This photo of a sneaker has gone viral for the strangest reason

Shoegate Facebook

Oh, man. Not again.

Today on the Internet, a photo of a running shoe is going completely viral because Facebook users can’t decide if it’s pink and white or grey and blue (aqua if you want to be specific).

Much like the black and blue/ white and gold headache that was THAT DRESS, the sneaker gained the attention of the interwebs after a simple Facebook post to the group Girlsmouth. 

As reports, Nicole Coulthard shared a photo of the shoe in question to Facebook, asking her connections to help her out:

“OK girls so my friend has just sent me this asking what colour the shoe is, 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!”

The post attracted a wave of comments, with thousands of people sharing their thoughts on the matter (the shoe obviously looks grey and aqua, people). 

The Metro reached out to Coulthard to try and solve the mystery surrounding #shoegate. Coulthard confirmed the shoe in the photo is actually pink and white. WHAT IN THE WHAT?!

Apparently, the sneakers belong to a friend of hers and the confusion started when the friend’s mum complimented her “blue shoes”

So, yeah – we can obviously never trust our eyes again. If you need us, we’ll be studying the photo of this damn shoe for the rest of the week.
