Ad Campaign – Bass Ski Boots, 1948

Bass is best known for their loafer - the Weejun, but they also made other casual boots including ski boots.   These are typical ski boots of that time, and from all I can tell from looking in vintage catalogs and online searches, ski boots pretty much remained the same from the 1930s through the 1950s.  They were sturdy and very heavy.

I recently found this vintage pair.  They are well worn, but really snazzy.  And if you don’t ski they could be used for a door stop or as a leathal weapon.  They are that heavy.

    I love these old Bass ski book posters. Is it possible to purchase them?
