It’s been about two and a half years since the Internet was split in two over the color of a dress.
Friends turned on friends and family members turned on family members as a result of the debate. It got ugly.
Have we learned anything from that back-and-forth? Can we settle the next color-related fashion question more peacefully?
Let’s find out below, as a new debate has arisen over the following pair of Vans sneakers…
This is the Pieceof Footwear in Question
Quick, first reaction: WHAT COLOR IS IT?!?
The Details Behind This Debate:
The controversy started after a Facebook user named Nicole Coulthard shared a photo of this shoe to the group Girlsmouth. “Ok girls so my friend has just sent me this asking what colour the shoe is,” she wrote. “I would say pale pink and white, but she insists its pale blue and grey. What do you girls see? Please tell me pink and white!”
Cue the Internet Reaction
The confused Internet reaction, we should say.
Pink! Blue! Neither? Both?
What. The. Hell?!?
I’m scared, guys. What is going on?
How Did We Get Here?
Coulthard told Metro that her friend had bought the shoes a couple of weeks ago and sent a picture to her mom to show them to her. In response, the friend’s mom told her that blue suited her.’ She texted back saying they are pink, but when she looked at the pic she saw blue too. She sent it to me and I was convinced they are pink, we had a big argument as she said I only said pink because I knew she had bought pink shoes so that’s why I decided to put it up on girlsmouth.
