A theory that Vans shoes always land right side up has gone viral.
The latest social media challenge was launched when Twitter user @Ibelievthehype set out to prove the hypothesis, sharing a video with the caption “Did you know it doesn’t matter how you throw your Vans they will land facing up.” In the clip, the lace-up sneakers were seen flipping in the air and surprisingly hitting the floor flat on their soles.

The footwear experiment continued to gain traction on Twitter, with more users whipping out their own pairs of Vans to prove the phenomena. Individually or in pairs, they were chucked across the room — and in one instance, tossed from a second floor.
In some videos, it appeared that the sneakers fell on their side — only to stun users when they ultimately landed lace-side-up.
