Ah, the internet. Full of challenges you never thought you needed and tidbits of mildly useful information that make you go…huh. In this case, people have been throwing their Vans shoes into the air to prove that the sneakers always land on their soles — no matter what. Say what? We know, it sounds a lil’ fishy. But honestly, check out these videos then get back to us.

Weird. But what’s even weirder is that people started throwing other pairs of shoes and achieving the same “success.” Did a pair of Crocs stand up to the test? You bet they did. A pair of Converse All-Stars? Them too. But let’s think logically. Shoes are likely going to land with their heaviest part hitting the ground, right?

It works for Vans, but what about old, worn out Conerse All Stars that I bought from Ross? pic.twitter.com/nOsM9KYqR6

Not so fast, though. Not everyone who has partaken in the #Vanschallenge has been met with an upright shoe. Behold:
