Posted December 01, 2019 06:59:31If you’ve been living under a rock for the last few months, you probably don’t know that you can have your very own pair of glasses to watch football matches with.
There are a lot of different brands out there, but if you’ve ever seen any of the football shirts from some of the most famous clubs in the world, you’ll know what I mean.
The first brand to really jump on the bandwagon was Nike, which released the first pair of football goggles to go with their first pair.
That first pair included a pair made from recycled plastic, so it was pretty obvious they were going to be a hit.
So why the fuss?
Nike had to compete with other brands like Adidas, Nike+ and Adidas+ for a piece of the action, but Nike’s first pair was a hit, selling out fast.
In fact, Nike’s initial response to the idea of glasses for football was so successful that they decided to manufacture a second pair, this time using a recycled plastic material called polycarbonate.
You can see the first version of the Nike+ football glasses in action on this short video from the Nike website.
And Nike+ was a success, selling almost 700,000 pairs of glasses in its first three years of sales.
Nose to nose?
As the sport became more popular, the number of people watching football became greater and the demand for football glasses increased.
To make sure that people were comfortable with wearing football glasses, Nike launched their own range of football glasses to cater for the growing demand.
Now you might be thinking, “I can see why Nike might want to get in on the game.”
When Nike first launched its first pair, the company made a statement that it was serious about making a product that people would wear all the time.
This was to say, “If you want to wear the right kind of glasses, you’ve got to wear them everyday.”
I know, right?
Nike’s statement is something I’m sure many people would agree with, and Nike+ continued to sell out over the course of the next few years.
As we saw with the Nike Golf Pro, the trend of people wearing footballs all day long is a pretty big deal.
But what if you don’t want to look like a football fan?
You could always opt for the cheaper, but still functional, Nike glasses.
I would still recommend buying a pair when the opportunity arises.
After all, even if the price is lower, it’s still a good value for money.
