SportRx Aviva

Designed for active women who don’t sacrifice style, the SportRx Aviva sunglasses seamlessly blend fashion and function. The lightweight, eco-friendly resin frame is super easy to wear, no matter how many miles you’re clocking. Large, rounded lenses give you the coverage you need in a classic look on even the brightest days. As for frames that bounce when you run, SportRx Aviva’s rubber nose pads and bent temples keep them comfortably snug for every stride. Whether you’re training for a 5k or taking a leisurely jog around your neighborhood, the Aviva will be with you every step of the way.
