Back in the day, when I first started running, I never wore sunglasses. I can’t stand the feel of glasses on my face and assumed I’d feel the same about wearing sunglasses while running. I was given a pair of sunglasses to review and realized that a good pair of sunglasses made a huge difference in how sunglasses feel (and since they weren’t prescription, they weren’t super heavy.)
After many years of use, those sunglasses broke a few weeks before the RNR DC half marathon. I purchased a pair from Target and made do. But they were constantly fogged up and a little on the heavy side, so I knew it would not be long before I purchased an expensive pair again.
Enter USA-Sport.com. I happened upon their booth at the RNR DC expo. I started chatting with the reps and tried on a pair. I could barely tell I had them on! And at less than $40, they were cheaper than any of the other brands I’d been considering. So, on a whim, I bought myself a pair of the Naute Sport Marathon glasses in black (I’m boring that way.)
I immediately took them out on an 18 mile run (along with a new pair of shoes). I’m bold that way.
They were awesome! They are super light weight and have an anti-fog treatment. I barely noticed them at all on my face. I did notice that if I pushed them super tight against my face, that I did have a bit of sweat build up on the corner right by my face. This was easily solved by wearing them just a touch further down my nose. Since they are so light, they did not move at all, whether they were pushed tight on my face, a bit lower, or sitting on top of my running hat. LOVE! I also find that they fit better with a hat than any of my previous pairs and I’ve had no rubbing behind my ears. Win!
I have since run a 20 mile run and several shorter runs with them and think they are wonderful.
