Avoiding Fake Oakley Frogskins Sunglasses

Are you surprised that Oakley Frogskins Sunglasses are often faked? You shouldn’t be. Every luxury item has a counterfeit versions out on the market. In this article we’ll take a look at some ways to insure that the Oakley Frogskins Sunglasses you buy are the real deal.

Review Continued Below…

A common mistake that the unauthorized replica makers of Oakley Frogskins Sunglasses commit is that they put a sticker on the lens. It may even look real with the right logo and text and actuall say “Genuine Oakley”. However real genuine Oakley Frogskins don’t have a sticker on them at all. Not on the lens, not even on the frame unless they’re prescription frames only available through a licensed optometrist.

Speaking of the lens, real Oakley Frogskins Sunglasses have the brand name etched into the lens. Replicas are typically screen printed and occasionally this isn’t even done properly. 

Another common trait of fake Oakley Frogskins Sunglasses is on the arms. Fakes most often use painted on lettering rather than raised on inset lettering. However, some Oakley models vary from this so you’ll need to check by both model and year to confirm this.

The last characteristic of fake Oakley Frogskins Sunglasses that we’ll discuss is the nose piece and the ear cushions. On the genuine article they have a soft and sticky feel due to the quality of the material used. Replicas often have cheap plastics that are hard and smooth.

I hope this article has given you some information on how to avoid fake Oakley Frogskins Sunglasses. As always, use common sense and take your time to check the facts and you’ll find bargains rather than rip-offs.

Thanks for focusing a lens on the potential pitfalls of buying cheap Oakley Frogskin sunglasses. When at some point in the future we meet in person, we will raise our arms, clink our glasses, and I shall frame an appropriate toast of praise.

I’d write more, but don’t want to make a spectacle of myself.

I had no idea that there was such a big problem with fake Oakley Frogskin sunglasses. I guess it’s no surprise, however … so many products get knocked off so quickly nowadays that both manufacturers and retailers have to be very vigilant about protecting their brands. The big manufacturers in the soccer industry have similar problems, I know.

Are you saying the Oakley Frogskins Sunglasses I picked up in Bali last year for $10 may not be real - they have the genuine Oakley Frogskins Sunglasses sticker on them so I thought it was worth spending the extra $5 on them - I am devastated if my Oakley Frogskins Sunglasses are fakes LOL

hi Frank, Thanks for the article on fake Oakley Frogskins Sunglasses. I’ve been wanting to get a pair of Oakleys for a while. My problem with sunglasses is that when I buy an expensive (premium) pair I lose them in a month or so. When I buy a cheap pair (like I have now) so that I won’t mind losing them, I never lose them! I think I’ve had my current pair of cheap sunglasses for 3 years! ~ Steve :)

Hi Steve,

I wear glasses so I mostly use dorky clip-ons. However, if I buy an expensive set of clip-on polarized sunglasses for fishing they’re almost certain to get broken or lost. Because of this, I’m not about to pay for a pair of prescription Oakley Frogskins Sunglasses.

hi Frank, Good point! I need glasses too, but have gotten away with contacts for a while now, so I can wear contacts and cheap $5 drug store stand sunglasses. However, my contacts don’t give me such good vision now and my doc is telling me it’ll be back to glasses eventually. I think when that happens I go the dorky clip-on route also, since losing a pair of prescription Oakley Frogskins Sunglasses would really hurt! ~ Steve of limited vision but plenty of portable trade show booths

I’ll be sure to look out for genuine Oakley Frogskins Sunglasses … nothing worse for a cowboy than having the right hat, the right boots, but cheap and nasty shades.

I saw some really cheap replica Oakleys before, but I ordered a few pairs from a place and I have to say I was impressed. They look EXACTLY like the real Oakleys. Be sure to ask them about other replica Oakley models thay have that aren’t on the site. They have more than they show on their site that you can get.

The age of the fake is upon us, and sometimes the quality of the rip-off products are very close to the real thing, so much so that one often wonders where the price differential truly comes in.

Let’s face it that the charged for value of a brand is sometimes exhorbitant versus the finished product that the consumer actually purchases, and especially in the area of fashion and fashion accessories, where trends come and go rather quickly it is sometimes a moot point if true value for money is offered by the original product. This leads to a ready market for cheap imitations that get discarded next season in favour of more trendy items.

Educating consumers on the differences is a good thing, which will lead to cheaper fakes being easily identified, but as for more high-end rip-offs (like some Rolex watches I’ve seen where even jewellers can’t tell the difference) being passed off as the real thing (albeit at a really great price - which most savvy consumers are loathe to disregard, as everybody loves a bargain / good deal) I just don’t know.
