“Shoes, purses and a side of history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

We've been coming here for years and love looking at the memorabilia, including the vintage cars. The shoes and bags are hand-made and of excellent quality. Take a tour to gain an appreciation of how much work and love go into each item they make!

“But not for the shoes....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

The SAS Shoe Factory offers much more than simply shoes. Yes, their shoes are hand-made, durable and comfortable (but they are also VERY ugly). But I guess that's on the "foot" of the beholder.

What you can find at SAS Shoe Factory besides shoes is: History, Hospitality, and Americana.
Part of the store contains a 100+ year old original warehouse and an American automobile museum/collection. Staff greats you with treats and a truly happy smile. And (drum-roll!), you can get 5 cent corn pop and 10 c sodas (yes, c = cents!). Don't miss also their ice cream parlor at the back!
