Celebrating 40 Years
2016 marks 40 incredible years for SAS, and we couldn’t be more excited for everything we have in store. The story of the 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.
Terry and Lew 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 an unused aircraft hangar on the South Side of San Antonio. In 1976, San Antonio Shoemakers was born. Today, SAS has expanded to include dozens of new styles and colors, with new things always in the works.
Keep an eye out for our birthday events, because we have some surprises in store. We’re excited to share our new 40th anniversary logos, and throughout 2016, we’ll be bringing back some of our most popular heritage shoes and handbags as limited editions. These fan favorites are being revamped for their big return, so don’t miss out on these returning styles. And be sure to check back here to keep updated on all the 40th anniversary happenings and events.
The amazing growth and continued success of SAS comes directly from all of our dedicated employees and customers. SAS wants to take this opportunity to say thank you to for making these 40 years of growth possible. From our skilled shoemakers to our store employees, our continued success comes from you and every member of the SAS family. That’s why we at SAS are proud of our past and excited for our future.
