HIBBETT FEATURES FATHER-DAUGHTER DUO FROM HENRICO, VIRGINIA IN LATEST SMALL-TOWN SNEAKERHEAD

Hibbett, Inc.

BIRMINGHAM, AL – August 10, 2023, Hibbett, Inc. (NASDAQ:HIBB), an athletic-inspired fashion retailer with more than 1,140 Hibbett and City Gear specialty stores nationwide, today announced the latest release of the exclusive Small-Town Sneakerhead (STSH) digital series, celebrating sneaker culture. This episode features Kijafa McKinzie, a 44 year-old sneaker collector, husband and father from Henrico, Virginia with a passion for sneakers that spans over 27 years. “We have featured a dozen sneaker enthusiasts from small towns since we launched the Small-Town Sneakerhead project over three years ago,” said Sarah Sharp-Wangaard, VP Marketing, Hibbett. “What makes this series so great is that we spotlight diverse collectors from often unexpected towns all over the US and the feedback from the sneaker community has been tremendous.” In the latest Small-Town Sneakerhead episode, viewers get acquainted with Kijafa McKinzie, a native of Hampton who attended Virginia State University and now resides in Henrico. McKinzie’s extensive sneaker collection boasts 300 pairs, a passion that began around the age of 18. “My inspiration for collecting was initially just wanting to look good and wear what the sports stars I looked up to were wearing. When looking for shoes I’m drawn to the nostalgic feel, where I was when the shoe was originally released and the colorway and silhouette. Being a sneakerhead means knowing the history, colorways and materials and how innovative the shoe is. I feel like I’m one of the more classic sneakerheads. For me it’s just a true love of kicks,” McKinzie expressed. Interestingly, McKinzie’s 16 year-old daughter, Dylan is following in her father’s footsteps by building her own sneaker collection. “Ever since I can remember my Dad has been buying me sneakers. In the beginning, I wasn’t as interested in the sneakers and just wore them. However, after a while, I really started to get more into the different sneaker colorways and styles. Now I look for shoes that are comfortable, cute and complement my style,” said Dylan. During their visit to Virginia, the STSH crew accompanied McKinzie to his home to see his “kicks closet” with approximately 300 pairs and visited some of his favorite spots in and around Henrico and nearby Richmond. “My hometown is special because of its rich history and culture. Some of my favorite places are the Hippodrome Theater, and southern food spots like Mama J’s Kitchen in the historic Jackson Ward. They also stopped to do some back to school shopping and Dylan had her eye on some new sneakers for the first day of school. “Seeing her Mom and I on Saturday mornings trying to win sneaker raffles must have rubbed off on her. Dylan became more interested in sneakers when she got into high school and just witnessing her interest in any sneakers puts a smile on my face. We look online for new releases and discuss what she feels could work for her style. She is a simple kind of girl when it comes to sneaker’s, so she normally gravitates to styles like the Jordan 1’s, Dunks and Air Force 1’s. I’m more into OG classics and colorways. The older she gets, the more interest she has and the more I am loving it. Participating in Small-Town Sneakerhead has been a great way for us to showcase our love for sneakers,” McKinzie added. "We had the pleasure of celebrating the generational passion for sneakers through the dynamic of Kijafa and Dylan, in the humble town of Henrico, VA. In honor of the AF1 and Back to School, it was seamless storytelling, representing everyone getting ready for school shopping and style this fall, regardless of their hometown,” said Matt Halfhill, Founder and CEO, Nice Kicks. About Small-Town Sneakerhead In 2020, Hibbett launched the Small-Town Sneakerhead project to provide sneakerheads from all walks of life the platform to share their personal sneaker narrative. Produced in partnership with Nike and Nice Kicks, the series highlights the evolving sneaker scene and enthusiasts from across the country. Hibbett has featured collectors from East Buffalo, NY, Cheyenne, WY, Hampton, VA, Cape Girardeau, MO, Murphy, TX, Hopkinsville, KY, Lafayette, LA, Crosby, TX, Sandy Springs, GA and St. George, UT and Anniston, AL with more exciting stories coming soon.

Lunatic Femme: A New Dimension in Lingerie That Ignites the Soul

Lunatic Femme

Lunatic Femme, a trailblazing lingerie brand, is shaking up the industry with its unique approach to design and empowerment. More than just boosting confidence or enhancing allure, Lunatic Femme is about igniting the soul, stirring what’s latent, revealing the hidden, and inspiring self-discovery. Proudly designed and manufactured in the heart of New York City, Lunatic Femme is contributing to the city's rich history of fashion innovation. Not only does Lunatic Femme redefine traditional beauty standards as an innovative lingerie brand, but it also serves as a driving force for soul expression. Whether you're feeling shy or bold, bored or stressed, there's something for you. From multi-way bodysuits that speak volumes to changeable, detachable harnesses that channel fierceness, removable ties that ignite passion to silk and lace that foster connection, Lunatic Femme isn't just about inclusivity—it's about guiding you on a journey of erotic self-discovery. A defining aspect of their lingerie is its adjustable nature, which breaks away from the standard small, medium, and large sizes. To address individual needs like needing more room in the hips or having a longer torso, an extra two inches of space on the straps have been thoughtfully included to provide a tailored fit, boosting comfort, confidence, and exploration. Plus, many of their pieces, like the Boa High-Waisted Panty and the Champagne Room 33 Lace-Up Bodysuit, come with detachable ties. These ties not only provide additional room, but also open up a world of playful possibilities. They can be used for adventurous and sensual play, wrapped around the body for harness-like looks or compression, or applied to the body as a silky means of play, discovery, or style. This unique feature sets their lingerie apart, offering a blend of practicality, versatility, and a touch of kink, ensuring each wearer can express their soul with the pieces in a way that’s uniquely their own. It’s no surprise that the philosophy behind Lunatic Femme goes beyond just creating luxurious lingerie. It's a brand that champions the power of self-love, the freedom of soul expression, and the joy of self-discovery. Lunatic Femme encourages individuals to explore their style, ignite their creativity, and feel empowered in their own skin. In a recent interview with renowned sexologist Dr. Jess, the company's founder, Stacy Baker, shared her vision and mission for the brand. Stacy emphasized the importance of challenging conventional beauty standards and creating a space where individuals can play while expressing themselves and their sensuality authentically. “We’re a brand that recognizes and celebrates that you’re not one thing — and so your lingerie shouldn’t be either,” said Stacy. “It should be a pleasure zone where you get to explore and express the full-blown breadth and depth of all you are, in all your moments and moods.” With sustainability at the forefront of their values, Lunatic Femme uses ethically sourced, non-violent silk and ensures fair labor practices throughout their supply chain. By prioritizing sustainability, the brand aims to make a positive impact not only on their customers, but also on the environment. In the words of Stacy, “guilt has no place when you’re unapologetically sexy.” Lunatic Femme's commitment to inclusivity, soul expression, and sustainability has garnered attention from fashion enthusiasts and industry experts alike. Infusing designs that captivate with a commitment to social responsibility, Lunatic Femme is not only poised to become a leading force in the lingerie industry, but also a catalyst for igniting self-discovery among its clientele.

AmeriLife’s Senior Market Advisors Makes Big Impact Helping Ugandan Orphans

AmeriLife

Senior Market Advisors (SMA), one of the fastest growing field marketing organizations (FMO) in the insurance space and an affiliate of AmeriLife Group, LLC (“AmeriLife”), announced today the building and opening of a home that houses 12 displaced children in Uganda in partnership with Nashville-based non-profit King’s Kids Africa. At a ribbon-cutting ceremony in Uganda, SMA representatives Jeremy Tingler, Henry S. Goldsmith and Annie Cobb met King’s Kids representatives, spoke with local officials about community impact and spent time with each of the 12 children gaining first-hand perspectives on how this opportunity will change their lives. “This home is a tangible foundation for creating life-long opportunities and strengthening the community for the benefit of children in need, while also providing much needed infrastructure to foster spiritual development, education, physical and mental wellbeing and social integration,” said Cobb. The home was built in an agricultural village just outside the capital city of Kampala and is part of a larger community expansion plan led by King’s Kids Africa. That plan includes a school, community center and home, all built around the local church, which is at the foundation of the organization’s Christian-faith mission. “The impact of this home – built amidst the church, school and community center – was visible to us as we toured the area and collection of nearby villages,” added Goldsmith. “You could see it, feel it, and the kid’s overall health and positive mentality was noticeable. This demonstrated to us not only the need for continued humanitarian interventions, but the impact King’s Kids Africa is having on the children and communities where they work.” “Our continued fundraising efforts are earmarked to support the lives of these 12 children,” said Christy Boyd, executive vice president of Shared Services at Senior Market Advisors. “Building the home was the first step, but there are daily expenses to running a home and providing for these children as they grow through the King’s Kids program. Our support continues.” AmeriLife and its network of affiliates have a long history supporting dozens of local, national and international non-profits including charity:water, Feeding America and St. Joseph’s Hospital Foundation, among others. “All of us at AmeriLife are very proud of SMA’s commitment to community and humanity, and its continued demonstration of our shared values, wherever help is needed,” said Scott R. Perry, chairman and CEO of AmeriLife. “We congratulate and celebrate the SMA staff and leadership for the transformative differences made in the lives and future of these 12 children.” To join Senior Market Advisors in supporting King’s Kids Africa program in Uganda, please visit www.kingskidsafrica.org or contact Christy Boyd at cboyd@seniormarketadvisors.com. ### About Senior Market Advisors Senior Market Advisors (SMA), a Medicare FMO, has been a leader in profit management since 2007, driven by hard work and a commitment to “doing right” by the consumer.
