Momma, we made it! With the release of our first shoe last October, we are proud to announce that our “Colorado Eighty-Five 6,200 ft” collab with Onitsuka Tiger and Bait has made the list for top shoe collaborations of 2013 in Sole Collector magazine. The shoe also graces the cover of the newly released issue of Sole Collector, amongst many other banging collabs that came from 2013. Test your Akomplice knowledge and see if you can find our shoe amongst the pile of other dope kicks that grace the cover. Check the issue or find it online at Sole Collector.
Denver Nuggets Guard Nate Robinson was spotted on his instagram earlier today rocking the “Dark Cat” tee from our new Spring 1 Collection. Nuggets Forward Wilson Chandler (pictured sleeping next to Nate) got caught slippin’ in this pic. Apparently it’s not a good look to fall asleep around Nate, or you might get photo-bombed!
Our friends over at The Goodie Bag recently put together a dope style guide featuring some of their favorite products from Akomplice. Photographer Christopher Eades showcased his amazing skills behind the lens capturing images of model Elena Clark. Take a peek at one of our favorite images from the style guide below and checkout the full article after the jump.
Our Spring 1 collection covers the full spectrum. The collection boasts a wide variety of garments, including a goose-down coat, a belt, an assortment of hats, tees, tanks, crewnecks, and socks. A paramount item from the collection comes in the form of the Padded Mountaineer, a lightweight winter jacket that features leather elbow pads, a secret stash pocket, and hiking-boot laces as the drawstrings, which match the Onitsuka Tiger shoe that we designed for BAIT. This season, we find ourselves partnering with some of our past comrades of KIKS TYO and the Nature Conservancy. The Dark Cat and Protect Panther series serve to further the mission to protect endangered species’ habitats by giving back profits to the Nature Conservancy. With KIKS TYO, we’ve introduced a new themed capsule collection that was inspired by the Olympics. Both of our brands are known for our love of basketball, and this is apparent throughout the entire collection. Look carefully and you will see that both of our brands have our countries’ flags represented in the capsule’s color schematics. The collaborative shoe was hand-made in Japan and only offered via KIKS TYO’s distribution. The Dealer Beanie was created in conjunction with our long-term Ohio retailer, NEXT’s house brand – VOID. The other beanie cleverly features all your favorite chemical compounds. To round off the collection, we present new iterations of our classic pocket watch and pelican belt, now offered in gunmetal and suede leather, respectively. The collection drops on our webstore this Saturday, 2/22/14, at 2:22PM.
Electronic artist GRiZ has been turning heads worldwide over the past few years with his unique sound and genuine approach on making music. We recently teamed up with GRiZ to create an Akomplice x GRiZ Varsity Jacket (Banger!).
