25 Under-The-Radar Sneaker Collectors You Should Follow On Instagram


For those who spend a lot of time on Instagram and enjoy great sneaker photography, we highlight 25 under-the-radar collectors you should follow! We have to give a big shout to Andrew Furness (IG account: http://instagram.com/bloodrunsblack5) for curating this list and these are individuals who love sneakers just as much as we all do, but present them in a very appealing way via IG. With a particular affinity for trainers from brands such as Nike, Asics, New Balance, adidas and Saucony just to name a few, definitely give all these accounts a look because you won’t find too much fluff in these feeds…just terrific photos of kicks from heads all across the globe.

    Andrew is a basketcase. Look at his IG feed. He’s fighting with this one and that one. He’s calling people out. He’s getting called out. He posts pics trashing people, then deletes them. He talks about how much money he makes, how much money he spends on sneakers a month, but gives people a hard time when they try to flex a little. He’s covered with tattoos. He wants to grow a beard but can’t. He called that chick “the love of his life”, now she’s history. He lives in Canada. He’s peddling that lame “Luxe” shit. He calls people “mate” and he’s not European/Australian. He calls sneakers “trainers” and he’s not European/Australian. He wears Ewings. He says “ya bish” and it’s very corny. He thanks people for using #THEREALBLACKLIST like it means something, when it’s a hashtag and nothing else. I could go on. He needs help. This is a grown man behaving like this, mind you. #PrayForAndyFurness
