The brand G.H. Bass was born in 1876 in the Main and took root during the first half in 900' creating durable and comfortable shoes for outdoor workers and high-level atlets. One of those shoes was the Bass Weejun, also known as "Penny Loafer", that convinced college students with the slit on the upper to put a penny. Years later, Michael Jackson paired it with the white sock in the Thriller video, an iconic style of pop culture that gave the shoe a timeless aura.
