Once again, Sole Shots gets global, with submissions pouring in from Canada, Germany, Australia and Kuwait this week. Toronto’s ‘Uncle’ gives us a look at the Nike Hyperdunk 2010 produced exclusively for the 2010 Maui Invitational in Hawaii. Aussie Blake Davis shows off his son’s DC Comics Chucks, while Al in Kuwait goes waterside in the ‘Flint’ Air Jordan XIII. Blake isn’t the only photographer sharing photos of kid’s shoes – 4DRUMZ snaps a photo of the original Nike Air Diamond Turf in an infant size.

Check out these photos and more from members of the Sole Collector Forums and beyond in this week’s Sole Shots.

Sole Shots continues to turn up the dial with another healthy round of sneaker photos in this week’s edition. Runners are definitely making their presence felt this week, with models from Saucony, New Balance and Nike being featured. We get a great look at Jose Calderon’s Li-Ning signature shoe, the Yu Shuai VI, which is currently available on the U.S. market. Perhaps best displaying the diversity making its way into Sole Shots is the debut of the classic Sperry Top-Sider boat shoe.

It’s fascinating to see the year-to-year growth of sneaker photography, which has certainly expanded beyond a casual snap of your latest pick-up into a legitimate art. If you’re a member of the Sole Collector Forums, you’ve probably seen some of the Sole Shots photographers develop their craft over the years, frequently improving the quality of their images and raising a collective bar within the sneaker community. As a result, newcomers to sneaker photography have great precedents to live up to, inspiring them to take on challenging concepts right out of the gate.

Hopefully the latest round of Sole Shots inspires you to go out and be great. The talent level is as high as it has ever been and will only increase from here on out.
