WARNING!!!! OAKLEY WEARERS STAY AWAY..YOU WILL SWITCH!! WARNING..WARNING!!
EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING...light, durable....everything.
I wish I needed more than 1 pair, that is the only con!!!!
The Bottom Line:
The best pair of sunglasses I have EVER owned and well worth the money.
Well, I was at the mall one day a few months ago and I wanted a new pair of sunglasses. I was on a mission to replace the Bottlecap Oakleys that my son broke the day before. Having been an Oakley owner for the past 10 years, there was no doubt as to what brand I was after. I walked into the Sunglass Hut here at the local mall and then it happened:
I'm just looking, I told the man behind the counter. Just looking for a new pair of Oakleys. He asked me a few questions and started showing me exactly what I wanted, Oakley sunglasses. Well, I finally found a very nice pair and as I was getting ready to purchase them I asked if there were a pair he recommended.
Now, I am a Sales Manager at a local new car dealership so don't tell me you folks don't know what the "pitch" is. He looked at me in the eyes and said, "if I show you my recommendation, you'll never buy another pair of Oakleys again", well, I had to see them for myself because I have never heard anyone make such a passionate and broad statement for a pair of sunglasses.
He asked how long I had been buying and wearing Oaks and I told him about 10 years and he said I just wore the last pair...ever, and then he brought out the Maui Jim Makaha. Now this is where it gets good, if you want to get a bag of popcorn and read this next part, I'll wait because it's good!.........................................................................okay, enough waiting. He looked at me right in the eyes and extended his hand to me and said, "I'll bet you lunch, right here, right now, that you will never buy another pair of Oakleys after trying these on". Well, I had to take the bet because I was hungry and I wanted to eat for free so yes, I thought I was smooth sailing. He handed them to me and when he did, he grabbed the Maui Jim case and a cleaning cloth and some cleaning spray and set them on the counter.
As I was trying the pair on, I kept hearing what sounding like the ringing of a cash register. I looked at him and asked how they looked on me and he, of course, said great. I couldn't believe how light they were and how amazing they were at blocking out bright lights. I just couldn't believe it. I told him I couldn't afford Polarized lenses and he said they were....
THE "ALMOST" HEART ATTACK
.....$120.00 on sale!! After catching my breath, he just told me do one more thing....sign right here for me...(the registration for the warranty)!! Can you believe it, he already rang the glasses up and was waiting for me to pay!! Now that is confidence!! I immediately signed and paid and was extremely happy about my purchase and I will never, ever wear another pair of Oakleys again.
After we were through laughing about the whole thing, I asked him what he wanted for lunch and he reached behind the counter and handed me a $15.00 gift card to Sbarros, a pizza place in the mall. He told me I deserved it for making such a life changing switch and he had already eaten!! I went back to work the next day and mailed him a $30 gift card to Applebees and a letter thanking him. He sent me a letter back with his name and title on it.
I couldn't believe it, this man, the owner, made time to talk to me about what most people deem insignificant, my eyes and he never questioned me or anything, he only offered. What an absolutely amazing experience and I will forever be a Maui Jim customer and a Sunglass Hut customer.
