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.

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.

Defining this week’s selection of killer kicks, we take an on-feet look at Dover Street Market’s latest NikeLab Air Max 1 collaboration, as well as a pair of sought-after BAPE x Dr. Martens 1461 shoes. Next to these grails, Stüssy’s New Balance 2017 partnership circulates the selection one more time and the Kris Van Assche-designed Dior Homme Runner rears its head as one of this week’s strongest shots.

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