Marchon Bows the Nike Young Athletes Sun Collection


NEW YORK—Marchon has announced a line of stylish youth shades featuring Carl Zeiss optics from Nike Vision, the Nike Young Athletes Sunglass collection.

“Nike is a brand that provides inspiration to kids, and it’s a brand parents choose for their children, as well,” said Steve Tripi, marketing director for Marchon Eyewear. “If you give kids the style, comfort and brand they want, it will increase the chance of them wearing their sunglasses.”

The new Nike Young Athlete Suns premium five style assortment includes kid-sized versions of Nike Vision’s most popular adult styles, including the Nike Varsity, Nike Lava, Nike Reverse, Nike Trophi and Nike Champ. Fresh colors like Blue Hero, University Red and Laser Purple are combined with black, crystal grey and white on highly universal frames that complement faces of all shapes and sizes.

Though made primarily for after sport use, Nike Young Athlete Suns feature all the same performance attributes Nike adult frames have, including safety U-bevel, polycarbonate lenses, 100 percent UV protection, Nike Max Optics and Carl Zeiss Lens Tints formulated for developing eyes.
