Kobi Levi

The other night while reading the Sun which I have to say pretty enjoyed in term of

content I spotted this great article about this extremely clever and smart Designer

called “kobi Levi”. Graduated from an ART&DESIGN course in Israel, his hometown,

he soon moved into the footwear design field working for warious brand all over the

world. His work are an unique example of humor and pragmatism to create a shoe.

Here it follows his own word about his works:

“In my artistic footwear design 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. It is “alive” with/out the foot/body. Most of the inspirations are

out of the “shoe-world”, and give the footwear an extreme transformation. The result is

usually humoristic with a unique point of view about footwear. Another aspect of the

creation is the realization. All the pieces are hand-made in my studio. The challenging

technical development is the key to bring the design to life in the best way.”
