One of the best all-around players in baseball has added another skill to his resume -- working with Gargoyles Performance Eyewear to reinvent baseball flip-up sunglasses.
Wearing flip-up glasses is important on the field because they allow me to adjust better to the difference in light between the field and the sky, which helps me pick up the ball better and react more quickly," said Griffey.
Griffey asked Gargoyles to work with him to develop a flip-up sunglass featuring some of the same technology used in Gargoyles' Octane model, which Griffey also helped design and has worn on the field.
In addition to advanced technology, the F-8 brings something else to the baseball flip-up market -- style.
Griffey, center fielder for the Seattle Mariners, co-designed the newly released Gargoyles F-8 model, flip-ups that bring new technology to the game to improve vision and performance on the field.
The company showcased its new Flip-Up Loupes - redesigned, rethought and reengineered from hinge to lens.
Add to that, countless frame options for every size and style and this flip-up takes comfort and innovation to completely new sights.
