"CAMEX is an incredibly important event for our brand,” said Jukz Shoes CEO Johnny de la Valdene.
"It’s a place where we get to interact with collegiate bookstores, athletic departments and university administrators from all over the country,” said de la Valdene.
Collegiate licensing is a crucial component of Jukz Shoes’ strategy. Jukz’s shoes are a perfect fit for athletic programs. According to de la Valdene, “collegiate licenses allow Jukz to connect with students, parents, and alumni in a incredible way that was previously only available to larger companies that manufacturer overseas," said de la Valdene
Jukz knows that sports fans love their sport. They also know that people are passionate about their school. It’s a natural fit.
"The first day of the show was incredible," said de la Valdene.
Jukz Shoes was able to network with universities and colleges like Duke, Oklahoma, USC, North Carolina, North Carolina State and bookstores from colleges all across the country. Community colleges from South Dakota to Maine stopped by to check out the sports shoes.
