It always makes me smile when I get a notification from Twitter or Facebook from one of you lovely lot out there; even more so when there's a photo attached too! Hearing that you're happy with your Converse and that others are noticing and commenting on them too is amazing. It's a strange feeling when you notice people are looking at your feet, but one which I've always loved. When I was in college I let my friends doodle all over a pair of white high tops for my 17th Birthday present. I pretty much lived in them for the ...Read More
Got some fantastic new colours for converse ribbon laces in stock: They will work really well when matched to wedding colour schemes. I've just completed 4 matching pairs for a Bride, two Bridesmaids and a Flower Girl which used the Shocking Pink colour of ribbon for the Bride and Flower Girl. Next week will see the completion of 9 out of 14 pairs for another wedding party. These glittery low tops with Swarovski toes had silver heel tags and used the new Silver ribbon lace colour to match.

A more classic approach where the heels of each shoe have been painted in a colour to match the wedding colour theme and then layered up with the couples' married name. ...Read More
Last week I answered a few questions for one of the writers on http://tha-one.com/ and the interview has been posted up today. You can have a read of what I had to say right here: http://tha-one.com/2012/08/interview-custom-converse/ Today I have painted up a pair of Finding Nemo converse. They were specifically requested to be on Green converse, but I think next time i'd put them on a blue or light purple pair to have more of an underwater theme to them. There have been plenty of new designs in the making too, so I have added all the new photos to the Gallery ...Read More
