(RNN) - Nordstrom's newest pair of jeans gives a whole new meaning to "knee-jerk" after being mocked across the internet.

The retailer is selling a $95 pair of high-waisted blue jeans with plastic, see-through kneecap covers sewn in.

Nodstrom is advertising the pants as "futuristic" mom jeans, but they really just make the model's knees look like boiled chicken saved for later in Saran wrap.

If the eyes are the window to the soul, then these jeans are the plastic, see-through windows to the part of the imagination responsible for fashion nightmares like Kanye West's vagabond-inspired clothing line and bedazzled Juicy Couture track suits.

It's not clear if the pants are a popular seller, but the knee-jerk reaction doesn't look too promising. The product has been relentlessly mocked by online reviewers on the retailer's website. 

"These are great. It allows me to safely slide across the living room floor, so I can perform that scene from Risky Business safely," one reviewer wrote.
