Sun is out and running is a great way of keeping fit and getting some fresh air at the moment. Whether you run to keep fit, are an elite athlete or are just trying it for the first time, it’s really important to protect your eyes from the sunlight. Just as you use suncream to protect your skin, you should always use high-quality sunglasses to protect your eyesight. The sun’s UV rays can be harmful even if you are out on an overcast day, so wearing sunglasses is a must when out running.
Finding the right pair of sunglasses for running can be tricky. You want a pair which fit perfectly so that they become unnoticeable f while you are moving. They need to be comfortable, lightweight, durable and affordable. At Fashion Eyewear we can help you find the best pair and fit – we stock the best sports brands in the eyewear industry, both in optical and sunglasses. You can also add your prescription to your designer sunglasses to make running even easier.
