When we spotted Kobi Levi’s strange shoe designs a few months ago, we knew the experimental Israeli shoe designer was destined for big things.

Now 25 styles from his sculptural, avant-garde shoe collection have been snapped up by Selfridges, and will be available to buy from a pop up shop in Selfridges’ Shoe Galleries from October 22.

With prices ranging from £650 - £2,050, Kobi’s designs aren’t cheap, but each hand-made creation is limited edition, with only 20 available globally. And judging by the innovative designs, ranging from banana peels to sharks, footwear fetishists really are getting a piece of wearable art.

Born in Tel Aviv, Israel, Kobi started designing his surreal shoes in high school (the first batch were made from cardboard). After graduating from design school, Kobi started uploading images of his unique shoes to a blog in 2010, and his first taste of fame came when Lady Gaga used the Double Boot in her "Born this Way" music video (see below).

A studio and thousands of requests for his work followed – and now he’s being stocked in the largest shoe department in the world.

Kobi Levi said of the partnership: "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.”
