Ronnie Fieg Lets Loyal Customers Buy Kith x United Arrows x nonnative Early
Ronnie Fieg is rewarding Kith’s most loyal customers with the chance to cop the upcoming New Balance x nonnative x United Arrows collaboration early. Taking to Instagram, the Kith founder announced that customers who’ve previously purchased one of his New Balance designs have randomly been selected to receive early access to the upcoming 997 colourways.

I didn’t forget about the OG 997’s for the upcoming Kith x New Balance 2018 launch. I designed two Made in USA 997’s in collaboration with United Arrows & Sons and nonnative that are inspired by two of my favorite NB models ever. Kith as a brand is dedicated to supporting those who support us. That’s why we’re bringing back our Loyalty Program for these two styles. We’ve randomly selected customers who have purchased any of my past collaborations with New Balance to receive early access to these pairs via invoice. Since there’s less pairs of these than past customers, not everyone will receive an invoice. But if you do receive one, you will have 24 hours to checkout before it’s voided and moves to the next person on the list. We randomized who will receive which colorway, so hopefully you like the one you’re offered because we can’t change it. Lastly, we can’t guarantee your size but can guarantee 1 pair. The team has been hard at work at this to make sure our loyal customers know how much we appreciate them. Invoices being sent out shortly!
Inspired by the ‘Dune’ nonnative x New Balance 997.5 from 2011 and the United Arrows x New Balance 997.5 from 2009, six unique pairs will be releasing in the near future, all with unique design alterations. Only two of the six will be available to selected customers for 24 hours before they lose eligibility — check out the colourways in the embed above.
If you missed out on an invoice from Kith, fear not — Ronnie’s also holding a photo competition on Instagram to award 12 lucky winners one of the collaborative six pairs releasing.

For Kith x New Balance 2018, I’ve designed a new collection for two of my favorite brands/retailers that are inspired by two of my favorite New Balance sneakers ever - the United Arrows & Sons 997.5 and the nonnative 997.5. Using those as our inspiration we’ve designed 6 new models, all on the 997 silhouette. This is the 997S Fusion in the Kith x nonnative colorway. The Fusion combines a Made in USA upper with NB’s new Sport tooling. With this release I want to give back to those who have been riding for the brand. That’s why we’re hosting a competition where 12 winners will be gifted 1 of the Fusion colorways from the collection. To enter, post a picture of any of my past 12 collaborations with New Balance in the same style as this picture and tag @kithfootwear. I will be picking my favorite of the photos personally. If you need a refresher on my past NB collabs we’ve made a webpage showing the timeline. Link in bio. Excited for people to get their hands on these. Kith x UA&Sons x nonnative x New Balance up next.
