Akron is on the rise, and it's time to take notice! One way you can tell this is certain is by seeing more and more people donning Akron-themed and Akron-made digs from the small downtown boutique, Rubber City Clothing. As a new employee in downtown Akron, this much needed retail shop caught my eye and has stolen my heart.
Located right by the Akron Museum of Art and the out-of-this-world restaurant Crave, Rubber City Clothing is definitely worth a look! Rust belt pride is in, and there is no better place to get Akron apparel than at Rubber City Clothing.
RCC has everything from t-shirts to hoodies to baby onesies - all with witty and creative Akron themed designs, such as my personal favorite "Jesus Loves Akron." I stopped in the store and in no time purchased the "Enjoy Akron" shirt, which takes the recognizable design of Coca Cola and spices it up to give it the attitude of the historical "Rubber Capital of the World."
Other spirited designs are: "Raised in Summit County," "Do Not Park on the Devil Strip," (which references a well-known colloquialism in the Akron area), "The North Hill" (a neighborhood in Akron with a design resembling the popular clothing brand The North Face), A K Rowdy (what the kids call Akron), "330" (the area code), "Route 8" (the major area thoroughfare), "I Heart Akro-Americans," a shirt with a tire-tread design, and the famous Goodyear Blimp design, to name a few.
