SAS Celebrating 40 Years

40TH anniversary Logo_LOCKUPIn 1976, San Antonio Shoemakers got its start on the South Side of San Antonio by two friends, Terry Armstrong and Lew Hayden. Their dream was to make quality and comfort the new standard. Forty years later, that dream is still going strong.

While our collection has grown, our styles have evolved, and our product line has expanded, we’ve stayed focused on one thing: making your comfort our goal. Join us as we celebrate this milestone of craftsmanship and design with astonishing comfort, four decades in the making.

Fine leather, quality materials, and close attention to detail are what gave SAS its humble start, and it’s what keeps our customers coming back. With every step, you’ll feel the pride, workmanship, and dedication of our employees, along with four decades of a family promise, right at your feet.

On our 40th anniversary, we celebrate your comfort and our shoes. We’re so happy to have you as part of our growing family. Thank you.



Reintroducing Siesta 40, one of our most popular and longest running styles. Originally released in 1979, Siesta grew in popularity over the years. By 1988, SAS had sold 5 million pairs of this fan favorite shoe. By 2007, that number had climbed to 15 million. With genuine moccasin construction and an all-day Supersoft® lightweight sole, Siesta 40’s popularity makes sense. This simple shoe offers the level of comfort and quality that SAS has become known for. See this old favorite in beautiful new 40th anniversary colors. Revisit the classic style and maximum comfort of Siesta.

For a limited time Siesta is available in Ruby, Blue, and British Tan. Sizes 4-12 in Slim, Narrow, Medium, Wide, and Double Wide. Contact Us for availability.
