In the year ,1936, G. H. Bass of Wilton, Maine, launched a new design of Loafers, called ‘Weejuns “to show its Norwegian background. Hereafter, this design of shoes became very much in trend, among US prep school students. The design of Weejuns, was as such, that, these school students started keeping pennies, under the saddle slot of their loafer shoes. From then on, these loafers were also known as “Penny Loafers “.
