You could say it’s been a pretty big week for all things Harry Potter. It was his/J.K. Rowling‘s birthday on Saturday which coincided with the premiere of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child play in London and the release of the book/screenplay of the same name. It was a day so momentous, Snapchat even had to commemorate it with a limited-time Harry Potter filter. Yes, a Snapchat filter is what makes it officially important.
With all the big! exciting! Harry Potter things happening, it’s easy to miss the little Harry Potter things. Sure, we got an extended look at Harry’s life 19 years after the Battle of Hogwarts, but we need to take a second and discuss the absolutely flawless and amazingly perfect shoes Miss Rowling wore to the press preview of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child on the weekend.
People, they are GOLDEN SNITCHES.
So sleek. So shiny. So Harry. Did J.K. Rowling just out-do every Harry Potter cosplayer ever? It’s possible.
Of course, she looked stunning from head to ankle as well, sporting a simple navy number and looking exactly as exceptional as we would have expected the mother of our favourite childhood fantasy world to be.
So where do we get our hands on some of our own snitch shoes? Well, right here! They were designed by Sophia Webster who has basically become our new shoe god. Honestly, she’s worth a look even if you’re not on the hunt for gorgeous Harry Potter-themed footwear.

Is there ever a time that we’re not completely stunned and impressed by Jo-Rowl? We honestly cant think of one. She may not be writing any more Harry Potter, but we certainly hope she sticks around for a long time to give us little gifts like this one.
