The new limited-edition Newton Heath shoe from adidas Originals - celebrating 140 years since our club was formed - sold out in just 37 minutes but you can still get a pair, in an exclusive prize draw on the official Manchester United app.

The limited edition cargo-green shoe has a printed map of the Newton Heath in each sole, showing the old location of the ground where the original team played back in 1878, as well as the date and devil icon embroidered on the heel. Gold embroidery of the name Newton Heath completes the shoe.

We have five of the 1,200 pairs that were made and you could win one of them.

How to enter:

Step 1 - Download our official app
If you have already got the app on your mobile device - you might be reading this story there - then skip along to step 2! If you haven't, you can download the app now for free from Apple's App Store or the Google Play Store.

Step 2 - Register your details on the app
You might be using the app every day (thank you if so) but if you have not yet signed up in the My United section, then you won't be entered into the prize draw. To register your details, open the app and click Profile at the bottom of the screen.

It's as simple as that, if you complete both steps before the closing date of 23:59 GMT on Monday 17 December. We recommend you read the terms & conditions.

If you have previously registered your details on the app, at any time since it was launched in August, then you will be automatically entered into the prize draw.


The club was originally formed in 1878 by the Carriage and Waggon department of the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway depot at Newton Heath, and initially played games against other departments and rail companies at their home ground at North Road, Manchester.

During our time at North Road, the newly formed club participated in the Football Alliance, before expanding the capacity to 12,000 with the hope of joining the English Football League.

Newton Heath entered the English First Division – the highest league in the country at the time - in 1892, before changing its name to the now world-renowned Manchester United in 1902, and moving to the iconic stadium of Old Trafford in 1910.

An early scene at Old Trafford, where the club moved in 1910, eight years after changing name from Newton Heath.
The Newton Heath shoe is adidas' latest innovative way to celebrate our unique history following the current home shirt, which includes a railway graphic paying homage to the origins of the club, our away shirt celebrating the former Football Pink newspaper by the Manchester Evening News and, of course, our third kit which remembers our European Cup success in 1968.

Last year, adidas released the Ninety Two trainer, which celebrated 25 years since the famous 'Class of 92'.
