Sneakers
From the ground up

It’s a new week, and we are back with a selection of highlights from our series showcasing some of the best sneaker photos we came across on Instagram over the past seven days. By now, “floating” kicks, killer collections, and shots of shoes dangling off buildings have become commonplace, but remain worth a look when done right.

And 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.

This week’s selection of fire sneakers was bracketed by some seriously collectible pieces, such as the sought-after OFF-WHITE Air Jordan 1, Virgil Abloh’s equally hyped Air VaporMax iteration, and a pair of KAWS Jordan IVs. Amongst this, flashes of color played a big role in each sneaker collection, from an original pair of red-Swoosh Nike Air Spiridons and the bright pink COMME des GARÇONS x Nike Air Max 180 sneakers to a sleek New Balance silhouette inspired by London’s cabs.

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