In 1978, SAS, as they became known, built on a general store and retail location to their factory complex at 101 New Laredo Highway. Antiques- reminiscent of a by gone era when pride was put into all manufacturing-were collected and displayed in the store.
A visit there was always looked forward to by young ones because visitors were provided fresh popcorn, icy cokes (in the little green bottles) and peanuts in the shell. We've been sending Hidden Valley RV guests here for the past 30 years.
SAS is still an old fashioned company. They don't sell online and only recently got a website: they barely advertise- believing their product speaks for itself and word of mouth is the best advertiser. Their website has a full gallery of photos to check out but better yet, stop by the factory and see a modern shoe factory with old fashioned attitude. And don't forget to try on a pair for size and have a cookie for me.
Tell us in the comments your favorite part about the SAS hoe factory or turn us on to any other San Antonio attractions you think should not be missed.
Here's an edit note since I just recently visited the SAS factory:
Wow, their shoes were always comfortable but had a nurse shoe look but they've really got some cute and professional looking heels and flats and a nice line of sporty looking shoes for men.
