A WREXHAM-based custom design shoe business has witnessed a soar in AFC design requests since the club's promotion back in April this year.

'Zebra Customs' is owned by John White, 27, who hand paints each design according to the customer's request. 

The Leader:

John started the business back in 2020 at the beginning of the pandemic lockdown. 

He said: "From professional fighters to professional footballers, from the older generation to the younger generation. I have been fortunate enough to reach many different people doing what I do, and still always chasing the same reaction.

The Leader:

"I get so much fulfillment out of doing this, and wish to continue for a very long time."

John has made custom designs for Wrexham AFC players such as Paul Mullin, Elliot Lee and Ollie Palmer.


The latest design featuring a Wales and USA mash up including Super Paul Mullin and captain Phil Parkinson are being shipped to the States for a Wrexham fan. 

John said he has already sent a few pairs out to the states which he describes as being 'quite crazy.'

Requests tend to fluctuate throughout the year being very high in demand at the moment due to the exposure the club is getting.
