Aurora Borealis

When conditions are perfect on clear northern nights, creatures of all kinds are treated to a visual extravaganza so awe-inspiring not even a full season of Planet Earth could do it justice. Aurora Borealis, the northern lights, dance above treetops and snow-capped peaks like magical curtains draped down from the heavens. If you haven’t seen this miracle yet, well, put it on your bucket list. Until then, this new Limited Edition pair will let you bring the beauty of the mystical Aurora Borealis along with you no matter what your latitude.

description

The Aurora Borealis Fast Lanes come as close to capturing the beauty of the northern lights as you can get without a road trip to Alaska. The frame is painted with an ethereal blend of bright green, deep indigo, and brilliant violet streaks that dance atop a starry night sky backdrop. Polarized northern moonshine lenses, purple K logos, and a pine tree lens etch round out this back-to-nature pair for a look that works just as well on a walk through the park as it does on a mountain hike.

Designed on one of our most popular frame styles, the Fast Lanes feature clean-cut, rectangular lenses, and provide full UV400 sun protection. Every pair comes with a microfiber northern lights protective pouch and a numbered edition card.

sustainability

In 2022, Knockaroud officially became Plastic Neutral—for every pound of plastic we use, we remove one pound from the environment elsewhere. But that’s far from where our sustainability efforts end. We’ve also implemented minimalist, recycled packaging, eliminated single-use plastics, and included recycled materials in our products whenever possible. There’s always more progress to be made, but we’re committed to putting in the work.

We ship Monday to Friday from our warehouse here in San Diego, CA, with the exception of holidays.

Stay Glare Aware

POLARIZED LENSES

Polarized lenses cut glare by filtering out horizontal light waves, like the ones that bounce off water or the road. Without this glare, you’re left with a more gentle view and reduced eye strain, not to mention crisper, cleaner details!

Knockaround Sunglasses and Newsweek

Who we are

Sun and San Diego

Born, raised, and bathed in San Diego sunshine, Knockaround is the original, affordable sunglasses brand. Since 2005 we’ve committed to making durable shades that are both practical and stylish. Our stellar customer service and ever-growing selection of high-quality eyewear have made us not just hometown favorites, but go-to’s across the globe!

Plastic Neutral

KNOCKAROUND IS PLASTIC NEUTRAL

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 4ocean to maintain plastic neutrality and work further to improve the environmental friendliness of our process.
