You've seen the racks of heat in the opening credits of HBO's Ballers, but last night's episode featured a sneaker moment that's sure to live on in the nightmares of hypebeasts everywhere.

Kicks on Firepointed out this scene which saw a pair of coveted Jordans get soaked. During a string of hazing tactics, we see one player's cherished "Doernbecher" Air Jordan IIIs take a dive in a bucket of ice water. If these were a leather-based sneaker or a pair of Nike Roshes, it wouldn't be much of an issue, but the delicate materials of these "Doernbecher" IIIs definitely weren't designed to be submerged in water.

We'll be sure to let you know if Ballers finds a way to top this sneaker moment as the season progresses.
