Kobi Levi Shoe Designer

May 16, 2011

Kobi Levi graduated from Bezalel academy of art & design, Jerusalem 2001.

He specialized in footwear design and development, working as a freelance designer.

Collaborating with both Israeli and international companies,  Kobi is currently working

on his women shoe line in Tel-Aviv, Israel.

He has designed commercial footwear in both Italy, China and Brazil. Presented design in various

exhibitions in Tel-Aviv, Jerusalem, Tokyo, Verona, St.Etienne, Berlin etc’…

” 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. All the pieces are hand-made.

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

They’re not Jimmy Choos…..  but they’ll also get you noticed.

Banana anyone ? ……. you must be quackers !
