Established in 1876 in Maine, USA. The brand offers premium and intentional footwear, apparel, and accessories for men, women, kids and home. Embodying a rich legacy of purpose-built products, G.H.BASS remains a modern American icon.Over its nearly 150-year legacy, G.H.BASS has introduced numerous original footwear icons to generations of outdoor sportsmen, explorers, and cultural tastemakers. Notably, in 1936, BASS 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. Today, more than ever, the spirit of BASS lives on. We believe that looking forward is the best way to honor our heritage. We are on an unceasing quest for improvement through craft and creativity. We continue to reimagine authentic ways to combine the classics with the contemporary, keeping BASS where it belongs: at the forefront of culture.
