They say they don’t make ‘em like that anymore, but Bass most certainly does. Still bench crafted and hand stitched, iconic Weejuns -- the original penny loader, designed in 1936 -- are more in demand than ever from casual and fashion-forward crowds alike. Founded in Maine in 1876, the brand is the brainchild of George Henry Bass, a man whose mission was simply to “make the very best shoe”. Imbuing classic construction with a contemporary creativity, GH Bass & Co. continues to find new ways to marry the timeless with today—and stand as proof positive that a true original is always in demand. Weejuns aside, GH Bass also produces stylish oxfords, brogues, saddle shoes, and more.
