In 1936, G.H. Bass & Co. was commissioned to make the “NorWeejun,” marking a milestone year in the shoe industry. Bass introduced the very first slip-on casual – Weejuns – and established a style trend that revolutionized the men’s and women’s footwear business. Bass Weejuns have long made a smooth transition from work to play. All while remaining a simple, classic, and understated shoe with practical, long-term fashion value.
