Awesome LEGO sneaker art
Finally, a LEGO brick that won’t hurt when you step on it. However, these sneakers, the brainchild of New York-based artist Tom Yoo, are purely for display.
Yoo gained attention last year with a series of 3D models of classic Nike Air Jordan shoes. Take a look at his superbly-detailed LEGO model of the Nike Air Jordan XI, something he dubs “arguably the greatest sneaker of all time” over on his LEGO ideas page.
Now Yoo has created more 3D models of legendary pieces of footwear, including two further pairs of Air Jordans and a homage to adidas’s design classic, the Stan Smith.
If you want to own a Yoo original for yourself, a range of Air Jordans are available to buy on his website. These aren’t your average out-of-the-box LEGO kits, of course, so don’t brick it when you see the $2,000 price tag.
