In excellent news for everyone who plans on wearing out their kicks playing the new Harry Potter mobile game, Vans has released the first images of its collaboration with the wizarding franchise.
Vans, purveyors of classic footwear silhouettes, are preparing to launch a range of shoes representing the Hogwarts houses of Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Slytherin, and Hufflepuff.
Each house will have its own model type adorned with appropriate colours and materials. A preview image shows those houses will cop Sk8-His, Authentics, Eras, and Classic Slip-Ons, respectively.
Following the logic of the Potter universe, this means Gryffindor kids push longboards, Ravenclaw students just want something practical, Slytherin folks are edgelords, and Hufflepuff adherents would probably be better off with a comfortable pair of slippers.
That’s not all, though. Other pics circulating online show other models sporting the Marauder’s Map, prints of The Daily Prophet newspaper, shiny green Dementor-themed Sk8-His, and the Golden Snitch in the form of some Old Skools.
Also in the pipeline: some apparel, which will aid everyone in your life who doesn’t already know you froth Potter.
Vans has set no clear date for when the collection will drop worldwide, but if you’re the kind of person who must know, you can sign up for deets right here.
