I have the gloss black polarized Knoxville sunglasses. My original sunglasses had a manufacturer's defect but with the speediness response and actions from Electrics customer service is what makes it 5 stars. Phong Nguyen (a Electric Customer Service Rep) responded to every email I sent (about 5) in regards to my sunglasses in less than 15 minutes each time I emailed Electric. I wanted to give special recognition to him because he made making a warranty claim easy and painless. I love the sunglasses, they fit my face great and are extremely comfortable. Combined with the style and great customer service I'll remain a loyal customer.
Previous electric purchases:
Electric Technician sunglasses- fit great and comfortable
Electric snowboarding EG 2.5 goggles- fit great and never fog up.

I am not usually someone who writes a review unless there I have something negative to say, but I feel obligated to express my pure obsession over my Knoxville sunglass. The wide lens allows for full sun coverage, while also fitting tight to my face. The thick frames allow for a durable feel that makes me feel confident about my sunglasses lifespan. One reason I bought these sunglasses is for the product defect warranty that electric provides in case the product has any defects. Overall, these sunglasses kick some major tail and I personally believe Electric blows the competition out of the water. For 100$, there is not a better sunglass on the market.

Just got the Knoxvilles a month or so ago and couldn't imagine rocking anything else. Had a few questions for customer service and they killed it, helping with whatever questions I had. Best shades out there and great heads to communicate with.

Hands down these are may favorite glasses to wear! They are extremely comfortable and with the keyhole nosepiece, they sit perfectly on the bridge of my nose. The Knoxville's offer great style, comfort, and durability that everyone should look for in a pair of glasses.

These sunglasses are by far the best on the market concerning the shape and design. I purchased my first pair in the summer of 2011 and never looked back. A few weeks ago I sent them in because one of the hinges was loosing and the response I got from the the customer service was top notch. They were very quick and dynamic in figuring out what the problem was and what they could do to resolve it. I highly recommend Electric eye wear to anyone and in all aspects of of life. From lifestyle to snowboard goggles they are the best you can get. Stay classy Electric!
with love, from Colorado.

Electric visual has one of the best customer service departments that i have ever dealt with!!!
The lightening fast response time, and courteous team of professionals made my purchase and exchange simple and stress free.
This is my 2nd pair of Knoxvilles and my 10th pair of Electric sunnies overall. The quality and style is unmatched.
If you are looking for sunglasses with a classic look and amazing fit.... Look no further. The Knoxville is it.
Thanks Electric! Keep up the good work! Cheers!

I have a hard time finding sunglasses that look right on me, and ones that are comfortable. I have never in my life paid more than $30 for sunglasses, until I bought a pair of Knoxvilles. Which in my mind, I couldn't have made a better choice, these are some gnarly shades! They are lightweight and are super comfortable to wear. Going places and receiving compliments on my sunglasses, has never happened before lol. The are a 100% great buy, you can't go wrong. Plus the service i have receiived from Electric themselves has been remarkable and has made my shopping experience that much better! I appreciate all the help. Keep pumping out these killer glasses.

I purchased the Knoxville glases without much comparison shopping and hoped I made the right choice.... I have a smaller head size and its hard to find hats and glasses that look good and feel good but loved these shades! UNFORTUNATELY I broke them the first day I had them by dropping at a Major lazor concert.... however I liked them so much i went and bought another Identical (with the POLARIZED option this time) pair because I dug them so much! I usta only where cheapo shades, but the optics make a world of difference!
