A what? Weejun. Because Norwegian. Fancy British sportsmen used to go to Norway to fish, and noticed these locally crafted slip ons. The shoes were then seen all over European resorts, followed by Palm Beach in 1936. At the time these true Norwegian shoes were exclusively sourced by two London shops, and had no American maker. That was until G.H. Bass got involved and made them even better, with a little cutout for a penny. And the rest...is style history.
