Everyone's got a pair of Vans runners at this stage - why not pick yours up and throw them right now.
2019 has been disappointing so far, in terms of viral sensations that is. Well, with the arrival of March and snowy weather, it turns out that we were just waiting for the boredom to settle in. Throwing your trainers on the floor is the newest sensation to grip social media.
The new sensation all began when Twitter user @ibelievethehype uploaded a video throwing her runners on the floor - landing lace-side up.
Did you know it doesn’t matter how you throw your vans they will land facing up pic.twitter.com/nKVJCncW4H

Of course, it has started an onslaught of copycats with similar results.

As well as proving that most of the time the trainers do indeed land correctly - people these days have way too many pairs.
Decided to do that vans thing when you throw them and they always land up and I’m pretty shocked 😅 pic.twitter.com/kVQBAi1kxT

The rules have been set; if they don't land lace-up - they're "fake".
if your vans don’t land facing up...they’re fake🤷🏽♀️. sorry I don’t make the rules

Shout out to the people out there who don't own a pair too.
I think I’m one of the few people who have never owned vans.... now I can’t throw them and see if that thing works like Twitter said it would pic.twitter.com/YTeQ0rDNi8
