Testimonials & Reviews

FROM OUR INBOX:
“The Arlo's were my first pair of Kaenon's, purchased in Baton Rouge. I tried on every pair in the display, walked outside and was amazed every single time. I personally own 10 pairs of different brand sunglasses and this pair out-performs every single pair I own. I brought them home and the next day my brother, my best friend and another friend’s father all went out and got a pair. Every where I go and people say, “I need a good pair of sunglasses” I offer them to try mine on and go outside and see the world in higher quality. I love my Arlo's and just purchased another pair of Kaenon's.” – Nic Huges (via Kaenon.com)

“My friend got a pair of Sequence and I loved them so much on him, I had to get a pair myself. I wouldn't have thought that the same pair would work so well on both of us, but they did. He has them in the grey color and I have them in gold with copper lenses. The clarity is unreal and the style is awesome, looks good on men and women.” – Sam Brown (via Kaenon.com)
