Emilio 'Gino' Pucci is a migrant success story in Australia. He migrated from Florence, Italy in 1970 and established his shoe factory in Sydney. Gino Pucci trained in science and architecture at Florence University and later became a partner in a shoe factory and fashion label in Florence.
Pucci brought his design influences and technical skills to the Australian shoe industry, and his shoes and factory became so successful that the ‘Gino Pucci story’ was produced by the Immigration Department to attract other immigrants.
Gino Pucci was the first in Australia to introduce platform shoes made out of leather and cork units. His creations are deeply influenced by the European trends combined with the convenience, comfort and durability of everyday wear. They are a great range at great prices.
The exotic colors are inspired by the by the Mediterranean hues, Tuscan landscape and Florentine patterns of his country of origin. A pair of Gino Pucci shoes provides glimpses of a leisurely European holiday in everyday wear.
