Happy Air Max Day everyone! Hope you’re rockin’ a fresh pair of Air Maxes regardless of wherever you are. If you happened to be at the Nike Air Max Vault and HTM Kitchen yesterday you may have spotted a few people you see on tv on a regular basis.
Several athletes made appearances at Nike’s Air Max Con. Tristan Thompson (Cleveland Cavaliers), Thaddeus Young (Brooklyn Nets), Janoris Jenkins (New York Giants) and Epiphanny Prince (New York Liberty) were all in attendance checking out the scene. They took the time to tour the Air Max Vault as well as the HTM Kitchen. It was obviously a big surprise to the fans in attendance as they weren’t expecting to see any athletes there. The players also had the chance to check out some of the interactive Air-Max inspired showcases which was hosted by several Masters of Air (Christophe Roberts, Mr. Flawless, etc.). Check out the images above to get a glimpse of what it was like.
