New Vans Harry Potter Collection Features Some Branding, Decoration Wizardry
We're about to "Accio" these new shoes into our closets. For non-Potterheads, that means the new Vans Harry Potter collection is the latest collaboration sneaker enthusiasts are clamoring to get their hands on. And we're happy to report it's got some great branding and decoration on display.
The streetwear company began teasing the collection last month, and now, we finally have some visuals. For now, the apparel and accessories are still a mystery, but we have a first look at the shoes.
For starters, the collection features a different shoe for every house at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. So, there's no time like the present to pay a visit to the Sorting Hat.

Vans went all out on the design elements, too. Gryffindor's Sk8-Hi sneakers feature red and gold stripes on black suede, with a matching stripe and muted white midsole. The house's lion crest is on the side of the sneaker. Ravenclaw got a Checkerboard Authentic shoe in the signature blue with matching laces, and a crest-branded tongue tag. Meanwhile, Hufflepuff got a slip-on with an all-black body and yellow stripes. And, finally, Slytherin's Era shoes take on a scaly persona with a dark green leather upper and a snake motif.
We're not sure when the Vans Harry Potter collection will drop, but we're sure they will go the way of Vans' other sneaker collections and be a huge hit.
