    On my phone it was pink and white. Just looked on my desktop and instantly saw green and grey.

    Also could this be one of those eye illusions where you stare at a single spot on an image for a really long time and because of how it burns into your retina the colors change

    you guys know what i mean like a 3d puzzle kinda

    I see grey and green, but I am pretty sure they are pink and white in reality, because Vans generally have white soles, or, rather the rubber bit around the bottom is white.

    On my phone, grey and green. On my laptop, pink and white. Not sure whether either device is broken or just me.

    It's grey and green and anyone saying otherwise is a liar.

    It's pink and white, although that pic has clearly been mucked about with. I can see the greenish tinge, but I can't fathom which bit is meant to be grey and which green in that reality - are the white bits green and the pink bits grey?

    The grey bits are grey and the green bits are green.

    They're largely the same unless you're blind.

    I would have said the person with the poor ability to perceive colour differences is the blind one.

    EDIT:



    Like c'mon.

    Yeah, I was going to caveat that with 'in which case they are the same' but I couldn't figure a way to do it.

    Is it a poor ability to perceive colour, or is it just a more efficient brain reaching the right conclusion despite (albeit poor) efforts to deceive it? That's what sight is isn't it, your brain making shit up from various inputs?

    Grey and green but could tell it was edited.

    Thanks for posting the pink/white original, Dr.

    I was watching a Brian Cox thing waiting for the snooker the other day and it really hit home what an absolute miracle sight is. If it hadn't happened we wouldn't even be able to comprehend its existence.

    I don't care what colour the shoe is.

    Some other method of perceiving our surroundings would have developed, light is just more abundant than other sources of sensory information.
