The best running sunglasses

SMITH PIVLOCK ARENA

With the simplest lens exchange system, the ease of use of the PivLock Arena makes these a great running sunglass if you like to tailor your lens to the light conditions on a regular basis. The lack of frame also means visibility is excellent, but can often be detrimental to fit. This isn't the case here and with an adjustable nose bridge too, these glasses have been on regular rotation during summer.

Oakley Flight Jacket running glasses

OAKLEY FLIGHT JACKET

Available in many colours, bright and muted, the Flight Jacket is a crossover glass from Oakley that does it for runners and cyclists alike. The main sell is the adjustbale nose piece and open topped frame to help with fogging on hot, sweaty runs. They are expensive though.
