adidas Originals has debuted a new sneaker honoring Manchester United‘s historic Champions League win in 1999. The sneaker — named the Barcelona 99 — takes its name from the city in which United triumphed, and is constructed from a pebbled leather upper, which is offset with a suede toe overlay and detailing in honor of the famous victory.

In reference to Manchester United’s iconic colors, the sneaker features a “Cloud White” upper with “Scarlet” detailing on the Three Stripe branding, heel tab and tongue branding. Other features include footbed images of the Manchester United badge in the left shoe and Ole Gunnar Solksjær celebrating his 93rd minute winner on the right.

Take a look at the special-edition Manchester United Barcelona ‘99 sneaker in the gallery above. It is available exclusively via a raffle on the adidas Originals app now, with the draw taking place on November 1.

In other footwear news, adidas Originals is bringing back the Oslo “City Series.”
