What to Look for in Athleisure Sunglasses

For a comprehensive look at what classifies as an excellent pair of athleisure sunglasses, head to our Athleisure Sunglasses Buyer’s Guide. Here, we’ll simply cover some key features to keep your eye out for.


Frame Technology

The frame material should be lightweight and durable, like nylon, and have plenty of coverage. Rubber grip on the nose pads and/or temples not only provides the comfort of padding, but it keeps your sunglasses securely in place even when you sweat or encounter moisture.


Lens Technology

These days, your prescription doesn’t have to hold you back. Your prescription athleisure sunglasses can be polarized to eliminate the harsh glare we encounter every day in the car, on the grass, by the water, or in the snow. They can also have a color and contrast enhancing lens technology like Oakley’s PRIZM, SMITH’s ChromaPop, or Costa’s 580 for crisp, vivid vision.
