What are Goodr sunglasses?

Goodr sunglasses was started by runner Stephen Lease when he found a gap in the market.

Sick of paying for overpriced, high-performance sunglasses, Stephen saw a huge opportunity for stylish, fun, functional and affordable shades in the running space.

Since being founded, Goodr sunglasses have expanded and the brand launched in 2,500 stores in over 20 countries.

Goodr sunglasses have also won several awards, including Runner’s World Gear of the Year and the Women’s Health Fitness Award.

Are Goodr sunglasses good for running?

All Goodr sunglasses come with a non-slip coating which helps to keep the frames on your nose instead of sliding down your face.

No matter how fast your run is, these sunglasses will help to stop the bounce!

They are also made of scratch-resistant material which is really useful when you’re outdoors a lot either walking or running.

So if you’re sick of spending lots of money on high performance running sunglasses, then these may just be the perfect option for you!
