Our Running Collection
Hit the ground running with a pair of specialist sunglasses. No matter if you are working up to your first 5K or are in training for a mighty marathon, our collection of running sunglasses can help take your vision and your performance to that next level.
What Lens Is Best Suited to Your Conditions?
As a runner, you have the enviable opportunity of being able to train whenever you want. No matter if it is cold and dark or blue skies and sun, you can always hit the ground running. That is why it is so important to make sure you have a pair of running sunglasses that will help enhance and protect your vision.
For running in blue skies and sun, we recommend brown and amber lenses. These lenses are designed to minimise sunlight, enhance your contrast and improve your depth perception. Another popular option is photochromic lenses that change their transparency depending on the light levels – ideal for all-weather runners.
Look out for:
Bolle’s Phantom Brown Red & Smith’s Chromapop Green Mirror.
When you are in overcast conditions or trail running through woodland, opt for low-light lenses. These lenses often come in rose, amber or brown tints as they provide excellent visibility and enhance contrast. They also help filter out specific colours so objects against blue and green backdrops are clearer.
Look out for:
Oakley’s PRIZM Trail & Rudy Project’s ImpactX 2 Photochromic.
You may not know this but you can still improve your vision with sunglasses even at night. We recommend wearing clear photochromic lenses in these dark conditions as they can help protect your eyes from road dust or debris. The tint also darkens in reaction to UV light, making them perfect for dawn or dusk runs.
Look out for:
Oakley’s Clear Black Iridium Photochromic & Rudy Project’s ImpactX 2 Photochromic.
When it comes to picking a shape for your running sunglasses, you have three main options to choose from. We recommend you explore the benefits of each shape and what features they can offer you as a runner.
For ultimate protection, wraparound sunglasses are a great choice. The curved lens design helps to keep wind, rain and harmful UV rays out of your eyes. Also, as they wrap around the sides of your face you will minimise debris of dust getting into your eyes.
A huge benefit of half-rim sunglasses is that they offer you the ability to interchange your lenses depending on your conditions. They also provide you with a wider field of view so you can quickly and easily access your terrain for any obstructions or upcoming hazards.
Ensure you are not slowed down by your eyewear by opting for a shield shape. These slick sunglasses are incredibly lightweight and will not hold you back. You will also have a panoramic view of your surroundings while still having a lot of protection.
As you are searching for your perfect pair of running sunglasses, you will most likely stumble upon these technical features. If you are unsure what they mean, here is a brief explanation.
