I thought I was one of just a small handful of people who have discovered Goodr’s $25 running sunglasses. Then I showed up for running club track night and saw at least half a dozen other runners wearing Goodr.
Goodr makes—by far—the most comfortable, functional, and affordable pair of sunglasses I’ve ever tried.
I ordered my first pair through the Runkeeper Store: Runkeeper Blue. There is a tiny Runkeeper logo on one of the lenses. I’ve had these for more than a year, and have probably gone for 200 runs in them. No signs of wear whatsoever.
I don’t know how Goodr does it, but these glasses just do not slip or bounce, no matter how sweaty I am, no matter how hot it is, no matter how long I run. And they don’t feel heavy, either.
Recently Goodr was kind to send me a couple pairs to write up for review.
First, there is the style called Rabbit Egg Hunt with Zombie Jesus. (Is it an overly charitable or wishful-thinking-influenced read of the title to see a faith-filled allusion to the resurrection?) They look awesome:
They’re like the Runkeeper Blue, only the frames are translucent. Goodr offers polarized (glare-reducing) lenses (“because you deserve the best”), UV400 protection, and the hip shades only weigh 22 grams.
I regret to inform you that the style is currently sold out, but the product page gives you a place to sign up to be notified when they’re back in stock.
Goodr also sent me a pair from their new line for big heads. The regular size fits on my large cranium just fine, but these are good too, Bigfoot’s Fernet Sweats:
The “BFG” line is wider, longer, bigger, “for all you runners with gargantuan craniums the size of Sputnik.” I do have a large head, as previously mentioned, but the regular size is still fine. These larger ones ($10 more, so $35) felt HUGE when I first put them on, but they work great, too. They’ve also got gradient lenses!
Head on over to Goodr and check out all they have to offer. I highly recommend these glasses for runners (and non-runners). I wear them daily.
