With over 400 million monthly active users and growing at a rate almost ten times faster than Twitter and Facebook, it is safe to say that Instagram is the most important social media of 2016. Starting out as a mobile-first platform, IG is somewhat incredibly the fourth most downloaded app of all time. But with over 80 million photos uploaded each and every day, Instagrammers are becoming increasingly selective about curating their image feeds and deciding who and who not to follow.
Always on the lookout for the hottest footwear photography from brands, bloggers and everyone in between, the AllSole team have put together our list of the seven Instagram accounts you should be following for your daily dose of #Shoeinspo.
