    The Harry Potter films might have wrapped eight years ago (yes, it really has been that long), but our obsession with the magical world is stronger than ever. Daniel Radcliffe recently spoke about the movies getting a reboot in the not so distant future, and we’re forever being spoilt with all things HP – from magical pop-up bars to beautiful and delicate themed jewellery.

    So many Potterheads were thrilled to find out that something was on its way to fill that Harry Potter footwear-shaped void in our lives.

    Vans teased a magical collaboration back in April, and we finally have the official pictures of the shoes. A word of warning: you’ll love and want them all.

    Each Hogwarts house has been transformed into footwear form. The Gryffindor-inspired Sk8-Hi has red and gold stripes against black suede with an embroidered lion crest on the side.

    Slytherin is a green and black Era trainer with a snake of the tongue, while Ravenclaw is an Authentic checkerboard in blue and white.

    Finally, Hufflepuff is a sensible black Classic Slip-On in with the yellow crest stitched onto the front.

    ‘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,’ the brand has said in a statement.

    And rumour has it there will be even more styles as part of the collection but there’s no official launch date just yet – so we’ll keep you posted as soon as we get any more info.
