Canter Shoes
Small Business has Extensive Inventory

By Kelly Bledsoe

Mark Canter is the owner of a small shoe business right here in Denton, Canter Shoes. Although the store footprint is small Mark offers an extensive shoe line including Clarks, Carolina, Durango, Georgia Boot, Propet, Rocky, Red Wing Shoes, Red Wing Irish Setter (Work lines and Hunting line), Worx by Red Wing shoes, McRae Footwear and the latest addition SAS (San Antonio Shoemakers).

Mark is excited to add SAS to his inventory. The story of SAS begins with its founders, Terry Armstrong and Lew Hayden. The two first met in Pittsfield, Maine, but their passion for making quality footwear led them to San Antonio, Texas. They had a vision of how genuine leather shoes should be made. With determination, and the support of their own families they opened their first factory. They started small but their reputation grew. SAS became a name people could trust for comfortable, quality footwear.
Today the SAS line features everything from walking and athletic shoes, to pumps, flats, sandals and even a new boot for women. They are most noted for their casual shoe, named the Move On, featuring S-Motion Technology. S-Motion Technology aids the three step walking motion, from initial heel strike, through the mid-step and to the final toe push off. It is Medicare approved and the shoes come in black, brown, chocolate and camel.

The priorities at SAS have always been the comfort and quality of their shoes and they remain a family-owned company who continue to make the highest quality shoes. A perfect fit for Mark and Canter Shoes whose priority has always been customer comfort and satisfaction.

Canter Shoes also has an extensive inventory of welding boots including brands such as Carolina, Micheline Safety Footwear, Thorogood, and Worx by Red Wing. Canter Shoes offers the best pricing around and top notch customer service. Mark says he enjoys fitting the workers from local businesses such as Loflin Fabrication, and appreciates the support all the other local businesses as well.

Canter Shoes is located at 9 West Salisbury Street Denton NC 27230. They are open Tuesday -Friday from 10am-6pm and Saturday from 10am-5pm. So stop in and check out the selection at Canter Shoes. If Mark doesn’t have want you want on the showroom floor he will gladly order it for you. You can reach Canter Shoes at 336-425-8918.
