Vans has teased its latest collaboration – and it’s already proving to be a hit with fans of the magic world.

On Monday, the footwear brand tweeted: “Something magical coming soon” alongside a video announcing a collaboration with Harry Potter.

The details of the partnership are currently sparse, however, the Vans website revealed that the brand would be releasing a line of Harry Potter-inspired shoes, clothes, and accessories.

“Vans and Harry Potter collaborated to conjure up a magical collection of footwear, apparel, and accessories for witches, wizards, and muggles alike,” the site reads.

The announcement is emblazoned on a swirling colourful background, which features the colours and names of the four Hogwarts houses – suggesting that the line will cater to each house individually.

On social media, the collaboration has been met with joy and anticipation.

“Apparently there’s gonna be a Vans Harry Potter collection – I can’t wait!!” one person wrote.

Another said: “Public service announcement: Vans is doing a Harry Potter line and I’m going to spend all my money.”

Currently, there is no release date for the new collection.
