I didn't see any good deals or even better prices here than you would find in a regular Mexican mall. Better off going elsewhere.

I ended up exploring Plaza del Zapato and the whole surrounding area. There are lots of shoes and bags, mostly synthetic and not very modern. A friend told me Plaza del Zapato was the old area, head to Mulza Outlets. It was GREAT with 100's of shoe shops- men's, women's and children's, sporting, fashion, business and cowboy boots. I picked... More

This small to medium sized leather products mall sits on the main intersection entering the very large Zona Piel. The shops are your basic corporate style without much character. From our experience, shopping the "zona" is more fun and has a great deal more character.

I think it is a nice place to shop for leather shoes and accessories. I also have to mention that you have to have the time to look around and compare prices. I spent about two hours in here and I did not get to go to every store I wanted to go (because they were about to close). Also,... More

Sure it was a two story mall with nothing but shoe stores and a couple selling leather accessories, but we found it sterile and lacking the character of the adjoining Zona Piel. The stores reminded us of just a concentration of shoe stores found in most any mall. When one leaves the mall and walks the square mile or so... More

Leon is a large city but with a nice downtown and a really beautiful main plaza. Near the bus station which is at least a mile (2 kms) from the downtown is the Plaza del Zapato which is a two story shopping mall with only shoe stores. They have men's shoes, women's shoes, athletic shoes, bargains, etc. Across the street... More
