Simultaneously skilled both in art and in cooking, Milan-based sushi chef Yujia Hu creates one-of-a-kind onigiri art. The quirky culinary artist assembles detailed miniature shoes made out of sushi ingredients—aptly being known as sushi shoes. This includes exactly what you'd expect to find in a traditional sushi roll: sashimi, seaweed, and rice.

Though the shoes' compositions are conventional, their meticulously arranged designs are anything but. By looking closely at real-life shoes, Hu can carefully craft tiny and tasty replicas of contemporary footwear fashion. From trendy basketball sneakers to casual slip-on sandals, the artistic chef's collection of sushi shoes artistically showcases today's tastes in athletic shoes.

While his sushi shoes are an impressive approach to edible art, Hu is not the first chef to dabble in sushi sculpture. Some creative cooks have transformed the traditional Japanese dish into colorful koi fish, a canvas for graphic patterns, and even mesmerizing mosaics. Like the delectable designs of his likeminded contemporaries, Hu's sushi shoes prove that anything can look good enough to eat!

Chef Yuija Hu turns raw fish, seaweed, and sticky rice into a quirky collection of sushi shoes.
