Solaro Shades has named Brylie St. Clair, Mississippi State softball and social media star, as the Head of Softball Innovation. Brylie will be working with the Solaro Shades team to develop softball glasses for female athletes around the world.
“The big sunglasses companies are overlooking softball,” said Mark Paul, the co-founder of Solaro Shades. “They have baseball glasses that work for softball athletes, but we want to take it the next step: prioritize softball athletes and develop glasses just for them. Softball isn’t an afterthought, and we want to ensure it gets the attention it deserves.
St. Clair will not only help develop a softball line for the company, but also work with other Solaro Shades athletes and content creators to help them launch their own unique colorways of her design of Solaro Shades. For one, Morgan Gaither, the softball comedian with over 3 million followers, will be launching a pair under St. Clair’s leadership.
“Not only is Brylie a great athlete at Mississippi State, but she’s also very intelligent, motivated, and has a great eye for design,” said Jesse Haynes, Solaro Shades co-founder. “That’s the perfect combination for making her an invaluable asset to our goal of launching a line of dedicated softball glasses. We want to recognize the amazing women athletes changing their games, and Brylie is key to making that possible."
“I’m excited to get started,” St. Clair said. “I’ve always worn baseball sunglasses, and those never fit just the way I want. I couldn’t be more excited to help make sports glasses specifically for softball players like myself and make an impact on women in sports.”
Solaro Shades sunglasses are designed in the United States and have come from the same factories that produce similar styles at a $200 price point. The combination of quality and price have made them a success since their launch in 2022.
