NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – Recalling the debate over the color of "The Dress," celebrities and other social media users have recently been weighing in on the color of a Vans Old Skool sneaker which originally sparked debate two years ago.

Some see the shoe as gray and teal, others as pink and white.

Will Smith posted a video on Instragram touching on the debate, writing in the caption, “Which colors do you see?? There's no right answer, but it's definitely not pink, he says in the clip."

Musician Lizzo, who topped the charges this year with “Truth Hurts,” wrote on "I see grey and teal, but my whole team sees pink and white help."

The debate first started on Facebook in 2017.

The originator told Metro UK then that the debate started when her friend’s mom saw a photo of her pink and white shoes and thought they were in a blue hue.
