I love Bass shoes. I bought these classic tassel loafers a few months ago and I have to say, for the price, you are getting top notch craftsmanship. Bass has been providing classic quality leather footwear since 1876 (Michael Jackson wore the famous loafer) and they clearly know what they are doing. This high-heel oxford is just as relevant now as it was back in the day.
They remind me of the iconic oxford flats that irresistible Audrey Horne wore in Twin Peaks. Of course, Blair Waldorf wears two-tone oxfords too (here and here). Very preppy indeed.
