Instagram has given us many things. It's given us a place to share our lives, our dogs, our dinners and our favorite memes. It's given us another way to get in trouble with our significant others. And if you're into sneakers, it's given us a new way to show off our collection collection, or latest pickup. 

Today we're taking a look at 10 collectors from the ‘Windy City’ as we end ‘Chicago’ week. While Air Jordan collectors are fittingly what you’d expect in Chicago, there are some others out there with more variety. But don’t downplay the Jordan heads, there’s always plenty of heat to go around.Check out the 10 below, and be sure to start following them (if you aren’t already).
