San Antonio Shoemakers

The story of the San Antonio Shoemakers(tm) (SAS) family begins with its founders, Terry Armstrong and Lew Hayden. The two first met in Pittsfield, Maine, but their passion for making quality footwear led them to San Antonio, Texas. After working for a local shoe company, Terry and Lew struck out on their own.

They had a vision of how genuine leather shoes should be made. With determination, and the support of their families, the two pooled their resources to start their first factory in a corner of an unused aircraft hangar on the South Side of San Antonio. In 1976, San Antonio Shoemakers was born.

They started small, with just 13 shoemakers and no marketing beyond word of mouth. The SAS reputation grew and became a name people could trust for comfortable, quality footwear. In 1985, SAS opened a factory in Del Rio, Texas, keeping their business in Texas while allowing for expansion.

Today SAS, continues its dedication to quality and comfort, while expanding the brand to include dozens of new styles and colors. Now, SAS’s line features everything from walking and athletic shoes to pumps, flats, sandals, and even new boots for women. The men’s line has expanded to include walking and athletic wear to dress shoes, and expanded fresh comfort casual offerings. Every day, SAS finds a way to help you Keep Moving(tm).

    These are the cutest white sandals I've owned in a long time. I think I'm going to buy them in red as well. I can wear them for hours and my feet don't hurt. I hope SAS continues to make more fashion-forward shoes. Love the patent leather too!

    Must return because I need more arch support. The footbed is soft though as is the leather straps. Great shoe for someone who doesn't need extra support. I wear a #7.5-8 Medium & I ordered a size 8 which fit perfectly.

    Love this shoe. I decided to try a Narrow instead of Slim like I usually order. The Narrow doesn't have a narrow enough heel for me so will reorder the Slim as I should have the first time.

    Cheaply made for the price. I am returning to order a half size up.

    These are quality shoes! They are well made with good leather. Fit well right out of the box. I have a very narrow foot and these in a Slim fit well. Comfortable and well worth the money!

    I was looking for blue sandals. Unfortunately these run narrow for a wide width. Even with the buckles let out.
  • Hope Posted: Reviewer: Overall: 5 Stars Comfort: 5 Stars Look: 5 Stars
    True to size and perfect! I love these, they look stylish and fairly young (I'm 33, too young for SAS, as far as I was concerned, but too old and professional for aching feet). I would absolutely buy from this brand in the future. The high quality and extra comfort were well worth the extra money.
  • Sunny Posted: Reviewer: from Denver, CO Overall: 5 Stars Comfort: 5 Stars Look: 5 Stars
    I wear a size 4 in Women's, and a size 2 to 2 1/2 in kids. I have a hard time finding shoes that fit and are cute and comfortable. I am thrilled with my SAS shoes. I've had the black for over a month now, and have just ordered the pink. No break in time, they are so comfortable, great support. I work in a hotel, so I'm on my feet, 8 to 10 hours a day.

    Fits perfectly 10 1/2 narrow is hard to find but Zappos always has my size! Love the sandles
  • Walk Easy Posted: Reviewer: Overall: 4 Stars Comfort: 3 Stars Look: 5 Stars
    Pluses: Well sized, roomy toe bo, plenty of cushioning, good support. But--the sole is high on the outside, turning my ankles inward, so they aren't comfortable for me. (I've had the same experience with New Balance, which other people love.) Unfortunately, I have to return them.
