Photos of an ordinary looking sneaker are currently the subject of intense debate on the internet as people can't decide whether the shoe is pink-white or grey-blue.
The photo was originally posted in a private group on Facebook and soon made it to Twitter as the debate escalated.

I can see the hue of pink in the shoe a tad when my brightness is all the way up, but the laces stay green.— Daniel Cross (@danny__cross) October 14, 2017

Gave up? The correct answer is pink and white. The blue and grey was the result of lighting and possible editing as explained in the tweet below and confirmed by scientists too.

The much talked-about dress was one of the biggest moments on social media in 2015. The colour of a tank top and a pair of slippers prompted a similar debate back in July but failed to scale the heights of internet popularity as 'The Dress'. Click for more trending news
