First teased last month, official imagery of Vans and Harry Potter‘s collaborative sneaker line-up has finally surfaced. Though the apparel and accessories remain under wraps, this first look at the shoes reveals a quartet silhouettes exclusive to each of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry’s houses.

Colors and details from all four houses — Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff and Slytherin — are realized across different Vans silhouettes, reflecting the distinctive nature of each house. Gryffindor’s Sk8-Hi sports red and gold-hued stripes against a black suede upper, with a matching Jazz Stripe and muted white midsole emphasizing the house’s lion-emblazoned crest, which is patched onto the medial side of each sneaker. Elsewhere, Ravenclaw’s signature blue informs a remixed Checkerboard Authentic, complete with matching laces, crest-branded tongue tag and touches of bronze on the alternating squares.

The Hufflepuff Slip-On is one of the more understated options; an all-black upper is subverted by subtle yellow stripes at the elastic gusset, with “HUFFLEPUFF” verbiage and crest stitched across the forefoot. Finally, Slytherin’s Era receives an appropriately scaley makeover, with faux snakeskin patterns playing across a silver and dark green leather upper, even reworking the shoe’s tongue tag to showcase the house’s snake motif.

Head to Vans’ dedicated Harry Potter page to sign up for updates regarding the highly-covetable kicks, including the official release date, which hasn’t yet been revealed.

Most recently, Vans delivered a patchwork quilted Slip-On, complete with camouflage pattern.
