Knockaround in PROJECT/reed at S.L.A.T.E.

We were extremely excited for Knockaround to be included in PROJECT/reed, a special exhibition curated by Jeff Staple and Reed Space at the PROJECT tradeshow in Las Vegas earlier this week.

PROJECT/reed is a “time capsule” of sorts, containing some of the most exclusive, limited, and interesting products to be released in the last few years.

Visitors to the exhibition were greeted with a plaque that read: “What you see before you are physical archives of our world.  They all come from ‘the streets,’ but these items are now some of the world’s most sought-after and highly coveted objects.”

Included in PROJECT/reed were Bring Back the Brown Fort Knocks, Jeep x USA Basketball Fort Knocks, Limited Edition Deep Sea Premiums, and, perhaps the most exclusive limited release we’ve ever created, Werewolf Premiums.  Only 20 pairs of Werewolves were ever created, and Jeff was able to source one of the pairs for inclusion in the show.

Some of the other brands included were Nike, KAWS, Bape, Supreme, Asics, incase, and Benny Gold.  Check out a full recap over at Complex.com.

Big thanks to Jeff Staple and Reed Space for including Knockaround, and to Product Etcetera for taking the photos.

Limited Edition Shark Attack Premiums!

Recently, we visited a group of 5th and 6th-graders at a local elementary school; each student was given a Knockaround Premiums coloring page and asked to design their own special pair of sunglasses.  Out of 250 designs, we chose 12-year-old Sebastian’s “Shark Attack” as the winner.  Congratulations, Sebastian!

We thought Sebastian’s design was so good, in fact, that we decided to make it into an L.E.  Introducing Limited Edition Shark Attack Premiums!

Each pair features his fantastic shark-tooth frame design, with Red Sunset lenses, and comes with a toy shark.

So don’t go into the water…without first making sure your eyes are shaded by a pair of these ultra-cool Shark Attack Premiums, that is.

And here’s the best part: for each pair sold, $5 will go to funding the purchase of art supplies at Sebastian’s school!

Only 200 pairs are available, so… get to it.   -Ace

Meshu.io Jewelry

Great concept.  Just go to Meshu.io, create a list of places you’ve been to (or like), and they generate a unique piece of jewelry based on those locations.  A necklace, earrings, or cufflinks.  -Ace
