We are very excited to be hosting cutting-edge Israeli shoe designer Kobi Levi at the Levis JCC’s Nathan D. Rosen Museum Gallery Jan. 8 – 13, 2017 for his U.S. debut. Kobi Levi’s wearable art is revered for its whimsical nature and custom craftsmanship. His creations transfer the essence of daily objects such as bananas and birds, cheerleaders, chewing gum and coffee, as well as fantasy and glamour, into the shape of shoes. Celebrities including Lady Gaga, Whoopi Goldberg, and Fergie have been seen wearing his limited edition designs.

Kobi Levi’s “wearable art” shoe designs are revered for their whimsical nature and masterful craftsmanship. His creations transfer the essence of daily objects such as bananas and birds, cheerleaders, chewing gum and coffee as well as fantasy and glamor – think Disney characters and mother/daughter duos – into the shape of shoes. Celebrities including Lady Gaga (Double Boots), Whoopi Goldberg, and Fergie (Chewing Gum) have been seen wearing his designs. The Kobi Levi “pop up boutique” at the Rosen Museum Gallery in Boca Raton will feature 30 unique pairs of hand-made, custom shoes.

“My inspiration for a new design originates from a simple concept or image and then the shoe becomes my canvas,” Kobi Levi explains. “My work blends the boundaries of art, design and fashion, as I relate to aspects from all three fields. I am thrilled to bring my visually humoristic footwear to the U.S. and excited to be launching two brand new designs at the Levis JCC!”

About Kobi Levi:

Design and shoes have been Kobi Levi’s passion since his childhood in Tel Aviv, Israel. After his graduation in 2001 from Bezalel Academy of Arts & Design, Jerusalem, Kobi Levi worked as a freelance footwear designer. During this time, he learned the trade secrets of shoe development and craftsmanship, while spending his leisure time designing unique, creative and innovative shoe styles, which challenge the standard definitions of design, art and fashion to create a niche of their own. It was in 2010 when Kobi’s creations began to receive attention from around the world, including a spot in Lady Gaga’s “Born this Way” music video. The demand for Kobi Levi’s wearable art exploded and in July 2011 Kobi opened his studio in Tel Aviv, offering his original designs for sale. In the studio he creates, develops and produces limited editions from his designs. All pairs are made by hand from high-quality materials.
