Trainers have become an obsession for some people, with a lot of sneakerheads not even taking their shoes out the box. Instead they collect them like Pokemon, only letting them see light of day for the odd Instagram or sniff.
But can you blame them? With the prices of some trainers and the limited edition status of them, we'd be terrified to soil them with the outside world; it's not worthy enough.
Feel as strongly as these footwear fanatics? Then these are the Insta accounts you should be following:
