I am very picky when looking for a pair of sunglasses. It's always been hard to find something that looks good and fits well. These not only look great, (I have so many compliments I love the lenses, the fit and clarity. When my best friend saw them, she wanted a pair also. I am going to get her a pair for her Birthday!
I bought a pair and they have become my "go to" pair. My fiancee would like the same style but he has a wider face and these just don't work w/ wider faces. He's willing to Blue Hawaii in another style of frame but only bc Kawika is not an option.
WOW! Just got a pair of Maui Jim "Kawika" sunglasses from the Easter Bunny yesterday. I absolutely LOVE them!!!! The world is a much more beautiful place to see now. Especially living in the bright sunny city of San Antonio Texas.
I used to work selling sunglasses in a boardwalk style mall , customers that wanted quality will step out with 3 different brands and 90 percent will close Maui jim , the other 10 percent wanted a specific style , this style is the best of both worlds light weight and great style a little pricey since is not the glass lens but I would put it side to side with any other brand including some glass lenses out there and 100 percent of the time will choose Maui , do yoursel a favor , buy one
I bought the last year. I have been into the store multiple times, as the frame loosened up on the lenses. The second time I went in, they swapped them out. However, I still have issues with the frame loosening up, so I bring them in to get them tightened, whenever I am around a Sunglass Hut. I should not have to do that for glasses that cost that much. Also, I need to clean them all the time. I love the look, lens, etc..., but they need to fix the frame.
