People Are Passionately Divided About Whether These Sneakers Are Pink And White Or Teal Or Gray

Kate is a writer who laughs at her own jokes and likes to pour too much hot sauce on her food.

What do you see when you look at these sneakers? I see grey and teal, but others claim to see white and pink.

The original photo was shared with Julia by her friend Alisha, who seems to know a thing or two about photography.

She explains that the lighting, and more specifically the flash can play tricks on our eyes when it comes to photographing colors.

In this photo of the same model sneaker, you can tell that the sneakers are most definitely not teal and grey.

To add to the confusion, different people are seeing different things when they look at the original photo.

Some people really do see pink and white instead of teal and blue.

Of course, we are all being reminded of the most infamous color optical illusion on the internet, “the dress.”

Last time this happened, people of course wanted to get to the bottom of what was going on.

USA Today explains that the lighting  in the photograph can mess with our perception of the true colors.

American University professor Arthur Shapiro, who specializes in visual perception told USA Today, “Individual wavelengths don’t have color, it’s how our brains interpret the wavelengths that create color,” and, “”In reality, it’s light coming off of the computer screen, and then our brain interprets it and those interpretations can differ.”

An easy to to visualize this is by messing with the color options on a photo editor. For example, increasing the shadow can make for a completely different color perception.

After all this talk, I think I’m starting to see the pink. What do you see?
