Shady Rays X-Series Product Review

Summer time is coming! As a teacher I am counting down the last days of the school year.  With summer, comes more summer runs with my high school cross country girls.  So, of course, I jumped at the chance to try out a new pair/brand of sunglasses.


The Shady Ray X-series sunglasses have a nice, athletic look.  Simple and sleek, in my opinion.  Some other key features include

  • Polarized lenses
  • Shatter-resistant
  • Durable Construction with lifetime craftsmanship
  • Brand that supports a great cause, giving 10 meals to fight hunger with each order placed.

My Experience

img_2542My first adventure out with these sunglasses included coaching at one of our Varsity track meets.  I absolutely loved the polarized lenses.  Unlike other brands, my vision wasn’t discolored in these polarized lenses.  They have a really nice look and they fit well with or without my hat.  Of course, it rained like the whole next week and I was anxiously waiting the opportunity to get some outside runs in these bad boys.

I was able to get 5 runs in them outside, prior to this review.  The glasses are extremely light weight and offer wrap around protection without impeding your vision.  I have a tiny head, and these glasses did sit a bit wide on me.  I was nervous they would move or bounce on the run, but that was absolutely not the case.  They stayed put well.

I chose the black frames, as I thought they looked the best in the online store.  Other BibRave Pro athletes chose the clear frames and seeing them in person, I think I like those ones a little bit better.  The online image isn’t as neat looking

  1. I’m not going to lie, I hadn’t heard of Shady Rays. I have just checked out their website off the back of reading this post and I’ll def keep them in mind when I’m next looking for sunglasses.
