UPDATED: Something Wicked This Way Comes: Vans Teases New “Harry Potter” Merchandise

UPDATE (May 13):

The first image of the highly anticipated Harry Potter Vans collection has been revealed!



According to Footwear News, fans will be able to purchase a range of shoe styles featuring different Potter Houses, with even more styles in the works.

Shoppers will be able to choose among a Sk8-Hi for Gryffindor, an Era for Slytherin, [an] Authentic for Ravenclaw and the Classic Slip-On for Hufflepuff.

There is still no release date or pricing information available as of yet, so make sure to check back in with MuggleNet for any further updates.

Vans has been making a habit over the past few years of sending fandoms into a frenzy with shoes based on Marvel superheroes, popular series such as Adventure Time, and most recently, Ziggy Stardust himself, David Bowie. Now, it’s our turn.

Vans set Harry Potter fans reeling today with an announcement on Twitter and Instagram that a new Potter line is pending. “Something magical coming soon,” the posts teased.



Limited information is available at this point, but the collection will reportedly feature not only footwear but also apparel and accessories for both women and men.

Vans also has a page of its website ready and waiting for the new products. Vans.com/HarryPotter features spiral designs in the colors of the four Hogwarts Houses, along with a message from the company.

Vans and ‘Harry Potter’ collaborated to conjure up a magical collection of footwear, apparel, and accessories for witches, wizards, and Muggles alike.

From Scrabble: World of Harry Potter from USAopoly to the new Marauder’s Map notebook from Merchoid, the Harry Potter merchandise just keeps on coming of late! Be sure to keep checking back; we’ll let you know as soon as more information on the Vans line is released. Until then, what sort of designs are you hoping to see? Let us know in the comments!
