                 A Head-Turning Look, Day or Night

NORTH ANDOVER, Mass. (August 2010) – Converse launches its Glow-In-The-
Dark sunglasses as its latest addition to the brand’s eyewear collection with partner
REM Eyewear. In the daylight, these unconventional frames have the appearance
of frosted ice, with dark 100% UV lenses. While you soak up the sun during the day,
they soak up the light, powering-up for their night time light show. When the sun
sets or things go dark, the optical illusion begins: the frames of these unique
glasses emit a captivating pale citrus glow. In the bar, at a concert, at a party or
prowling the city streets: it is time to wear your sunglasses at night.

These glowing glasses come in two unisex styles: The Half Stack, an oversized, modified
aviator and the Line Up, a classic traditional rectangle shape, both crafted from hand-milled
phosphorescent acetate. Converse Glow-In-The-Dark sunglasses are a must-have for anyone
on the cutting edge who wants to own the next big thing, FIRST. These unique head-turning
shades are guaranteed to be on the top of trendsetters’ wish list this holiday season.

                       Converse Glow in the Dark Line Up

Suggested retail price $ 58, available at fine optical shops and department stores
