Don’t compromise when it comes to athletic gear.
Randolph sunglasses are built for the extraordinary. Our lenses are made with proprietary SkyTec™ lens technology for optimal clarity. All lenses are distortion free with anti-reflective coating and 100% UVA/UVB protection to give a visual edge to athletes.
Every pair of Randolph sunglasses comes with a lifetime guarantee on the solder joints. They’re tough to break, but if they do, we’ll replace them. Randolph’s sunglasses for athletes provide superior clarity and durability, whether you’re skimming over the water or summiting your favorite mountain.
Sunglasses for Athletes
Randolph sunglasses are perfect for seizing the day.
While outdoors, you also need supreme eye protection. Polarized lenses cut the glare off bright snow and reflective water. Meanwhile, full UVA/UVB protection blocks the sun’s harshest rays. Randolph lenses are coated with a water and oil-proof layer to help keep debris from obscuring your vision, whether on snowy slopes or riding through mud. Our frames are plated at 5x the industry standard for baked durability with precious metals so you can look good while doing your best.
Browse a variety of lens colors to choose your favorite level of contrast. American Tan provides contrast enhancement and depth perception superior to other lens colors for a sharp and crisp view, even on cloudy days. Another popular lens color, AGX, offers a ‘relaxing’ green lens selectively highlights the soothing green/yellow wavelengths of the light spectrum to reduce eye fatigue and improve visual performance.
Take your Randolphs around the world and back again. They’re built to last a lifetime. Or two.
Sunglasses for Skiers
Skiing means snow, and snow creates harsh, blinding glare that could ruin your run on the powder. While many skiers wear goggles for gliding down hills despite the elements, downtime on the slopes and moments in between call for essential eyewear as well.
In addition to polarization to cut through excessive glare, you want your sunglasses to block extra white light from slipping over your cheekbones or temples. When wearing a hat or helmet, many pairs of sunglasses can feel like they’re in the way. You will need sunglasses that slide comfortably underneath, which means you need the bayonet temple design. The contours on the Concorde make it a great start, but you should also consider the Intruder.
Sunglasses for Bikers
Polarization and UVA/UVB protection frees you to spend hours on your bike without worrying about eye fatigue.
Sunglasses for Fishermen & Water Sports
You may have heard that our frames were worn in the 2017 Baywatch movie by guys like Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron. Something about our shades makes them look great on the water.
Don’t let the water and its harsh reflections interfere with your performance. Get polarization and anti-reflective features from the Aviator II and Concorde to handle the water without worry. Your sturdy frames are also corrosion-resistant, so you’re protected even if your sunglasses drop into the water.
Sunglasses for Driving & Motorsports
When navigating an ATV over a fallen log or a dirt bike up a steep trail, you need your vision to be as clear as it is on the highway. Keeping your vision unobscured—and your eyes fresh—for hours at a time demands rugged frames like the Archer or classic Aviators.
The premium finishes make it easy to clear away splattered mud since our proprietary SkyTec™ lens technology contains lens coatings that repel oil and dirt.
Sunglasses for Golfers
Randolph sunglasses will be your perfect companion on the green. Standing in the sun for hours at a time calls for durable, lasting eyewear to bring on your day trips time and time again.
Not to mention, they’ll look great with the rest of your outfit. A perfect combination is to balance your aviators with chinos and a simple polo. For your ideal pair of Randolphs, check out the Concorde, Intruder, or Sportsman. Maybe the clarity behind premium eyewear will be what it takes to shave off a few strokes.
Sunglasses for Mountain Climbers
The higher you climb, the harsher the UV radiation. Protect your vision and choose a style that will stay on your face, such as the P3 with cable temples.
Consider your options in lens colors for a tint with true color reception without distortion—a crucial feature when reaching for your next crag. Our American Tan tint is great for depth perception. Consider finding a pair with cable temples so that your frames wrap around the back of your ear. When you’re packing your harness and rope, don’t forget eyewear is just as essential.
Find the Perfect Fit for Athletes
We’ve recommended some frames for each sport, but you should check our guide on facial shapes and beards to ensure your frames will suit your style. Once you have your style picked, remember to wear your shades year-round, as the sun’s harsh rays can damage your eyes even in cold weather. Randolph sunglasses are built to last.
