We started as a family-owned business, and we intend to keep it that way. Trust, Experience, Convenience and Confidence are the four pillars that this company was founded on over 30 years ago in Greensboro, North Carolina in 1980 and nothing has changed.
With more than three decades worth of experience, we think it’s “Saf” to say that we have a pretty good idea of what we’re doing, and we’d like to share our knowledge with you.
ASTM- American Society for Testing and Materials. In short, ASTM is one of the largest voluntary standards developing organizations in the world. Meaning they create Standards, which are documents that give manufacturers information about procedures and regulations in their specific industry. They provide guidance for individuals, companies and other institutions around the world.

You have to get a shoe long enough to accommodate the back and forth toe movement in the shoes. The proper fit happens when the widest point of your foot (the ball) is located exactly in the widest part of the shoe. When that happens, the arch of your foot fits precisely with the arch of the shoe, giving you maximum support.
