In an Instagram post talking about the team up, the designer revealed his infatuation with the sportswear giant. He went on to admire the “philosophy, dedication to innovation, and focus on the athlete” that emerged from his time working for the brand, eight years ago. Heron then went on to note that his first collaboration was actually a take on Nike’s Tailwind Sunglasses, which he wears on a daily basis, and is representative of his outlook of the Nike company as a whole.
Set to release later this month, the Nike Tailwind HP Sunglasses builds upon the sportswear brand’s established lightweight contoured eyewear frame; A frame that provides clarity and engineered rubber ventilation, for optimum sports function. Releasing with a variety of interchangeable lenses, the collab features Nike’s MAX Optics glass combined with a Flying Lens setting – providing clarity from all angles, while reducing fogging.
