Sneakerhead and artist, Tom Yoo returns with another LEGO-fied sneaker, as we’ve already seen him produce classic Air Jordan silhouettes such as the Air Jordan 9 and Air Jordan 5, in addition to the Nike MAG and Yeezy 350 Boost.

Utilizing the brand new Nike VaporMax, which will officially release on Air Max Day (March 26) — Tom Yoo essentially analyzed the sneaker’s design profile and its unique characteristics, then produced a 3D rendering of the silhouette on a computer in order to execute his idea.

Requesting the appropriate type and number of bricks needed to create the LEGO sculpture, the result is a LEGO-fied art form that precisely stays true to the sneaker’s original design scheme.
