The INSIDER Summary:

  • - People can't tell if a pair of Vans sneakers is pink and white or gray and teal.
  • - This is because the photo was taken in bad lighting.
  • - Half of the people are unequivocally wrong.
  • - It's like the dress all over again.

In a situation that feels eerily reminiscent of the debate over the color of the dress in 2015, the internet is divided over the true color of a pair of sneakers.

 Other users say they see the same colors.

 However, some people see the shoes as pink with white stripes.

Further complicating this situation, one Twitter user manipulated the original photo to show that the sneakers are actually pink.

This changed the way a lot of people — including the original poster — saw the shoes.

One user tried to explain this phenomenon.
