SAN ANTONIO, Texas—San Antonio Shoemakers (SAS), the Texas-based shoe manufacturer specializing in quality, handcrafted comfort shoes, is heading to Washington, IL to deliver, fit and distribute 3,000 pairs of shoes to those area-residents that have been affected by last week’s devastating tornado.
SAS delivery trucks will be loading up with new, American made men’s and women’s shoes as well as SAS factory, retail, wholesale and management personnel to make the 1,073-mile journey to deliver the shoes to those in need. SAS focuses on extraordinary fit - offering 73 sizes for women and 89 for men - in order to give each customer the most comfortable shoes possible. Each person receiving a pair of SAS comfort shoes at the distribution event will be personally fitted by an SAS employee, to ensure that they receive the appropriate style and size for their foot shape and support needs.
"People who have been affected by disaster situations often have to spend hours, days, and even weeks on their feet, and we know that a pair of our shoes can help them to keep moving through these trying times,” says SAS CEO Nancy Richardson, who will be on-site to help with the event.
The shoes will be distributed on first come, first served basis on Monday, November 25, 8:00 am – 5:00 pm at the First Baptist Church on Peoria Street.
About San Antonio Shoemakers (SAS) In 1976, San Antonio Shoemakers (SAS) started a quiet revolution in footwear offering superb craftsmanship and extraordinary comfort. Co-founders Terry Armstrong and Lew Hayden countered a national trend of diminishing quality and cheap foreign manufacturing when they began making shoes that set a new standard in footwear. Today, the company still makes hand-crafted shoes in Texas to exacting standards with the very best materials available, making its own shoe forms so that it can offer an unparalleled fit—73 sizes for women and 89 for men—and astonishing comfort. Carried in 200+ SAS stores and in retailers in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Australia, Korea, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and Israel—the San Antonio Shoemakers brand is a humble American success story, and continues to be a family-owned enterprise driven by an obsession with fit and quality. Inspiring an ardent customer-base for decades, San Antonio Shoemakers continues to take extra steps, so customers can too. SAS. Keep Moving.
