Shane is one of the newest people at our Europtics Cherry Creek location in Denver, CO. Don’t take this to mean he’s new to the eyewear industry, though!

Now that we’re fairly squarely into sunglass season, I wanted to talk about some really cool sunglasses from Maui Jim.
As you may already know, Maui Jim only makes polarized lenses. They’re great for blocking glare, and some of the most comfortable lenses out there. They are bad for pilots, however, because of the polarization.
Maui Jim makes a line of drilled rimless sunglasses with beta titanium frames. The largest is the Ka’anapali, and it fits larger heads very well. The beta titanium temples are hingeless, so they gently grip the sides of your head, and stay in place very well. They’re the lightest glasses you can wear, and have a nice 8 base wrap to protect your eyes from the sun all the way around. The shape is a modified aviator, and follows the lines of your cheekbones well, to give you as much protection as possible.
These sunglasses truly are a wonderful addition to any summer wardrobe.
