Sushi Chef Incorporates Sneakers, Streetwear and Pop Culture Icons Into His Edible Creations

Finally, something resellers can’t ruin.

Food & Wine just published an abbreviated story on “shoe-shi” chef Yujia Hu, who likes to incorporate various pop culture elements into his edible creations.

The result ranges from NBA superstars and internationally-renowned artists and actors, to streetwear apparel and popular sneaker silhouettes, all made from sashimi, seaweed and rice.
