Having light colored eyes they are very sensitive to sunlight. So, because of this I am a sunglasses hoarder. I keep several pairs in each car, in drawers on the house, at my desk at work, in the bathroom, in the playroom, etc. But I also have small children and I’m fairly active. I’m hard on sunglasses. I sit on them. I pull the earpieces off. I scratch the lenses. I need sunglasses that are reasonably priced. But I still want ones that are stylish and offer excellent eye protection.
I had seen several other runners talking about Knockaround sunglasses on Twitter and Instagram and always thought they were cute but had never tried a pair. I was excited to be able to try them out as part of the Bibrave Pro program.
I tried out the Knockaround Premium sunglasses. They come is SO MANY cute, fun colors! It was so hard to decide what color to choose!! I chose a pair with mirrored lenses and a pair with matte lenses to test out the difference in lens quality and durability.
I love the look of mirrored lenses but they scratch so easily. So far these mirrored lenses have held up well! I just put them in the handy cloth protective pouch and throw them in my purse when I’m not using them. I saw no difference in lens quality between the mirrored and matte pairs.
I really like the wider fit of the classic frames. They offer a really good amount of protection around the eye as well as UV400 protection
So, how they perform on a run?
GREAT! They didn’t budge! They didn’t flop around. They didn’t slide down. They stayed put, even on several of my really sweaty runs. I even wore them to a 5k race and they performed perfectly.
Starting at only $15 a pair it’s hard not to snatch up every color they offer!! Plus you can customize your own pair for just a little bit more. It’s so much fun to pick out lens, earpiece and frame colors!! And they have some amazingly cool limited edition releases that you have to check out.
Right now you can save 20% off one single order at Knockaround with the code BIBRAVEKNOCKS. I highly recommend grabbing you a pair, or several.
