Nike Vision: For Athletes with a Need for Speed

Rising American 1500 meter star and Nike athlete David Torrence gave his feedback after putting the Nike Show X-2 through its paces, “I would just like to say, that these are truly my favorite running glasses I’ve ever worn. They are supremely comfortable, light, and stylish. Being able to adjust the arms so that they fit better on my head is a great idea. Some days I’m running really fast, and prefer a tighter feel, but other days I’m just going for a long easy run and having a bit of a looser grip keeps my head from hurting.” By testing our products with some of the hardest working athletes in the world, we’re able to provide you with products that deliver the performance you demand day in and day out.

Portland-based middle distance athlete Lopez Lomong chose the Show X-2 for its grip and overall comfort during his recent season opener at 2011 Stanford Payton Jordon Invitational. Lomong ran strongly in the 1500m to claim a podium finish with even better results expected as the season continues.

Across the Pacific Ocean, the Shizuoka International Athletics meet in Japan saw Nike athlete Masato Yokota set the field on fire. With help from the Nike Impel sunglasses complete with Nike Max Lens Technology, Yokota crushed the men’s 800m with a time of 1:46.85, fast enough to set a new meet record.
