Incorporating United’s colours, red, black and white features on the inner lining, the underside of the tongue and on the lace tips, while both Paul and Stan’s portraits feature on the left and right tongues. The finishing touch is the iconic red devil of Manchester United, which sits on the heel tabs.
This pair is limited to 1,946 pairs worldwide, which commemorates the year both Paul and Stan Smith were born.
