If you’re the type that places importance on keeping up with the Joneses, your wallet is about to get a lot lighter. That’s because Nike just released a special set of sun-blocking, aerodynamic sunglasses that retail for $1,200. They’re designed for Olympic athletes, but you know old man Jones is going to be sporting those when he mows the lawn.

The Nike Wing is one single piece, a curved-glass “sun shield” that protects your eyes and wraps around your temples rather than looping over your ears. The company claims that the shield technology is the first of its kind, and it probably is, because these seem pretty unnecessary.

The Nike Wing prevents fogging with a ventilated silicone brow-bar and the fractal cuts help with your aerodynamics. Even better, they’ll make you look like a time traveler from the future. I suppose $1,200 isn’t that much if it’s going to help you win Olympic gold, but how much (and if) they actually help is the big question. They’ll help you look ridiculous, that’s for sure.
