Introducing the Nike Wing Sunglasses

Nike Vision introduces a new performance frame, dubbed the Nike Wing.

The lightweight shades are built with the needs of track and field athletes in mind, and inspired by the structure of lightweight tendons found in the wings of birds.

The Wing is designed to minimize drag and maximize the aerodynamics of runners, primarily by consolidating the shades into a single-body glass, designed in tandem with eyewear designers and innovators VSP Global and lens specialists Zeiss. This allows the Nike Wing to weigh four grams lighter than the average pair of sunglasses and touch the face in fewer places than the competition.

Also, a ventilated brow-bar maximizes airflow to reduce fogging during competition, drag has been minimized and aerodynamic flow increased across the board, via the peaked crease. Finally, the shades feature a coat of Speed Flash tint, which reduces glare from UV radiation and allows calming red light to flow through, all while giving it a liquid metal look.
