The black or grey lens tint is good for general-purpose use. Anti-fatigue. True color perception. dark enough to provide overall protection. Reduces glare, especially off the water.

This sunglass has a long relationship with U2’s Bono. First, the singer used to wear them during the shooting of the Fly video in 1991 and during the ZooTV tour, in 1992 as the fly.

Years after that, in 2011 and upon Bono’s request, we produced them for the U2 production team and Universal Music group to include them in the 20th anniversary Achtung Baby über deluxe box set, as part of the merchandise as a collector item.

In 2023 and 2024, Bono wore this model again during the encore set, wearing the glasses this time in purple and blue colors all along the U2:UV Achtung Baby live at Sphere in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Lastly, as part of the official U2 Merchandise, this model was available at the Zoo Station lounge within the Venetian Resort, and (the band’s official website), fully U2 branded with the Fly logo.

Meets EU safety, health, and environmental protection requirements. Temples made from Grilamid TR90: lightweight, resistant to stress cracking and material fatigue, and stand up well against UV exposure and extreme temperatures.

    Achtung! These shades need to be banned by the EU. They are far too cool to be legal.

    Best purchase ever. One happy Fly here ….

    I bought two pairs of Vikings (because my child broke one of them) – they are fantastic! They cover the eyes well, great for driving. Although I preferred a slightly darker shade in the older pair.

    Good job!

    Great pair of glasses! I’ve wanted a pair of these since I was younger and saw a part of the ZOOtv tour on MTV for the first time. Great for U2 fans, but also for anyone that wants good fitting sunglasses that are different than the rest. Plastic is of good quality and they fit well (even those who need larger sunglasses). I highly recommend them.

    Spectacular! I’ve wanted a pair for so long, even though I have the Uber style from the 2011 AB anniversary box set. These are even better than I had hoped. I love them. Perfect in every way, plus they have a wonderful sturdy case to keep them safe. Customer service is also terrific and friendly; they kept me informed of shipping delays due to COVID-19 and promptly and patiently answered my questions. If you are wondering whether to buy these, I highly recommend them. You’ll love them, too!

    Unos productos excelentes, tanto las Viking como las Spartan, a mi mujer y a mi nos encantan, como fan de U2 estoy totalmente ilusionado con esta nueva adquisición. Por el lado del vendedor también excelente, total protección en el envío con su funda de calcetín, su funda dura y la protección que se incluye en la caja de envío. No quedarás descontento de ninguna manera

    The shades are great, love ’em! Not to stand out but just don’t need to have the same look as the crowd! Love my Sparan too. Great for riding my bike. Not to mention the pristine customer service given during my order.

    If your thinking about getting a pair, go for it. The quality is awesome and you’ll look even better wearing these.

    What’s up everybody!

    My Viking 1973 black shades have finally arrived! I immediately put them on, and what can I say, WOW! Just like I remember them from U2’s Zoo TV Tour. They do hug my face really tight, so I’m pretty sure they won’t fall off easily, which is a good thing, although it would’ve been nice if they were a little bit wider so they wouldn’t feel too tight around the temple area. Maybe more size options? Just a thought :)

    Anyways, everything arrived in mint condition. I would highly recommend them to anyone really, but specially to any U2 or Bono fans out there. The build and materials are top notch, and the design is truly unique as it is iconic… they look sooo cool, simply AMAZING! Thank you Fly Shades!

    “Is it getting better, or do you feel the same, will it make it easier on you now, you got your Fly Shades” – ONE extremely happy customer –
