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).

    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

    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.

    Felt a full size larger. Stiff leather, roomy toe box, bunion on little toe rubbed a bit with thin socks. I have high arch and instep, and very-very wide feet. I wish someone would make shoes for Daisy Duck. They would probably work perfectly. Sending these back.

    This is a great all around shoe, so comfortable and easy to replace with custom orthotics. Zappos service is the best, thank you

    I have a very small foot, size 4.5 and these sandals fit great. Comfortable and cute. I'm so glad I found this brand.

    The yellow shoe in the picture looks like a cheerful comfortable thing to wear. I got the beige and black and it's so....blah. The grey soles of the black shoe make it look old and tired. The beige has no life. They both look like grandma slippers. So disappointed :( They are basically overpriced good leather home slippers. There is no arch support and the soft leather will give with wear, so there will be no support at all. Going back.

    I bought these shoes for my mom. She has a collapsing arch and has a pinched nerve between her third and fourth toes. She has these shoes in two other colors and loves them especially since they come in double wide width. She finds them extra comfortable. Zappos also has them at a great price. My mom wears these shoes out and about and her vionic flip flops indoors and has seen a significant reduction in her foot pain. Highly recommended !

    Bought these for my 93 year old mom -- they are great!! Seemed to run a little short so went up one size.

    I loved the look of this shoe and the silver color, but unfortunately, it rubbed the front of my ankle too much to be comfortable. Sending back.
