With Christmas 2016 right around the corner, the Baggins team of busy elves has been hard at work keeping the store shelves fully stocked at our Downtown Victoria location. In the warehouse, our staff are pumping out kicks for mail orders around the clock. We’ve even received so many custom graphics requests that our print shop feels like it’s been going non-stop.
Never mind the weather on the Wet Coast, as long as you and your pair of weatherized shoes are together.
If your winter shoe collection could use a little sprucing up this season, the team here at Baggins has got you covered with our fall and winter lines of Vans and Converse. There are plenty of ways to continue to rock Vans and Converse when the weather gets lousy out there.

For a lot of people, spring break symbolizes a week off work and school—a time for much-needed rest, relaxation, and perhaps some housecleaning paired with a cold beverage or two.
But for Madilyn, the next staffer featured in the Baggins Blog Meet the Staff Series, spring break in 2016 meant orientation time as she spent her days breaking in her new role as Retail Manager at Baggins.

Baby, it’s cold outside—but when you’re wearing a Herschel’s beanie (some may call them toques), you’ll be nice and toasty.
This fall, Baggins is stoked to announce it has in stock an assortment of Herschel fall fashion beanies. Yep, that’s right. The brand you know and love for its reliable backpacks, like the Heritage, Pop Quiz , and Settlement lines, also make seasonal headwear to match:

Next up in the Meet the Baggins Staff series is Tara, our shop’s Director of Operations. Tara has been at Baggins for just over three years, so is it any wonder how she came to own more than 400 pairs of shoes?
Nope, didn’t think so. (It’s OK, Tara. No one’s asking questions!)

So many things hailing from the seventies were built to last. Cars, boats, radios, record players, televisions, T-shirts and telephones are all examples of quality-built items that, if you took care of them well in the seventies, continued to love you back well into the nineties.
The same is true of the Converse 1970s line. Although the world’s most recognizable shoe brand had been around for decades, in the 1970s Converse decided to make a few tweaks to its sneakers. The 1970s Converse line included features like thicker soles and heavier canvas uppers. This higher quality meant that if you bought a pair of converse during this time period, you were likely still rocking them 10 or 15 years later—scuffs and frayed laces be damned!
