Not sure what these are all about, pretty funky though...

Apparently they're glasses designed for runners, made by Nike, used by olympians & such. Cheers nige :)

they're by Nike. they were used by at least one or two of the US Olympic track (sprint) team in the 200? Olympics. the idea being that they stay stable on the face whilst running. niiiice.

They were also used by a European tour golfer called Jarmo Sandelin.

"Jarmo Sandelin has left the crocodile-skin shoes, the $6,000 US jacket and the form-fitting, see-through shirts at home. He has trimmed his absurdly long 52-inch driver down to a merely ridiculous 50 inches.
After all, the 32-year-old Ryder Cup rookie is at The Country Club this week to play for the European team, not to widen his repute as the continent's most eccentric new star." goes on to mention his bizarre collection of belts but not his sunglasses...

found 'em at last, they are Oakley overthetop Sunglasses http://www.sunglassesgiant.com/oaovtopsu.html - way too expensive for me and cyclists who've reviewed them don't rate them at all...
