Air Max Day. It’s not an official holiday, and you probably won’t be able to skip work by telling your boss you plan on celebrating it by breaking out your freshest pair of Air Max’s. But for many sneakerphiles (‘sneakerhead’ is so played out), their love of all things Air Max is a religion to them.

NBA guys are no different. We caught up with the Cavaliers’ J.R. Smith, and the Knicks’ Langston Galloway (quietly one of the NBA’s biggest sneaker lovers), to get their thoughts on why the Air Max has remained so iconic over the years, their favorite models and more.
