Move over, LBD, fancy hairdos or gigantore blingblings!
Be the star of attention (and talking point!) wherever your feet take you. Yes, no less! It’s shoes we’re talking about.
Israelean freelance footwear designer, Kobi Levi, has created much buzz in the art galores and with international shoe-natics, all the way from Brazil, Italy and even China. A firm believer of artistic beauty, Kobi draws inspirations from the “shoe-world” and synergizes his innate talent with the technicalities of creating footwear that’s actually, wearable. The shoe ” is “alive” with/out the foot/body”, Kobi muses.
Whether its to your liking or not, the extensive variety of designs and concepts that were fused into each pair, is strangely, sane. Most inspirations come from everyday objects and beings such as animals (ducks, dogs, kittens) and even the market trolley bag. How cleverly they are being immersed into a pair of wearable footwear, is indeed the trickiest aspect of the entire masterpiece.
His quirky concepts were also featured in Alexis (Singapore-based mag, Vol. 1).
Here are some of my personal favourites:
