Any difference between 2012 Smith I/O goggles and the 2013 ?

What year was the Smith IO Black Foundation released? Is it any different then the 2013 other then the color?

Thanks

I emailed Smith they are 2011s with only the color being different.

Though I thought there was problems with fit on the older ones?

They added triple density foam on the 2013 model.

So would it fit better? feel better? Whats the advantage to triple density foam?

In theory yeah. No idea how much difference it would make as I've not tired the 2012, just the 2013 (but the i/OX version). Overall great goggle but the triple foam doesn't seem anything special compared to other brands.

So paying an extra $80 for the 2013 wouldnt be worth it?
