Knockaround, LLC is a sunglasses and style accessories company based in San Diego, California.

History[edit]

The company was founded by Adam 'Ace' Moyer in 2005 while he was attending the University of California, San Diego as a graduate art student. Initially started in Moyer's studio apartment, Knockaround is now headquartered in downtown San Diego.[1]

Products[edit]

Knockaround makes its products available through its website. The company's initial product line consisted of simple, wayfarer-style sunglasses available in eight different colors. Over the next several years, Knockaround added a number of additional models to its lineup, such as higher-quality spring-hinge sunglasses, an aviator-style model, and a model that is 53% plant-based. An ongoing limited edition series introduced in 2010 offers sunglasses in previously unreleased color combinations with themed packaging, produced in limited quantities.[2] The company frequently adds new color choices to its sunglasses lines, and since mid-2011, customers can choose the colors of different components of their sunglasses on the "Custom" section of the website.[3] Knockaround also offers other products such as belts and t-shirts.

In 2015, Knockaround released a new Premium style frame while still keeping the original Premium style frame on the site. These original Premiums were renamed to "Classics".

Influence[edit]
