Tom Yoo is an artist with a very specific specialty – he creates Air Jordan replicas out of LEGO. And his latest joint is now online, a LEGO Air Jordan V “Grape” in glorious white, blue, and purple bricks.
The LEGO Air Jordan V “Grape” has for its source material a good sneaker for a LEGO replica, because it has visual details that make an interesting transition to LEGO, such as its distinctive lacing system, its Air Jordan unit, and (most of all) its translucent outsole. It probably wouldn’t be very comfortable to wear, but they look pretty cool.
You can see the LEGO Air Jordan V “Grape” for yourself in the gallery below. And if you want to make your own one day, you’ll have to support its LEGO Ideas campaign here and add your name to the list of signatures sometime between now a year from now, when the petition comes to an end.
Here’s the gallery:
