These ultra-rad paper Nike shoes are just one of the many cool hip hop-inspired paper toys that London-based graphic designer Alexander Hughes has created. Illustrated with a combination of hand drawing and Adobe Illustrator techniques, the artist masterfully reinterprets the classic sneaker with a three-dimensional, cube-shaped, paper design.

Just large enough to cover the size of you trackpad on your MacBook Air, the small decorative objects come packed in their own shoebox and would look great displayed in a college dorm room. They comes in several colors, so there are many varieties to collect as well. So if that new pair of leather Nike shoes you've been saving all your cash for are still just a little too steep in price, then why not see if you can get them crafted in a paper version made by Alexander Hughes.
