In honor of this year's Air Max Day, renowned LEGO builder Tom Yoo chose to replicate the model that Nike calls the pinnacle of Air, the Air VaporMax. The resulting creation, measuring over 11.5 inches in length, is made up of 1,050 LEGO bricks, a good portion of which are entirely translucent to mimic the shoe's signature VaporMax platform. Check out detailed looks in the gallery below, as well as a video that depicts the construction of the sculpture from start to finish. You can also view more of Tom's work at his personal site,
