Remember the red and gold Nike LeBron 11 Elite that surfaced over the weekend? Rumored to be half of a celebratory championship pack, the shoe may still be making its way to retail.

Following a motif established by last year's 'Champion Pack' Nike LeBron 10 Elite, this pair is primarily decked out in red with metallic gold accents and a flaked translucent outsole. These new photos include a look at the boxtag, an indication that these will soon be available in stores.

Is their precedent for releasing a championship shoe despite the signature athlete not winning? Look no further than the 'Miami Nights' LeBron 8 V/2 Low, which was originally supposed to be LeBron's championship parade shoe in 2011.

No word yet on the LeBron 11 Low that was also previewed.

As of now, there are no release details for the LeBron 11 Elite SE, but we'll continue to follow the story here at Sole Collector.
