    Promising review: "I’m convinced that these are the world’s best sunglasses. They’re so cute, they stay on my face well. I’ve worn these all around the world, they've been shoved in a backpack and crunches in pockets and have come back looking great. Seriously today, I put them through the washing machine — guess what, they look brand new. Great quality and cute glasses!!!" —haileyT

    Promising review: "These sunglasses are absolutely adorable! They arrived exactly as pictured with a small cloth for cleaning the lenses safely. I love that they have such a classic style but with a slightly unique touch unlike anything I've seen before. I'm surprised how sturdy they feel for such a reasonable price! I really expected these to feel cheap, but they truly seem to be made to last. I would highly recommend this product. I loved them so much that I purchased another pair of Sojos sunglasses immediately after I received them and was not disappointed by the second pair either! I don't think I will be looking anywhere else for sunglasses in the future; these are perfect." —Elisabeth Paulson

    Get them from Amazon for $13.88 (available in eight colors).

    3. A unisex pair you better keep track of before your S.O. (or friend or sibling for that matter) walks away with them...

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I got a pair of these sunglasses at the last minute before a trip to the desert. They are stylish and great quality for the price point. They fit me well, were comfortable to wear, and were definitely polarized. I dropped them a bunch of times, as I tend to do with sunglasses, and they survived the falls each time with little scratching (if scratched at all). I also have a bad habit of losing sunglasses, but at this price, I could easily replace them guilt-free if needed. I only wish they came with a case." —Zach Collins

    Get them from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in 19 styles).

    4. An olive pair you'll keep with you at all times so you can put them on and tell everyone you see, "~Olive~ these SO much".

    Promising review: "For the price, these are great sunglasses in my opinion. I don't expect them to be indestructible, or scratchproof or anything, but they are a nice pair of glasses. I have gotten compliments on them already and would recommend them to others. Just remember, you aren't buying a $100 pair of glasses, these are a $10 pair." —Tennyson Schwartz

I have bought a lot of sunglasses and these are by far the best. They are sturdy and feel solid. The hinges are made in such a way that they do not break after a month of daily use. They come with a very nice hard carrying case, a soft travel bag, and a lens cleaning cloth. The outer box is so well made that it won't be crushed during shipping. I am back to buy several more pairs. No need to shell out an outrageous $200 for sunglasses with these as a much less expensive option." —Amy is Always Reading

    Get them from Amazon for $15.29+ (available in 14 styles).

    Promising review: "This is the best value I've ever experienced with a pair of sunglasses. From the instant I opened the box, the packaging was great, the experience unboxing them was awesome, the included accessories were all there, and of course, the product was fantastic quality. It came with a nice, magnetic closing hard case, a soft bag, and a proper lens cleaning cloth. The build quality is great, and the glasses are both very light and comfortable. I hate buying sunglasses without being able to try them, but for the cost, I figured I'd give it a shot, and these absolutely did not disappoint. Oh, and yes, they're polarized. They compete with other glasses I have that costs 10-12X as much. I highly recommend them." —Joe

The sunglasses themselves are lightweight and well made. I will definitely be purchasing from Sungait again. These would make great gifts too! They arrived quickly, and the packaging was exceptional. It comes with a cloth bag and cleaning cloth. Overall, I have had a really great experience with these! For the quality and price, these can't be beat." —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $12.74 (available in 19 styles).

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love these glasses and cannot believe how inexpensive they are!! They're a new take on the vintage cat-eye look, so they're not quite as pointy or as small as the originals. The frames are a bit larger, slightly more modern, yet still, visibly cat eye-shaped. I feel so cool wearing these. :) They go perfectly with my rockabilly attire. I would highly recommend these!" —TD

They FIT great, LOOK great, FEEL great, and at a fraction of designer sunglasses, you don't have to worry about caring or protecting them. Just grab them and GO!" —TANIA LENTH

    Get them from Amazon for $14.95 (available in 63 styles).

    Promising review: "These are really cute and flattering sunglasses! I have a very small head, and I often have trouble finding sunglasses that don't look ridiculous on me. These are great, and they are very protective in even very bright sunlight. I bought these exact same glasses twice because I lost the first pair and wanted to get the exact same pair again. I love these." —bheckel

Plus, they give a pair of glasses to someone in need. That's a win, win, WIN!

They are a little bigger than I thought they would be, but I'm very pleased with the overall style, construction, and materials. I'm sure I'll be a SUNGAIT customer for a long time. They could easily charge more for these glasses, but I'm glad they don't!" —A. Smith

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "Let me start off by saying, I am rough on my shades. I'm talking the best ones last a month, and the worse ones a week, at best. These shades have survived three months worth of adventure, from being stepped on (fixed with a bit of glue and fishing string) to become my child's favorite thing to teeth on. I wear them for four-plus hours every day. They're hands-down the best shades I've ever owned and blow the $100+ shades out of the water. They're my fishing shades, driving shades, and lounging-in-the-sun shades. I could not have asked for a better pair." —nathan

    Get them from Amazon for $29

    Promising review: "I would definitely recommend this product. This is my second time buying them, and at first, I was skeptical because I have had bad experiences with fake Ray-Bans. However, if it says sold by Amazon LLC then you are good. Any other seller I wouldn't trust." —Amazon Customer

    Promising review: "I've been a huge fan of these. I have a massive head and had a bunch of sunglasses crack after a few days of use. But these fit perfectly and are comfortable. I was looking for a set that were light, would stick on when playing tennis and other sports, and were dark enough so that on bright days you aren't squinting. These definitely fit the bucket. I've had them for over a year now, and they are still in great condition with no scratches, despite not being in a case or carefully placed." —Daum
