Not certain exactly which you are referring to, but if it's the triple flange flexible silicone tips (personal favourites) then they're readily available from Shure stockists. Can easily have the stem trimmed to fit the barrel of the IEM to suit p[ersonal ear canal depth. Hope that helps ?

what i was refering  to was built onto custom monitors its goes from acrylic body to an actual soft silicone ends that are still custom to your ear shape just instead of a full acrylic body it goes from acrylic body to a soft silicone like tip thats built on to it

As an MOT, I can't comment on specific competitive products. I can factually state that mating silicone tips with acrylic bodies has been attempted by multiple companies. Historically, it hasn't been very successful. Using two parts is less mechanically sound than a unibody design approach, especially in terms of structural integrity. A major problem is the fact that silicone does not adhere well with other materials, making it difficult to mate the two parts reliably long-term.
 
That's why when Sensaphonics switched to silicone in 1999 (ProPhonic 2X-S), they went ALL silicone.
