Heron Preston has finally announced the release date for his upcoming Nike sunglasses collaboration. Preston shares more about the journey to this collaboration revealing that he worked for the footwear giant early in his career:
“I think whats interesting about my story of being one of Nike’s newest collaborators is the fact that I actually used to work for the company 8 years ago. That transition from fan to employee changed my perspective of Nike and its products once I started to learn more about their philosophy, dedication to innovation and focus on the athlete. Nike is a sneaker famous brand, but when I worked there, my curiosities exploded. I wanted to discover more of what the brand had to offer beyond footwear. One of those products I discovered and fell in love with were the Nike tailwind performance glasses. I wore them nearly everyday. They had interchangeable lenses with different colors and felt so innovative to me. I was actually hyped on something that wasn’t a sneaker for once! This is why I decided that my first collaboration with Nike wasn’t going to be a sneaker or apparel, but an accessory, laser focused on the very same style of glasses that made me proud to work for such an ambitious and fearless company.”
The Nike Tailwind HP sunglasses have a sporty look that is bolstered with the brand’s MAX Optics glass combined with a Flying Lens setting. The angular frames are prime for movement providing a clarity from all angles and reducing fog impact.
