In honour of celebrating 140 years of the club, Adidas have yet again teamed up with Manchester United to release a limited-edition ‘Newton Heath’ trainers. Manchester United, initially formed as Newton Heath LYR Football Club, were established in 1878 before the name was changed to Manchester United in 1902.
Paying homage to the club, the trainers are designed with respect to the club’s original green and gold kit, with a cargo green shade covering a major bulk of the boots. The back side of the boot has an embed of United’s Devil followed by the year ‘1878’ imprinted on it.

According to the Manchester Evening News, this limited edition only has 1200 pairs which will be made available for sale at selected stores in Manchester and will cost the buyers £89.95.
