Inside more amazing footware designs and my expirence from a special meeting held last week.
Last Friday I got a chance to meet Kobi Levi among leading design bloggers from designboom, weheart, dezeen, booooooom and detnk.com at a meeting held in a studio shared by Peleg Design, Ototo Design and Customade.
One responsible for this gathering is Kinetis, a nonprofit apolitical social startup that aim to generate global awareness for the creativity coming from Israel – that’s where all these great designers come from.
Kinetis managed to gather 5 of the top design bloggers to come visit Israel for a week and explore different aspects of design, art, lifestyle and architecture exist here. Follow their websites to read about it.
Since I swear not to reveal any detail about Peleg Design and Ototo Design new products (scheduled to February 2012) I would like to share the new footware designs from Kobi Levi .(if you have not read our last post with kobi click here).

Kobi Levi, a footwear designer from Israel that just turned independent creates amazing footware designs inspired from animals, objects and even well knowen figures like Olive Oyl and Madonna. Each shoe takes about a month to prepare from scratch all hand made solely by Kobi and the end result is truly WEARABLE!!!
