Hey guys, we're back with another edition of our Meet the Staff highlights - it's about time you meet Jackson! He's one of our latest and greatest additions to our Baggins World. He started with us back in the spookiest season of recent history, October 2020. He's been a huge asset to us ever since, and our customers love his helpful tips on style and shoe-care. Jackson hails from Prince George, BC, and moved to Victoria to study his buns off for a degree in History at UVIC. He's done a little bit of traveling, living in Spain for 3 months, then traveling across Europe, visiting Paris, Amsterdam, Lisbon, Venice... and that's not even the end of the list! We're so glad to have him and honoured to introduce you to the man, the myth, the legend.

 

Learn more about Jackson in this mini Q&A:

 

(BB) Baggins Blog: Why don't you introduce yourself?

Suh dude!

BB: What are your current top 3 product picks?

The Vans Sk8 Low, the classic Dr Martens 1460 boots, and the Vans Sk8-Hi MTE 2.0 DX for those rainy Victoria winters.

BB: What’s the craziest/best/most different thing you’ve done in a pair of Converse?

I would say building a secret indoor skate park in an abandoned building!

BB: What do you do during your free time?

My favourite hobbies are sleeping, napping, and lying in bed. But if I’m not doing that I’m probably playing PC games, going for walks, or hanging out with my pet fish.

 

DR. MARTENS CAIRO BLACK MOHAWK

 

BB: What do you love most about Victoria?

The weather (when it’s not raining) and the aesthetic. Victoria is such a pretty little city!

BB: What are your current favorite tunes?

I love me some Porter Robinson, IU, and My Chemical Romance (I never got over my emo phase)

BB: What do you love most about working for Baggins?

Definitely my coworkers and the company culture!!

BB: If you had to choose one shoe for the rest of your life, which style/brand would it be?

I’d have to go with Old Skools.

Don’t take yourself too seriously.
