Kobi Levi Erotic FootwearErotica // Tuesday, 27 Dec 2011
If you aren't yet familiar with the wearable sculptures of Kobi Levi, now is the time to get to know them. His impressive creations, namely his erotic works 'Blow' and 'XXX' shoes are both gorgeously designed footwear and works of art. As if women's stilettos weren't already sexy enough.
"In my artistic footwear design 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 footwear creates a new hybrid and the design/concept comes to life. The piece is a wearable sculpture. It is "alive" with/out the foot/body. Most of the inspirations are out of the "shoe-world", and give the footwear an extreme transformation. The result is usually humoristic with a unique point of view about footwear. Another aspect of the creation is the realization. All the pieces are hand-made in my studio. The challenging technical development is the key to bring the design to life in the best way."
