Hawaii’s Sunglass Specialist

By Ryken Shibasaki
General Manager of Freaky Tiki Tropical Optical

Where do you go when you are looking for a store that specializes in sunglasses? We are probably thinking of the same place, as until recent years there was only one specialty store here where you could shop. Sure, we may have gone to a department store or local surf shop to sift through their limited selection and chat with an associate, who would tell us little more than, “Those look good on you.”

But if we wanted to see it all and receive service from a trained professional, we had no choice but one. But then again, were we really seeing it “all”?

This is where we at Freaky Tiki, a locally owned and operated sunglasses retailer that has been servicing Hawaii since 2006, saw the opportunity to reveal what the community was missing: selection and service.

In 2013, Freaky Tiki opened Hawaii’s biggest sunglasses store at Ala Moana Center. Here, we showcase the largest selection of Ray Ban, Oakley and Maui Jim sunglasses in the state. In addition, we carry an array of other brand names including Prada, Tiffany & Co., Gucci, Tom Ford, Bvlgari, Oliver Peoples, Tory Burch, Coach, Kate Spade, Spy, Arnette and more — basically, everything you would find in your nearest sunglasses store, department store and surf shop combined into one convenient location!

Furthermore, our sunglass specialists have received factory training, visiting the facilities and working with the craftsmen who bring the sunglasses to life. Whether it’s technical features and benefits, frame fitting or fashion consulting, our specialists do it all. At Freaky Tiki, you can rest assured that our highly skilled team will provide you with all of the knowledge and kamaaina service you deserve in order to find the perfect pair of sunglasses to accompany you throughout your daily life.
