Pittsburgh Steelers running back James Conner has paid tribute to Mac Miller, honoring the late rapper by sporting a pair of custom cleats.
Miller — who died on Sept. 7 at the age of 26 — was a Pittsburgh native and a devoted fan of its NFL team. On Saturday (Sept. 15), Conner — who played college football at the University of Pittsburgh and was drafted by the Steelers in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft — tweeted out several photos of the cleats, writing “Thank you Mac.”
The phrase appears on the cleats as well, along with Miller’s face and several of his song titles.
The Steelers are slated to take on the Kansas City Chiefs tomorrow (Sept. 16) at 1 p.m. EST. Check out Conner’s tweet below.
