Merchandise Monday: Protect Those Peepers! Our Picks for National Sunglasses Day

Sunglasses do more than keep you looking cool (although the right pair can certainly do that). The proper pair of sunglasses can block out harmful UV rays and protect your eyes from skin damage, cataracts, and even possibly macular degeneration. Despite these long-term benefits, only 21 percent of American adults say that they always wear sunglasses.

Don’t be one of the 79 percent of Americans with unprotected eyes! June 27th is National Sunglasses Day, and we’re taking part. For this week’s Merchandise Monday post, we’ve rounded up some very notable sunglasses from our rewards portfolio. From sporty to chic, there’s something stylish — and protective — for everyone to choose from.

If you’re a golfer, you know the importance of protecting your eyes while out on the green and under the sun. These golfing sunglasses from Nike® are made just for that purpose: They feature a pro-cut lens for expanded coverage, while Nike® MAX Optics provide excellent clarity from all angles.
