We love seeing how folks use the Instagram API to create compelling visual experiences for their fans. For their “Shoes About Town” campaign, luxury retailer Bergdorf Goodman has created an interactive map that shows Instagram photos of shoes in, and around, Manhattan.

Beginning today, we invite you to join us in the charting of shoe obsessions via Instagram. Using the Instagram iPhone app, photograph your shoe in its natural territory, hash-tag it with #BGShoes and enable Instagram’s geotag so your shoes have a place in or surrounding Manhattan. Those photographed will appear on our interactive map of shoe fanaticism and may even find a place on the walls of our store. We can’t wait to see where your shoe obsessions take you.

Check out 5th/58th, the Bergdorfs blog, to read more about the project.
