Exclusive UK debut for Kobi Levi's surreal shoe pop up

— 18 October 2012

Selfridges is excited to welcome the pioneering and entirely unique Israeli footwear designer, Kobi Levi, into the London Shoe Galleries. The exclusive pop-up boutique marks the UK debut for the surreal footwear art.

Whilst sharks, mallards, cheerleaders and Madonna might not be typical reference points for shoe design, Kobi Levi looks to diverse and unexpected places to inspire his hand-made creations which fuse footwear and sculpture.

Each of the 25 styles, including the double boot seen in Lady Gaga’s Born This Way video, is exclusive to Selfridges and a limited-edition - with only twenty of each being available globally.

Helen Attwood, Buying Manager for Shoes at Selfridges, comments: “We’re so excited to bring Kobi Levi’s designs to a wider audience as the first UK stockist of the collection. The Shoe Galleries was designed to be a home for the most creative and pioneering talent in footwear design, and Kobi’s work is a perfect fit for that purpose."

Kobi Levi told us: "I'm just thrilled to bring my designs to Selfridges! This is a dream come true for me. I invite all women to visit, feel the shoes, see how real they are and try them on. I can't wait to hear the reactions.

Find the exclusive Kobi levi pop up boutique in the Shoe Galleries on 2 from Monday 22 October.
