The internet is currently arguing over a pair of sneakers. Now, if you are a participating member of The World Wide Web, it's likely that you’re immediately recalling the Great Debate of 2015, which occurred when people argued over whether a certain dress was blue and black, or white and gold. (We're sorry if this brings up bad memories for you.)
Scientists have proven that these types of discrepancies arise because people perceive color within the context that they’re perceiving the lighting itself. In other words, in the face of such uncertainty, people make assumptions based on what they've observed in the past. And since we all have different experiences that involve us observing different things, that leads us to reach different conclusions. Hence, the debate!
Some were Team WTF. 什么鬼小组

Some were Team Teal. 绿色小组

And others were Team Logic. 逻辑小组
THE REAL SHOE IS PINK & WHITE OKAY⁉
The second pic was with flash & darkened, so it looks teal & gray. (depends on what lighting ur in)
And of course, many were Team We Are Losing Our Minds:当然还有没脑子小组：
BUT IF IT DEPENDS ON THE LIGHTING THAN WHY DO MY FRIENDS SEE IT DIFFERENTLY THAN ME?!
But science aside, it’s still fun to argue over what your own brain is telling you you’re seeing.
[en]What do you see? Do you think this is internet-breaking worthy? Or, do you see “internet debate” and immediately want to hide under the covers ? Whichever it is, you're certainly not alone.[/en
