Freelance Israeli shoe designer, Kobi Levi, specializes in artistic-styled footwear. Check out his "bird series" that draws inspiration from the recognizable shapes and colors of swans, mallards and toucans. Levi goes on to explain how the shoes somewhat have a life of their own:
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.
