San Antonio Shoemakers, also known as SAS, began as a small business in 1976. With a background in shoemaking and a passion for quality footwear, founders Lew Hayden and Terry Armstrong started their first factory in the corner of a vacant aircraft hangar in San Antonio, Texas. From these humble beginnings, one of the world's premier comfort shoe brands was born. In the beginning, SAS's reputation grew via word-of-mouth alone, and eventually their success allowed them to expand and grow. Today, SAS shoes are beloved by customers in the U.S., Canada, Australia, Korea, Israel, England, and many more nations all over the world.
There are three main reasons why our customers love SAS shoes: comfort, fit, and quality. All SAS shoes are handmade with pride, whether in their original San Antonio factory, in Del Rio, TX, directly across the border in Acuna, Mexico, or by their partner manufacturer in Italy. The beauty, durability, and exceptional fit of SAS shoes is all thanks to their meticulous handcrafting process, which can involve up to 80 skilled workers and 100 production steps for a single pair of shoes. SAS offers an unbeatable range of sizes and widths for both men and women, so you can always find an SAS shoe that is perfect for your foot's unique shape.
With a wide range of sandals, slip-ons, dress shoes, boots, and work shoes for men and women, SAS can fulfill all your footwear needs. For exquisite craftsmanship and dependable comfort, trust San Antonio Shoemakers.
