Summer is in full flow and many CrossFit athletes across the globe are showing off in new sunglasses from different brands, all with funky, large lenses and bold colours.
We're here to show you which athletes are wearing which sunglasses and where you can buy sunglasses. We've also suggested alternative CrossFit sunglasses as some of these are quite pricey.
Sunglasses For Working out
As the sun shines outside many CrossFit gyms all over the globe, the need for sunglasses for working out has never been higher and with sunglasses brands growing into the CrossFit industry we've seen many more athletes being sponsored today.
But why do you need sunglasses for working out?
Well you might find traditional sunglasses to be
Less comfortable on your face when sweating or as your body temperature rises
Not designed to hold on to your face as you run, jump, lift and move
Only block out part of the sun with smaller frames
Less likely to offer UV protection
Boring in style and design!
CrossFit Sunglasses seem to have solved these issues by coming up with some radical designs for athletes.
For example, Blenders Eyewear have come up with some really bold designs and have partnered with athletes like the Buttery Bros to promote their sunglasses.
What are the best CrossFit Sunglasses?
We've gone through the various different brands and athletes out there with their Sunglasses for CrossFit and have picked out the ones we like the best, just for you.
Buttery Bros Sunglasses
The famous Buttery Bros pair, Marston Sawyers and Heber Cannon wear A LOT of sunglasses. That's because they're sponsored by Blenders Eyewear! They go through loads of pairs almost every episode!
Going places? ‘Dark Bloom,’ part of the ‘Exposé’ collection, are wraparound sunglasses that put you in high gear. The smoke PureBlend lens comes either polarized or non-polarized (your choice!) and offers superior optical color and clarity. Plus, the semi-rimless frame is lightweight, durable, and finished in matte rubberized black. //
‘Future Ruler’ is made to help you bring your best. Part of the ‘Exposé’ collection, these oversized wraparound sunglasses sport a sunset rainbow PureBlend lens for all-world optical color, clarity, and durability. And with your choice of polarized or non-polarized, these are the sports shades that ready you for everything that’s ahead. //
Mat Fraser Sunglasses
Mat Fraser is classic in his tastes and just wears a classic wayfairer and you can get a pair from Blenders Eyewear or alternatively just from Amazon!
In space, no one can hear you scream. But here on Earth, the oohs, ahhs, and general fanfare from all those that see you sport the ‘Deep Space Polarized X2’ shades is gonna be heard loud and clear. Get ready to pull everyone around you into your orbit with these lookers, which seem doused in an aesthetic ripped from a black hole (if such a thing were possible). The matte black frame and polarized smoke lenses are matched with stealthy gunmetal temple stripes for a style that’s positively stellar. //

CrossFit Sunglasses Without Frames
We've seen a load more CrossFit sunglasses without frames that are becoming more and more popular with athletes. We think this is because not only do they look good but also they protect the eyes better from the sun and they stay on the face more.
CrossFit Sunglasses without frames often look way better than traditional sunglasses so we think they're the next big thing!
