More often than not, when we’re in the market for new frames we tend go for something more urban than sporty. But an increasing number of sport brands are now designing frames that offer cutting-edge style along with excellent ergonomics.

The name may be associated with a high-end sports car, but it’s equally known as a prestigious eyewear brand. Inspired by the celebrated Panamericana car race, world-famous Carrera eyeglasses are defined by a sporty design and flamboyant look. Introduced in the 1950s, Carrera glasses have built a cult following and are worn by some of the biggest stars in the world, including Rihanna. Their signature style is evident in their futuristic lines and state-of-the-art materials. A popular complement to this ultra-cool athletic look is a satin bomber jacket.
Spy, California lives here

Born in California in the 1990s, the Spy eyewear brand initially drew aficionados of the more edgy sports: surfing, inline skating, mountain biking and snowboarding. It’s no surprise, therefore, that the brand soon became known for its unparalleled manufacturing methods for lenses and frames alike. Its collaborations with well-known athletes have also made it a household name in the sports world. Since its founding, Spy has expanded its line of products to include prescription glasses offering the same sporty, avant-garde look and exceptional ergonomics. People love them for their relaxed and ultra-chic style.

Our favourite is the Nike Flexon, which, as its name suggests, is unique not only in its flexibility but also its ability to adapt to the shape of the face. Outdoor enthusiasts rejoice!
Rebel, a classic
