G.H.BASS &CO. WEEJUNS 85th ANNIVERSARY

Celebrating 85 years of a style icon.

The legend of the penny loafer was born when ivy league students tucked a coin for the payphone in the front slot of their Weejuns.

Every subculture builds on what's gone before.

Now it's your turn.

HISTORY OF WEEJUNS

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.
