Dedicated to those that makes Pisa alive, innovated, welcoming, fun and much more in any field of any color. Every three months, I will introduce you a person with a small introduction about who they are and what they do.
Luca Nencione was born in a family of shoe designers. When he was a young boy, he used to visit his grandfather and father at their shoe factory.
When he finished school, he decided to study Agriculture, but after a year and a half, he decided he wanted to learn about the family business. A few years later he opened his own shoe company "JOYKS". When he started the company, his main clients were Japanese and Russian, and currently, his clients extend to Canada, USA, Europe, and some countries is Asia. Luca tells me, " They love our product. My team and I work together to bring to the market a product that meets the needs of our clients. We use the knowledge of the past with modern technology. In particular now more than ever. We are constantly on the move from one place to another. Travelling is a challenge when luggage is limited. Our goal is to create shoes that are part of the person's lifestyle, and individuality".
