Apparently, cats aren’t the only things that always land right-side-up.

There’s a new viral trend of throwing Vans sneakers to see how they end up.

A Twitter user noticed vans shoes always landed upright when throwing them on the floor.

Who knew? Vans shoes apparently always land right side up…allegedly.

Of course, others had to test out that hypothesis and the hashtag Vans challenge was born.

Even Steve van Doren of Vans got in on the fun.

Here he is—throwing his shoes.

They all landed sole-side down.

It turns out…Many people came to the same conclusion.
