Slytherin to These Harry Potter-Themed Vans That Are Siriusly Awesome

By Shabana Arif on at

Vans announced its Harry Potter collaboration last month, and this week it's given us a sneak peek at the shoes ahead of their release - which still don't have a release date.

Courtesy of the Independent, the four colourways are themed around the four Hogwarts houses, with further accessories and apparel to be added to the line at a later date.

"Vans and Harry Potter collaborated to conjure up a magical collection of footwear, apparel, and accessories for witches, wizards, and Muggles alike," reads the website, where you can sign up for notifications and updates on the collection.

The Sk8-Hi is representing Gryffindor with the house crest emblazoned on red and gold striped, set against black suede.

Hufflepuff's Checkerboard blue and white shoe is pretty snazzy, but Ravenclaw and Slytherin fans might be a tad disappointed with their house shoes; Ravenclaw gets a black slip-on sporting the house crest, while Slytherin's is a green and black shoe, and while the colours aren't my cup of tea, the snakeskin effect is a nice touch.

"Whether goofy foot or regular stance, Gryffindor or Slytherin, the Vans x Harry Potter footwear and apparel collection will appeal to all enthusiasts of Vans and the Wizarding World," reads the press release.

If you can't wait that long for your next Harry Potter purchase, you can check out Lego's newest sets inspired by the films, and this Harry Potter Wand that lets you control your smart home so you can feel like less of a useless muggle.
