“Shoes, purses and a side of history”
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....”
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!
