LeBron meets South Beach meets…Air Yeezy 2? Here’s a look at a pair of LeBron 9 Customs dubbed the ‘Snakeskin South Beach’ (for obvious reasons); it captures the tonal turquoise blue from the original South Beach thanks to a re-painted upper, but DeeNyce911, the creator of this custom sneaker, brings in the Air Yeezy 2 element by applying the snakeskin-like material in the weave panel in a similar placement seen on the Air Yeezy 2. The level of craftsmanship might not be “up there” among the Maches and Negrons of the world, but give credit to DeeNyce911 for making the admirable attempt at the faux-snake in the first place! We’ve got a few more angles for you to examine below, so take a look and let us know what you think. Photos: Paintorthread

to all the people commenting on thses shoes 90% of yall dont know what the F*&k your talking about..first if you dont like the colorway or feel there are to many south beaches done...thats fine IDGAF.. 2nd these where done from a pair of China 9'd the midsole was painted black and I used sea glow and blue die to make the bottoms icey...there was no tape used ..the snakeskin is 100% real and not faux .the inside was dyed black with RTE fabric dye. this internet ish is funny..you get one person to hate and then the rest follow like a group of highschool girls...the shoes are 75%done so fall back..the lion was taken off a pair of 8's and stitched on top of the old tounge...
they're already on the burners...now just light em up and put those abominations out of their misery.
There is ONE cool thing and it's that he cut a template of the lebron 9 tongue and cut off the lion from a lebron 8 (REALLY hoping it came from an og blk/red pair or black/black and not south beach 8's). That is a cool IDEA if executed right, but it looks like TAPE he secured it with. The BIGGEST problem like many said: THESE GOTTA BE FAKE LBJ 9's. What LBJ 9 came w/ a clear outsole and black lining? Christmas-No, China-No? And those laces, they are not any Lebron 9 lace I know of. And the "snake skin" appears to be legitimately done with TAPE...i rly believe it is duct tape, wide electrical tape, or cut from a larger piece of sticky vinyl. I'd love to have deenyce911 defend the info and prove us wrong but i doubt it. I can't/won't condone fakes in ANY capacity, but the brightest light is that u probably didnt ruin a real lbj9.
Fake shoe, fake snake, fake fly wire, fake lion, fake kitchen, fake stove, We're dreaming yall!!! This ain't real lmao
Okay, I'm going to say this one fucking time. THE LEBRON 9 DOES NOT HAVE A LION ON THE TONGUE!!!!! GET IT THE FUCK TOGETHER SNEAKERNEWS.
STOP IT WITH THE SOUTH BEACH CUSTOMS!!! i thiink every shoe now has a south beach cw custom damn! smh
SNEAKERNEWS FOR REAL!? HE CUSTOMED A FAKE LBJ9 "SOUTH BEACH". WAKE UP, U DROPPED THE BALL ON THIS 1 GUYS! >:( + IT LOOKS HORRIBLE
Lol I mean I actually at least wanna just say it was a nice attempt but I can't even bring myself to say /that/....maybe next time man, maybe next time.
what the phuck is this? These look 10x worse than the fake azz South Beaches that are for sale on ebay, get this ish out of here!
@EDDIE IM NOT MAD SON...I JUST DONT LIKE HOW DUDES IS ON SOME FOLLOW THE HATER ISH...I MEAN READ THE COMMENTS..ONE DUDE SAID NO LEBRON 9'S CAME WITH A CLEAR SOLE..WHEN THE CHINAS AND THE CHRISTMAS ONES HAVE CLEAR SOLES AND ALSO NIKE I.D LEBRONS AS WELL....HATE IS HATE BUT THATS WHAT LAMES DO..THEY FOLLOW..i ROCKED THESE YESTERDAY AT THE OPENING FOR THINK LIKE A MAN AND i HAD MAD OFFERS FOR THEM..LIKE I SAID B4 THE PICS WHERE FROM WHEN THE SHOES WHERE 75% COMPLETE NOW THEY ARE DONE AND THEY ARE FIRE REGARDLESS WHAT A HATER SAY.
Man F the haters dogg!! When can we start ordering these? I need a pair so I can put it up for purchase at a Blind people's auction. THEY ARE GOING TO GO HAM FOR THESE!! I can see it already
this is deenyce911 ...the shoe was a china lebron 9..I died the tounge and inside with rte black fabric die.. the snakeskin is real and not fake or fake gator as some idiots posted.. I cut the tounge off a pair of all black 8's I made the lbj logo from scratch. the shoe was hand painted and not airbrushed..I should have airbrushed the shoe but with this shoe I was just trying a couple of new things...the shoe in the pic is 75% done and still needs to be sewed some more. it is not complete so kill all the hate...and for the idiots saying this is a fake 9 south beach you are wrong dummy..the fake south beaches have a teal bottom not clear bottom....the shoe is a work in progress...but I didnt make it for you or to sell I made it for me..and if you can do better than go ahead.
