As to the sticker, they said that, "Oakley places stickers on polarized lenses, but in retail, they are taken off before they are sold". Good enough for me.
