I have one rule in life and that's to never go full Bono.
After reviewing the Zeal Boone sunglasses we realized their functionality is really where they shine. I wanted to test the performance attributes Zeal infused into the Boones by trying them in various athletic endeavors. On hot sweaty days either mountain biking or trail running the rubberized nose pieces and ear pieces really kept the Boones planted firmly on my noggin. Also, their super lightweight but durable frames made it so they never bounced up and down on the bridge of my nose and never hurt the tops of my ears after a long ride. These could very well be your favorite dawn and dusk sunglasses when you need enhanced contrast and some help in the depth perception department. Think low light downhill trail running… these help with that light.

Shape and Stylings
The shape of the glasses are a classy sporty look with a slightly wider frame. Many friends tried on the Boones and they were always a tiny bit wide for liking. If you have a wider face than what we have, these could fit you perfect. The lens of the sunglasses may be the biggest detractor for some due to its lighter tint. It gives you the I can see your eyes look that some people may not like. They still boast a high quality plant-based polarized lens, so if you are looking for something with a light tint, these will likely work great.
Zeal makes prescription sunglasses as well, that has potential to really change the outdoor recreation game. I need to get my hands on some of those for review! No contacts were harmed in the making of this article.
