About the Strong Athletic Austinite Performance Racerback Wicking Tank in Black with White Ink
There is a very strong debate about what it means to be from Austin. How long should you have lived here? Should your family be from here? Are you allowed to call yourself an Austinite after living here for one year? 5 years? 2 decades? Strong Athletic owner Nadia Kean was born in Spain, however she got to Austin when she was 2. She has great respect for the original inhabitants of Austin, the ones who called Texas home for thousands of years and who were ultimately pushed out or killed by new arrivals. Because it is impossible to truly claim Austin as home for most of us, it seems that as soon as we don't have any other place to call home, that this should be it. This tank is for all the Strong Athletic Austinites who have pride in their city and who want to tell the world that they, just like the words across their chest and the city that they live in are Strong and athletic.
This design is based on the original Strong Athletic T-shirt created in 2013 by Cristen Perks for Strong Athletic. The words "Strong Athletic Austinite" are printed in white ink inside of a massive shape of Texas that sits on the front of the tank and the Strong Athletic logo is printed on both the front and the back of the tank. The Strong Athletic logo was designed by Angel Ortega of Garzig Design.
