Armstrong’s passion and commitment to quality make him first shoemaker to receive the prestigious honor.

Craftsman, shoemaker and co-founder of San Antonio Shoemakers (SAS), Terry Armstrong, was inducted into the National Shoe Retailers Association Hall of Fame on November 14 at a ceremony in Boston, MA. Armstrong’s posthumous induction marks the first time a shoemaker has been named to the Hall of Fame.

Armstrong joins the likes of former NSRA President William Boettge, author and footwear historian William Rossi and retail leader Lloyd W. Nordstrom, all who have had a tremendous impact on the footwear industry.
