Regardless of how you feel about it, flexin’ for the ‘Gram is now just as much a part of the sneaker game as resellers and long queues on Friday and Saturday mornings. With this in mind, one firm in the US has profiled the Instagram habits of sneakerheads to determine what exactly is the most popular pair on the social media channel.

Venngage started by profiling what they determined to be the top 10 sneaker Instagram accounts; snkrhds, sneakersnstuff, sneakersjeansts, sneakerroom, sneakerpolitics, SneakerNews, sneakerfreakermag, livestockcanada, kicksonfire and Kicks. From there, the scoured mentions to find which sneaker had been posted the most.

The results are surprising, as the ASICS Gel Lyte III comes out on top with 26 mentions, with the Yeezy Boost a close second at 24 mentions. 

Venngage has chosen to crown the Gel Lyte III Instagram's top sneaker on account of mentions, but in terms of the Likes generated by posts, the Kobe 11 blows the competition out of the water with 554,675 double taps.

The infographic also measures the current resale value of the sneakers compared to the original retail price (in US Dollars). You can see it below, or check the full report here
