People are throwing their Vans shoes at the floor as part of an online challenge

One of the more interesting online challenges that we've seen.

In the past, we've seen a great number of online challenges take the internet by storm and "go viral", as the saying goes.

Some of them have been for charity, while some of them have been purely for fun.

This most recent one definitely falls into the latter category.

The purpose of this challenge is to grab a pair of Vans, throw them into the air, and then hoping (or knowing, depending on how confident you are) that they will land facing up.

The challenge begun when Twitter user @ibelievethehype uploaded a video throwing her runners on the floor - landing lace-side up, alongside a caption that assured people that they would always land facing up, if you were to do the same.

And naturally, people gave it a go.

Many people had success, and bought into the theory:

Quite impressive, you'd have to admit.

Well, it's better than people throwing cheese at their babies and filming it. Yep, that's a thing that is happening these days.
