Simon Bourne

‘emotion’
ɪˈməʊʃ(ə)n/
noun 1.

a strong feeling deriving from one's circumstances, mood, or relationships with others.

I’ve always been emotional. Like many entrepreneurs, my creativity is driven by an urge to express myself. I live my life on a natural high which can often be a negative comment away from an almighty low.

I’m OK in telling you this, because it’s who I am. I can’t help it, I can’t change it. I suffer with anxiety. It’s as simple as that. But what I can also tell you is that I’m not ashamed of it, because I have realised, at the age of 32, I am who I am and I’m comfortable with it.

I struggled with my identity through my teens and long into my twenties – who was I? Why am I so different? Why am I a freak?

I created The Hand Dyed Shoe Co. as it gave me a way of expressing myself. The brand is Simon Bourne. It is to express that I am individual, unique and different to you.

In my shoes, I've created a legacy for myself, a platform to seek and walk my dreams. Emotion is a powerful thing. My mission is simple, to encourage you to express yourself, to be individual, be you.
