We Are Plastic Neutral
PROTECTING OUR OCEANS FROM PLASTIC WASTE
Making high-quality shades is the core of what we do, but inevitably that means we contribute to excess plastic byproduct. The idea of being a net drain on the environment doesn’t sit well with us, so we partnered with CleanHub to recover and remove plastic waste before it can reach our oceans!

We Named Them Knockarounds for a Reason
Knockaround was founded in 2005 by Adam “Ace” Moyer during his time as a graduate art student at the University of California, San Diego. Ace named his affordable shades after the sneakers his dad wore when he mowed the lawn, dubbed his “knockaround” sneakers. They were classic, they were durable, and should they get beaten up, it wouldn’t be the end of the world. Ace applied the same concept to his newly founded sunglasses company: classic and timeless shades designed to take a beating. And should you lose or break your sunglasses, it doesn’t cost you a fortune to pick up a brand-new pair.
Our affordable sunglasses are available in fifteen different frame styles (all unisex), each with its own unique look and characteristics, and all offered in a wide range of frame and lens colors. Whether you’re looking for men’s sunglasses or styles with a feminine flair, we’ve got you covered. We even offer an awesome collection of kids sunglasses available in bright colors and cool patterns irresistible to mini-sized sunlovers. So, explore our best-selling shades, check out our latest arrivals, and don’t forget to stop by the CUSTOM Shop to customize a unique pair of sunglasses that fits your style like a glove.
