Kobi Levi

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stepping into Kobi Levi’s shoe studio must be like entering a sort of magical footwear playground, where feet are invited to dip themselves into tongue-poking booties or get fruity with a pair of banana slip-ons… wild.

Eccentric Israeli shoe designer Kobi Levi‘s school of thought is hey, shoes aren’t just made for walking, they’re made for staring at. And if you took a stroll down the street in a pair of these, you would attract some serious attention.

Levi marries footwear with sculpture and the result is these crazy badboys. All of the pieces are handmade in his studio, where he works in the hope of creating shoes which are ‘alive’, with or without the foot.

“The shoe is my canvas. the trigger to create a new piece comes when an idea, a concept and/or an image comes to mind. the combination of the image and footwear creates a new hybrid and the design/concept comes to life. The piece is a wearable sculpture.”

Pure genius.

    Initial reading of this item made me think, here we go, another self indulgent shoe maker but then I scrolled down the five fave pics to find the doggie scooby doo’s and …..whooaah…. I love them, need them, want them!!!!

    Saving pennies has begun…!

    Keep bringing us quirky designers Robyn, there will be nuggets of gold to be discovered!
