I received two pairs of Sunglasses from Knockaround to try out. One pair for sun and one pair for fun. This post will discuss the pair for “run”. For this pair I received a pair of Matte Black on Black/Smoke Seventy Nines.
In the summer, running sunglasses are a must for me. I use them for my own training as well as when I am coaching my high school athletes or working solo with a few of my adult clients. Either way, these bad boys get a lot of use, and abuse.
From the Knockaround website;
“KNOCKAROUND SEVENTY NINES SUNGLASSES
Designed to deliver a perennial summer high, Knockaround Seventy Nines are fashion-forward but always approachable. Whether you’re headed to the office, checking out the new coffee shop in your neighborhood, or hopping a flight to your next adventure, these casually cool sunnies will be your go-to companions. Each pair offers just the right balance of vintage vibes and contemporary style for a look that’s on trend yet perfectly timeless.
Seventy Nines offer a chiseled, low profile silhouette that looks especially great on small to medium-sized faces. Unisex styling in a wide array of colors means you can share a pair with bae. (But let’s be real, you’ll each want your own!) Every pair gets a few finishing flourishes in the form of recessed metallic hardware, matching logo detailing on the arms, and a laser etched logo on the lenses.
Enduring Style Meets Exceptional Durability
You’ll want to wear these versatile sunglasses season after season, so we’ve designed them to last. Every pair of Seventy Nines is made with strong 5-barrel hinges and FDA-approved impact resistant lenses, so they can take whatever knocks you dish out. Other thoughtful details include full UV400 sun protection and the option to add polarized lenses to all of your favorite frame colors. Speaking of colors, you can fly under the radar in black on black and tortoise shell frames, or make a splash with eye-catching options like jade lagoon and glossy white. Snag your favorite pair (or maybe more than one!) with free shipping on all orders over $50!”
So many selling points, in the description I was super excited to test these bad boys out!
- Smaller fit for smaller sized heads!
- Strong and impact resistant lenses
- Full UV400 sun protect
- Polarized Lenses
What did I love most about them!? I think they are absolutely adorable and fit well for both running and for fun. I basically took this pair everywhere. Along with being super durable the seventy nines are also super lightweight. While running they stayed put without a bounce. I put these glasses through the ringer and they are still flawless. I already plan on ordering more! This time I am going to get adventurous! Which ones should I choose next?
