Be ready for any adventure with sport frames for every budget. 


Getting ready for a race or just kicking around a soccer ball? Don’t forget your sunglasses! Wearing sunglasses will protect your eyes from the sun’s damaging UVA-UVB and from potential impact that could harm your eyes. Here are several products for any athlete on any budget. 

Flash Frames #1: Semi rim style.

Looking for light frames that don’t put too much weight on your nose? With half-rim sunglasses, the frame surrounds only the top of the lens and the lower part is either supported by a nylon thread or left free standing so it makes the sunglasses lighter than a full rim.

You can find half rims for every budget.  If you want to save a little, the PAR from Foster Grant and the STRIDER from Ryders Eyewear are for you. If you are willing to spend a bit more, try the STRAITS BLACKOUT from Costa Del Mar.

The PAR sunglasses are classic sport half rim and cost just $20. These sunglasses have rubberized temples and nose pads for extra comfort. The lenses provide protection against 100% of UVA/UVB light, and are scratch and impact-resistant.
