Bass Weejuns are perhaps the most versatile and identifiably preppy shoes around. They seem to go with just about anything – khakis, gray flannels, madras shorts or even a poplin suit. The only paring I can’t see them with is formal wear. I prefer the traditional cordovan color and don’t really care for black. The uppers will last a long time and simply need to be resoled from time to time. For those who don’t want to bother with the expense of shoe repair, duct tape will always do the trick. It’s not unheard of for the same pair of Weejuns to be worn for 20 years or more. They’re a bargain even new ($80-$90), but I recently found a pair in a thrift store – nicely broken in and in great condition – for a mere $9.00. Bass Weejuns have been around since the 1930s and were inspired by Native American Indian moccasins. They are truly shoes for the ages.
