FINIS, Inc., the worldwide leader in technical swimming innovation is proud to announce Anthony Ervin’s training suit line, designed by artist Frank Zio, now available via at SwimOutlet after initially debuting on

Says FINIS CEO John Mix, “We are beyond proud to launch Anthony’s swimwear line. Not surprisingly, the suits are a very cool design that incorporates Anthony’s style, aesthetic, and personal logo.”

The image, designed by Anthony’s longtime Cal teammate and strength coach, Frank Zio (who coaches under his given name Jeff Natalizio), has been a fan favorite for years. Says Ervin, “This suit design is the intersection of my life as a swimmer and an artist. Inspired by the ‘Jolly Roger’, the eyes are simultaneously seeing the star of fame and the vertigo of a good time,  the nose is both heart and spade for the love that buries, arrows shoot out in four diagonal directions for the creative birth of chaos.”

Adds Mix, “There are very few athletes who have their own swimwear line. We are proud that Anthony brought us this idea and artwork, and are thrilled to have SwimOutlet as a partner on the launch at retail.”
