Practical sports sunglasses

Are you planning to stay active this summer? If so, you’ll need a pair of prescription sunglasses specifically designed for sports. A wraparound frame with rubber padding is ideal for intense activities, like running and cycling. It will stay securely on your face, provide long-lasting comfort and keep your eyes fully protected. You’ll also need to make sure your sunglasses are made of robust materials like metal and acetate, especially for ball sports where there is a risk of damage from flying objects. We have plenty of styles from your favourite sports brands that are perfect for both sports and comfortable, casual wear – they’re also ideal if you’re cheering your favourite players on from the crowds!

Stylish 2-for-1 must-haves

Get yourself Wimbledon-ready with not one, but two pairs of trendsetting sunglasses. When you buy a frame from our popular 2-for-1 range, you’ll get a second frame FREE as long as it’s up to the same value as the first. You can then add your preferred tints, starting from £15 each, to both frames and turn them into sunglasses. So, either you can alternate between styles on different days or you can give the second pair to a friend or loved one. Take a look at some of the designs we’ve selected.
