The NBA is a league known for its high-flying plays, dunks, and clutch shots; however, a lot of people don’t pay attention to the footwear of the players. For example, Tim Duncan is known as a low-key sneakerhead. He has been known to rock the Air Jordan 11 during games and even has his own signature sneaker that is produced by Nike. But, one of the biggest sneakerheads in the NBA right now is Phoenix Suns guard Langston Galloway.
Sneakerhead Langston Galloway isn’t your average pro basketball player. Galloway’s collection of rare sneakers is so expansive, he gave away more than two dozen pairs to teammates and friends. From his Instagram page to his blog, the Phoenix Suns’ shooting guard is obsessed with the latest sneakers. Like your typical sneakerhead, Galloway appreciates style and getting noticed for wearing new shoes.
Galloway has around 2,500 sneakers in his collection, which is one of the largest of any NBA player—and possibly any athlete. It’s almost as if he has a new pair for each day to last him seven years, which is actually a close estimate. He won’t be one of the sneakerheads worrying about his sneaker stash if we face a zombie apocalypse. An avid sneakerhead and streetwear culture fan, Galloway regularly posts sneaker photos on Instagram that garner a lot of attention for their unique designs. One pair features a pair of Nike Air Jordan 1s that Galloway has painted over in metallic silver paint and topped with a pair of blue Nike Air Max LeBron VII laces. This player has both talent and taste.
