Factory Store Tours
How does SAS create the most comfortable shoes in the world? Come and see first hand where our shoes begin with a free factory tour! Each pair of shoes can go through up to 100 different steps, performed by approximately 80 different pairs of skilled hands, before they are declared SAS quality.
SAS shoemakers create our footwear one shoe at a time with the highest attention to detail and standard of comfort. See the journey our shoes take with a tour of one of the few remaining shoe factories in the U.S. You’ll be amazed to see the tireless dedication of our shoemakers and the interesting tools they use for their trade.

Additional tour information:
Tour groups are limited to 12 people. To handle larger groups, we will need to divide the tour group into smaller groups and take them on the tour consecutively.
For example: A group of 46 people would divide into 4 groups of 10 – 14 people. We would drop off the first group at Factory I, then pick up the second group from the store. The 2nd group would unload the bus at Factory I, then the first group would load the bus for Factory 2, and so on.
We cannot take groups of more than 15 at one time due to safety requirements on the bus and in the factory.
The tour takes about 45 minutes.
Children 6 years old and older are permitted on the tours. Groups of children require 1 adult for every 3-4 children, depending on age.
Wheelchairs are permitted.
