These Hideous Mom Jeans With Plastic Knees Have Some Serious Explaining To Do

Mom jeans are getting the update they probably didn’t need.

Nordstrom is selling a monstrosity known as Clear Knee Mom Jeans, made by Topshop.

Per the very brief product description:

Slick plastic panels bare your knees for a futuristic feel in tapered and cropped high-waist jeans.

Where do we start? Do jeans really need plastic? Do they really need to feel futuristic? We don’t recall anyone on Star Trek wearing cool boot cut jeans while hurtling through the cosmos.

And let’s not lose sight of how this will hit you in the non-opaque pocket — it costs $95. It’s ridiculous and if you don’t believe us, just check out the very tongue knee-in-cheek reviews.

Sure, mom jeans have been the domain of well, moms, on the hunt for a casual look as they shuttle their progeny to and from soccer practice, so it’s not a crime to add some flair. However, this attempt appears to be a whiff because, as you might imagine, the jeans were met by a befuddled internet.
