Introducing the Limited Edition Staple Pigeon Fort Knocks, a collaboration with the New York based design firm and streetwear brand, Staple!
The Staple Pigeon has become an iconic symbol, representing the reckless energy of urban dwellers throughout the world. The sunglasses feature frosted pigeon-grey frames, a pink pigeon foot ‘tip-dip’, gunmetal hardware, and polarized Smoke lenses with an etched Staple pigeon logo. Each pair comes with a custom box, grey suede pouch, small pack of birdseed, and a pigeon feather.
2000 pairs were made. 1000 pairs are available at select Staple retailers, including Reed Space in New York City, and 1000 pairs are available in the Knockaround SHOP.
On Monday we launched our second collaboration with Pow! Wow! Hawaii!, a week long street art festival on the island of Oahu. Watch the video to see artists from around the world add a little color to the streets of Kaka’ako, and check out the limited edition sunglasses in the Knockaround SHOP.
Black and green frames, celestial green lenses, and gunmetal hardware. Each pair comes with a custom Pow! Wow! x Knockaround bandana, hand-numbered edition card, black suede pouch, and custom box. 1200 pairs were made; 300 were available in Hawaii and 900 are available now in the Knockaround SHOP.
It’s time to bust out the hot sauce and your giving spirit! As part of our new charitable program, Knockaround Class Acts, we are pre-selling these Limited Edition Nacho Premiums on the crowdfunding website Indiegogo.
Designed by 5th-grader Vanessa F. from Lee Elementary, the sunglasses feature a Southwest-orange and jalapeño-green frame, yellow sunset lenses, and a geometric tortilla chip pattern. Visit our campaign to learn more about how purchasing a pair of our latest Limited Edition will also help keep art in our schools!
On November 1st, Knockaround is taking you to school. We are excited to introduce Knockaround Class Acts, a campaign which aims to donate money, resources, and art supplies to underfunded elementary schools.
You might remember our trip to Hilltop Elementary in 2012 when a fifth grader named Sebastian designed the Shark Attack Premiums. 200 pairs of these shark themed Limited Editions went into production and sold out in under an hour. As a result, we were able to donate $5 from every pair to purchase new art supplies for Sebastian’s school.
Well, we’re at it again. Over the last few weeks the Knockaround crew visited three elementary schools in the San Diego area. We held a design contest and received over 300 submissions. We’ve selected an awesome winning design to share with the world.
We will be pre-selling the glasses on Indiegogo.com during the month of November. That way, everyone who wants a pair, gets a pair, and we can maximize our potential donation. 100% of the money raised during our November campaign will be given back to the participating elementary schools, and ArtReach, our partnering non-profit organization which facilitates art education in underfunded elementary schools around San Diego. Read more about them here.
So stay tuned, the design will be revealed on November 1st.
If you’re reading this, chances are you already have a pair of Knockarounds… but it’s time to pick up a spare. Introducing Limited Edition Bowling Premiums! You’ll be the talk of the alley wearing a pair of these, which feature frosted grey fronts, smoke lenses, and screenprinted matte white arms.

Each pair comes with a hand-sewn flannel Kingpin pouch, a desktop bowling set, and a custom Knockaround Bowling League patch. Only 450 pairs are available, so don’t hesitate, Turkey!
The teak deck under your feet, captain’s hat on, and anchors aweigh. It’s time to take the yacht out to sea. You lower the jet skis off the port side, and polish your diamonds as you sunbathe on the bow. But, today was a rough day… France is all out of your favorite champagne. So treat yourself to the new Limited Edition Luxury Fort Knocks! The frosted cabernet arms, glowing golden fronts, and plush midnight blue velvet pouch will have your day turned around in no time.
We know our Limited Edition line has been dormant for a few months, but here’s some good news: an exciting new pair of shades has just erupted onto our website! Introducing Limited Edition Volcanic Premiums! These molten-hot sunglasses feature red-orange “Lava Spray” fronts, frosted black arms, and “Magma Sunset” lenses. Each pair comes with a custom ash grey felt pouch, a hand-numbered edition card, and a bag of candy pop rocks– so you can wear your new shades while feeling the magmatic gases swirl inside you. Only 1000 pairs were made, so make like Volcanologist Harry Dalton in the movie Dante’s Peak, and get moving!
Knockaround teamed up with another local San Diego brand, Product Etcetera, to produce these special “Bring Back the Brown II” Fort Knocks sunglasses. Conceived as a follow-up to the original Bring Back the Brown Fort Knocks, these sunglasses feature matte brown arms, frosted yellow fronts, polarized Yellow Sunset lenses, and gold metal hardware. Each pair comes with an official-size baseball, a soft flannel pouch, and a 19″ x 28″ Bring Back the Brown poster.
Product Etcetera created the BBTB campaign with the grand objective of fostering a stronger loyalty to San Diego and its sports culture. The BBTB strategy is primarily focused on establishing brown as one of the visual foundations of the San Diego Padres, as it’s unique to Major League Baseball and holds historical significance to San Diego. San Diego is the oldest European (Spanish) settlement in California and was founded by friars. Friars wore brown and our team is called the Padres. It’s that simple.
