The word on the street is that there actually is a Nike LeBron 11 “Watch The Throne” out there that was actually produced by Nike.  Sadly for us, much like the original “Watch The Throne” colorway that we saw in the Nike LeBron 9, only those well connected to the swoosh or know somebody like LeBron James will ever get a chance at owning a pair.  But in this day and age when customs are all the rage, you too can have these exclusives for the right price and most people will be none of the wiser.

Enter this version of the “Watch The Throne” Nike LeBron courtesy of Mache Customs for @therealsneakerheadfrat.  The detailing is very similar to the friends and family version, but this one also comes with a ostentatious lace lock that is similar to the one found in the “Watch The Throne” Nike LeBron 9.  Add the Givenchy-esque laces and collar and you have what Mache likes to call “customs that look like samples”.

With the launch of the Nike LeBron 12 inching closer and closer, are people starting to now appreciate the Nike LeBron 11 thanks to customs and samples like these or will this be just another footnote in a shoe that has been as polarizing a release as there has been in years?  Are you hitting up Mache right now to see if you can get these as well for your collection?  Let us know in the comments below
