Footwear As Art, Wonderfully Imaginative Shoes By Kobi Levi

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.
