To provide our customers with sports apparel products that offer a superior fit and style using high quality fabrics constructed for comfort and durability, and to provide top-quality sports accessory products that meet the unique needs of individuals living an active lifestyle.
Athiero was born in the mind of co-founder Keith Goodnight from a lifelong involvement in sports and a personal need for apparel and accessories that cater to the lifestyle side of sports and active individuals. As a former college football player at Illinois State University, and a current parent and coach of young athletes, Keith began noticing the everyday habits and fashion sense of the “active lifestyle” individual. He began creating a line of clothing and accessories that are worn for exercise, social gatherings, playing on-field sports, coaching, attending sporting events and for simple comfort doing routine day-to-day activities. Athiero sports apparel and accessory products offer exciting designs and superior comfort that project the spirit of the athletic minded, making Athiero perfect for any active lifestyle.
