Vans Is Releasing Special Harry Potter Shoes — Inspired by the Four Hogwarts Houses

Muggles everywhere are about to get the chance to walk in Harry Potter‘s shoes — literally.

Vans announced in April that they will be adding a new collection of magic-themed kicks to their lineup, inspired by the story of the world’s most famous fictional boy wizard.

“Something magical coming soon,” the company teased, sharing only an animated graphic that reads, “Harry Potter VANS,” with the four Hogwarts house colors alternating in the background, and a link to a new page on their site.

And on Monday, the brand finally released a first look at the new styles.

The sneakers are inspired by each house from the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and come in a variety of different styles from slip-ons to high-tops. While four styles are shown in the newly-released photo, additional sneakers will be released in addition to a selection of men’s and women’s apparel and accessories, date still to be announced.

Upon visiting Vans’ website, would-be Galleon spenders are invited to enter their email addresses for updates about the forthcoming “magical collection of footwear, apparel, and accessories for witches, wizards, and Muggles alike.”

The page’s background features the colors and mascots for each of the Hogwarts houses — for Gryffindor, a lion; Ravenclaw, an eagle; Hufflepuff, a badger; and Slytherin, a snake — alongside the names.

Hovering your mouse over the graphics activates a pretty magical effect, too — almost like running your fingers over the surface of the Black Lake.

Harry Potter fans have expressed their joy over the upcoming release, flocking to social media with comments like, “If i don’t get a pair of Van’s x Harry Potter, I don’t know what I’m going to with myself.”

“Harry Potter Vans just teased. Take all my moNEY NOW,” another eager future patron wrote.

And a third said what just about every fan might be really thinking deep down: “That Vans x Harry Potter collection is going to be the death of my bank account.”
