Harry Potter and the Order of the Phootwear

Classic skate shoe company Vans has a collaboration that will make fans say "Accio, sneakers!"

We're not normally in the business of telling you all about new sneakers. But it's not every day that we get to talk about Harry Potter shoes. Whoa, come again?

You heard us correctly. California skate shoe company Vans has long been known for their fun collaborations with different artists and pop culture icons, so we suppose that this was only a matter of time. But still. Harry Potter shoes? Just in time for Quidditch season?

You won't catch us being blasé about that!

When is the big reveal?

Of course, any time something like this is coming, it always begins with a teaser. Right now, you can go to this site to sign up for an alert as to when the Harry Potter shoes will be officially announced. (You can also play with some nifty effects as you swish your cursors across four boxes representing the four houses of Hogwarts.)

But it wouldn't be the internet if there weren't already a leak or two online.

Behold!

Those look pretty awesome! Until the official announcement of the complete collection — which will likely include way more shoes, plus shirts and the like — it is certainly enough to get us excited.

What do you think of the collaboration? Do you have a house that is your favourite? Any Hufflepuff fans in the crowd?

Let us know below!
