Oakley Flight Jacket Sunglasses

If you’re anything like us, the harder you’re working out, the more easily you’ll be frustrated by things like headphone cords, your untied running shoes, or those sunglasses that keep slipping down your face. What makes Oakley’s new Flight Jacket frames so great is that even when you’re pushing it the hardest – they don’t manage to get in your way.

These new athletic sunglasses from the California-based brand achieve this in a few different ways. First off, Unobtainium nose-pads and earsocks make it so the shades won’t slip, while the new Advancer nosebridge makes it super easy to toggle the position of the Flight Jacket frames so they rest further away from your face – letting more air in to helping defog lenses. To top that off, or – rather, not topping it off is a browless design. The lack of the frame along the top of the sunglasses makes for an unobstructed view even when you have your head down and you’re charging in to the finish line. At the end of the day, these are a pair of shades you can put on and just forget about until you’re back from setting a new P.R.
