Honestly, aviators would be great if they were actually good for, you know, anything.不过，虽然一双好壮志凌云风格的色调看起来慢动作锐利，设计本身不适合高输出活动（although there are exceptions).
So when Maho Shades, a 4-year-old company founded in the British Virgin Islands, boasted it had a pair of aviators made to run in, I had to try them out.
当然，飞行员设计的一些元素不会适合每个运动员。但马霍建成Sundance aviators— and select other models — with special nose and ear pads it claims actually help the frames stay put as you sweat.
Since stay-at-home orders have eased in Colorado, I’ve taken the Sundance aviators on 5-mile runs, bike commutes, and other sweat-drenched outdoor workouts.
So, what is Zuma Fit? Well, it’s actually kind of wild. The best description I came across is a “dry adhesive.” Essentially, Maho set out to make sunglass frame grips that mimic the way a gecko’s feet stick to a vertical, or inverted, surface.
To do this, the brand wraps the nose and ear pads with a mold comprising “nano-molded synthetic setae,” the same structures in cute little gecko feet. And while the science goes deep — it relies on Van der Waals forces — suffice to say that there are solid principles at work and the development of synthetic setae has promise for myriad applications.
That’s great, but does it work to keep sunglasses on your face as you bounce around? To a certain extent, yes. You can definitely shake these off, sweaty or not. But for hour-long runs, city bike rides, and even plyometric exercises like running stairs, they worked.

Although no activity jounced the Sundance aviators off my face, I did have to take them off a few times to clean sweat from the top of the lenses. This is because the top inside corner of the lenses lightly contacts the top of the bridge of my nose. And if I see even a hint of a smudge inside my lenses, I have to clean them off.
That said, this wasn’t a huge problem and it’s something I deal with on virtually every pair of glasses I run in — except for高端的专用太阳镜这完全专注于性能和更低的全能风格。
Maho Sundance Aviator Sunglasses: The Verdict
Right now, theSundance aviatorsare my all-around favorite glasses. They certainly aren’t most technical running or biking glasses that I own, but they’re the sharpest. The fact that they work like little lizard paws sticking to my face only adds a little versatility to their style.
For serious athletes, look for more technical options. But for those who want solidly built aviators that won’t slide off during a volleyball montage, these are a perfect fit.
