Design and create your very own custom trainer - truly one of a kind.
WHAT'S THIS ALL ABOUT?
These trainers are simply the best. They tick every box. Made by you, using reclaimed leather, to your own style and specification. Fabulous for your feet, the environment and a great talking point. I mean, come on, how many people do you know who can actually say they made their own sneakers? This is a slow workshop. It will take you two days to complete the shoes, but you have a bit of work to cover. Pattern cutting, hand stitching and leather cutting.
The great thing is at the end you will have a unique pair of trainers, that look every inch designer led. There is nothing crafty about these beauties. Walk the walk made with love from salvage.
