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 first sneaker roundup for the new year, this week’s selection features a pair of rare Air Jordan 1 kicks, a murdered-out Raised by Wolves x Reebok collaboration, as well as a pair of fierce Bodega Saucony runners. Amongst these, a pair of grail-worthy Air Max 1 sneakers makes the feature for your viewing pleasure.

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.
