Community Poll: Did Instagram Hurt or Help the Sneaker Game?

Instagram took the sneaker culture by storm since its inception in 2010. The online mobile photo-sharing, video-sharing and social networking service has been the go-to place to see whats hot in the sneaker community.

Some people would say it has been hurting the sneaker game by creating more hype surrounding some of these releases we’ve been waiting for to debut. Others actually enjoy the early photos of upcoming releases, as they use it as a guide to get organized and their money right for the shoes launch.

If you ask me I think Instagram is awesome for the sneaker game. Sure maybe all these leaked photos can get out of hand at times, specially with plenty of fakes floating around, but the idea of growing relationships with others from different states with the same interests is pretty cool. Plus when creating those relationships it can also come in handy when needing to ask a favor of one of your IG buddies for a release pickup that may be not releasing in your state, or you just simply don’t have the plug that your IG buddy does.

Like everything in life there are always pros and cons, but for me these are just some of the cools things that Instagram offers to the sneaker game. I’d like to know what you guys think. How many relationships have you’ve created on IG? How many releases have you been able to get from IG? Let us know your experience in the comments section below and if you aren’t already, please follow us on Instagram @sneakerbardetroit.
