Luke Shaw has been showing off his new pair of custom made boots, supplied by Adidas.

The youngster has made a sensational start to life under Jose Mourinho, producing a series of imposing, controlled performances at left-back.

Shaw is set to return to action for Manchester United’s visit to Anfield after missing the last four games with a groin strain.

Ahead of what promises to be an absorbing encounter with Jurgen Klopp’s side, the left-back has revealed a trendy pair of custom made boots.

15th September 2015 is a day Shaw will never forget. A double leg fracture, picked up against PSV Eindhoven, marked the end of his season, and perhaps – as I genuinely thought at the time – the end of his career in earnest.

Of course, he would have returned no matter what; but as the same devastating force? A brief trawl through history sheds light on the irreversible trauma inflicted on youngsters with major injuries. This notion was only exacerbated by my own personal experience with a ruptured ACL and its notable effect on the way I move.

This is why the story of Shaw will never cease to be incredible: somehow, despite a year packed with mental and physical trauma, the Englishman has returned even stronger than before. It is a feat that borders on inconceivable, and United fans will be glad to see him – wearing his new boots, of course – return against Liverpool on 17th October.
