Vans shoes appear to have cat-like reflexes, according to the latest viral theory that has people throwing their shoes to see if they land right side up.

When Twitter user @Ibelievthehype shared a video on Twitter saying "Did you know it doesn't matter how you throw your Vans they will land facing up," a challenge was born. He showed a pair of Vans sneakers flipping into the air, and then landing sole-side down.

People became curious. Then, they pulled out their shoes and started chucking them across floors, sharing their own shock in videos using the hashtag #VansChallenge.

Many people also had the same results, and some dubbed the phenomena as "wizardry" and generally, a cool feature of the shoes.
