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
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.
