Need alternative-fit frames that offer custom adjustability? Nike Vision’s two ophthalmic lines have it covered.
To appeal to a broader range of patients who have various fit requirements, Nike Vision from Marchon Eyewear has introduced new ophthalmic collections: AF (Alternative Fit) and CF (Custom Fit).
The line of eight models total (six AF and two CF) took about 18 months to develop, according to Marchon. AF models include a specially designed bridge that prevents sliding and provides a comfortable fit on wearers who have higher cheekbones and a lower, wider nosebridge. The CF collection features an interchangeable bridge system that also allows for both a standard fit or AF bridge that can easily be removed and replaced by an optician.
“The roll-out of the Nike Vision AF collection in the U.S. was a natural progression following the continued success of the line in Asia,” said Brent Costner, vice president of performance brands at Marchon Eyewear, Inc. “We are committed to continually considering the evolving needs of our global consumers and adapting with new, tailored offerings to fit their lifestyles and needs.”
AF collection frame shapes include full-rim rectangles along with two semi-rimless. Temples come in either lightweight, flexible nylon or full core wire (models AF7913 and AF7919) for adjustability and comfort. Style AF7924 combines a TR-90 frame front with thin injected temples and high tension hinges. AF models are available in three colorways each, including black, matte anthracite and satin dark blue.
Model CF7084 is a bolder, full-rim style that incorporates a lightweight, injected TR-90 frame front and dual-injected nylon endpieces, plus cam hinges and rubber temple sleeves. A snap-on rubber and nylon ventilated nosepad reduces fogging. CF7083 is flexible and also lightweight. Each comes in four color options.
