Specsavers in Brecon are celebrating the launch of a new range of frames by Converse, one of the world’s most iconic and enduring sneakers brands.

The opticians located on High Street will now offer 28 different styles of Converse frames for men and women, along with six styles of sunglasses available with either prescription or non-prescription lenses.

Decorated the store

To mark the launch, Specsavers staff fitted out the store in red, white and blue flags and sported the brand’s famous trainers and t-shirts to bring an all-American theme to Brecon.

Clare Corcoran, Specsavers Brecon store director, said: ‘Converse is a truly legendary name and we’re really excited to be offering its new glasses collection exclusively at Specsavers.

‘Our designer portfolio has expanded rapidly over the last few years. Having Converse on board allows us to offer on-trend glasses to an ever wider age range of fashionable specs wearers in Brecon.'

In-store competition

To mark the iconic brand coming to the store, Specsavers Brecon are running a competition for one lucky resident to win a pair of Converse frames of their choice.

To be in with a chance of winning, customers must visit the store between the 17th and 24th of June and answer the following question:

When and by whom was the brand Converse originally founded?

Customers must leave their name, telephone number and competition answer with a member of staff at the Brecon store.

The new collection offers a wide range of styles, priced at £99, which will also be included in Specsavers’ two for one offer.
