SO ... You Think SAS® Are Just For Old People?

Honestly, that’s what I used to think. I thought of SAS® as shoes for mothers and grandmas and nurses.

When we opened our store in 1993 I was terrified that I was going to have to wear those “ugly” shoes. Thankfully, that did not happen. I found several styles that I actually liked.


Now, that does not mean that I would be caught dead in all the styles that SAS® makes, but my feet would never have a reason to complain if I did.


Over the past 16 years that we have been in business SAS® has strived not only to come out with more and more comfortable styles, they have come out with some looks that are geared towards a younger market.


If you’re hoping to be on the cover of a fashion magazine then SAS® is probably not going to be the brand you choose. IF you want your feet to feel good and still maintain a little fashion, SAS® is a brand that you should consider.


If you like dressier flats there are styles like Simplify and Metro. If you like a little heel they have Easier and Dream.  Maria is a cute Mary Jane style.

SAS® Sandals are to die for as in looks and comfort. My personal favorites are Duo for a casual look and the new Strippy for a dressier look. SAS® has a large selection of dress and casual sandals.


SAS® Walking Shoes can not be described by any other word that COMFORT. They are available in 5 colors in smooth leather, and one colors in Nubuck. My choice is the Charcoal Nubuck for a younger look. If you plan on doing anything that involves a lot of walking or even standing Freetime for Women and Time Out Men are definitely worth trying on.


We all want to look good. We all want to feel good. SAS® Shoes can give us the best of both.


Remember, if your feet hurt you hurt all over. If you’re feet are comfortable that smile on your face shows through.

Let SAS® Shoes be your Shock Absorbers

Betty Ensor Thomas.....SAS®  states in their brochure that “In an average lifetime, a person’s feet will carry them between 150,000 and 200,000 miles. That’s six to eight times around the earth. And for the entire distance, our feet will be our levers, balancers and shock absorbers. It makes good sense to keep them comfortable and healthy.”

This statement is so true, but let’s take it a little further.


Can you imagine driving down any street without shock absorbers on your car? Can you imagine how your body would feel after a long drive?


Our support system begins at the ground and works it’s way up. With every step we take it affects not only our feet, but our ankles, knees, hips and back and areas in between. Wearing comfortable shoes are part of the good care our feet (and the rest of our bodies) need and deserve.


When most of us start to have aches and pains we rarely even think that they might or could be caused by wearing the wrong type of shoes, the wrong size shoes, or even shoes that are worn out. And, until someone points it out to them, few will ever connect their shoes to pain in other parts of their body.


Now, that is not to say all our aches and pains are caused by or can be cured by wearing the right type shoe. But, it’s a good place to start.


SAS® shoes are designed with these things in mind. They make shoes specifically designed with broader bases for even support, broader and deeper toe boxes so your toes can spread out like nature intended, sturdy heel counters for support and stability, and lightweight soles with millions of air bubbles in them to cushion every single step you take.


In addition to the lightweight soles there are several styles for both men and women that have exclusive SAS® green odor resistant Tripad® cushions under the ball of the foot and the heel which are the main pressure points when you are walking or staying.


These styles also have exclusive SAS Selfset® Foot Beds that mold to the shape of the foot and create a custom footprint. These Foot Beds are removable, washable and replaceable.


We invite you to come by our store, have your feet measured and try on some SAS® shoes and discover their comfort.


We keep good shock absorbers on our cars, are not our bodies even more important. Remember, our feet take us everywhere we go. Comfortable shoes ARE part of the good care our bodies need.

Get Your Feet Measured

It’s important to have your feet measured and fitted periodically, especially by a trained professional..

The size and shape of your feet change from year to year. Over time, your feet become wider and longer and the natural padding under your heel and forefoot thins. Years of use also flatten your arches and stiffen your feet and ankles. You size can also change because of weight loss and gain. There are many other factors


Most experts agree on the following:


1. Once a year measure both feet by length and width. Both feet may not be exactly the same size. Select the shoe size that fits your largest foot.


2. When you try new shoes, wear the kind of socks or stockings that you intend to wear with them. Avoid socks and stockings that bunch up or are too tight.


3. Make sure that the widest part of your foot comfortably fits the widest part of the shoe.

Test shoes by standing on one foot at a time. Wiggle your toes and stand on your tiptoes. Shoes should bend at the same place where your foot bends.

4. Never buy a shoe thinking it needs to be stretched out or "broken in" before it is comfortable. Purchase a shoe that is comfortable right from the start.


5. Be sure that you have one-half inch of space from the end of your longest toe to the tip of the shoe.


6. Some experts state buying your shoes at the middle or end of the day to account for normal swelling.



There are many variable to getting the best possible fit. Toe length and width are only two of those variables. Always remember that measuring the feet is just the first step in finding the correct size.


When shopping for shoes always make sure to tell your salesperson what type of shoe you are looking for and what kind of problems if any you are having. At Ensor’s Comfort Shoes will will try to help you pick out the best style(s) to meet your needs.


The size and shape of your feet do change from year to year. It's important to be fitted by an expert.

About ENSOR'S COMFORT SHOES

In the 1990's the marketplace was changing. Small businesses were being pushed out of the way, and so was the full service quality shoe stores

Nashville at that time was not lacking for shoe stores. One could turn any corner and purchase a pair of shoes, IF you had a normal foot and IF you wore a normal size. However, very few stores were willing to adequately stock anything other than the "norm."


What Nashville was lacking was a shoe store that offered full service, quality products, and someone that was willing to stock a wide variety of styles, sizes and widths.


In 1993 we decided that we wanted to be that shoe store, and there was no question what brand we wanted to sell. SAS® shoes already had a reputation of quality, comfort, and durability. They had a wide variety of styles for both Men and Women, and they made those styles in a wide range of sizes and widths, and their products were all made in the U.S.A.


On November 22nd, 1993 we opened our store for business, and now as we begin our 17th year we continue to offer SAS's quality products, and our own quality service to our customers.


We offer full real old fashioned service in our store. So, we invite you to come by, sit down, get your feet measured and let us fit you in some of the most comfortable footwear you'll ever put on.


In August 2014 as we approach our 22nd year in business we will continuing the same.  Soon we will be adding a few other Brands and Products.  Our goal is to offer our customers the best of the best.



Our store hours are: Monday-Friday 10-6:00, and Saturday 10-5:00. We are closed on Sunday’s and most major holidays.
