YOU SHOOT, YOU SCORE!

We’ve come a long way since Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s famous basketball goggles. Today’s
athletes can choose sports eyewear made with
the newest, lightest, safest materials—all designed
to enhance performance and protect
vision. The same applies to the field of safety
glasses, as many of the features used to protect
athletes on the field or in the rink also work on
the job. And let’s not forget the growing field of
sports fashion— your busy customers multi-task
their way through their days, they expect their
eyewear to do the same. — Marissa Walsh
