Video Review

Tune in here with Eyeglass Tyler as he covers all the frames in this video review.


Let's get started with the similarities between these three Nike sunglasses. We'll look at both the frame and lenses to see what all of these sunglasses have in common.

The Frame

Visually speaking, it's quite easy to see why we get so many questions on how to tell these frames apart. They all look quite similar! We're getting an 8-base wrap and lightweight nylon construction on each frame. A minimalist design creates clean lines that comfortably contour the face. You'll receive excellent sun protection & wide peripheral vision.

As we look at the temples, you'll find high-tension hinges for just the right amount of grip. The bent temples create comfortable wear and are finished off with texturized lines to direct sweat away from the frame and provide a secure fit.

The Lenses

As for the lenses, all three frames have a rectangular lens that contours your face thanks to the wrap design. Each is available with Nike Max Optics lenses that provide superior clarity and contrast.

If you wear prescription, select from SportRx custom lenses to create prescription Nike sunglasses.


Now that we understand how these Nike frames are similar, let's take a look at their differences.

The biggest difference? Sizing. Each of these Nike sunglasses cover a specific size range. We'll review the frame and lens measurements of each style so you can pick the best fit for you. We'll work smallest to largest, starting with the Nike Dash.

Nike Dash

The smallest of all three, the Nike Dash is an excellent option for youth or adults with petite faces. See the measurements just below the frame.
