nike visionSports eyewear brand Nike Vision has announced announces the release of the Nike Hyperforce and Nike Hyperforce Elite performance sunglasses, which are designed for baseball and training. The two lines each come in six colors and are priced from $196 to $260. They are exclusively available now for purchase at The collection will be released globally in September

Developed with direct insights from baseball stars Mike Trout and George Springer, as well as other top Nike athletes, the Hyperforce and Hyperforce Elite glasses were built for dynamic lateral movement. In addition, Nike Vision collaborated with optics industry leader ZEISS to develop the new Nike Field Tint: a high-performance green-based tint that enhances the ability to track and intercept objects in bright and shifting light. The glasses’ outer lens is treated with a reflective mirrored coating that shields the athlete’s eyes from opponents and also provides aggressive styling.

In addition, the eyewear includes a ventilated frame to prevent fogging and rubber elements for enhanced grip to eliminate slippage caused by sweat. Thin temple tips allow the frames to fit on top or underneath a hat, providing stay-put comfort. To maximize coverage and provide a wide field of view, the sunglasses feature a raised top bar and a subtle nose pad that eliminates obstruction, as well as an auto-adaptive nose bridge and temple arms that adjust to the athlete’s unique face shape, allowing for a secure fit during lateral movement. All glasses also come with 100 percent UVA and UVB protection.
