At Oiselle, our vision is to help all women feel strong and free through the joy of running. Our mission is to design great product, build the sisterhood, and improve the sport. May we all experience the transformative power of sports and community.
We're thrilled to release our first ever sunglasses! After researching, and wear testing, and determining what was needed most, we landed on a short list of must haves: first and foremost, ultralightweight and an ergonomic shape for a stay-put fit. No more sliding down your nose when the run heats up. Second, flexibility of materials, including arms that bend but don't break. Third, polarized and scratch-resistant lenses, for crisp vision in any conditions. Already tested on 6, 10, and 18 mile runs, consider these your new eagle eyes! Introducing the runglasses!
I got a few pair because these fit so well! Sometimes glasses make my temples hurt after wearing them a while, but these don't! They're super light and durable, and to me the sun protection is perfect (I know some reviews say it's not enough, but I haven't had that experience). I now keep a pair in my car, a pair in my purse and a run pair that get dirty. Love the color and lens options and especially the price point!
For years I have worn a bunch of sunglasses I got for free from a bank table at a running expo, but they have started to get scratched and break so I was in the market for new sunglasses. I tried a prominent sunglass brand and just didn't jive with them, so I threw a pair of the Runglasses in my next Oiselle order and I LOVE THEM. I've been wearing them all summer, they're now my primary pair. They don't slip down when I run (and sweat), and they're light and fun. I saw other reviews mention too much glare, but I haven't had that problem, and my light blue eyes are pretty sensitive, so maybe it depends on which pair you got. I went with the obsidian/rose and feel like they are dark enough. I'm leaving a review because I came back to this page to buy another pair - time to start stocking up on my new favorite sunglasses!
I run in the morning before work. When the sun is to the side or behind me it makes bright reflections off the inside of the lenses . These sunglasses are lightweight and have a great fit - I hope the next version includes better side coverage.
These sunglasses fit nicely, but the sun is so glaring I do not feel like I have sun glasses on~
If the return shipping wasn't $10, I would return them~
