Nike LeBron 11 'Watch the Throne'
words // Brandon Richard
How do you celebrate LeBron James' career-high 61-point performance? If you're LeBron's right-hand man Brandon Weems, you pull out a previously unseen 'Watch the Throne' version of the Nike LeBron 11.
The concept was first introduced on the LeBron 9 in celebration of Jay Z and Kanye West's Watch the Throne Tour. Staying consistent, the LeBron 11 sports a predominantly black upper, gold Swoosh branding, floral detailing and a blue-tinted translucent outsole.
We obviously shouldn't expect these to be made available to the general public, but it's interesting that they even exist. Will you try to track down one of the sample pairs?
UPDATE 9/22: The LeBron 11's time is just about up, but it doesn't hurt to take another look at this extremely rare sample. New images via @barneywang.
