A four-pack of adult-sized sneakers will release in December while embodying a number of elements from the wizarding universe. For those who want to rep their house, a Club C 85 comes with interchangeable laces and patches for Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff, and Ravenclaw. The upper is rendered in blue and grey canvas with a Hogwarts crest on the mustache. On the inner part of the tongue, the quote, “It’s not Hogwarts without you, Hagrid” is embroidered.

Two versions of the Classic Leather also feature in the collection. A variant featuring a Hexalite midsole takes after the Patronus spell with a silvery blue taking over the entire silhouette. Two different Patronus animals, the stag and doe, appear on the tongue, while the insole also features a more realistic rendition of the spell. “Expecto Patronum” is then embroidered across the left and right mustache, and the following instructions appear on the inner tongue: “Not just any memory, a very happy memory, a very powerful memory.”
The baseline Classic Leather in black nods to the Dark Arts and hosts the Deathly Hallows symbol on the tongue. Individually, the Invisibility Cloak makes its appearance on the inner-tongue, the Resurrection Stone forms the shape of the metal lace dubrae, and the Edler Wand inspires wood grain lace tips. Reebok is also teasing additional hidden details to be found throughout the sneaker and, as is also the case with the Club C, has largely withheld imagery for the sneaker.
Rounding out the assortment is an Instapump Fury 95 informed by Voldemort through its black and silver color scheme. Snakeskin-like panels are scattered throughout, and the Dark Mark sits atop midfoot just below the pump. The collection will also be accompanied by a Club C in toddler, preschool, and grade school sizing in a addition to a range of collegiate-style apparel.
Look for the full Harry Potter x Reebok capsule to arrive Dec. 1 through Reebok’s website and Amazon. Pricing for the adult sneakers ranges from $100 for the “Dark Arts” Classic Leather to $250 for the Instapump Fury.
