It's one of my best friend's 40th birthday next month, I want to buy him customised Converse, but, can't seem to find any cheaper than £400 shock
That is not an option.
I can stretch to £100 if I sell a kidney but that's my absolute limit.
Can anyone help?

Have you not thought about doing it yourself?
I wanted some for DD, but couldn't afford the prices, so I did it myself.
You can get a glue gun for about 7quid and look online for transfers, different laces etc...
DD has had so many compliments on hers and I've just done a pair for my friends DD.
Just a thought anyway smile

https://www.converse.co.uk/#/landing/create, you can design some for him on the converse website. Think they're about £50-70 but delivery is £7.50. Although I think a glue gun, transfers and bright laces sounds more fun wish I'd thought of that

I'm really not good with anything arty at all, don't want to chance ruining them myself.
Will check out links, thanks.

Honestly you don't need to be arty. You just need a Hotfix tool for £30 and hotfit Swarovski crystals. I snurk at the prices they are charging when it's so easy to do it yourself!

Basically I want these but cheaper!

I don't want jewelled, I want Star Wars/Dr Who/Muppets/Deadpool/other geeky stuff!

NettoSpookerstar Thu 11-Oct-12 16:18:57

I bought him the Dr Who ones I linked to.
He received them today, was a bit late for his birthday, but I gave him another gift the week before when he was here.

He loves themgrin
I now only have one kidney

Those boots are amazing! I'm not surprised he loves them! (At least you have one kidney left - maybe you could sell that one for Christmas!)

BunnyLeBOOwski Thu 11-Oct-12 16:37:34

Is he a comic book/superhero geek Netto???

These are amazing! DP bought the Batman ones last week. They're really well made and pretty kickass!

NettoSpookerstar Thu 11-Oct-12 16:56:23

Yep, total geek, I take the piss out of him, but he returns it in spades as I'm a total chav!
I only spent so much because it was his 40th.
I'm expecting Monaco Grand Prix tickets for mine in 5 years grin

And yes, other kidney will be paying for DD's Christmas!
You don't need kidneys right?

Schuh had them with marvel comic characters on them but not sure if still do them.

BunnyLeBOOwski Thu 11-Oct-12 18:06:52

They're DC characters. As per my link.

Awesome shoes!

Will need to get them custom made I think.
