This over-night exposure caught the attention of the famed Lady Gaga, who used the design ‘Double Boot’ in her “Born this Way” music video.
Kobi observes reality and communicates this through fantasy!

Design and shoes have been Kobi Levi’s passion since his childhood in Tel Aviv, Israel. His first shoe designs were created during his high school days, and were made out of cardboard. His passion led him to the Bezalel Academy of Arts & Design in Jerusalem, and he has worked as a freelance footwear designer since his graduation.
Kobi has since learned the trade secrets of shoe development and craftsmanship. He has been designing unique, creative and innovative shoe styles, which challenge the standard definitions of design, art and fashion to create a niche of their own.
