In 1976, San Antonio Shoemakers (SAS) started a quiet revolution in footwear offering superb craftsmanship and extraordinary comfort. Co-founders Terry Armstrong and Lew Hayden countered a national trend of diminishing quality and cheap foreign manufacturing when they began making shoes that set a new standard in footwear. Today, the company still makes handcrafted shoes in Texas to exacting standards with the very best materials available, making its own shoe forms so that it can offer an unparalleled fit—88 sizes for women and 104 for men—and astonishing comfort. Carried in 200+ SAS stores and in retailers in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Australia, Korea, Kuwait, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Panama, Chile, Israel, and England—the San Antonio Shoemakers brand is a humble American success story, and continues to be a family-owned enterprise driven by an obsession with fit and quality. Inspiring an ardent customer-base for decades, San Antonio Shoemakers continues to take extra steps, so customers can too. SASshoes.com
