letter from the editor

Greetings Club Members, Can you believe we’re approaching the last quarter of the year already? If you’re new around these parts, maybe you stumbled across an Instagram post, or a repost of us clapping back at someone on twitter. However, you got here, we welcome you. Hold on to your butts it’s going to get weird. For our resident lifers well it’s a pleasure to have you here. This issue feels a little different. With the change of the season approaching it got me thinking about the changes we have undergone, and the changes still to come. It reals as if celebration is in order while also feeling like it’s too soon to celebrate. It is reminiscent of declaring for the NFL draft only to go undrafted. Sure up until this point we’ve shown…

how to keep it 100 with god

AS A PEOPLE, we tend to think that we can hide from God. Therefore, we mask how we truly feel in an attempt to conceal who we really are. But, if you know, like I know this falsehood, this deception, this level of double-mindedness that we so often possess my dear brothers and sweet soul sisters is the furthest thing from The Infinite Truth.

This wasn’t normal behavior for most people at the time. I loved the designs, colorways, premium materials and exclusivity. I was also heavily influenced by my co-workers. I was a sales associate at a sneaker store in a local mall through High School and College. If you worked in the store, it was an unwritten rule that you had to look the part. This really put me on to the world of sneakers and the culture around it. One of the best things about the culture in the early 2000s was Jordan…

why we should teach our sons it’s okay to cry

For too long, men have been taught to handle their emotions by withholding their tears with stoicism and self-reliance. But the cultural belief that crying when experiencing emotions is synonymous with weakness has long been refuted by the scientific community. We now recognize that crying not only increases attachment and intimacy among peers, but has also proven to be biologically necessary. However, this undeniable reality clashes with the outdated cultural standard for what it means to be a man. This stigma encourages repressive coping, more commonly known as the “bottling up” of emotions for the preservation of self-image, which can lead to a weakened immune system, hypertension and heart disease. In fact, psychologists suggest that crying releases both endorphins and oxytocin, which chemically ease emotional pain and make the body feel physically…
