As expected, Highsnobiety’s #hskicks community pulled out the big guns for this week’s selection of the best Instagram sneaker shots. Featuring everything from custom Air Max 1s, to multi-colored New Balance gems and clean, graphically-charged adidas silhouettes, our roundup paid respect to a handful of Instagram’s biggest sneakerheads, and celebrated the art of modern sneaker photography.

Among the aforementioned silhouettes, we are treated to a closer look at Nigel Sylvester’s sought-after Air Jordan 1 collaboration, Nike’s high-energy Air Max Deluxe made it to the feature of this week’s selection, and adidas Originals empowers its wearers with typographic embellishments over the top of its Pharrell-endorsed NMD Hu silhouette.

To get involved yourself, all you have to do is use the #hskicks hashtag on your Instagram sneaker shots, along with the city you’re in, and of course, the best shot of your chosen pair.

So, without further ado, here are 10 of the best sneaker photos on Instagram from this week, including the pairs mentioned and a heap of others to kick off the new week on the right footing.
