UNIVERSAL WORKS X G.H.BASS Larson Wedge£175.00
Our second offering from UNIVERSAL WORKS' collaboration with master shoemakers G.H. BASS is the Larson Wedge in brown suede.
The Penny Weejun is the classic preppy G.H. BASS shoe, with JAMES DEAN and CAREY GRANT both having been known to sport penny loafers.
UW have taken the silhouette forward to give it a more modern aesthetic, courtesy of a VIBRAM sole, the first ever on a BASS shoe.
GEORGE HENRY BASS' original mission statement for his brand, on inception in 1876, read: "To make the best possible shoe for the purpose in which it will be used."
One suspects he'd have been a big fan of the UW collab.
