kobi levi: shoes

‘chewing gum’ by  kobi levi, 2009 (leather)

designer kobi levi specializes in designing unusual footwear that blurs the line between fashion and art. levi graduated
from bezalel academy of art & design, jerusalem and has worked as a freelance designer since. he describes his personal
shoe creations as ‘artistic footwear’ making each pair in his studio by hand. ‘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.’
