Tune in here to watch Eyeglass Tyler as he gives an overview of the Nike Show X2 vs. X3 features.


    • Semi-rimless, wrapped frame
    • Great for any sport
    • Interchangeable lens functionality
    • Rubber grip on the nose bridge & temple tips
    • Prescription ready!!


So what makes these frames different? Let's dive in!

The Nike Show X2 has an SFW (SportRx Frame Width) of 138mm which makes it a men's large and women's extra-large. Between the two frames, the X2 is larger because the X3 has an SFW of 135mm, sizing it at a men's medium and women's large fit.

Some other things to notice are that the X2 has a more versatile, less sport aggressive look with its rounder frame style, and the X3 is more contoured and has more lens depth. The X3 is equipped with ventilation on the brow line and the nose bridge has a saddle bridge design which also helps with air circulation. These sport performance features make the X3 slightly heavier than the X2, so if a lightweight frame is your main ask, the X2 might be a better option. Though note that what you add in weight you add to the game.

Nike Show X2 vs. X3

To sum it up, with the X2 you get a more versatile style with a less aggressive look. It has many of the same sport capabilities as the X3 and is great for any and all sports. Plus, it's super Rx-friendly! For the X3, you may dig the more intense look to it. It has tons of ventilation to reduce fogging, and it also accommodates more coverage on the brow pads and the sides of your eyes. The X3 might be better for sports like running, baseball, or cycling where airflow is a must.
