NIKE VISION + ZEISS PRESENT A BEHIND-THE-SCENES LOOK AT INNOVATIVE MANUFACTURING PROCESS


Nike Vision (Nike’s line of performance, lifestyle and optical eyewear) presents a behind-the-scenes manufacturing video of the groundbreaking 2016 Running Collection of sunglasses. Nike Vision partnered with industry leader ZEISS to work outside the constraints of traditional eyewear manufacturing. NIKE + ZEISS partnership started from scratch to manufacture a new lens from a custom mold. Once developed, the mold was refined using ultra-precise machinery with diamond-polishing technology to polish the complex lens shape down to the nanometer. The end result is a lightweight, state-of-the-art lens that maximizes coverage and provides optimum clarity to allow athletes to perform at the highest level.  The innovative process resulted in a 5-piece collection for every level of athlete, from the casual jogger to the gold medal athlete. Many Nike athletes will be wearing the collection this summer in RIO 2016.
