Established in 1876 by George Henry Bass of Wilton, Maine, G.H. Bass & Co. began with a man on a simple mission:
"to make the best possible shoe for the purpose for which it was intended."
A hard-won reputation for quality, comfort and durability is exactly what has kept Bass in business for almost a century and a half. Personifying the American spirit, Bass shoes have been worn for generations, shaping them into an iconic symbol of discovery, perseverance and self-expression. This isn’t heritage for nostalgia's sake. There's a trusted and reliable way to craft "hard service" footwear.
G.H. Bass has perfected the technique through decades of development and innovation, adopted to meet modern challenges, and proved that. A true original is always in demand.
