The Charles Sunglasses


Classic style meets modern optical innovation; these running sunglasses are handmade in Italy.

Comes in Gold, Gray, Wine, Black and Brown


Framed for Fast

Marrying a classic silhouette with modern optical technology, our Charles sunglasses for men and women are stylish at any pace, and work just as well on a first-light tempo as they do when out for brunch after the session is done.

A Modern Classic

We wanted to find a balance between performance and good taste, creating running sunglasses that would perform flawlessly at any pace but wouldn't scream racing when stood still. Crafted in northern Italy, the Charles has been inspired by our daily runs along the Charles River, combining high-quality frames and optics with our understanding of a runner’s wide-ranging needs. So the Charles looks great, feels great, and stays put, even when the sweat starts flowing.


The Charles frame is handcrafted by three family-owned factories in Northern Italy. The Charles is made with TR90 polymer plastic – produced with Swiss technology as a thermoplastic material that is incredibly durable, flexible and adjustable. The result is a frame that’s hypoallergenic, holds its shape after contouring to your face, and is resistant to damage because of its ability to bend under pressure. Most importantly for runners, The Charles is extraordinarily lightweight, with a barely-there feel that stays put at high speeds.

On the Charles

The Charles are available in several colorways that correspond with different routes we’ve mapped along the river from the Trackhouse, our headquarters on Newbury Street. In the frame’s case, we've included a hand-drawn map of the Charles River by Owen Delaney for the next time you’re in Boston looking to run.
