The cousins of her boyfriend Travis Thompson asked Sheffield-based artists Jonezycrepz, who specialise in customing trainers, to produce this special footwear to help keep her memory alive.

Tash Mather, who painted the Nike Air Force 1 trainers by hand, said they had been ordered by Travis’ cousins, but Tiegan’s mum, Tanya O’brien, was so impressed she had also asked for a pair.

The trainers feature pictures of Tiegan, described by friends at the time of her death as ‘beautiful inside and out’, along with love hearts, images of vodka and Red Bull, a Rolex watch and a bottle of Chanel No 5 perfume, plus the words ‘RIP Tiegz’ and ‘Pretty Gyal’.

Tash said: “We often get asked to do this type of shoe and it's bittersweet as it's sad knowing someone has passed away but inspiring knowing that we are keeping her memory alive in art form for family and friends.”

Tiegan’s mum praised the ‘amazing’ artwork celebrating the life of her ‘beautiful daughter’.

Tiegan’s boyfriend, who was with her at the time, broke several bones in the crash and was airlifted to hospital in Hull.
