Not only is it great knowing where your shoes are made, it’s also pretty cool to see who makes them and who is here to help from start to finish!
Let us start with the most loved member of Conker – Nettle the Lurcher.
She’s been with us for 6 years now and continues to make our customers and employees smile. She spends most of her day trotting around saying hello to everyone or lying flat out in the walkway hoping to get some snacks or a belly rub.
You can find Nettle in the shop Mon-Fri!
Katie is the lady that keeps things running here at Conker Shoes and has been with us since 2016. What job doesn’t she do? She manages the business alongside Simon (her father) and makes sure things are running as they should be. If you have a question about anything it’s likely that Katie has the answer!
Besides being the overall Conker go-to girl, Katie is an amazing chef. She can make absolutely anything, and sometimes (when we are lucky) she brings things in to share with the team. When she’s not working or cooking Katie is always up for an adventure, exploring the beaches around the South Hams. Her hands are now pretty full with her daughter who is keeping her on her toes.
This creative Devon chap has been with us for over 4 years and is a great asset to our company. You will find him in the workshop working alongside Katie, Simon and Shona. He works hard making bespoke shoe patterns, cutting insoles, assembling sole units, and building lasts (along with the daily workshop tasks).
In his spare time, he is often working on his trike, bike, or van, he is definitely a big petrol head! He also plays a weekly game of darts with a team for a bit of fun- sometimes they even manage to win a game!
Simon has owned Conker since 2006 and has been successful in keeping the much-loved Conker brand going. His background is in building so if you need something done around here Simon is the man to ask!
If you’ve visited us you will know that his pride is his motorbike. You will find Simon doing a bit of off-roading down the Devon lanes, walking on Dartmoor, or taking Nettle for a stroll on the beautiful South Devon beaches.
Donna has been with us since 2023 and is mainly in the shop answering your phone calls, emails and fitting shoes!
Shona joined our team in 2023. You will find her in the workshop cutting, prepping and stitching the shoes alongside Christian. In her spare time she is into pottery, exploring the lovely beaches and swimming in the sea. Shona is always smiling and brings lots of joy to the workshop.
