About Us

A True California Original:

    In 1991 Black Flys was born in the midst of a thriving west coast culture. Built on Sun, Skate, & Surf; Black Flys has been forefront in a worldwide underground. Rumor and innuendo are the stories you hear, good times and great sunglasses are what what you expect. Roaming the beaches by day, or wandering the clubs at night is where you will find us.

    But, only our reputation is suspect.

    Black Flys takes a lot of pride in the quality of it's sunglasses. You'll find no plastic hinges to keep costs down, or crap lenses to save a penny. All of our frames are made from high quality materials, our lenses exceed UV standards. Our styles are uncompromising, and our appeal can be felt when you wear a pair of Black Flys. And with founder Jack Martinez & the Cali-crew back in the saddle. You'll see more Fly style in everything, from design and art, to image and character. Good or bad, the name Black Flys will always elicit a response.
