The Best Gifts for Runners
UV Blocking Sunglasses from Maui Jim
Shopping for someone who loves to run? It can be hard to find the perfect gift, especially when most runners understandably prefer to pick out and try on their own gear. What’s the answer? One of the best gifts for runners is UV blocking sunglasses — specifically, polarized running sunglasses from Maui Jim. Here’s why everyone from weekend joggers to Olympian Meb Keflezighi are fans:
- Snug and comfortable: No runner wants to deal with sunglasses that pinch the nose or ears or that slip and slide down a sweaty face. Maui Jim’s UV blocking sunglasses strike the ideal balance — not too tight or too loose. In fact, when you choose a style made with our light-as-a-feather MauiPure® LT material, your favorite runner will likely forget they’re wearing running sunglasses at all.
- Eye protection: Runners’ eyes are often exposed to sunlight for long stretches. Maui Jim UV blocking sunglasses prevent 100% of the sun’s harmful rays from getting through and virtually eliminate glare. They’re just as important on a run as sunscreen!
- High contrast: Trail runners especially need a clear line of sight to avoid tripping over obstacles. Maui Jim’s polarized sunglasses enhance depth perception and heighten contrast so runners can exercise safely — and enjoy the view along the way. Many styles are available in prescription, too.
- No fog: Some runners avoid sunglasses altogether because they fog up when they run. Maui Jim’s proprietary lens coatings help eliminate this annoying problem. An oleophobic treatment 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.
