The Coolest Sports Specs for Swimming, Football, Running, Cycling and Snow Sports
The vision tech that lets the bespectacled realise the dream of competing in focus
Nike Vision Bandit
Available with prescription lenses, these are incredibly lightweight and have clever air holes that will circulate a bit of the breeze as you run. A bonus: you can wear these in other situations – which can’t be said for the others on this list. £88, buy on rxsport.co.uk
RECOMMENDED: The Best Sports Sunglasses
Rec Specs Maxx 30
If you think your eyesight is bad now, imagine what it’ll be like when a football smashes into your specs and pushes shards of glass into your face. That’s why no ref is going to let you wear breakable glass. These, however, use toughened polycarbonate lenses and a headstrap, so they’re not coming off or breaking in your face. £130, buy on rxsport.co.uk
Aqua Sphere Eagle
Seeing underwater can be a hassle at the best of times, so prescription lenses in swim goggles will solve your problems. Unlike some other alternatives, you can order these with different strengths for each eye. And they look just like any other pair of swim goggles. £50, buy on rxsport.co.uk
BBB Optiview Sport
If you’re on a bike a lot, you’re already likely to be wearing something over your eyes to protect them from debris and insects, so make sure they have prescription lenses in. These have an interface to slot the lenses in and adjustable options all over to ensure you’re in total comfort during your ride. Unless the insects are going in your mouth. £43, buy on wiggle.co.uk
Oakley Line Miner Prizm
These slick-looking goggles are designed to fit over your prescription glasses (most pairs, at least) so things couldn’t be simpler. They’re comfortable and secure, so you don’t need to worry about damaging your specs if you take a tumble. £135, buy on oakley.com
