  • 10 Reasons Why We Love Leggings

    Alright, the debate has been had that leggings can not and should not be considered to be pants. Here at Akinz, we have decided they don’t need to be boxed in! Leggings should be valued for what they are, in a class of their own- flexible, comfortable and functional year round. To set the record straight of why leggings hold their own in this timeless debate, we present you with the 10 reasons why we love leggings.

    leggings-made-in-usa

    1. One ‘fit’ to rule them all
      There is no need for ones labeled “curvy” or “boyfriend fit” because they are designed to hug all those curves in all the right places.
    2. You can throw away your old “fat pants”
      On those days where you have overeaten or the morning after Tour de Fat, there is no need to try to slip into a pair of skinny jeans. Slip on a pair of soft cotton leggings and enjoy your belly being swaddled until the stomach pains go away.
    3. They are adaptable to every shape and size
      True, one size does not fit all. We have all learned that unfortunate lesson from buying the $2 pair off Amazon that were made for tiny girls, but our leggings are 100% USA made, accomodate all sizes and several designs are printed on our very own printing press.
    4. You can wear them anywhere
      Under your snowboard pants, under your favorite summer dress that you want to wear in the winter, to the grocery store, mountain biking, to the movies, anywhere!
    5. Use them to dress up or down
      Leggings are so versatile! You can pair them with our Fireside Hoodie Dress for apres ski drinks or with knee high boots and a blazer for a business casual look. They are not just for yoga anymore…
    6. They were made for brunching
      Brunch and leggings were designed with the high class lazy people of the world in mind. You’re not late for breakfast and wearing workout clothes, you’re at brunch in your best leggings. Get it straight.
    7. They make packing easy
      Great things come in small packages, right? Instead of packing bulky pairs of jeans, a couple pairs of leggings will enable you to actually fit all of your things into a carry on bag for your adventure.
    8. They can be an act of self expression
      Thinking about getting a leg tattoo? Try out the Fly Away Compression Yoga Leggings that can show you just how great it would accentuate your upper thigh. Feeling cosmic, try our moisture-wicking Galaxy Yoga Leggings!
    9. They aren’t jeans
      Jeans can be stiff, uncomfortable and you always find yourself having to cover the top of your tush. Leggings don’t wrinkle, don’t take two dryer cycles to still come out kinda-sorta dry and you don’t have to spend time trying on 32 different sizes to find the right fit.
    10. They are your entire wardrobe
      You can wear the same pair all week and no one will ever notice as long as you switch up your top!

  • Shaley Scott getting ready to release RADIATE

    akinz-find-your-wings-foundation-shaley

    First, if you don’t know about Akinz new Find Your Wings Foundation, here’s the gist from Akinz founder Suzanne Akin:

    “When I started Akinz, the company motto I created, ‘Find Your Wings’ was supposed to be about finding something to motivate you in life, to help you spread your wings and reach for the extraordinary, because life is too short to settle for the ordinary. I’ve tried to use Akinz to inspire others thru our partnerships, charitable outreach and sponsored athletes, but this foundation has been a dream of mine for some time. The biggest dreams take more than inspiration, hard work and planning, they also unfortunately cost money. I hope to be able to provide that money for ordinary people trying to accomplish extraordinary things.” – Suzanne Akin, owner/designer of Akinz –

    We created a tee from Shaley’s ‘Fly Back Home’ lyrics to raise money for her new album.

    Shaley Scott, the new Foundation’s second beneficiary, is a Fort Collins local with a sound that can be described as piano pop-rock, acoustic, and blues all rolled up into one–with memorable melodies and hooks that are hard to forget. Her use of piano with guitar, paints a melodic picture that is unique, yet recognizable. She likes to call it piano/soul…or, piano FOR the soul.  The goal of her partnership with our foundation was to raise money to produce her new album, “Radiate”.

    Well, this fast-rising electro-pop-rock star from Colorado now has all nine of her original songs in production in L.A. with top producers! The album, “RADIATE,” is sponsored by Akinz and will be released in July of 2016! PLEASE HELP US RELEASE THIS ALBUM! Your support through purchases made on akinz.com help support our partnership and 40% of sales of the Fly Back Home Lyrics shirts both online and in our flagship store go directly to Shaley’s album production costs.
