For many people, wearing sunglasses while running is as necessary as wearing shoes. And while runners are quick to shell out lots of money for gear, the prices associated with running-specific sunglasses can be shocking.


For those who aren’t quite ready to drop more than $200 for the latest specs, it’s worth taking a look at the irreverent offerings from Goodr. You’ll find that the company features a wide array of sunglasses for runners that cost just $25.


The OG, the most popular style for runners, features enhanced silicon inserts and special grip coating to keep them in place even as you sweat.


While they’re inexpensive, they’re not cheap -- the frames are lightweight and comfortable -- and you can have a ton of fun choosing from different colors and lenses.


Those who like to stay more subdued can try out the black-framed "Whiskey Shots with Satan" or "Vincent’s Absinthe Night Terrors." (Yes, those are the names. Check out the website for the backstories).


For those who prefer a more flamboyant look, the company offers pink "Flamingos on a Booze Cruise" or the patriotic "Suck it, King George."


At just 25 bucks a pop, you can have pairs to match your mood. And no matter which you choose, you’ll get quality performance while you workout.
