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.

And 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.

This week’s selection of fine sneakers was bracketed by a range of statement silhouettes, brought to the foreground through their use of bold coloring, notable graphic embellishments, and futuristic detailing. From a look at NEIGHBORHOOD’s most recent adidas collaboration and Gucci’s big-logo Rhyton sneaker, to more subdued designs presented by New Balance and Nike, this week’s #hskicks roundup was a trip down memory lane for many collectors, and a heavy dose of inspiration for all upcoming sneaker aficionados.

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