Nike was set to release the LeBron 11 “Championship” pack, but unfortuantely LBJ’s Miami Heat fell in five games to the San Antonio Spurs during the NBA Finals.
Reports came out that Nike could still release the shoes, but possibly as an “Iron Man” colorway or something along those lines. However, it looks like Nike may not even be doing that.
Thanks to LeBron returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers, the brand may have found a perfect way to release both shoes together as a pack. According to Trusted Kicks and various other sneaker sources, the rumor coming out now is that the alleged “Champ” pack could release as the “Return” pack.
It’s the perfect gimmick for Nike as they look to capitalize marketing the King’s return to Cleveland, Ohio.
To help may further prove that this rumor may hold true, LeBron was seen wearing the “Champ” LeBron 11 lows just very recently:

If this “Return” pack is for real, expect these to drop in August.
Get ready, sneakerheads.
