Comfortable and featherlight, Smith Parallel Max sunglasses seem to disappear on your face with a superb wrap fit that won't slip even when kicking for the line. Interchangeable, optically correct lenses eliminate visual distortions and feature a coating to repel moisture and smudges; nose and temple pads grip even better when exposed to moisture and sweat.

Customer Reviews

Comments: i ordered and returned a few pairs of running sunglasses before i finally decided to spend a bit more and order these.  i guess i have a larger face because everything else ive tried was way too small (i'm 6'1" 185).  these fit perfectly though, and they dont move at all while running or biking.  i only tried the "max" version and i assume they are a little better at keeping the sun out than the basic version. definitely recommended.

Comments: They don't move around when I sweat and they are almost half the price of Oakley's that have polarized lenses.  The down side is they fog up pretty easily.  I don't know if that would be a problem with other people and other sunglasses as these are the only sunglasses I have worn regularly when running.
