From the ground up

We’re back with a selection of highlights from our series showcasing some of the best sneaker photos we came across on Instagram this week. By now, “floating” kicks and shots of shoes precariously dangling off buildings have become commonplace, but remain worth a look when done right.

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 a look into how the creative community captures their favorite footwear, as well as highlighting some of Instagram’s biggest sneakerheads.

Chock-full of Nike silhouettes from the Tom Sachs Mars Yard 2.0 to a pair of custom Air Force 1s, this week’s roundup was defined by understated silhouettes across an equally understated palette of colors. Amongst the aforementioned designs, ones user flaunts an alternative ASICS silhouette in a solid silver colorway, as well as a pair of Pharrell’s adidas NMD Hu Trail sneakers, which will also release in “Holi Pink Glow” as early as March 2.

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