Onigiri Artist Whips Up Creative Sushi Sneakers

Whether you are talking about Kit Kat sushi, mosaic sushi, crazy taco-sushi hybrids, or just the traditional kind, it seems that Japan's most iconic cuisine has a simplicity and aesthetic that lends itself well to artistic interpretation. Milan-based chef Yujia Hu is continuing that trend by whipping up shoe and sneaker sushi creations, applying his culinary skill and talent as an onigiri artist to reimagine classic shoes as sushi pieces.

Here are some of his works, which you can find more of on his Instagram.
