Shady Rays

Disclaimer: I received Shady Rays Sunglasses 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 sunglasses…but as soon as I started I found that I could no longer go outside in the sun without them. Weird what we get used to right? I guess I was just ok with squinting until I realized there was a much better option.

Of course that all happened quite a while ago. The hunt for cute, functional, and durable sunglasses has been on since then.

Hello Shady Rays

When I got the opportunity to try out the Shady Rays as a BibRavePro I was really excited because I had heard great things…and also because they actually looked like sunglasses I would want to wear out in public even when I wasn’t running.

Form and function in one package is always worth a try right?


I. Love. These. Sunglasses.

If you know me in real life you have seen me wear my new Shady Rays every dang where. They go with every outfit. They are comfortable. When I am not wearing them I can put them on top of my head without getting tangled in my hair. Ladies. You know what I am asking about. Some of you dudes probably do too right?

These have quickly become my ride or die sunglasses that I keep with me at all times.


Yup. The Shady Rays have it all. Running with these sunglasses is fantastic. It is freaking hot in Texas already which means a lot of sweat. Yesterday I Tok them for a spin in the heat while pushing the stroller. Double the sweat and still no slipping. Nothing bothers me more than sunglasses that are bouncing on my face while I run or slipping down my nose. I have a big German nose. That shouldn’t be a problem but somehow it seems to be much more common than it should be.

The polarization and level of darkness from the Shady Rays is perfect. There is no glare and it blocks out enough sunlight to keep my eyes happy without making things a little too dark.


Did you know that if you lose or break your Shady Rays, the company will replace them? (up to two times) You just pay shipping and handling. How cool is that? I am hoping nothing ever happens to mine. But is nice to know I have a backup plan if something does!


My new Shady Rays sunglasses are fantastic and I am completely in love. I highly recommend giving them a shot if you are looking for a do-it-all pair of sunglasses. Not only are they great for running, but they look good enough to wear anywhere!

Have questions about my experience with the Shady Rays sunglasses? Let me know!
