Israeli designer Kobi Levi, who specialises in footwear design and development, has feature on the AR once in the past with his Olive Oyle inspired high heels. Kobi treats the shoe as a canvas and each of his designs as pieces of art, often referring to them wearable sculptures.
His latest range of footwear draws inspiration from 3 classic Disney villains. Levi said of the collaboration, “My choice to work with Ursula, Maleficent and the Evil Queen was an easy one. I always loved them. Although they are all stereotypes, each one has her uniqueness and a distinct character and temperament.” Each of those characters uniqueness has been cleverly incorporated into each of the hand-crafted leather shoes, all of which feature the villains’ faces hand-painted onto the insole!
The Evil Queen is a heel-less peep toe that frames the queen’s face whilst the upper part of the shoe serves as her crown. The peep toe itself is cleverly designed so that red nail polish on your toes completes the Queens necklace.
The Ursula shoe is a sling-back sandal that represents her Octopus-like body. The front of the shoe is designed to look like the top of her dress so from a front view it looks as though she is wearing it.
Lastly Maleficent’s face is framed in this pair of scaly, shiny and black pointy-toed shoes whilst her horns wind their way up your legs.
