Unordinary shoes by Kobi Levi

Design and shoes have been Kobi Levi's passion since he was a little boy. He created his first shoe designs during his high school days in Tel Aviv, Israel. Back then his first shoes were made of cardboard! Following his passion, Kobi graduated he graduated from Bezalel Academy of Arts & Design, Jerusalem in 2001. Since then Kobi Levi worked as a freelance footwear designer.

As his hobby, Kobi also designed unique, creative and innovative shoe styles, which challenged the standard definitions of design, art and fashion to create a niche of their own. In April 2010 he uploaded his footwear art creations to his blog and since then people's reactions streamed in from all over the world. Moreover, this over-night exposure brought Lady Gaga to use the design Double Boot in her "Born this Way" music video!

Worldwide attention and publications led to a growing demand for Kobi's artistic styles. As a result, in July 2011 Kobi opened his studio in Tel Aviv and started to offer his original designs for sale.  All pairs are made by hand from high-quality materials. Here are some of the examples of Kobi's shoe collection. Which one do you like the best?
