With the launch of Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, the inner, devoted, 12-year-old Potterhead in you might have been brought back to life. Perhaps that’s why Vans has launched its Harry Potter collection – to pay tribute to (and cash in on) the love for this wildly popular, iconic series about magic.

What products are for sale?

When you think about the Harry Potter series, arguably, one of the first things that will come to mind are the four Houses: Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff and Slytherin. Each House embodies different cultures and represents different values, and students of Hogwarts are sorted into one of the four Houses. If you’re a Harry Potter fan, chances are you would’ve taken a Sorting Hat quiz before, too!

On that end, Vans is here to endorse you. Rep that House pride by snagging a pair of limited-edition shoes, each in different styles and inspired by the colours and motifs of each House.

Shoes aren’t the only thing on sale, either. You can rep your House through shirts, socks, bags, and even caps!

Of course, if you’re not too keen on that, there are other design options on sale as well. Vans has dropped other designs based on important motifs in the series. Take a look at these shoes, inspired by the Golden Snitch in Quidditch, for instance:

Last but not least, here are shoes with designs inspired by the Marauder’s Map, with the iconic quote “Mischief Managed” on the shoes’ heels:
