CoupleOf – Israeli Indie Designer Shoes
I recently got hip to the Israeli indie shoe brand CoupleOf. With collections inspired by a mix of modern and vintage styles, these shoes are hand made under fair trade conditions.
I personally love their fun, flirty, retro styles. The low, vintage-inspired heels with the petal shapes cut out of leather are my favorite.
The company was founded in 1999 by designers Sheli Satat and Eilon Kombor, who met while studying jewelry design at the Bezalel School of Art. They somehow ended up designing shoes instead! Their shoes are not mass-produced, but made using traditional, old-world techniques instead, ensuring their uniqueness.
If you’re lucky enough to be in Tel Aviv, you can check out their shoes in person at their shop at 207 Dizengoff Street. (Address found via this site, which offers more details on where to shop in Tel Aviv!)
