Anti-Fog Sunglasses for Running
Why the Top Runners Prefer Maui Jim
Why do your sunglasses fog up when you run? It’s simple science. Your face is hotter than your glasses, and when the air from your face hits those glasses, the moisture it contains turns to liquid — resulting in what you see as “fog” on the lenses.
That’s WHY it happens. But you want to know WHAT to do to stop it, right? The good news is that you don’t have to stop wearing sunglasses. You just have to choose the right anti-fog sunglasses for running.
One of the reasons Maui Jim polarized sunglasses are a preferred choice of runners — including professionals like Olympian Meb Keflezighi — is that our proprietary lens coatings help eliminate this annoying problem. An oleophobic treatment, in particular, fights against fogging while making smudges and fingerprints easier to wipe away on both the front and back of the lens. Our lenses are also waterproof, helping shed sweat, water and snow.
When you choose Maui Jim, you get more than just anti-fog sunglasses for running, though. You also get great eye protection, the right fit and a wide choice of styles to fit your tastes and lifestyle. Our polarized sunglasses eliminate 100% of glare and harmful UV rays — important anytime you’re out for a run, sunny weather or not. They’re also crafted for a snug, comfortable fit, so they won’t weigh you down or constantly slide down your nose as you run.
