ND:R Sunglasses perfect for Triathletes!

As we close the summer season I have had a chance to reflect on sales, particularly from the exhibitions we have done so far this year. There is a fair bit of competition out there for sports sunglasses, in particular, the cycling market, obviously dominated by Oakleys.

I am also pleased to have many customers buy more than one pair, which means we must be doing something right and last week I received an email from Louise Minchin a UK Age Group Triathlete and BBC News Presenter saying  Thanks so much...

Latest Additions

I wanted to give you a quick update on what’s happened at NAKED:RUNNER since my last email. To begin with, the release our new yellow lens type, as requested by cyclists who like the added benefit of heightening the contrast in overcast, hazy and low-light conditions outdoors or for indoor sports whilst also filtering blue light for sharper focus. In addition to this, if you hadn’t already noticed on Facebook, we recently launched a new white version of our sunglasses named Caballo Blanco. These sunglasses were named after the barefoot runner who is immortalised in the Book "Born To Run", which served as my own inspiration to start running barefoot and is also the reason behind the name NAKED:RUNNER. I’m also...
