Prescription Running Sunglasses at SportRx
Tune in here with our Marketing Wiz Stephanie, as she shows you all the frame techs on this year’s list of best prescription women’s running sunglasses.
A common thread to look for in a pair of running sunglasses mostly is grip. With each step, you want to prevent bounce, so you don’t have to think about adjusting your frames with each step, so having a grip on the nose pads & temple tips is key in keeping them secure and steady on your face.
Another feature that helps is frame measurement. Here at SportRx, we have a specialized frame-width measurement that suits all faces and frame shapes, so once you find yours, you’ll be good at finding the right pair of running sunglasses that fit your face perfectly.
One last thing to consider is the weight of your frame. Of course, you’ll want them to be as lightweight as possible so they don’t weigh your run down. All of the frames below are picked to perfection in all these categories, so you can keep your mind off your glasses and only on your run.
Now let’s get into this list!
The freshest, most fierce frame of Nike’s collection, Nike Maverick Fierce. This sassy cat-eye frame is stylish and also performance-ready. With the same unique features as their Maverick collection, with a ventilated rubber grip on the nose pads and temple tips, this frame is comfortable and super secure for any distance you tack on.
Nike Maverick Fierce Key Features:
- Full-rim sports frame
- Ventilated rubber nose bridge
- 6-base curved frame
- SFW: 140 (Women’s XL)
The infamous Oakley Flak XS is one of our top-selling frames. Starting with the Unobtainium nose grip and temple tips gives you the tackiness you need so that the more you sweat, the firmer the grip gets. Steph mentions in the video that this collection of Flak comes in a variety of sizes, so if the XS is too small, there are sizes up so you can get the same awesome frame in a fit that suits you best.
Oakley Flak XS Key Features:
- Semi-rimless sports frame
- Interchangeable PRIZM lenses
- O-Matter frame material
- SFW: 128 (Women’s M)
Next up we have the Rudy Project Rydon Slim. This frame is nothing short of amazing; it’s engineered with adjustable nose pads which help with grip and fit as well as keeping the lens from touching your cheeks. In addition, this frame has ventilation in the lenses, which helps to prevent fogging while you’re out getting your sweat on.

When we’re talking about going for a beach run, the Maui Jim Sandy Beach is your go-to gal. This lightweight frame has a rubber grip on the nose pads and temple tips to eliminate that bounce and make this frame virtually weightless. You also get Maui Jim PolarizedPlus2® which is superior lens technology that will make you run all the more enjoyable.
Maui Jim Sandy Beach Key Features:
- Rubber nose pads and temple tips for comfort and grip
- Saltwater-safe treatment on lenses and frame—a great option for you beach joggers out there!

The smaller-size cousin of Nike’s Maverick frame, the Maverick Small has generous square lenses that provide optimal coverage. We like to call these the yoga pants of sunglasses because of how versatile and fitting they are for every activity, especially running. What’s cool about this frame is that they have ventilated rubber nose pads that promote airflow and eliminates the accumulation of sweat.
