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. In this week’s roundup, contenders adidas and Nike go head to head in a heated battle, as the selection is balanced by strong silhouettes from both sides. Asics marks its return with a heavy-hitting KITH collaboration, and Jeff Staple’s famous pigeon branding extends far beyond the lauded Nike SB Dunk Low.

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.
