Two childhood friends have formed a toy company which specialises in selling iconic trainer designs as Lego models.

Utilising the power of Instagram, Lancashire-born John Haworth and James Philips built a company that recreates tiny Nike Air Maxes, Jordans and more, according to the Instagram blog.

Following the launch of the Mont Bloc Toy copmany in January, Haworth admitted: “It’s a long, arduous process, the average sneaker has 150 pieces.”

Based in Manchester, the company boasts 4,371 followers on Instagram.

Below are a handful of sneaker designs from the pair.
