Knockaround x Streaker Sports: Limited Edition Shorts!

A few months ago, our friends over at Streaker Sports dropped us a line about possibly doing a collab.  As the brainstorming process began, we stumbled upon a true gem in the world of professional sports uniforms… the academy blue shorts worn by the 1981 San Diego Clippers basketball team.

Although Los Angeles typically comes to mind with mention of the Clippers, the franchise did indeed spend a few forgotten years in San Diego.  Back then the team wasn’t known for it’s dominance on the court… but it was known for it’s dominance in the style department.

So with the help and vintage-sports-expertise of the guys at Streaker Sports, Knockaround has resurrected the spirit of the old San Diego Clippers uniforms and infused it into this pair of shorts.

Made from a lightweight, quick-dry material, each pair features embroidered logos, contrast red mesh pockets, and nautical flags down each side (can you tell what they say?).  The nautical theme pays homage to the seafaring San Diego lifestyle, and the modern updates mean that you’ll be able to wear them for all of your athletic pursuits.

Only 115 pairs were produced.  Each pair is hand-numbered, and the first 48 will be exclusively available on Knockaround.com.  So show a little hustle, and pick up a pair today!  -Ace

UPDATE:  These are officially SOLD OUT.  It only took about an hour.

We Have a New Website!

Well, as of yesterday, we are officially into our favorite season:  SUMMER.  And we’re celebrating with the launch of the all-new Knockaround.com!  We’ve completely redesigned it from the inside out, adding and upgrading features along the way.

  • The Look – Inspired by the clean lines and structure of an art gallery, the new Knockaround.com uses a black, white and grey color palette.  The grid system makes for easy product and color comparisons.
  • Navigation – We’ve added a semi-transparent drop-down menu at the top of the site, so you can easily change categories at any moment.  We’ve also added a “Recently Viewed Items” bar at the bottom of the screen, so you can hop back to a product you were just looking at.  The footer at the bottom of every page contains links to all of our social media sites, and support categories that will be able to answer most of your questions.
  • Product Photography – We’ve increased the size of our main images and pop-ups so you can get a better feel for each product.  We’ve also reshot many of our products.  For example, take a look at our Belts page.
  • Tracking Numbers for All Orders – Every single order will now have a tracking number, including USPS First-Class and Priority shipments.  The tracking number will be listed on your account page, and in your shipping confirmation email.
  • Checkout – One of the areas where we’ve greatly improved our website is in the shopping cart and checkout process.  You’ll now be able to estimate shipping before entering the checkout process.  The entire checkout process is on one-page, so you won’t have to worry about clicking back and forth if you need to make a change before finalizing your order.
  • Customer Service – We’ve got a new customer service email address: support@knockaround.com .  Feel free to send us an email with any questions or concerns about your order, or the new site.
  • Mobile Site – Visit Knockaround.com on your iPhone.  All of the logos, images, buttons, checkout process, etc. will resize to your screen.  That’ll make it a lot easier to pick up an extra pair while you’re on the run, or snag the latest Limited Edition when you’re away from your computer.
  • Emails – Our email newsletter also received a face-lift.  Make sure you are signed up to receive emails from us:  just go to the bottom of our homepage and you’ll see where to sign-up.
