These are made by G.H. Bass and Company, which has been making quality, leather shoes since the late 1880s. Their reputation was made on preppy (after all, they are from Maine) and classic styles which left them out of the trendy market for quite awhile until they began reviving their archival styles and putting a new spin on their line in the mid-90s.
These shoes are brand new. They have a wonderfully cushioned insole with arch support and they have a retro, brick-red cushion-y “rubber” outer sole and stitching where the leather and outer sole meet. The perforation detail and zig-zag edges make a real statement now in red and give them a feminine look but don’t sweeten the bold buckle and straightforward lines of the shoe itself.
Whether it’s for a night of rockabilly, a tight skirt or pedal pushers; plaid skirts and jackets; or tights and a mini-dress or jeans, you’re going to love stepping out in these fun and comfortable brogues.
