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. For another week running, Instagram has presented a notable selection of fine kicks, from an array of rare Asics silhouettes and Virgil Abloh x Nike rarities, to a pair of never-before-seen Vans x Gucci customs. Our audience pulled out the big guns again.

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.
