Kobi Levi

18 Jul

I don’t know the ins and outs of the Israeli shoe designer scene, but I’m pretty sure this guy is ROYALTY.

Kobi Levi graduated from Bezalel ten years ago, and has since collaborated with apm Hong Kong, been featured in this fruity exhibition in Switzerland, and others in sleepy little towns like Berlin, Tokyo, and Verona.

I know you wouldn’t pick it, but Levi thinks of shoes as a “canvas” and, actually, prefers the words “wearable sculpture” to shoes.  He’s also partial to dogs.

Levi is currently developing his own women’s shoe line in Tel Aviv. Til then you’ll just have to save your pennies (hundred thousands?) and have some custom-made.  Because there’s ALWAYS an occasion for shoes like these.
