Maui Jim Spreads the Aloha Spirit to Zappos HQ

2,681 miles. That’s the distance that separates the islands of Hawaii from Las Vegas. But at the beginning of this week, the aloha spirit was only yards away when our friends from Maui Jim dropped by to spread a little Hawaiian love to Zappos HQ.

The lifestyle eyewear brand handed out close to 500 Maui Jim blue leis, brochures about their amazing sunglasses and flip-flop bottle opener key chains. They also let Zapponians try on the latest styles of Maui Jim Polarized sunglasses to show off their beautiful color clarity and glare protection.

The best part of the Maui Jim visit, however, was arguably the three beautiful hula dancers they brought along, accompanied by live Polynesian drum beats! They even did some impromptu hula lessons for brave Zappos employees who didn’t mind getting down Hawaiian style in front of co-workers!

A big “mahalo” (thank you) goes out to the Maui Jim Ohana (family) for visiting our campus and spreading the aloha spirit!

Perhaps the most essential of all summer accessories, sunglasses are an easy way to infuse style into your entire wardrobe this season. Not only do these can’t-live-without accessories protect your eyes from the harsh summer sun, they’re a great way to update your look with minimal effort.

Here are some of our favorite sunglasses trends to look out for this summer:

Metal-rimmed aviators: This classic shape is the way to go if you want something that’s universally flattering and versatile. The Ralph RA 4076 is a great update to this style with its colored arms.

Pop colors: A pair of brightly-colored shades really keeps the focal point on your face! Check out the Ray-Ban Cats 5000.

Cat-eye frames: Taking its inspiration from retro sunglasses, these are a fashionista favorite, and for good reason! They’re super fun and whimsical. Check out the BJ268 by Betsey Johnson.

Oversized frames: No matter what the season, large sunglasses are always ultra chic. The Maui Jim Lani in Tokyo Tortoise/Maui Rose is such a classic choice. The tortoiseshell color is great year-round.

Hang Ten With Maui Jim

Maui Jim began as one man selling sunglasses on the beaches of Maui, Hawaii, back in the early 1980s.  Today, Maui Jim is the fastest-growing polarized sunglass maker in the world.  As local demand grew for sunglasses that provided advanced protection from the severe glare and UV rays of the Hawaiian sun – without distorting the beautiful colors of the Islands, the company developed proprietary technology – PolarizedPlus, which was later patented.

All of the new models are equipped with Maui Jim’s patented PolarizedPlus®2 technology, which starts by vanquishing the glare.  The lenses feature 3 rare earth elements, maximizing transmission of the colors your eyes see naturally.  The multi-layered lens design allows more usable light to be transmitted to the eyes.  The result is visual acuity, contrast and color that is unrivaled.  In fact, Maui Jim’s patented PolarizedPlus2 technology continues to be the top choice of eye care professionals, anglers and outdoor enthusiasts. Check out their new styles:

The Hamoa Beach offers a modified rectangle frame with a medium fit.  The nylon frame is lightweight, tough and non-corrosive and features a nickel/silver spring hinge, high-gloss finish and easily adjustable wire core temples.  The lenses are made of ST (SuperThin) Glass, which provides durability, scratch resistance and incredible optical clarity.  Available in three lens colors—Neutral Grey, HCL Bronze, and Maui Rose.  Perfect for active lifestyles and activities such as hiking and boating.

 

The Dawn Patrol offers cutting-edge lens technology with a retro feel.  The ST Glass lenses are 20% thinner than conventional laminated polarized lenses.  The aviator frame is made from a high-grade nylon, making it lightweight and tough.  Available in three lens colors—Neutral Grey, HCL Bronze, and Maui Rose.  Dawn Patrol is the perfect companion for catching early morning waves, strolling along the beach, driving along the coast.

 

The Manele Bay is another addition to the Maui Jim Aviators collection and delivers a strong, modern style.  The Monel metal frame is durable, resilient and easily adjustable.  It features bronze temples with rubber temple tips, along with a rubber sweat bar.  The ST Glass lenses provide superior optics, durability and scratch resistance without the weight.  Available in three lens colors—Neutral Grey, HCL Bronze, and Maui Rose.  Ideal for driving, walking, hiking, and boating.

 

The Maui Cat III is a tribute to one of the original Maui Jim styles and offers a retro feel.  The high grade nylon frame makes it durable, lightweight and comfortable.  The Maui Evolution lenses provide superior optics, scratch resistance and impact resistance in a lightweight package.  Available in three lens colors—Neutral Grey, HCL Bronze, and Maui Rose.  Great for active lifestyles, driving or boating.

 

The Backyards combines modern style with lightweight comfort.  The frame is made from high-grade nylon and is durable and lightweight.  The lenses are Polycarbonate, which makes them light, comfortable and impact resistant.  Available in three lens colors—Neutral Grey, HCL Bronze, and Maui HT.  Ideal for fast action sports or everyday wear.

 

The Lighthouse goes backs to basics and sensibly combines classic style with comfort.  The frame is made from high-grade nylon, which is very lightweight and provides superior comfort and fit.  The Polycarbonate lenses are impact resistant and feature Maui Jim’s proprietary CLEARSHELL®.  It provides excellent scratch resistance on the front and back of the lens.  Available in three lens colors—Neutral Grey, HCL Bronze, and Maui HT. 

Protect your eyes from harmful glare today without blocking out any of the vibrant colors around you with a pair of Maui Jim sunglasses. We also carry the women's line of Maui Jim sunglasses on Zappos.com. Aloha!
