Last saturday the time was ripe. It was full, it was loud, it was victorious! The basketball team, Hamburg Towers, achieved a terrific season start in the edel-optics.de Arena. Over 3,000 spectators watched as the Hamburg team outrun the Baunach Young Pikes. The youngsters simply could not get past the Tower’s defense. The team, around captain Zazai, also scored many 3s, driving the arena into a rage with several dunks and even converted an alley-oop (through Justin Raffington). The advantage of the Towers was already obvious in the first quarter, so the victory was clearly in sight.
If you were at the game and did not have a clear view, then maybe you should not only go to the edel-optics.de arena, but also to one of our Edel-Optics stores. Like the Hamburg Towers, our opticians understand their trade at its best and can help you if the happenings in the sports hall looked like this for you:
From Four-Eyes to Style Icon
But you do not have to be ashamed of that! After all, eyewear has long ceased to be a pillar, and has now even become the fashion accessory. So, you kill two birds with one stone when you buy prescription eyewear, which not only makes you see sharply, but also look sexy. In the meantime, this most important fashion accessory has become indispensable from the faces of stars from film, television and sports such as Simon Cowell or Jérôme Boateng. Boateng even has his own brand at Edel-Optics, JB by Jerome Boateng, whose third collection is soon to be released. Wearing the model JB by Jerome Boateng Musickid you can be sure that the teasing kids of yesteryear are now extremely envious people.
One of the stars from the world of sports is also the Towers player René Kindzeka (who, incidentally, assisted the Alley-Oop). He cuts a good figure not only in the basketball court but also with his glasses. Which glasses suit you, you will easily see in our Virtual Mirror in the online fitting, after having selected your favourites.
If it is a model against the late summer sun rays, then you can also order a pair of prescription sunglasses. Again, the selection is huge. René looks really fresh in the Ray-Ban Clubround. If you wear this model, you do not have to be a basketball player to have the player look.
If you look outside of the ProA league, you will also find many style-conscious NBA players who wear their Air Jordans not only on the basketball court and their sunglasses not only outdoors – another example, why (sun)glasses are not just about the function, but more and more about style. The world-famous LeBron James, for example, combines his black sunglasses sometimes with a blazer like here in this picture with Dave Chappelle and Will Smith.
In questions of style, the NBA player, Russell Westbrook certainly doesn’t lag behind. The MVP of the season 2016/17 is not only a winner, but also an avowed spectacle wearer. In my opinion, he also deserves an award for fashion. It takes a certain amount of courage to wear red glasses. But if you don’t dare, you won’t win!
Speaking of winning, if you want to see the Hamburg Towers live in action, then order a ticket and come to the Edel-optics.de Arena. Next Saturday, the Towers are first driving to Baden-Württemberg to tame the kitties of the PS Karlsruhe Lions and a week later the Tigers Tübingen will get crushed at their next home game. Go, Towers!
