We all know that baseball players and sunglasses go hand-in-hand. It's a perfect combination since players are out in the sun all game long. So that means a partnership between an MLB athlete and a sunglasses brand is long overdue… right? Correct!

Well folks, today Boston Red Sox Player Justin Turner has released his first signature collection from Kaenon including two versions of the Arcata SR, Turner's preferred model for on-field play.

This collaboration is a unique dual role of vested partner and athlete ambassador, a major full circle for Turner as he has quite literally been wearing Kaenon for years. Here are some of the details of how this deal came to be.

The Kaenon Justin Turner Signature Arcata SR


Cost: $175

These are available with a matte white frame or a matte grey frame, both with Kaenon's polarized SR-91 Ultra Red mirrored lens. Turner chose the SR-91 Ultra Red lens for his signature piece as it is one of the most versatile in the Kaenon lineup. It provides superior color separation with advanced depth and detail, making it perfect for various on-field conditions. With crisper optics than standard polycarbonate lenses and a fraction of their weight, Kaenon's SR-91 Ultra lens is ideal for helping to track objects in a  variety of light conditions.  

"Sunglasses are vital equipment when players are on the field and can make a huge difference in a player's ability to follow the ball. The Arcata SR's lightweight and semi-rimless design makes  it barely noticeable when I'm playing, and the Ultra Red mirrored lens is perfect for a wide range of light conditions," commented Turner.
