It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of Keanon sunglasses. I tried my first pair over two years and ever since, I’ve been hooked.
While I love my Maya frames from Kaenon, I found myself needing a sportier pair for running: smaller frame, shorter profile, more snug fit, and better ventilation. With my luck, Kaenon had just come out with the S-Kore frames. Seriously, it’s like Kaenon read my mind with their new S-Kore collection. The S-Kore KLR was everything I was looking for – and then some. The KLR is a new collection from Kaenon that just means the Kaenon logo on the side is a different colour - obviously, I got the pink version.
The low profile template of the S-Kore means that they fit perfectly when wearing a hat or visor - no bumping or knocking. Personally, I like to wear my hat lower while running so the S-Kore allow me to pull it down low without knocking into my sunglasses. The Variflex nose pads provide extra comfort for all day wear – no rubbing or irritation. The arms of the glasses also have padding on the side, offering extra comfort and a secure fit – perfect for performance on and off the water. For the performance oriented athlete it means you’ll spend more time focusing on the task at hand rather than worrying about you’re glasses falling off.
The best part about these glasses is the lens don’t have a frame around the bottom. Why is this so fabulous? It allows for better ventilation and for any form of moisture or water to flow off the bottom and not build up around the bottom. While I’m using my S-Kore’s for running mainly, they can still be used for all kinds or activities both on and off the water.
For those of you not so crazy about pink, the S-Kore comes in a variety of colours and lens tints. To view all available options, see here.
