You know how there are some people who just cannot go without sunglasses? I’m not one of those people. Sure, I have a pair or three, but I often forget to bring them with me when I go places. I know that in my mid 30s, I should probably make more of an effort to wear sunglass when I’m outside to protect against wrinkles, so when Sunglasses Shop offered to send me a pair of running sunglasses, I was definitely game to try them out.
Sunglasses shop is based in the UK and offers all kinds of different sunglasses from designer sunglasses like Oakley and Ran-Ban (I’m not going to lie, I wish they offered me those) to motorcycle glasses and even skiing googles. Even though it was coming from the UK, the order shipped pretty quickly. They offered me a pair of the SXUC sunglasses and I chose the black matte color.
These came the other day and I was able to try them out during a walk with Murphy this afternoon. While I wouldn’t really wear these as fashion glasses, I think they’d work fine for running. They seemed to stay on my nose really well, although I wish the nose bridge was made of something more rubbery than hard plastic. They blocked a fair amount of light without being too dark, which was nice.
I’ll definitely try to remember to bring these with me on runs. Although they aren’t big lenses, you can see that they definitely protect a good bit around the eye which I think is helpful for preventing wrinkles.
Sunglasses Shop would like to send a reader a pair of the same glasses. All you have to do is like them on Facebook and leave a comment telling me that you did so. I will pick a winner on Wednesday, January 2nd.
Happy New Year’s Eve Eve! I’m meeting a friend to see Djanjo Unchained. I have tomorrow off. It’s kind of awesome that it feels like Sunday night (and is), but it’s really kind of like Friday night.
