When you're a die hard Harry Potter fan, you are always looking for new ways to show off. In the 20-ish years that we've been fans of the magical world created by JK Rowling, there has been no shortage of ways to express your fandom. There is an overabundance of apparel, toys, puzzles, calendars, home decor and more. Because there should never be a limit on how you can show your Harry Potter fandom. And as if there weren't enough ways to show your HP love, popular sneaker brand Vans has a new Harry Potter line coming.
With this new line that will include sneakers and apparel, you can wear your house with pride. Any Harry Potter fan knows the importance of belonging to a house — either Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Slytherin, or Hufflepuff. If you've taken the time to learn about your house, then you will want to have all the things to rep your house sufficiently. And the sneakers will do just that.
In a teaser photo, we can see that not only does each house have it's own shoe, each one is a different style. As any real HP fan knows, the four houses all have very distinct attributes. So you couldn't just slap different colors on the same pair of shoes. No, they need to be as different as the houses they represent. And Vans definitely did not disappoint!
Gryffindor, the house of the beloved boy wizard is represented with the Sk8-Hi, a high top version of the traditional Vans skate shoe. The sides of the shoe showcase the well known red and gold pattern under the crest of Gryffindor, with a black middle and white sole. Ravenclaw's signature royal blue and gray get the checkerboard treatment on the Authentic, complete with blue laces and the crest emblazoning the tongue. You can see the snake-like scales on the Slytherin Era shoe, with black and green embossed leather. And true to fashion, the classic Slip-On is as understated as a Hufflepuff in a basic black with the badger representation.
Right now, we don't have a release date or any info about the apparel. But if you go to the official Vans page for Harry Potter, you can sign up for updates.
