I want nice running glasses, but if I take off my prescription glasses and put on a nice set of shades, I am likely to fall over!

I have seen the Adidas Evil Eye with prescription lens inserts, and today I was recommended Oakleys.

They are all best part of £300 eek!

Can anyone recommend something different? Or a cheaper option?

Mine are varifocals with reaction lenses and they work fine.

Can't vouch for them as I run in contact lenses, but these people used to advertise as a "shopping partner" on this very site:

I have ones by the shopping partner, as per DeeGee's link. They are fine, don't move about and I have happily run ultras wearing them. The prescription part is a little clip in component so they can be used without this component if you were wearing contacts.

Got something to say?
