Our Favourite Instagram Accounts for The Coolest Shoes

Instagram is a massive social platform – in fact, not only is it incredibly popular domestically in the United States, but BrandWatch posted an article back in 2016 with the incredibly eye-opening statistic that 75% of IG users are based elsewhere in the world. This means that for many people starting out, it might be a very good idea to buy Instagram views online.

With well over 40 billion uploads, it can make it hard to find what you’re looking for. The number of accounts and brands using the app is incredible, and some of them have an enormous presence. For example, National Geographic has well over 48 million followers! This is especially true if you’re trying to narrow your search down to a specific niche such as awesome footwear.

Luckily for you, we’ve compiled this list of our favourite Instagram accounts for sharing the coolest footwear.

@Coveteur

The Coveteur is a website which focuses on tasteful and subtle fashion trends. Every day, they upload a batch of photos showcasing some of their coolest discoveries. Their choices for footwear often focus on low-key, and often pseudo-vintage finds.

They don’t specifically post images of shoes, but when they do they’re often of the variety that you would see at a high-class reception; they’re exquisitely crafted, use the finest materials, and can compliment just about any outfit.

@ronniefieg

Ronny Fieg is a particularly interesting character. When he’s not living a life of luxury, jetting off to incredibly destinations and posting about it on Instagram, he can be found working hard on the shop he owns or designing for brands like Puma, New Balance, and Adidas.

His Instagram account is a treasure trove of awesome sportswear and unique sneakers. His use of light filters provides his shots with a vintage and nostalgic feel.

@glasgowrob

“Glasgow Rob”, as he is known, is a self-defined “New Balance Obsessive”. His endless feed often features shots of his incredibly large collection of the brand’s footwear (which was the ‘sole’ star of a dedicated New Balance exhibition he put on in Glasgow, Scotland).

His use of unique photography angles, his vast collection of products, and his good sense of humour mean that he’s well worth checking out if you want to see how a true Instagram shoe OG does things.

@victorkan

Victor Kan works directly with Ronny Fieg who we mentioned above. Together, they’re responsible for designing the KITH brand, which has seen some of the most innovative fashion statements in recent years.

If you’re looking for great pics of classic Nikes, Aasics, and Adidas shoes, you should check out his Instagram feed.

@dylan_ratner

Dylan Ratner is unique in that his obsession for Air Jordan’s borders on the absolutely insane. In fact, his collection spans well over 30 years, and is an almost complete collection of both adult and child-sized models. He also possesses a pair of the original Air Jordan IIIs, as well as some rare sample shoes that never made it into mass production.

If you’re into Jordans, following his Instagram feed is an absolute must.

While there are an endless amount of awesome IG accounts showcasing some of the trendiest shoes on the market, we’ve done our best to provide you with a handful of our favourites to get you started. Keep checking back for more great content!
