Testimonials & Reviews

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 Facebook)

“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)
