John Freeman was born and raised in Charlotte, NC with a fondness for race cars, sneakers and sunglasses. In 2012, as a creative outlet, John started designing sunglasses on his dining room table and quickly turned what is now known as “Johnny Fly” into a globally recognized brand that creates one of a kind items that focus on the sustainability and individuality of each design.
Johnny Fly was dreamt up and currently headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Everything! We are proud to be a local Charlotte based brand while always keeping fashion and the environment in mind. We use organic Italian acetate which keeps our frames biodegradable while allowing us to have fun designing colorful and fun seasonal collections. Our signature wood arms are layered and veneered to keep them water resistant, light weight and fashionably unique. Our polarized Nylon lenses use the newest vision technology while our spring hinges allow your frames to hug your face without pinching it. And don’t get us started on customer service!
All of our frames come with our one of a kind, travel friendly collapsable cork case, a soft poly fiber case which doubles as a great cleaning cloth, and our lifetime warranty and repair policy.
Our flagship store is located in Charlotte, NC – 519 E. 36th Street, Charlotte, NC 28205. Be sure to check our store locator for a retailer near you that may be carrying our Fly products!
Certainly! We have a growing network of authorized Johnny Fly Retailers! Visit our "Where To Buy” map to see if there is a fly dealer near you!
Each frame shape has core color-ways within its own collection with a few limited edition acetate colors every season. It’s possible the frame color you saw previously was one of the limited releases! Contact a Johnny Fly team member and we would be happy to guide you to something similar or perhaps find something hidden in the vault.
Of course! We have options for all face sizes, shapes and personalities as no face is the same. For smaller faces we recommend our Pilot, Flight and Branch frames, but at the end of the day, it’s whatever you feel absolutely fly in!

Polarized sunglasses are coated with a chemical filter that cuts glare. They work by blocking the light waves bouncing off horizontal surfaces. Polarized lenses are helpful when you're driving or participating in sports.
