Shady Rays X Series

Disclaimer: I received a pair of Shady Rays X Series sunglasses to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out to review find and write race reviews!”


I never used to wear shades for running but over the last few years I have been wearing them more often, so I was thrilled when I was given the opportunity to try these out. I opted for the black glacier polarized since blue and black are my two favorite colors. There are several colors as well as several styles to choose from. I really like the X Series because they “look” more like running sunglasses. My sunglasses arrived in a pouch that can be used both for storage and for cleaning the lenses.

Not only are they sporty, lightweight and great for running, they are also stylish and great for everyday use! I always worry about comfort and I have to say, I hardly knew I was wearing them! I have not had any issues with them fogging up but they do fit snug and wrap around leaving less room for air movement. It has not been real hot here yet so I am not sure if that will change once the heat and humidity comes.


Price: Shady Rays has a very nice price point, they are much lower than most of the high-end sunglass brands. Prices range from $35 to $80, depending on the type of glasses you order.

Polarized Lenses: I love polarized lenses. Whether it’s for driving, running, relaxing on the beach or bright, sunny days just having fun. Shady Rays offers polarized lenses on all but 2 pairs of glasses in their product lineup so if Polarized aren’t your thing you have options.
