Colorful 3D Sneaker Puzzle Modeled After the Iconic “Air Jordan” Basketball Shoe


If you’re looking for a stylish companion to the Rubik’s Cube, designer Yoni Alter has created a colorful puzzle modeled after a fly pair of Nikes. Called Air Jordan 45 High, this 3D game challenges you to assemble a high-top sneaker out of 19 resin pieces.

Created in a limited edition of 30, Alter has produced the game in a rainbow of hues that pay homage to some of Nike’s loudest footwear. Together, the pieces resemble the most iconic parts of the basketball shoe, like the strap that wraps across the midfoot. When disassembled, the puzzle looks daunting, but if you’re familiar with the sneaker, putting it together should be a slam dunk.

Alter is now taking pre-orders for his puzzle to ship in January of 2017.
