12 of the Best Running, Cycling and Sports Sunglasses for Men This Summer, Tested by The Experts

See yourself through a summer of outdoor fitness by wrapping the best performance wear for any pursuit around your eyes. Leave your rivals in the shadeBY EDITORS OF MEN’S HEALTH 27/07/2021sports sunglassesWESTEND61GETTY IMAGES

As you know, exposure to the sun brings myriad benefits to your health – but it can also be a pain in the cornea when it gets in your eyes. No one wants to be blindsided by glare as they negotiate a roundabout on their two-wheeled exploits, or squint their way through a red-hot 10K. If you regularly train in nature’s gym, your Aviators will be glaringly inadequate. And that’s where sports sunglasses come in.

They’re an essential piece of gear when the mercury rises. The right pair of sports sunglasses – or running sunglasses, if you’re so inclined – won’t just shield your eyes and stay comfortably in place when you’re moving at high speeds. They’ll filter glare off water, heighten contrast for ball sports and, in some cases, even play a performance-enhancing backing track to your montage-worthy training sessions.

To unfold the best from the rest, we sweat-tested an edit of the finest sports sunglasses and running sunglasses available, so you’re prepared for any activity this summer. Here, the MH editors reveal their summer-ready selection of high-spec frames, so you can stay laser-focused on the fitness. Shine on, people.

What Makes a Good Pair of Sports Sunglasses?

First and foremost, your sports sunglasses should stay put. The lenses might feature the latest sun-shielding technology, but if the frames slide down your face as soon as you break into a brisk walk, they won’t go the distance. So, lightweight frames with grip in the right places are a priority, and an anti-fog aspect – a special lens coating or ventilated design – is crucial for sweatier activities.

When it comes to the lenses, ultra violet (UV) light-blocking options are obviously a must. Scratch-resistant, anti-reflective options that increase contrast levels to enhance your surroundings can make a huge difference to an outdoors workout. Photochromic lenses – which darken automatically when exposed to sunlight – are also a bonus. And if you ask us, the very best sports sunglasses are also street-appropriate, so you can transition from park to pub seamlessly.

What Makes a Good Pair of Running Sunglasses?

Much like sports sunglasses, the best running sunglasses can be identified using two primary purchasing points: comfort and lenses. Although you’ll be bobbing up and down, running sunglasses shouldn’t be restrictive — the nose piece, the arms and the bridge should fit snug without feeling tight. That’s where that all-important grip comes in.

And again, you’ll need lenses need that block out UV light (both UVA and UVB) in all conditions. Like sports sunglasses, running sunglasses come in a vast array of tints and coatings that are designed to eliminate horizontal light waves, only letting vertical light through. This reduces glare – keeping eye strain at bay – and enhances colour, so everything appears clearer.

OAKLEYGOLFSUPPORT.COMUS$11.99SHOP NOW

Oakley is deservedly renowned for splicing optical quality with rock-solid durability. The minimalist style features “sleek double-bridge architecture”, which means larger lenses and extended protection on your field of view. These golf glasses offer long life, increased grip when you’re sweating and lenses that enhance colour on the links.

These effectively block UV rays and give you a heightened sense of contrast, allowing you to read greens better. They’re comfortable for a full 18 holes, and the nose pads keep them in place with your head over a six-footer. Helpfully, they are available with prescription lenses for athletes of all levels.LATEST DEALS

While these sports sunglasses were originally designed for long distances on the trail or track, the featherlight design makes them ideal for self-propelled trips to the office. (They will also look the part for post-work “rehydration” in the sun, too, when the time comes.) 

Though designed for demanding sports where light conditions change dramatically, they’ll also provide relief from rays when you’re sweating out a hangover by pounding the pavement. The stress-resistant frame will handle anything you throw at it, and grippy earsocks keep them locked in place. A smart investment at an affordable price point.LATEST DEALS
