Take a look at this photo: What color are these shoes?

I see teal and grey, and while many others do as well, apparently another chunk of the population sees these shoes as pink and white. Yep, it echoes that blue/black or white/gold dress photo that was making the rounds in 2015.
Here's what the shoes look like on Vans' website:
As with the dress, the reason each of us see the sneakers as one set of colors or the other is "a perception issue. It's the way the brain processes information that comes in," eye surgeon Paul Dougherty told TODAY in 2015. "Everyone's brain is different, so even though it's the same stimulus coming in, which it is, everyone processes the information differently."
Is there any more fitting metaphor for our society today, where we all look at the same issues—political, social, economic, religious—and cannot agree on what we see?
