SUSHI SNEAKERS: From Sushi to ‘Shoe-shi’ by Chef Yujia Hu

An Italian sushi chef is taking his love of the NBA to another level with his latest food creation. Yujia Hu is a Chinese-born chef living in Milan, Italy, who first gained attention for his NBA sushi faces. According to the bio on his website, he attended art school but left to work in the family restaurant. He continued to be inspired by the art scene in Milan and eventually began to use his culinary skills to create likenesses of NBA stars out of sushi. Now the food artist is back with a line of amazingly accurate sneaker replicas. Hu has taken inspiration from some of the most popular shoes in the sport, including Kyrie Irving’s ‘Kyrie 2’, James Harden’s ‘Volume 1’, the Air Jordan 12, and even Kanye West’s Yeezy 350. On his website, he sells prints of the shoes, so even if you can’t see one of his creations in person, you can at least see it on your wall.
