Calling all Wizards and Witches (& Elves, Merpeople, Goblins & the Like - Muggles Need Not Apply): The Vans X Harry Potter collection is coming "very soon" & I just might die of excitement!
OK fellow Harry Potter heads, this is not a drill! Journeys has announced that the Vans X Harry Potter collection is coming "very soon". If you have no idea what I'm talking about, you're probably a muggle.
Back in late April, Vans announced a collaboration with Warner Bros. Consumer Products on a special line of Harry Potter inspired shoes, clothes and accessories.
The collection, Vans X Harry Potter, is beautifully designed to represent each of the four houses of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft & Wizardry. And let me tell you, both as a shoe head and a Harry Potter fan, this collection looks incredible!
The centerpieces of this collection will be the four lines of shoes, each representing its own Hogwarts house.
Sk8-Hi for Gryffindor
Era for Slytherin
Authentic for Ravenclaw
Classic Slip-On for Hufflepuff
Are you seeing the level of detail on these shoes? The (Authentic) Slytherin shoe looks like the scales of a snake! The classic Hufflepuff badger proudly sits on the vamp of the (Classic Slip-On) shoe like the classy, golden hero he is. Seriously, the thought that went into these pieces is incredible and the designers are obviously geniuses!
Now, just a day or so ago, Journey began tweeting magical tweets hinting at the Vans X Harry Potter collection. When a fan asked if they were being released today, Journeys responded "we wish ! not today but very soon". That means that a release could happen any day now and we all have to be prepared with our money and our wands (don't judge).
