On its own, the Nike Wing (available Aug. 5th) is a striking design that looks like an alien spacecraft that is ready to attack, but it on your face and its a whole 'nother story. Designed for running, the shape of the frame has been wind tunnel tested to create an aerodynamic form that reduces drag. 

Turning your face into a wind-slicing fighter jet is no easy feat, the company teamed up with the eyewear experts at VSP Global and Zeiss to create a single lens that extends into the earstems and features a hinge-less design. Fractal cuts and a creased center aid in aerodynamics while a vent in the brow-bar reduces any potential lens fogging.
