This Winter, Nike Vision launches the brand’s first goggle line, a collection of innovative eyewear that combines comfort and functional performance. Encompassing thoughtful design and innovative style, the launch will be comprised of three different styles: The Command, The Khyber and The Fade.
The Command in Black/Volt and Khyber in Volt will both feature Transitions Adaptive Goggle Lenses, the result of a partnership between Nike Vision and Transitions Optical. Specifically created for snow, the lenses darken and lighten in response to the sunlight and weather situation at any given time. Nike Transitions Adaptive Goggle Lenses are also color optimized to enhance critical terrain details, increase depth perception and filter out glare. Additionally, each goggle purchased comes with a bonus lens.
“Our goal is, and always has been, to serve the needs of the athlete, so it was an organic extension of our product line to foray into the goggle market,” said Steve Tripi, Marketing Director at Marchon, Nike Vision’s licensing company. “Our design team worked hand-in-hand with our athletes to ensure the product was truly functional, yet still aesthetically pleasing. We’re fully confident that the Nike Vision customer will be pleased with the results.”
See below for additional information on the forthcoming styles:
A sleek frame shape designed for a larger fit, the Command provides comfort, adaptable performance and maximum peripheral vision. It features a six-base injected-polycarbonate spherical lens to ensure a wide field of view, combined with 100% UV protection and an anti-fog treatment to keep vision clear. The frame’s Engineered Durable Water Repellant mesh enhances airflow and repels exterior moisture, preventing fog for best-possible visibility.

A wide-open field of view meets comfort thanks to a flexible polyurethane frame, built for a glove-like medium/large fit. The Khyber’s frame features Engineered Durable Water Repellant to enhance airflow and repel exterior moisture, preventing fog to guarantee maximum visibility. A push-and-pull bracket system allows the wearer to change lenses quickly to easily adapt to changing light conditions.
Athlete-driven performance meets an iconic cylindrical frame with The Fade. A team rider favorite, thanks to its comfortable functionality and timeless style, the Fade taps into Nike’s innovation heritage with advanced materials such as its ThermaFit microfiber fleece and Engineered Durable Water Repellant Mesh.
