Running Warehouse already carries Ryders and Tifosi sunglasses, two well-known names in running optics. And now we’re adding two more big brands: Smith and Nike. These new brands give you a full range of choices for improving and protecting your vision on the roads and trails.
A company known both for performance and lifestyle sunglass models, Smith Optics produces several models geared for optimal vision during sports and exercise.
Models We Carry
- Smith Pivlock V90 ($139.00): This well-known model features a frameless design that helps improve ventilation and gives you the widest possible field of vision. You also get a ton of lens tech, including distortion correction for an accurate vision of the road ahead and full-spectrum UV protection. Hydrophilic nose and temple pads hold the glasses firmly in place.
- Smith Parallel ($129.00): This feather-light model offers all the same lens tech features as the Pivlock V90, except you get a polarized grey lens. Like the Pivlock, the Parallel also comes with clear and red tint interchangeable lenses for cloudy or mixed light conditions.
- Smith Parallel Max ($129.00): The Parallel Max sports the same frame as the Parallel, with a slightly larger lens shape that extends lower on the cheek and further backward toward the temple for additional coverage.
Sunglasses from Nike Vision are much more than just regular old shades with a Swoosh on the side. The company is known for producing high quality performance eyewear.
Models We Carry
- Nike Impel ($179.00): These top-of-the-line running sunglasses are loaded with goodies, including durable magnesium temple arms, lens distortion correction and a scratch-resistant lens coating. Ventilation is maximized via the “flying lens” design and an adjustable, ventilated nose bridge. Other features include hinges that spring open and full UVA/UVB protection.
- Nike Impel Swift ($179.00): Enjoy all the features of the Impel, but with a different lens cut that’s more rounded on the outside edge.
- Nike Hyperion ($139.00): With the same lens technology as the Impel (distortion correction, scratch resistance, UVA/UVB protection), the Hyperion trades out to a full-nylon frame for a lower price tag.
- Nike Tailwind12 ($99.00): The model you’ll see on many Olympic athletes in London this year, the Tailwind12 offers a bucketful of features, including distortion correction, flying lens to prevent fogging, cam-action hinges and a durable full-nylon frame.
