I really want a pair of shades to keep the flies out of my eyes on summer  runs. I guess wrap around ones are a good idea. Does anyone have any suggestions for good shades that wont break the bank, don't bounce on your nose and keep out those pesky flies?

Cheap, light, and you won't cry when you step on them

I got a really good pair of Kuota ones from eBay. Great fit, don't bounce and don't steam up. At around and at around £25 great value. I lost one of the rubber sleeves for the arms and emailed them and they sent me a replacement so service is amazing for a cheap pair of glasses.

Just upgraded to a pair of Julbo Trail but they where expensive but worth every penny.

I've used Sunwise for the last couple of years and to be honest can't really fault them, normally between £20-£35 quid which cannot be bad value especially as they come with several different lenses, many running shops sell them, I got mine from Sweatshop which has branches all over the place...

Another vote for Sunwise - do the job great for around £20...

And another vote for Sunwise. Cost about £25 from the local Sweatshop. Don't even know I'm wearing them.

Thanks playmates. That's great. I'll try the sunwise. At that price who can complain?

Im a big fan of oakley flak jackets, ive got a carbon fibre pair with polarized lenses from the okley custom range which is a little bit more costly than standard glasses but the quality is great. Very pleased

There is a review of shades in this month's RW.

I picked up a pair of wraparound shades from a local Sainsbury's last summer for around £15 and they've done the job more than adequately. As long as they have UV protection I'm not really bothered what make they are, as long as they're a decent fit and stay in place while I'm running.
