Kobi Levi is a shoe designer. One who created a pair of high-heels that make it look like you just stepped in gum. Ooh ooh -- do dog shit next!
designer kobi levi specializes in designing unusual footwear that blurs the line between fashion and art. levi graduated from bezalel academy of art & design, jerusalem and has worked as a freelance designer since. he describes his personal shoe creations as 'artistic footwear' making each pair in his studio by hand. '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 footwearcreates a new hybrid and the design/concept comes to life. the piece is a wearable sculpture.'
Bro -- you design shoes, there's no reason to get all hoity-toity about it. I write a blog but you don't hear me pontificating about how Geekologie belongs in an art museum and reading its articles has been likened to having your eyeballs sexed by a well endowed angel (possibly Samson). Do I? I don't. But f*** that sounded good -- I might start.
