This Chef Is Making Sushi That Looks Just Like Sneaker Favorites

This sushi chef is taking the term sneakerhead to a whole new level.

Yujia Hu is a Chinese-born chef living in Milan, where he works as the sushi chef at his parents’ restaurant. 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 he’s re-creating sneaker favorites, such as the NMD, Yeezy and Nike Kyrie — all out of rice, seaweed and raw fish.

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.
