Howdy in the Heiferhood!

I'm back today with a short and sweet product review on some new sunglasses by Knockaround.  These are some seriously COOL shades. I have to admit - I'd never heard about them until I had the opportunity to try them out as part of the BibRave program.

They arrived in a small box, very neatly packaged, which I was impressed with. I wasn't sure what to expect, and loved the presentation. Check them out:

I wasn't expecting TWO pair to arrive, so imagine my giddiness. I love the frosty mint colored ones. They make me crave spearmint gum. It's ok. I'm weird. I get that a lot.  Each pair came in a green carrying bag - very nice touch.

They are super light weight which I love - and they cover my peripheral vision (yanno, in case the ice cream truck swings by, I WON'T MISS IT!!!)  Score! Winning!

Let's talk a little bit about Knockaround, and who they are. I copied this from their website, yo:

Knockaround was founded in 2005 by Ace during his time as a graduate art student at the University of California, San Diego.
Merging the classic East Coast prep style of his Virginia upbringing, his interest in design and fashion, and a newfound love for the perpetually sunny, laid-back lifestyle of Southern California, Ace created a company centered around a sunglasses line that was both practical and stylish.

I have to say - I think they did a good job on this. I really do.

The glasses are lightweight, like I mentioned - but they don't bounce up and down on your head as you'd expect them to. They fit snugly and don't really move when you're running. And let's be honest - when I run it's more like a wobble-bounce kind of motion - which is not the smooth gliding you see from Boston Marathon runners.

A little more intel for ya on these awesome sunnies. This was taken from the website as well. Here's the best part - YOU CAN DESIGN YOUR OWN GLASSES! How TOTES COOL is that? (did I just say totes cool? Someone please tell my teens to revoke my coolMom card)

Our Knockaround Premiums are a progressive update to the Classics frame style that put Knockaround on the map. Boasting a slightly wider and more accommodating fit, these sunglasses feature embedded “K” logos on the outside of each arm. Whether you’re a guy or a girl, it's hard to go wrong with this modern take on a timeless design.
  • Frosted rubber mint frames
  • White K logos
  • Aqua mirrored lenses. Polarized option available
  • UV400 protection
  • FDA approved impact resistant lenses with laser etch logo detail
  • Refined arms and frame for superior comfort
  • Protective pouch included

All in all these are GREAT sunglasses, they provide great uv protection and I will enjoy wearing mine for a long time to come. I recommend them.
