From the ground up

Another week and we’re back with the highlights from our series showcasing some of the best sneaker photos we come across on Instagram each week. By now the “floating” kicks or shoes dangling off a building looks are commonplace, but when done well they’re still worth a look.

Whether it’s a glimpse at the latest hype release, something super rare or simply a stunning shot of a more common pair, we’re looking to bring you look into how the creative community captures their favorite footwear, as well highlighting some of Instagram’s biggest sneakerheads.

Without further ado here are 10 of the best sneakers photos of the week.

For consideration in future editions tag your photos with #hskicks
