Kobi Levi's 'Blow' design, in leather

Footwear doesn't come any more creative than this!

An Israeli shoe designer has created a range of heels -- with one pair shaped like a woman's legs.

Others are based on banana skins and catapults.

Kobi Levi, who crafts the shoes from leather, wood and metal, and exhibits them around the world, makes them according to his own shoe size.

"I work on my own shoe size because I'm curious how it feels to try them on, and I won't be blamed for torturing models!" the Sun quoted him as saying.

"I often use high heels because they just look great and work well with the images and themes I create," he stated.

Prices for the shoes start at around 500 pounds.
