Loafers are our go-to shoe for pretty much anything, but here’s why the GH Bass Weejuns slip-ons are the perfect addition to your wardrobe:

  • They’re not only an investment in craftsmanship but also in style
  • They’ve got durable, non-slip soles = no wipeouts crossing the streets of Braamfontein
  • They make every outfit smarter and more stylish, even if you’re in jeans and a golfer
  • The flexible rubber soles and soft cushioning inside make them super comfortable
  • The horse bit buckle will instantly elevate your look
  • They’re so versatile, they can transition from the boardroom to happy hour
  • They’re pure class

We love this look below; bright socks and a tailored suit put a fun spin on a formal outfit, one that’s sure to turn heads. Here’s one way to wear your Weejuns, but the options are endless…

Loafers have graced the feet of everyone from Paul Newman to JFK and continue to be worn by Oscar winners and straight out legends eight decades later.

Cool Fact: The name Weejun comes from ‘Norwegian’. The British used to go to Norway to fish, and noticed the locally crafted slip-ons the locals always wore. At the time these true Norwegian shoes were exclusively sourced by two London shops, and had no American maker. That was until G.H. Bass got involved and made them even better, with a little cutout for a penny (hence penny loafer). And the rest…is style history.

Some more features of the Weejuns – In case you need more convincing

  • Genuine leather upper
  • Classic Beefroll strap detailing
  • Classic moc stitching
  • Genuine leather sock
  • Genuine leather outsole

About GH Bass

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
