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 moons, diamonds and triangles as well as the classic round shapes. The toes of the shoes also featured a large jet black swarovski crystal skull in the centre.
Kristian had said to me that he was saving them for a special occasion and what better event to save them for than the last ever premier event for Game of Thrones!
