    Default Kobi Levi's Disney Villain Shoes

    A quirky designer has made a really wicked collection of footwear ... inspired by Disney villains.
    Israeli-born footwear designer Kobi Levi has created what he describes as 'wearable sculptures' drawing on characters like Ursula from The Little Mermaid, Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty, and the Evil Queen from Snow White.
    Each pair of shoes in his 'Witch-Craft’ series has a unique villains’ face hand-painted on the insole.

    There is a pair of Maleficent shoes which are shiny black pointy-toed complete with her stylised headpiece and cape.
    A pair of sling-back heels reminiscent of Ursula's octopus dress and body depict her character in footwear form.
    The Evil Queen is represented by a pair of heel-less peep toe shoes complete with crown ankles.
    Speaking about his designs Kobi Levi said: 'Walt Disney characters represent the ultimate fantasy world. I loved them as a child and still do today.




    'Their naivety captures and makes me feel like I'm in a magical world.
    'The Villains are special because they are iconic and interesting. They are most memorable for me.
    '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.
    'Maleficent is elegant, respectable, impressive and wise. Ursula is funny, amusing and cunning. The Evil Queen is cold, distant, majestic and beautiful.'

    Kobi Levi graduated from Bezalel Academy of Arts & Design, Jerusalem, in 2001. He specialises in footwear design and development.
    Kobi's creations were first uploaded to a blog he created in 2010. The main reason for starting the blog was that Kobi wanted to show his friends the new designs without having to send each one of them by email.
    Soon the blog took on a life of its own and positive reactions streamed in from all over the world.
    This online exposure led to Lady Gaga wearing one his designs, the double boot, in her Born this Way music video.
