Optical Illusion Sneakers Teal and Gray or Pink and White

The Internet Is in a Tizzy Over What Color These Sneakers Actually Are

Move over, The Dress. There's a new optical illusion in town, The Sneaker, and it's blowing minds and starting fights all across the internet.

It's been more than two years since The Dress divided households around the world into two camps: those who saw blue and black and those who swore it was white and gold.

As the internet continues to rage on about what it is that it sees, we'll leave this up to you to decide. Just don't let it get between you and your loved ones, OK?
