Adidas Adilibria Shields s Running Sunglasses Review
Adidas Adilibria Shields S
I've been wearing the Adidas Adilibria Shield Sunglasses (in the S (smaller) version) for a while now. I wear them when out running, skiing, or just hiking. And I really love these sunglasses!
Adidas says the following on the sunglasses on their website:
'With the Adilibria model for women, Adidas Eyewear demonstrates that sport and style form a perfect combination. The new Adilibria collection blends unique, feminine design with functional features from the Adidas sport performance area. Radiant colours and sweeping contours play an important roll in the overall look of these latest models.'
The sunglasses have a Decentered Vision Advantaged PC Lens, that is scratch and impact force resistant (very much needed for all these bugs flying into it when out running/skiing...I do NOT like bugs). The Nose Bridge is individually adaptaple and the sunglasses have a ventilation system, that prevents lens fogging. Adidas also added some technology that secures temple release under impact force (I have no clue how this works, but it sure sounds fancy).
I really like the fit of these sunglasses. They don't slip and they truly have a pressure free fit. Actually, within minutes after putting them on, I don't even notice I'm wearing them anymore. I had these on during the Swiss Alpine Marathon, and didn't feel them at all. And, for me, that's a good thing!
I also really like the lens of these glasses. I wear contacts, and therefore need a lens that really filters the sun out and keeps the wind from blowing into my eyes. And this lens does. Another good thing about these glasses!
And last, but not least, they come in cute colours! I have the Copper with a contrast mirror lens, (picture above) but they also come in for example a very cute matt ivory, and even in a gold colour! Adidas knows what a girl wants! :)
The gold colour - maybe just a bit too much, but very pretty!
OK, it's out. I love these glasses. :) They're not cheap, though. They retail for about $130, but you might find them on sale for less. However, for that amount of money, you do get great sunglasses, that are perfect for running, skiing, etc. and that have a lens that truly gives your eyes some rest (no redness at all!).
