In 1936 George Henry Bass introduced the world’s first penny loafer under the name G.H.Bass & Co. He named them BASS Weejuns after a Norwegian slipper-type moccasin used for “loafing in the field.” 1984 Michael Jackson wore black Weejuns in his Thriller music video and many influential people have worn them throughout history. The original womens loafer is hand stitched and crafted on a classic leather outsole. A chic and super comfortable shoe for everyday use.
