The Most Durable and Sturdy Shoes

Jan 04, 23

A small yet significant way to improve your quality of life starts with your footwear. Sturdy, durable shoes that are comfortable and supportive are total game-changers. No more aches, no more pain—just practical kicks with a perfect fit. 

We know it’s super frustrating when your shoes fall apart, especially when it feels like you just bought them. That’s why we focus on quality materials. 

One pair of our shoes may go through up to a hundred different steps in the manufacturing process—from leather selection, die-making, cutting, lasting, and more. It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that 80 different skilled pairs of hands are carefully constructing and inspecting each shoe to ensure the SAS shoes you choose are the best-made pair of footwear in your closet. That’s what we like to call durable shoes.

Start your search with supportive, sturdy shoe styles from SAS and find out what your feet have been missing. 


What to Look for When Shopping for Durable Shoes

As we mentioned, quality is key, but it’s important to know where to look when trying to figure out the sturdiness and durability of your shoes. Strong soles and premium leather are the tip of the iceberg. Here’s a quick spotlight on what sets SAS apart: the latest and greatest shoe tech. Comfort? Check. Support? Check. Sturdiness? Check. Durability? Check!


Look for our EZ Lace™ System to ensure your foot is stable and secure, the X-Tra Grip Sole for increased stability, our TRIPAD® Cushions for comfort and support, and our Waterguard™ Leather for durability against the elements. Find those features and more in the SAS shoe store and find your perfect pair.
