What to Look for in Men's Prescription Running Sunglasses

When selecting your sports frame, there are three main factors to consider: frame material, extra grip, and generous coverage. And because this is the best men's prescription running sunglasses lineup, they have to be rx-friendly! Let's take a look at each.

Frame Material

A lightweight frame will keep you comfortable during long-distance runs and help prevent the dreaded frame bounce. All of the frames in today's lineup are made from durable and ultra-comfortable materials that are so lightweight you may even forget you're wearing them.


Rubber grip is crucial to keeping your running sunglasses in place. They provide extra security and comfort no matter how much bounce you have in your stride. And if you get sweaty, you're in luck, because many of these frames have reactive rubber that gets tackier when wet.


For running sunglasses, keep your eyes on 8-base wrap-around frames or tall and wide lenses. Both of these work to deliver maximum sun protection and unobstructed vision.


Every frame below is available with prescription at SportRx! With our easy-to-navigate lens configurator, you'll be building your custom pair of men's prescription running sunglasses in no time. Have questions along the way? Our team of fellow runners and expert opticians are waiting for your call! Give us a ring and we'll be happy to discuss your prescription needs and running frames.

Oakley Flak 2.0 XL

The Oakley Flak 2.0 XL is a favorite sports frame for good reason. It can do it all. It checks every box for running sunglasses criteria: lightweight wear, superior coverage and sun protection, and a secure and comfortable fit. No matter how much bounce you have in your stride, we're confident the Flak 2.0 XL will stay perfectly in place. This is due to Oakley's Three-Point-Fit system and Unobtainium™ rubber nose pads and temples that get tackier the more you sweat.

As for the lenses, we love the interchangeable lens system of the Oakley Flak 2.0 XL. Whether you're out for a late-night run to clear your mind, or competing in a summer afternoon race, you can get the perfect level of tint with interchangeable Oakley PRIZM™ lenses. And they're available in prescription!

Rudy Project Spinair 57

This athleisure frame is the perfect style for weekend runs or hanging out with friends after you've crossed the finish line. Generous square lenses provide excellent coverage and handle a range of prescriptions with ease. Fully adjustable temple tips can be easily maneuvered in any direction, so you get perfect grip and a custom fit. Rubber nose pads also provide extra security and comfort.

Our Sports Opticians love the double nose bridge because it encourages air flow and decreases fogging. We're also big fans of the longevity of this frame because you can buy replacement parts. After a few seasons of long-distance runs, you can purchase replacement temple tips and nose pads from Rudy Project.

Megol® rubber nose pads and temples are hydrophilic, which means they get tackier when wet. And if you are sweating, that's no problem because the rectangular lenses are treated with a hydroleophobic coating. Sweat and water easily slides off so you can stay focused on the finish line.
