Yes, there's a YouTube channel devoted entirely to sawing sneakers in half.
While this may surprise some readers, they would do well to remember that this is far from the strangest sneaker thing to ever come from the website – anyone who's seen clips of people stepping on pizzas in vintage skate shoes knows that.
The man behind the relatively new channel takes all sorts of sneakers, like the Jordan 5s and Jordan 10s here, and pretty much bisects them. This is all ostensibly for the purpose of showing viewers how shoes are made, although the videos are lacking some depth in analysis there.
If nothing else, the clips offer up a weird bit of sneaker masochism. That being said, they might evoke flashbacks for anyone who's felt the pain of having a vintage pair of shoes in their collection fall apart. You've been warned.
