With another week behing us, 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. 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.
To get involved yourself, all you have to do is use the #hskicks hashtag on your Instagram sneaker posts, along with the city you’re in, and of course, your best shot of your chosen pair.
This week’s roundup of sought-after sneakers included shots of the iconic Tom Sachs x Nike Mars Yard 2.0 and Kanye West’s hugely popular YEEZY 500; both of which only made it into the hands of sneakerheads with backdoor links, lucky raffle winners, campers, and those who bit the bullet and payed re-sale value. Amongst this, we were treated to a look at a pair of Nike kicks from 1993, ASICS collections reigned supreme, and the space-age Louis Vuitton Archlight in all-black highlighted the selection.
So, without further ado, here are 10 of the best sneakers photos from this week.
