||FROM OUR INBOX:
“I'm a golfer and outside quite a
bit, I wore my previous glasses on and off the course. I am so impressed with
these glasses that I gave all my other pairs away to family. The view is crystal
clear, like I have never seen in a pair of sunglasses, it's unreal! The
clarity is matched by no one else, period. When the sun is at it's
brightest they dull down the intense light from the sun, especially when on the
water. Kaenon is the best bar none! I didn't even mention how strong and sturdy
the glasses are, how great the styles are and how many there are to choose from.
Keep making great stuff!” –Jason Williams (via
“Last Sunday, on a morning long
run, I fell on steel grating while wearing my Kaenon Trade
sunglasses. I was sent to the emergency room via ambulance and
sustained 46 stitches to my face alone. My surgeon told me that the
sunglasses most likely saved my eye! Also miraculously they sustained
very few scratches. The sunglasses were my guardian angel! I want everyone to
know that they not only look good but are an important safety precaution...with
style! Thank You Kaenon!" –Linda Miller (via Email)
