The Top Three Sunglasses for Running

The Top Three Sunglasses for Running

Rudy Project Proflow
Rudy Project Proflow
This best-in-class model pulled a respectable 88 points out of 100 during Erinn Morgan’s extensive field testing. You can adjust pretty much anything that you’d conceivably want to adjust (nose pads, temple tips), and the wrapped lens design provides both excellent coverage and a clear, wide field of vision. $300.

POC Do Flow

With an MSRP of $170, the Do Flow easily ranked as the best value among the glasses we tested, and its 87-point rating means that it should perform in the field as well. Grilamid material makes the frame fairly lightweight (albeit slightly stiff), and the hip styling also keeps you from looking like some uber-runner android type. You don’t get adjustable nose pads, however.

Spy Daft
Spy Daft
The Daft introduces lots of solid performance—full-coverage design, excellent peripheral vision, lens venting, two lens options for varying light conditions—in a design that’s lightweight, comfortable, and reasonably priced. Morgan gave these shades 88 points (tying the Rudy Project Proflows), with only minor gripes like non-adjustable nose pads and the inevitable smudging of the rimless lenses when you swap ‘em out. Otherwise, a primo pair of running shades.
