Attention Potterheads: Vans is launching a Harry Potter collection
In good spell
First teased on Instagram last month, Vans has finally released the official images from its spellbinding sneaker collaboration with Harry Potter, and the collection will be released real soon. Available in four different colourway and materials featuring the brand's classic designs, each shoe was made to rep the four Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry's houses.
The Gryffindor Sk8-Hi comes with red and gold stripes against a black suede upper, complete with a white midsole and the house's lion crest emblazoned on both sides of the shoes. Instead of black-and-white hues, Ravenclaw's Authentic sneaker is introduced in a blue checkerboard print, complete with matching laces and a crest-branded tongue. The most understated option of the lot goes to Hufflepuff—the all-black Slip-On had the verbiage and crest stitched on the upper sole, but take a closer look and you'll notice the subtle striped details on the elastic gusset. Lastly, the Slytherin Era shoe is given a texture update with a green and black faux snakeskin upper. Which House are you in?
