I was in a store over the weekend buying some shoes, and saw the strangest pair of sunglasses I’d ever seen. There were the typical lenses in front, but nothing on the side – No ear pieces. Instead there was a piece that went up over your head that held ’em in place.
If you can’t visualize it, imagine taking a pair of earmuffs and turning them 90Ã‚°, so one of the earpieces is about where your nose is. Then change the earpiece in front to a set of sunglasses. The earpiece in back then becomes a rubber or foam pad.
I searched around and tried to find some on the net, but couldn’t. When I searched on “Runner’s Glasses” I got 14,000 hits.
Initially, I thought this was the dumbest thing I had ever seen. I asked the clerk what the heck they were. She explained that they were for runners. Normal sunglasses would slide off their noses, but these would stay put.
Later I got to thinking – Would this work for safety glasses? Seems like mine are always sliding down my nose, especially when I’m sweaty.
I can think of 2 drawbacks. First, it seems like it would make it harder to wear a hat. (I feel naked without one) ((Don’t try to visualize this at home))
Second is that it would obviously take some time to get used to just like any new idea. Can you imagine the crap you’d get from co-workers initially?
Just curious what y’all thought of the idea……..
