Just because something's a classic doesn't make it a bore — something that G.H. Bass & Co. proves handily with the nine shoes ahead.
The heritage brand better known as Bass has been churning out first-day-of-school styles like the Weejun penny loafer since...well, since pennies were worth saving. But, far from resting on its preppy laurels, the brand just keeps making its kicks cuter and more modern.
Click on for our nine favorite styles. From classic, lace-up oxfords — now in gleaming gold — to a rainbow of candy-colored, patent Weejuns, and chic, cobalt suede driving mocs, these kicks give new meaning to the phrase "preppy polish."
