Sneakers
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.

Marking our second sneaker roundup for the new year, this week’s selection features a lot of rare silhouettes, including the sought-after Air Jordan 1 “Royal,” a number of models from Virgil Abloh’s hugely successful, “The Ten,” as well as some users mixing and matching their adidas kicks; perfect for those days when you can’t decide which pair you want to wear.

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.

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