Vans has confirmed its partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products for the release of the Vans X Harry Potter collaboration, bringing fans a collection from the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The exclusive colourways would be spread across various sneakers from the archives, including a Sk8-Hi for Gryffindor, an Era for Slytherin, Authentic for Ravenclaw and the Classic Slip-On for Hufflepuff. The collection would be rounded off with a collection of men’s and women’s apparel and accessories. The Vans X Harry Potter collection is set to drop in June 2019, so stay tuned for official images once announced.
“Whether goofy foot or regular stance, Gryffindor or Slytherin, the footwear and apparel collection will appeal to all enthusiasts of Vans and the Wizarding World,” the brand has said in a statement.
8 years after the final film was released, it seems the magic is very much still alive.
