Two-Time MLB All-Star Justin Turner Creates Signature Collection with Kaenon Sunglasses

June 29, 2023

Irvine, Calif (June 29, 2023)/ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – Kaenon is releasing its first signature sunglass collection with two-time MLB All-Star Justin Turner. The first installment of the Justin Turner Signature Collection from Kaenon includes two versions of the Arcata SR, Turner’s preferred model for on-field play. Unlike typical athlete-endorsement relationships, Turner has a unique situation with Kaenon as both an athlete ambassador and a vested partner in the brand. Turner has been seen wearing Kaenon on and off the field for years, and brought the brand with him when he joined the Boston Red Sox before the start of the 2023 season. The Justin Turner Signature Collection marks the first time Kaenon has partnered with a professional baseball player on a sunglass collection.

The Kaenon Justin Turner Signature Arcata SR ($175) is 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.

The design of the Kaenon Arcata SR combines an 8-base lens with a semi-rimless design that provides ultimate peripheral and downward vision without blind spots. Other features include a lightweight, flexible, and durable TR-90 frame material, hypoallergenic nose pads, and grip tips on the temples to ensure the frame stays secure. The Kaenon Justin Turner Signature Arcata SR comes with a protective micro-fiber sunglass bag featuring a custom graphic that includes Turner’s signature, and a bonus hard case for added travel protection.

Turner is a two-time All-Star, World Series champion, and recipient of the 2022 Roberto Clemente Award for his philanthropic work with the Justin Turner Foundation, which he co-founded with his wife, Kourtney. Turner was born in Long Beach, California, making his connection to the Southern California-based Kaenon even more natural.

Off the field, Turner often can be seen wearing Kaenon’s Venice ($100) model from the brand’s Essentials Collection. The Venice is a classic flat-front style, handcrafted in Japan, that features a featherlight frame and Kaenon’s premium SR-91 polarized lenses.

Turner’s multi-frame signature collection is available now on Kaenon.com and key Kaenon retailers nationwide.
