Shoe Workshops

León

If you’re looking for nice, cheap and good quality shoes, León is ideal to find them. Hence it’s also known as the “World Cradle of the Shoe”. Its prestige in footwear manufacture and leather handling have made this city attractive for those who seek products that last practically a lifetime.

Many of the workshops that still manufacture footwear are family businesses whose prestige has transcended time was by. Notice this is a livestock region, which allows artisans to carry out the entire process: from treating cattle skin to turning it into other products.

With railroad arrival to León, in the 20th century beginning, shoe exports —and other products leather-made—to the United States began. Currently they reach the whole world and in the city there are markets and shopping centers exclusively dedicated to sell leather goods and all family shoes.
