Heron Preston took to Instagram to announce the official release date of his highly anticipated sunglass collaboration with Nike. He shares why he chose an accessory versus a sneaker or apparel, "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."
In collaboration with Nike, the “Nike Tailwind HP” comes in three colorways, chrome, grey and yellow tinted lenses and are currently available for purchase.

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. I’m happy to announce that on NOV 29th 2018 the world will finally get to experience the “Nike Tailwind HP” performance sunglasses dropping worldwide.
