Talking about the shoes, Nicole told the Metro that the trainers belong to her friend and in reality, they are pink and white. She said that the confusion first began when her mom complimented her on her new “blue” shoes. She added saying, “She texted back saying they are pink mum, but when she looked at the pic she saw blue too. She sent it to me and I was convinced they are pink, we had a big argument as she said I only said pink because I knew she had bought pink shoes so that’s why I decided to put it up.” What do you think is the color of the shoes?
