About

Our Product

We take pride in adding handcrafted elements to everything we make.  Our shirts are printed right in our flagship store in Fort Collins, Colorado and we make all of our beanies by hand.  Stop by and you can see whatever we’re working on that day as well as order a custom beanie made just for you.  Akinz has expanded to a wider variety of products, including t-shirts, tank tops, dresses, handmade jewelry, handmade beanies, hoodies, hoodie dresses, trucker hats, wayfarer sunglasses, and accessories.

The Akinz lifestyle

Akinz, both the company and our products, is infused with the adventurous goals and dreams that it started with. We live to enjoy life, may that be while snowboarding, biking, mountain biking, hiking, wakeboarding, going on grand adventures, or just spending time with great friends. We try to support those around us who live their lives in the same way. We aim to inspire those around us to live an active lifestyle and to “find their wings” because after all, life’s too short to settle for the ordinary.

Our Start

Akinz was founded in 2005 in a studio apartment in Houston, TX by Suzanne Akin with the wings logo and the accompanying motto, Find Your Wings. The Akinz motto which sometimes shows up in the t-shirt designs and is the foundation of the wings logo encourages men and women to find the one thing that motivates them to push life to the limit and reach for the sky. At that time, Akinz consisted only of t-shirts and tank tops and was sold out of the trunk of Suzanne’s purple mini-cooper at wakeboarding events, bars, and wherever else she struck up a conversation with people that were interested in what she was doing. Akinz then followed Suzanne out to Colorado where the colder weather inspired Suzanne to start making hoodies and beanies.
