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:


::Olive Oyl:: It's good ole Popeye's lady! Minimalist and nothing too OTT, which adds a nice touch to any dress..::Blond Ambition:: For the daring one! Definitely a statement piece - comes equipped with a mic, mirroring the stereotypical personalities of blondes? Love the shiny gold and its pointy tip which would make a great pair to take you from boardroom to play; pants suit or dress, effortlessly!

::Slide:: Brings back those childhood memories of playtime, this pair lends a playful touch for the cheeky lady who has no qualms of projecting a less serious side. Love the bright, cheery hues!

::Sling-Shot:: On closer look, this is actually a wearable catapult! How clever! Conjures a nice white grecian toga dress to go with this simplistic pair.

::Chewing Gum:: OK, i did laugh when I saw this one. Literally walking with a hardened piece of gum stuck on your shoe. Looks great with dark denims, and loving its easy to match colours too!

::Market Trolley:: Marketing has never been this stylish - roll, i mean, stroll to the market with this pair, and don't forget the matching trolley to go along!
