Maui Jim Puakenikeni Review

Even though the Maui Jim Puakenikeni isn't officially part of their fashion collection, these cat eye sunglasses are a fashion forward women's frame. The clean lines of the monel metal frame cling to a classy but sassy look that certainly deviates from the norm. On first glance it's easy to miss some of the finer details that make this ladies frame a very unique fashion piece. A good example of this, is the elegant way the single-barrel pin hinge is positioned on the arms of the frame. A single bridge arches above the silicone coated metal nose pads that offer an adjustable fit. Silicone wrapped temples add to the overall comfort of these lightweight ladies shades which is an absolute must for a frame you'll be wanting to wear all day, everyday.

When it comes to lenses you get Maui Jim's high end polarized SuperThin Glass. This gives the Puakenikeni the sharpest optics offered by the brand. MauiGradient® lenses offer a subdued fashionable look that suits this elegant frame perfectly. In simpler terms, the lenses offer a gradually darker tint that fades to a lighter tint. This allows for the perfect amount of light transmission for a long day of fun in the sun. Your lens color options include Maui Rose (below), HCL Bronze, and Neutral Grey.

Like all Maui Jim sunglasses the Puakenikeni come equipped with superb PolarizedPlus2® lens technology.

SportRx Frame Width (SFW): 138mm makes these a Medium to Large fit for women and a Medium fit for men.
