For those who need a reference point, here are two videos that really prompted the movement so to say:

In case that wasn't clear, the trick simply requires a person to imagine a box in front of them, 'step over it' and then walk forward.
"Honestly, that was the first time I had ever tried it," Ariel Olivar, a junior at Manvel High School, Texas told Chron.com. "The video was my third time trying it. It's hard to explain, I just keep the leg in the same exact spot. It is actually kind of challenging keeping it there. The technique, if you want to make it look like [the video], is to bring the other leg higher than the other as if you are actually stepping over a box."
While Ms Olivar's explanation seems easy enough to understand, it is far tougher to actually follow to get the perfect result.
Even though many on social media have mastered the trick, others, not so much. Take a look:
