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 selection of prized kicks, we take another look at the Nike Air VaporMax Mesh CS, the Vans x mastermind JAPAN collaboration is put to the test, and silhouettes from adidas and Puma helped round it all off.

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.
