The Miami Heat still have to win two straight games against the San Antonio Spurs in order to claim their second NBA Championship in a row.

The folks over at Nike are prepared, however, as they've already created a new colorway of the Nike LeBron X low to commemorate LeBron taking home his 2nd championship. The words "2-TIME CHAMPION" are written on one of the insoles, and "11-12 12-13" on the other.

If the Heat end up losing the series, Nike will just end up swapping out these insoles with blank ones and sell them anyway.

What do you think about this? Is Nike jumping the gun by leaking these pics? Or is it no big deal?

In case you were wondering, here are the shoes:

Obviously the next LeBron shoe has been in the works for a while now, and obviously Nike had to be prepared if he won the title. That's all fine. What isn't fine is that those shoes are ridiculously ugly and garish.
