This isn’t heritage for nostalgia’s sake. There’s a trusted and reliable way to make hard service footwear. GH Bass has perfected the technique over decades of development and innovation, adapting to meet modern challenges, proving that A True Original Is Always In Demand.
The history of G.H. Bass & Co. dates back to Maine in 1876 and George Henry Bass- a man on a simple mission to make the very best shoe. In 1936, G.H. Bass & Co. put a stylish spin on a Norwegian farm shoe designed for “loafing in the field,” and playfully dubbed them Weejuns – introducing the world’s first penny loafer. From strolling across college campuses to doing the moonwalk, Weejuns have been found on industrious feet ever since.
