Carbon Offsetting

Posted on

Capturing and storing carbon in the atmosphere is vital in the fight against climate change. By making a donation to the Woodland Trust, you'll help plant trees and protect woodland across the UK, locking up carbon and creating havens of green space for wildlife and people. I have introduced a new shipping option which will allow you to make a £1 donation when placing your order. This will help to offset the carbon footprint created from the shipping method and packaging used to deliver your order. The mailing bags which are currently used by Custom Converse are already produced from ...Read More

Rocking the Red Carpet

Posted on

As part of his entirely bespoke outfit for the Game of Thrones Season 8 Premiere in New York, actor and DJ Kristian Nairn aka Hodor rocked a pair of Custom Converse! I created the pair for him last year using the Monoblack low top Converse and covering them in thousands of swarovski crystals, all individually glued on by hand - which for a size 16 pair of shoes was quite a task! To give the shoes some texture and help them to really catch the light I mixed up both the size and shape of the crystals using stars, crescent ...Read More

As Worn By…

Posted on

Style, beauty, lifestyle and travel blogger Elle Next Door (Ellie) has recently been rocking her pair of Storm Pink high tops customised with The Rolling Stones tongue and lips logo.   Her gorgeous instagram page is a wash with colour and life, showing off the cutest places in London and around the rest of the world and I just knew that a pair of Custom Converse would fit in perfectly! We spent a bit of time discussing the design and colour options and finally settled on a pair which would fit in with her wardrobe. Here she is enjoying her ...Read More

New Products

Posted on

2019 is the year of new products here at Custom Converse. I've been working on more pairs of Vans, Nike Air Force 1 and Superga and painted designs onto baseball caps, purses and will be soon taking on a mini backpack! The best way to keep up with everything is to follow me on instagram where I'll be posting updates from the studio including time lapse videos of pairs being painted. There's always plenty of new design ideas appearing, the latest of which is a cool white on black theme based around Sam Fender's song Hypersonic Missiles which has been on ...Read More

Nike, Vans and more!

Posted on

I'm branching out! After a few requests for custom pairs of Vans (the Britney Spears Baby One More Time design being extremely popular) I've got a few new options added up to the shop. The order pages are designed with Converse in mind so don't fit exacty to other shoe styles which makes life a little tricky but we can work around it, and if you get really stuck just drop me an email and we can discuss everything.   The ruby red Glitter Vans looked amazing and I can't wait to make up more pairs. There are plenty of ...Read More

Celebrating 7 years in business!

Posted on

I get a bit weirded out when I stop and think that 7 years ago I created this business out of nothing as I turned 19. It's the longest I've ever spent on one thing, or in one place in my life and that's only by beating my years spent at primary school! With each year that goes by I'm picking up new skills, getting stronger artistically and slowly venturing into new areas to see what opportunities they can throw my way. I've painted over 7,500 pairs of Converse and don't plan on stopping any time soon. I still love ...Read More

Rose Gold

Posted on

Rose Gold is still the colour of the year and something that we've welcomed with open arms - it's just too pretty! Back in February we introduced a couple of new Swarovski crystal colours and the gorgeous Rose Gold option has been very popular. It's a bit of a nightmare to photograph as there's too many pink's and gold's reflecting back off the surfaces for the camera to be able to get a true reflection of how great they look in real life. Get them in the sunshine and you'll be sparkling like a Rose Gold glitterball! Finding a Rose ...Read More

The Newmarket Wedding Show

Posted on

"Oh my god, this is exactly what I need!" It was great to meet so many of you at The Newmarket Wedding Show last weekend. I threw a lot of colour into our small display stand and managed to create something eye catching and different from everything else at the show! Hopefully you were able to gather some inspiration and get a good feel for the quality of the Custom Converse we provide. It surprised me how many people were drawn to the tiny Flower Girl and Page Boy pairs, but they really are the cutest! "I came here today ...Read More
