Never felt so good
In 2015, Liesel Swart established her own footwear brand; LEV’01. The starting point for the brand was a wool felt boot she made for her own use; a timeless boot, comfortable boot to keep her feet warm during cold winter days. The enthusiastic feedback from people on the street about her design that bridges the gap between comfort and fashion footwear, made her decide to launch her label.
LEV’01 boots are available in three heights (20, 30 and 40 cm high) and three colours: dark blue, dark brown, light grey. They’re all made of 100% wool felt from Finland using an ancient method. The soles and heels are made in Portugal. Lev’01 boots are made with a great eye for sustainability. They’re truly an asset for every wardrobe.
