I remember having extremely heated debates with my friends over a certain striped dress. Was it black and blue or white and gold?
Now the Internet wants me to get into an argument with my friends again! Users are once again divided over a pair of trainers: some are convinced the shoes are grey and aqua – while others believe they are pink and white.
Facebook user Nicole Coulthard shared a picture of her friend’s new shoes, asking people what color they thought they were.
Just like ‘the Dress’ beforehand a huge debate ensued. Nicole even admitted to getting into a ‘big argument’ over their color.
In a post to Girlsmouth, a Facebook group which has more than 98,000 users, Nicole captioned the image: ‘Ok girls so my friend has just sent me this asking what color 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 has garnered over 1,000 comments in just a day.
Speaking to Metro, Nicole said that the trainers had caused a ‘big argument’ with her mom as they rowed about their color.
She said: ‘She texted back saying they are pink mum, but when she looked at the pic she saw blue too.’
‘She sent it to me and I was convinced they are pink, we had a big argument as she said I only said pink because I knew she had bought pink shoes so that’s why I decided to put it up.’
The debate is similar to ‘the Dress’ that became a viral internet meme in February 2015.
Many viewers of the dress thought it was black and blue, but some argued that it was white and gold.
In the first week after it was posted more than 10 million tweets mentioned the dress, using hashtags like #thedress, #whiteandgold and #blackandblue.
