  • As a shoe store, we're no strangers to the words “They’re soooo cute!”  The phrase has echoed so often through our downtown Victoria BC location, it's practically a permanent store fixture.

    But at Baggins, there's a special kind of reaction reserved for our Kids Section.

    Whether it’s a squealing customer catching their first sight of our children’s collection, or a Converse Veteran watching wistfully as a toddler tromps by in their first pair of sneakers, one thing has become clear: no one is immune to the charms of the baby Converse or Vans shoe.

    Here are some of our favourite Converse and Vans for kids! (Warning, sudden heart swells and high pitched awwwww's may accompany this blog post.) Continue reading

  • As residents of the southern tip of Vancouver Island, it’s hard not to feel a swell of pride every time someone asks “Where are you from?”

    To say the west coast is beautiful is an understatement. Mysterious mists, crashing waves, and wildlife we can often see from our windows are just a few of the things that make life in the Pacific Northwest surreal.  Yes, the rain has tendency to wear down our well-being (and our basements) by mid-February, and maybe we actually don’t know how to drive in the snow…but watch one coral-hued sunset disappear behind the coastal mountains and you’ll know why you can never leave.

    With May flowers comes wedding season, and with wedding season usually comes a mad scramble to find outfits for bridesmaids and groomsmen. Between the fittings, colour palettes and the fact that half your squad lives out of town, even the most patient bride or groom may start to consider an elopement.

    Fortunately the rigid rules of what a wedding party can or can’t wear are being relaxed. Whether it’s mismatched dresses, or neon suspenders, there are lots of colourful, creative ways to add a signature touch to your party – and that includes the feet! Continue reading

    The plain white canvas of a Converse shoe has a long history of inspiring artistic talents.  Whether it’s coloured markers, glitter or buttons, the brand’s wearers have found no shortage of ways to customize their sneakers over the decades.

    In 2013, Baggins decided to take things one step further. Importing a modified t-shirt printer from Los Angeles, the crew set up their custom print shop in downtown Victoria.  Today customers can submit their unique designs to be printed on a pair of Converse Hi-Tops, Low-Tops or Vans Slip-Ons.

  • The Custom Print Shop at Baggins has been busier than ever as more and more people of all ages race to get their best pictures, drawings, and fan fare immortalized on their favourite pairs of Converse and Vans footwear.

    While we love seeing what everyone comes up with, we have some of our own ideas up our sleeves, such as our collaborations with our favourite local artists. Through these collaborations, we have created a few series of unique shoes that we know our customers will fall in love with just like we have.

    One such collaboration, The Art of Francis Dick, showcases the local aboriginal artist’s paintings on both Vans Slip-ons and Converse All-Stars. Each shoe is made to order with love by a member of our trusty staff using a patented process at our print shop. Keep reading to learn more about the woman behind the artwork, as well as what prints we have available! Continue reading
