These Are The 30 Most Popular Trainers On Instagram

Photographed by Anna Jay.
If you haven't Instagrammed your box-fresh pair of Skechers D'Lites, Vans or Nike Cortez, do you really own them? That's the attitude of many trainer enthusiasts these days, and it explains why we've become so accustomed to seeing them on the platform.
But some pairs are more 'Grammable and popular on the social network than others, as new research shows. Fashion shipping company Forward2Me analysed the popularity of some of the most beloved pairs in recent years on Instagram and ranked the top 30.
The list is based on which shoes have received the most hashtagged Instagram posts and is dominated by adidas, with the relatively new NMD coming in first place, the adidas Yeezy 350 in second, adidas Superstars (first released in 1969) coming in fourth, and Stan Smiths in sixth place.
Nike also featured heavily, with the Air Max and Air Jordan dominating and other designs like the Huarache and Cortez also proving popular.
No trainers made by designer labels made the cut, which is hardly surprising given that most of us can't afford to spend upwards of £600 on Balenciaga's dad shoes (the Triple S didn't feature, despite their popularity in fashion circles), although the highly coveted Yeezy 350s fared unsurprisingly well in second place. We hold Kanye responsible.
