SAS started small, with just 13 shoemakers and no marketing beyond word of mouth. Their 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. Now, SAS’s line features everything from walking and athletic shoes to pumps, flats, and sandals. The men’s line has expanded to include walking and athletic wear as well as dress shoes. They continue to handcraft shoes from only the softest, highest quality leather.
