Nike Wing Sun Shades

With the Olympics underway it’s no surprise major athletic companies such as Nike are releasing state-of-the-art gear representing the pinnacle of function and form. Take these sunglasses, or “sun shades” as Nike prefers to call them, for example. Teaming up with optical lens specialist Zeiss, the glasses push the limits of functionality, bordering on the absurd.

Dubbed The Wing, these sunglasses feature an adaptable silicone nosepiece and backhand, supposedly modeled after human tendons, resulting in a comfortable and moisture-resistant fit. Athletes lucky enough to get their hands on a pair will also enjoy a ventilated silicone brow-bar, enhancing airflow while simultaneously reducing any fogging that may occur. And if you’re wondering where The Wing got its name, it’s four grams lighter than the average eyewear, contacting the head in fewer places which leave the wearer unaware they’re actually sporting a set of eyewear in the first place. Finally, the lenses themselves hosts Nike’s Speed Tint, which reduces glare and allows all red light to enter the eye leaving the body feeling calm and at ease, a significant perk while performing in front of thousands of global fans. The were released August 5th, and if you’re truly interested, you’ll need $1,200 to discover all the perks for yourself. [Purchase]
