Meet Igor Gutiérrez

Igor is the owner and founder of Theflyshades. From Basque origins (northern Spain) and traveller by nature, he currently lives in Frankfurt. Unconditional u2 fan, his passion is no other than to keep alive these once named ‘space era’ sunglasses.

About Us

We're a team that work hard to produce what we believe, is the best ``fly`` sunglass style ever designed. Preservation and innovation is what keep us going over the years.

03.

Improved Quality

Our models demonstrate the perfect synergy of new, advanced materials and old manufacturing techniques... ...because some processes are simply too good to change.

04.

True Retro

Our ``fly`` sunglasses were popular back in the 1970s, where big models became stylish. After that, they seemed to be forgotten... In 1991, when U2 released their seventh studio album ACHTUNG BABY, Bono returned our sunglasses back to life.

05.

Mystique

Draped in his new alter-ego ``The Fly``, Bono made these sunglasses the most iconic fashion item in U2’s career. Since then, many sunglass manufacturers have reintroduced larger ``fly`` sunglass models, but none have ever matched the mystique of our catalogue.

Unique Models

While retro is important to us at Theflyshades, we are also a 21st-century brand and the developments in modern manufacturing and lens quality allow us to offer the best of both.

We don’t believe in fast fashion and ever-changing trends. The construction and design of our two unique wrap-around sunglass models is about longevity, manufactured to take you through decades of wear and enjoyment.

Because eyes protection doesn't know any age, our fly sunglasses are very wraparound, to ensure you're really covered. #thirdage #uvprotection #100uvprotection #fashiondesign #viking1973 #green #wraparound ...
