Review: Kaenon Sunglasses

Fifty Sense Seal of Approval

Derived from a Polynesian word meaning free, Kaenon (pronounced: KAY-nun) was founded in 2001 by two brothers who wanted to create a better sunglass. The sunglasses Kaenon created were quickly adopted by world-class athletes ranging from sailing to golf, from baseball to fishing. However, unlike other sport sunglass brands available at the time, athletes did not remove their sunglasses as they left the field. They discovered that, for the first time, their “lifestyle” sunglass performed just as well as their previously worn “sport performance” sunglass, both on and off the field of play.

Polarized Driver

Style meets function in this classic sunglass by Kaenon. Inspired by the traditional aviator Kaenon adds their sophistication and technology to create a pair of sunglasses perfect for just about every occasion.

They were worn on a full day of urban exploration and stood up to the test perfectly! They are lightweight and incredibly comfortable to wear all day. The nose pads and acetate temple tips kept them in place, whether exploring on foot, bicycling to the market, driving through crazy streets or relaxing at an outdoor café enjoying a latte!

They sport the SR-91 polarized lens, which offers razor-sharp clarity and impact resistance. They are very durable which tremendously important for sunglasses in my life!

They are classic with a tomboy ruggedness and superior comfort.


It is no surprise that the Burnet sunglasses are one of Kaenon’s most popular sunglasses. A modern take on the throw-back style features 8-base SR-91 polarized lenses for 100% UV protection. The SR-91 is Kaenon’s answer to all the shortcomings of existing polarized lenses. It is the only lens on the market that combines razor-sharp clarity, impact-resistance and glare reduction all in one ultra-lightweight and durable lens.

This classic style can easily be worn by both women and men and is the smaller version of the BURNY. Most people have a pair of sunglasses that they wear while active that have a more performance quality to them and then switch to a more stylish pair for everyday wear. Thanks to Keanon you only need one pair. You can where these sunglasses no matter where you are or what you are doing. Kaenon has beautifully mastered the art of combining feature, function and style.
