The story of the San Antonio Shoemakers™(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. After working for a local shoe company, Terry and Lew struck out on their own.

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 a corner of an unused aircraft hangar on the South Side of San Antonio. In 1976, San Antonio Shoemakers was born.

Today it is still a family owned and operated and company dedicated to making American made shoes handcrafted from only the softest, highest quality leather.

Founded in 2005, SAS Shoes Buffalo is a family-owned and operated SAS franchise. We specialize in hard to find sizes and hard to fit feet.

We take the time to measure both feet and fit your foot to the right shoe. Not only do we have a wide variety of sizes and widths, but each shoe fits differently. Our shoes are made in America so they are American sizes. Women's sizes range from 4-12 and widths slim (AAA), narrow (AA), medium (B), wide (C), double wide (D), and in some triple wide (E-EE). Men's sizes range from 6-15 and widths slim (B), narrow (C), medium (D), wide (E), double wide (EE-EEE), and triple wide (EEE-EEEE). Many customers may require doctor recommended orthotics. Inserts may require added depth in the shoe and make it fit differently, which is why some of our shoes are built with added depth to accommodate this.

Our specialty is comfort shoes, all our shoes have some degree of arch support built into the shoe with some even having removable footbeds for people with custom orthotics. Many podiatrists in the area recommend a number of our shoes for a range of foot problems such as bunions, hammer toes, heel spurs, plantar fasciosis, and footwear for diabetics. Some of our shoes are Medicare and diabetic approved. If you can’t make it in to see us in our store, we will ship to you in US and Canada.
