We Introduce you to: @eatlikeyoureondeathrow__

Ro, AKA @eatlikeyoureondeathrow__ the originator of sushi kicks, is a strEAT artist who creates edible versions of your favorite kicks! The Californian Instagram artist gained her following by creating bento lunches for her son and after moving on to creating the latest hype shoes she secured a fan base of streetwear fanatics. 

We chatted with Ro to find out a little more about who she is and what she does.

Tell us a bit more about yourself and what you do?

Hi, I’m Ro, more known as @eatlikeyoureondeathrow. I’m a mom & I do e-commerce. 

What inspired you to start making, what we like to call, "shoeshi"?

I prefer to call my edible sneakers as sushi kicks. It came about when my account started attracting sneakerheads and I figured that I’d make one of the sneakers that were getting hyped at that time, which was the Nike SB Waffle High Dunk. I transitioned from doing bento lunches for my son to making hyped "sushi kicks".

What interest came first, art, sneakers or sushi? 

Art & sneakers...I have always been fascinated by modern contemporary art. Sneakers have always been my go-to even though I’m currently lacking the full closet of a true sneakerhead.

How long have you been a “strEAT artist” for?

I promoted this project after my dad passed away about 5 years ago as a cathartic way for myself, and a distraction for my mind to wander off to thinking about him as I tried to work through my grief.

What was the first sushi creation you did?

It was the Nike Air Max Duck Camo.

Jordans seem to be your go-to shoe to recreate, why?

The 1s highs & lows are the easiest and cleanest silhouettes from the Jordan brand. 

What is your dream pair of kicks?

The Nike Dunk SB Paris... but I’m dying to recreate the just auctioned off moon shoes owned by Jordan Michael Gellar known as Shoezum on Instagram. That'll be dope!

Are you currently working on any cool collaborations?

Yes! I’m excited to be part of this dope exhibit and be in a book with other amazing sneaker artists! 

Find out more information about The Art of Sneakers book here.

What happens to the “shoeshi” once you’ve made it?

Some of the sushi kicks are either eaten and some are just grammable as I use a lot of food coloring.

What is your go-to meal?

Coffee. That’s a whole meal for me when I’m busy!
