If the flurry of back-to-school shopping reminds you of those years you held out hope that an owl would show up with your Hogwarts acceptance letter, consider yourself in luck. Right now, Zappos has a sale on a lot of Vans x Harry Potter gear — including a snazzy Gryffindor hat and backpack, a Slytherin backpack (because for every lion there is a snake among us), and a pack of Hogwarts house–themed socks that look straight out of Madam Malkin’s. Below are some of our favorite things from the sale, and if you like any of them, don’t dillydally — the Vans x Harry Potter collaboration has been known to vanish quicker than Harry under his invisibility cloak.
