To commemorate and celebrate the 140th anniversary of the founding of Newton Heath Manchester United F.C – one of the most recognised football clubs worldwide —Manchester United and adidas Originals have teamed up to release their fourth collaborative shoe, ‘Newton Heath’.
Newton Heath inspired by the club’s heritage and origin as a football team for the workers of the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Company’s Carriage and Wagon department.
Newton Heath’s shoes feature the club’s original green and gold football kit, which also had a short stint in the 1990s used as one of United’s most extravagant away kits, complete with traditional gold foil lettering bearing the new moniker. The insole of each shoe features a screen printed map of the club’s old ground plus debossed onto the heel sits “EST 1878”.
This collaboration shoe includes custom Newton Heath’ tipped laces, and a laser engraved Devil on the heel of the right foot, an emblem which has been used by the club since the late ’60s. Underfoot, the premium pair sits atop a semi-translucent black gum rubber outsole.
The adidas Originals Newton Heath will be exclusively available from our Manchester store on Friday 7th December, priced at £90.
