SAS - Brand Overview

Posted by Brady Stout on

SAS is a truly unique shoe maker which sets itself apart from the world of fast fashion and cheap, low quality footwear by staying steadfast with it's production of handmade in the USA comfort footwear.  San Antonio Shoemakers (SAS) has been manufacturing shoes from their factory in San Antonio, TX since 1976.  Every pair is hand-crafted and passes through the hands of up to 80 craftsmen.  This dedication to quality has led to a loyal fan base who come back to SAS because of their dedication to comfort and high quality materials.

Unbelievably comfortable walking shoes are what made SAS popular.  Today the company extends the “shoes you don’t want to take off at the end of the day" mentality into sandals and athletic shoes.  Everything that SAS does, from leather selection to lasting is done with the intent of making it so when you select SAS you are choosing the best pair of shoes in your closet.

Today, SAS remains a multi-generation family owned and operated company (much like ShoeStores.com) which keeps product quality as the top priority.  Online distribution of SAS footwear is limited to only top tier sellers and at ShoeStores.com we are happy to offer a wide selection of SAS products for sale.
