An Akinz way of life

31 Dec, 2009

Founded in 2005, Akinz apparel began out of Texas by Suzanne Akin and kept growing as she moved to Colorado.  With a wakeboarding and snowboarding focus, this smaller apparel company has found it’s own wings with their designs that are created in-house.  Their motto is “find your wings” based upon finding something that moves and pushes you to reach for the sky…which is exactly what Akinz continues to do.

Akinz offers a mix of softgoods including t-shirts, handmade beanies and jewelry to compliment the rider on and off the mountain.  Suzanne continues to do the designs herself for the men’s and women’s lines, here’s just a couple of my personal favorites that support the Akinz cause.

Cloud Cover Unisex T-shirt


Umbrella Girl T-shirt


Arsenic and Lace Bottlecap necklace


This self funded company continues to introduce new designs and create their own Akinz style of life.  You can check out Akinz on their website or join their social media movement at facebook and twitter.
