With so many style choices for sunglasses, it’s easy to overlook the fact that the frames can do more than just hold the lenses and look nice. Nike, however, makes sure to add features to its frames that, in part, are intended to make the glasses functionally better than alternatives. Of course, it hasn’t forgotten that good sunglass frames have to be stylish. Buyers can always look forward to a sporty style from Nike.
All of these things hold true for the popular Nike Brazen Prescription Sunglasses. They project an image of an active person, are sleek enough to avoid looking like safety glasses, and have an anti-fog feature.
These sunglasses aren’t very big overall, so they leave much of the face exposed. This also leaves users with plenty of room to wear ski masks without having to worry about the mask or other face covering scratching the lenses. Nike has made these glasses with skiing and water sports in mind, so it’s important that they work with any associated equipment.
As with many of Nike’s frames, these have wide temples. This isn’t just a style choice; it’s done to help stop glare from coming in from the sides. Nike knows that when users are actively engaged in a sport, they can’t just turn their heads to stop this glare. Instead, the glasses have to do all of the work.
The Brazen frame has one notable special feature: A ventilated nose piece. This is meant to help prevent fogging of the lenses. The nose piece is made of a rubbery material that is very comfortable. It, according to reviewers, has only one drawback: It’ll melt if left in a hot car on a summer day. Users should be sure to take their glasses out of the car on sunny days to prevent this from happening.
Another feature that’s standard with Nike frames is vinyl construction. Vinyl can be made more thickly than metal without becoming too heavy, so it’s best for sports glasses. Nike’s frames are always thick enough to provide the durability needed to stand up to active use.
As with any other glasses frame, pretty much any lens style will fit. This, however, doesn’t mean the lenses are all the same. For these glasses, it’s often best to choose Transitions lenses. These lenses turn clear when indoors, but develop their “sunglass” shading when actually in the sun.
The reason it’s a good idea to use these lenses in Nike glasses is that these frames look good enough to want to wear them even when not outside. By choosing Transitions treatment for the lenses, wearers can be comfortable in all situations without the need to buy two pairs of glasses. Doing so also eliminates the problem of having two sets of glasses and then losing one.
Which other lens features to choose is another thing to consider. Polarized lenses eliminate the sort of glare that comes off of the ground or the surface of water, so they’re great for people who buy the Brazen frame for sporting use. This frame is intended for use in skiing and water sports, and both of these activities involve dealing with a lot of surface glare.
For people who buy the glasses for their style value and expect to do little or no actual skiing or water activities, standard neutral gray anti-UV lenses should work well. This color provides the most realistic view.
