One pair of trainers, two different colours?

For several weeks now, an image has been going viral on the web. It all started at the beginning of January 2021 when an internet user shared a photo of a pair of trainers on his Twitter account. For the moment, nothing out of the ordinary, but just wait…

His trainers can be seen in the photo on a black background with several Louis Vuitton logos.

In his tweet, the photographer asked internet users:

Do you see back or white trainers here?? This is confusing my brain with what people are saying they see.

Since this post, the web has been abuzz. There is so much doubt that some people have even launched polls. 43.7% of people see white trainers and 54.1% see them as black. Yes, more than 2% of the internet users see them as neither white nor black, so who is right?
