The upcoming Kith x New Balance “City Never Sleeps” shoe, which is set to drop Black Friday (November 27th), has garnered the attention of sneakerheads all over the world.

So far, Ronnie Fieg, owner of Kith and designer of the sneakers, has been teasing the Internet with only filtered photos of obscured views of the shoe.

Much love to my brother @ronniefieg for these heaters dropping BLACK FRIDAY!! #kithset   A photo posted by Action Bronson (@bambambaklava) on

Yesterday, chef turned rapper Action Bronson took to Instagram to thank Fieg for blessing him with a pair of the shoes a few days shy of its official release date. In the caption, Bronson affectionately refers to the shoes as “heaters”, a clear indication of his approval of Fieg’s creation.

This isn’t the first time the chubby rapper got first dibs on highly anticipated sneakers; a quick look at his previous photos shows that he’s always been at the forefront of the sneaker game.

Good food, good music, nice kicks, Bronson sure has it all.
