G.H. Bass & Co

Founded 1876 in USA
Based in Maine

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.
G.H. Bass nowadays produce a wide range of footwear but they still have a high quality "Made in USA" line with their classic loafers, lace ups and boots.
