Golden shoes for Jessica Ennis
A Notts shoe maker presented Olympic gold winner Jessica Ennis with a pair of handmade golden shoes.
Peter Bullock gave the heptathlon gold medallist the gift after guessing her shoe size from photographs. He presented the shoes to her at a homecoming event in Sheffield last month where 20,000 fans turned out to greet her. Peter was inspired to make them for her after watching her heroics at the London Games and hearing she has a passion for fashion. Peter is also hoping to make and present gold shoes to Notts' Paralympic gold medallists swimmer Ollie Hynd, sprinter Richard Whitehead and dressage competitor Sophie Wells.
Peter runs Peter Bullock Fine Shoes in Low Pavement, Nottingham and has a reputation for handmade brogues.
Ms Ennis also received a pair Golden trainers from adidas
