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 in which it will be used. A hard-won reputation for quality, comfort, and durability is exactly what has kept Bass in business for almost a century and a half. This isn’t heritage for Nostalgia’s sake. There’s a trusted and reliable way to make hard service footwear. GH Bass has perfected the technique over decades of development and innovation, adapting to meet modern challenges, proving that a true original is always in demand.
