Founded in 2005 in sunny Southern California, Knockaround is the original, affordable sunglasses company. Our shades are stylish and practical, designed to take a beating, and come in a ton of different color combinations. Best of all, it won’t cost you an arm and a leg to protect your eyes. Starting at $35, our sunglasses are available in over fifteen different frame styles and are offered with both standard UV400 protection and polarized lenses.

And have we mentioned how many colorways we offer? From the simple to the extravagant, we have it all. Basic black, cool blues, rosey pinks, and vibrant multicolor designs adorn every frame style. If you don’t find exactly what you’re looking for, our Custom Shop is open! You can design your very own pair of sunglasses, customizing the front, arms, lenses, and K logos with matte or glossy colors and patterns.

All of these features, colors, and frame options start at just $35. Affordable doesn’t get any better than this.
