Living Shoes

On the theme of hybrid bodies, (or 'things-that-look-like-other-things-and-blow-my-mind') check out these shoes by designer Kobi Levi.


Market trolley:
And the 'Double Boot,' which makes you look fabulously mutated:

Levi explains that his philosophy is inspired by notions of hybridism, and the independent 'life' of the shoe as an entity:

"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."

I think Levi and Insa should join forces. Check out his blog for more creations.
