No, not a new colorway of the Nike LeBron 11. This is the Champion brand's knockoff currently being sold at Payless.

The Hyperplastic is lacking a little, but they managed to slap on a gradient fade, and those mesh windows probably make this shoe more breathable than the actual LeBron 11. There's probably no Lunarlon or Zoom in the sole, but you get a sweet looking Champion logo on the heel.

Because of how that whole NBA Finals thing turned out, this is actually the closest we'll get to a 'Champion' LeBron 11. According to @RussBengtson, you can score a pair now at Payless for $35. I'm just disappointed Shaq didn't get to these first.
