A long time ago in a land far away the Sunglasses Shop asked if I wanted to try out a pair of their Oakley sunglasses.
I finally got my act together and picked out the Oakley Beckon in Brown Sugar with Bronze (there’s a lot of different colors in this style).
I have one running specific pair of sunglasses (seen in this post), but I’ll pretty much wear any of my sunglasses while running if they don’t fog up or slide around my face.
All Oakley sunglasses are built using Oakley technology; the High Definition Optics give you the best clarity and a Three-Point-Fit means your sunglasses will only touch your nose bridge and temple.
Unobtainium grips means the sunglasses will stay where you want them.
I like the look because they don’t look like athletic running sunglasses, but the real test was running in them, not just cruising in the smartcar. To have a good pair of glasses, you have to marry fashion with function.
The verdict: they barely moved (a little movement when I was running down a steep hill) and didn’t fog up at all. The lenses are also polarized which minimizes glare (less squinting, less baby grandma wrinkly eyes).
As practical as they are pretty, BECKON’s PLUTONITE® lenses filter out 100% of UVA / UVB / UVC and harmful blue light up to 400nm. The O Matter® frame material resists impact and stress while offering up seriously lightweight comfort.
Adorable and they’re so her, but they wouldn’t look a quarter that cute on me. I have a round face and prefer a big, square frame, and there’s a style for everyone’s preference.
Best of all, if I get a pair, one of you gets a pair of the Oakley Beckon frame as well.
