Long bike rides your thing? Or running a 10k in the depths of a early winter morning? Whatever your sport, exercise or hobby you don’t want your glasses to work against you, so you may be surprised to hear they don’t have to.
A number of sport-dedicated brands have extended their range into eyewear, making an active life easier and well, more comfortable. Take a look at a pick of the brands who fulfil their promises:
Oakley OX8038 Milestone
Oakley are well-known worldwide for being one of the best durable frames around, both in sunglasses and opticals. Their Milestone model is the thinnest, lightest and strongest non-metal frame ever to be created by Oakley. Meaning they’ll fit comfortably whilst you’re at the office or trekking up a mountain.
Nike 7071/2 Sports Eyewear
Another global leader in active wear is Nike. Their collection of prescription eyewear is impact-resistant with a wrap-fit frame design to ensure stability. Or if you want something a little more specific, they create frames to specialise in different sports too (not to mention a very interesting ‘cooling helmet’ worn by Ashton Easton at the World Championships in Beijing…)
Bollé Origin Sunglasses
Cycling enthusiasts may already be familiar with this French band who sponsored the Giro D’Italia this year, but with winter coming their sunglasses range are perfect too for snow sports at very reasonable prices. Need a prescription? Watch this space as Bollé are moving into prescription eyewear very, very soon.
Finally, trusted outdoor brand Timberland has designed premium-quality eyewear and sunglasses that’ll stand up strong against the wind, rain and snow. We’re supposedly in for a pretty chilling winter, so a pair of classic Timberland boots and specs can’t go far wrong.
