Over 40 years ago, two shoemakers had a vision for American made, handcrafted shoes. With innovation at the forefront of their brand vision and a handful of loyal employees, they started San Antonio Shoemakers in 1976. Today, SAS still practices a style of shoemaking that many footwear companies have abandoned. Combining high standards of comfort and fit with a renewed focus on fashion, SAS makes comfort beautiful.
As our company has grown over the years, so have the tastes of our customers.
Today, SAS's line features everything from walking and athletic shoes to pumps, flats, sandals, and even a new boot for women. The men's line has expanded to include walking and athletic wear to dress shoes like the Ambassador and Diplomat to a new casual shoe, the Move On, featuring S Motion Technology™.
Today, SAS continues to handcraft our shoes from only the softest, highest quality leather. Just one pair of shoes may go through up to 100 different steps. There are 14 primary operations that take place in its factories like leather selection, die-making, cutting, lasting and more. Within those operations, approximately 80 different skilled pairs of hands are carefully constructing and inspecting each shoe to make sure the SAS shoes you choose are the best made pair of footwear in your closet. Every employee at SAS takes personal pride in creating the most comfortable shoes in the world.
