EDITOR’S PICK – SUMMER SUNGLASSES
Last, but certainly not least, the Revo Huddie comes in as my personal favorite glasses of the season. This is my first pair of Revo sunglasses, and I’m impressed. Classic shape, sharp optics, and they don’t move at all when I wear them on runs, rides, or any other outdoor aerobic activities. Great fit for women as well – my wife steals these all the time!
Best for: Smaller faces
