The internet is a wonderfully bizarre place and every day a new craze seems to come to life out of almost nowhere.

Firstly, the world of social media began challenging each other to see if their Vans would always land upright when thrown. After much research into the depths of the web, we can show evidential proof that this theory is pretty much on point.

Example 4: Even Vans joined in

Steve Van Doren, son of Vans co-founder Paul Van Doren proves that Vans are 'off the wall' after all.

 

Then Croc-wearers wanted to join in with the fun and decided to challenge Vans fans for the newly acclaimed title of ‘best shoe to flip’ and so we also have evidence of how great Crocs can flip.

Why do you own 11 pairs of Crocs?!

The contest has been all kinds of tense and with new entries coming in frequently who's to say whether Vans or Crocs will come out on top?

Most likely, we will never know the definitive winner and this craze will drop off social media as quickly as it emerged, leaving us all with just vague memories of these last few days. In years to come maybe someone will make a passing comment that reminds us all about the time people were filming themselves throwing their shoes...
