Israeli designer Kobi Levi doesn’t just create shoes, he designs works of art that can be worn on the feet. Whether it be a banana, a Stradivarius violin, a Girl Scout Uniform or a Disney villain, his inspiration seems to come from all walks of life. Kobi describes his creative process in a TEDxBucharest talk in 2012.
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.
