Here on Sneaker News, our readers discussed the Nike LeBron 8 ‘South Beach’ to tedium, with the drawn line separating two major groups – the true sneaker fans, and the hypebeasts. The latter category is one that nobody admits to being a part of, but face it – we’ve all fallen victim to hype at one point or another. The South Beach LeBron 8 is one sneaker that always stirs up the ‘hypebeast’ debate, because at the time of its release, LeBron James was, arguably, the most hated man in sports, and the major reason many people were buying a LeBron shoe was due to it being limited in nature. Without surprise, the ‘hype’ surrounding the LeBron quickstrike release built, and the sneaker now fetches $1,000 with ease in the resale market.

Whether or not this display of sneaker sacrilege is a valiant attempt to prove a point or a pathetic attempt at sports performance is a judgement we’ll leave up to you. Elias of FeedingTheStreets and notable sneakerhead Franalations recently got together for a quick game of hoops, putting their own sneakers on the line. The losing player would burn their shoes, and it’s clear that Franalations and his Space Jam Dunks had a lot less on the line than Elias did, who put up his LeBron 8 ‘South Beach’ to the test. In the end, Elias lost a shortened game of HORSE, which resulted in his LeBron 8 South Beach experiencing Heat in many more ways than one. Check out the video below (wait ’til the very end) and let us know your opinion on the Burned South Beaches and the fact that someone actually did this!
