Okay, so he’s not exactly a fashion icon with his ginger mane and puggy nose, but Rupert Grint was sporting a rather spiffing t-shirt under his dad’s old suit at Tuesday’s Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix premier.

Vans are essentially a sports shoe, designed to take the rough and tumble associated with aggressive skating. That fact doesn’t stop them looking darn good though. Just check out these Vans TNT II.
