It's just been announced that Custom Converse has won the Silver Award for the Online Retailer category at the Cambridgeshire Digital Awards 2017! I was nominated in the Small Business category last year but came away empty handed, so to have won the Silver award this year is amazing! There are so many fantastic businesses in Cambridgeshire, and lots of new start-up's which only make the competition tougher. Custom Converse also celebrated it's 6 year anniversary back in October, so I'm one very proud business woman right now!

If anyone was watching Loose Women this Friday then you will have seen the incredible Whoopi Goldberg receiving her London Landmarks Converse live on air! The Loose Women team got in contact with me to get a surprise gift organised for Whoopi and they requested a London theme with the Loose Women logo, and for Whoopi's name to be included somewhere on the Converse. I thought the main logo would work brilliantly as heel tags and would also leave the tongues free for personalising. The finished pair looked like this and went down very with with Whoopi and the Loose ...Read More
