We probably all know G.H. Bass & Co. for their heritage Weejun loafer. It was G.H. Bass & Co. that actually kick-started the whole penny loafer movement and over time the brand has modernised and developed the style to maintain and build its global appeal.
The penny, which was aptly named because students in the US kept pennies in the saddle slot to make payphone calls, has certainly been stamped with approval since its birth in the 1930s. However, G.H. Bass & Co. now shifts focus onto a product that is certain to take this summer by storm. This is the Wilton Driver which modernises a classic boat shoe aesthetic, making it a vital statement piece for the holiday season. Made with expert craftsmanship and carrying an effortless style, the Wilton driver range uses the same technology that goes into a modern sports sneaker giving advanced flexibility and comfort.
Available in a versatile range of colour-ways and in canvas, cotton and nubuck leather, the Wilton Driver not only delivers a piece of footwear that you literally cannot feel on your feet, but also a level of sophistication that sets the tone to look good from day-to-night no problem.
Our pull out from the collection is the off-white nubuck Driver. The shoe features 4-eye lace-up design, hand sewn in natural waxed thread with antique brass eyelets, memory foam sock with gold foil screen print branding and off-white soft compound rubber sole.
