About our story...

We are an exclusive footwear customisation brand, creating unique designs and adding vibrant enhancements to classic silhouettes that can't be purchased on the high street or anywhere else. 

January 2021

It all staeted as a hobby...

Mark would customise his own shoes to make them unique to him in his bedroom at 17y/o. Friends started asking for customs while he was studying and got the ball rolling.


Our first studio

As soon as uni was completed, we moved stright into our first ever studio. Based in Manchester above a convenience store eith n central heating!


We got busy!

Due to the workload we had to get family involved. Mark's Mum and Dad started working for Customasurprise full-time to help with the increasing orders and still work full-time from home.


The team expanded

We outgrew the first studio so we moved to a bigger space where we are based now...

Tap to meet the team


At customasurprise, we believe that everyone deserves to be able to express themselves through wearable art. We know that your sneakers should be just as unique as you are. That's why we strive to offer an endless selection of custom sneakers—so no matter who you are or what your style is, there's a pair of custom sneakers just right for you.


We're not just a sneaker brand; we're a community of people who believe that everyone has the right to stand out from the crowd in their own way. We want people to feel confident in their own style and proud of who they are, whether that means being bold and colorful or quiet and subtle. We just want everyone to feel like they can express themselves through their custom sneakers and make every step a statement.

We have many great designers.
