2018 Buyer's Guide

Spy Whistler

The Draw: Post-Race Panache

Call these active-lifestyle specs. They’re meant to make a style statement—no sporty, grippy bits on the nose or temples here. But the Whistlers have the nice and somewhat surprising ability to stay put well enough on an impromptu run or ride. Testers enjoyed the Spy-branded “mood-boosting Happy Lens,” featuring a tiny happy face on the upper left-hand side of the left lens and the strange ability to turn everything rosy (even though we tested a cool green lens) on the ugliest of overcast beach days. Stash them in your car for a post-workout stroll.

$120; 4 frame colors, 7 lens options
