G.H.Bass Outdoors: Indian Slippers
I haven't posted a G. H. Bass advertisement in a while. I didn't want to post the usual weejun post. I decided to post this Moccasin advertisement from the mid 1930s. The maker of the weejun was heavily involved in the outdoor footwear department many decades ago. G. H Bass should bring this model back. The Indian slipper reminds me of the L.L. Bean camp moccasin, which is a preppy stable and New England classic. My assumption is that the Indian Slipper influenced the camp moccasin. The slippers are very low profile with a thin sole. According to the advertisements the slipper has the comfort of bedroom slippers. Yet, it has the durability to hold up against outdoor activities like camping and canoeing. Absolutely love this authentic design because it's a silhouette you probably see from Maine brand like Quoddy.
