adidas and United Launch New Stone Roses Collection

At the heart of the collection is the Manchester United x Stone Roses Originals Icon Jersey, a tribute to the cover of The Stone Roses’ self-titled debut album, released in 1989.


The bold and unmistakable design, crafted by guitarist, John Squire, adorns the jersey with the red, white, and blue adidas three stripes on the sleeves and the golden lettering of ‘The Stone Roses’ inside the collar. The Manchester United crest is creatively adapted, featuring the words ‘This is the One’ and two lemon slices replacing footballs on either side. The signature adidas trefoil in red completes the look.


The lifestyle component of the collection boasts a black tracksuit, black shorts, long-sleeve t-shirt, scarf, and the quintessential bucket hat – all featuring the adapted United badge and the iconic Stone Roses lemons. It’s a range that allows fans to showcase their passion for both music and football beyond the pitch.


The on-pitch representation includes a pre-match jersey and reversible anthem jacket. The grayscale version of the Stone Roses album artwork and striking gold accents for the adidas logo, United badge, and official sponsor make a powerful statement.
