Vans and Harry Potter work in collaboration on a collection of sneakers that are themed around the popular novel and films. The signature Sk8-Hi and Era serve as the foundational design to the themes, representing the four different Hogwarts houses. The Sk8-Hi references Gryffindor themes and the Era recalls Slytherin -- the Sk8-Hi features a black base with hits of gold and red across with a white midsole.
To push the theme further beyond the colors is the lion crest informed through patchwork on the medial side. The Slytherin Era show features a snake crest and snake-like scaley textures on the uppers with a color palette of black and green with leather materials. Additionally, there is also an Sk8-Hi sneaker in an iridescent colorway and lightning bolts and an Era that is adorned in clippings drawn from the fictional Daily Prophet newspaper.
