tom yoo reveals his blueprint behind his LEGO sneaker sculptures

sneakerhead, tom yoo shares on his instagram his top 10 LEGO sneaker sculptures and the blueprint to building them from scratch, using the LEGO digital designer program. since 2015, yoo has kept up with the pop culture of sneakers and created lego interpretations for sale and partial donation to non-profit charities based in los angeles skid row. few of his most popular sculptures were adaptations of the NIKE air jordan Is, air yeezy 2, NIKE mag, air jordan IV and the NIKE mag.

listed at the price range between $2000 to $3000 for each pair, the LEGO sneaker sculptures come completely glued in a customized shoe box with a certificate of authenticity. depending on the size and complexity, each design takes anywhere between a couple days to a week for yoo to complete. find more of yoo’s LEGO sneakers here, and the downloadable LEGO digital designer files here.
