Shoe maker José Pradillo y Pedraza, born in Quintanar de la Orden, manufactured and sold shoes in a little shop named La Universal located in Madalena St. 10, which was once Cervante’s house. A year later he moved to number 13 of the same street and the shop was named Calzados Pradillo.
Shoes hanging off the ceiling were a particular characteristic so that customers could choose them easily. The clerks would bring shoes to clients helped by a wooden stick. In the 30’s, Gonzalo Pradillo, his youngest son produced shoes with an orthopedic width (some models, the high hill, and its width still exist nowadays).
