March 14 (UPI) -- Nordstrom's online store is once again making viral waves with an unusual product: window-legged pants dubbed "Clear Knee Mom Jeans."

The pants, by Topshop, feature plastic panels that act as windows at the knees of the high-waisted jeans, which are being sold on for $95.


"Slick plastic panels bare your knees for a futuristic feel in tapered and cropped high-waist jeans," the product's description reads.

The jeans have already garnered several tongue-in-cheek reviews.

"A successful resolve to the conundrum of maintaining your knee tan. The magnification and reflection will ensure a golden kneecap that knows no seasonal limits," one reviewer wrote.

"It's like a greenhouse for your knees!" another reviewer wrote. "I love me a sweaty knee. Definitely going to bust these out on a hot summer day, just to watch the condensation build in my knee-windows."

"I've been waiting for a product like this for what seems like forever. I like to keep an eye on my knees throughout the day so I've been stuck wearing only skirts and dresses. Now with my Clear Knee Mom Jeans I have a comfortable, stylish pants option in my wardrobe. Also great if your running late and only have time to shave a couple sections of your legs," an alleged customer wrote.


"A couple years ago when I first started momming I bought the clear elbows mom shirt, and was wondering when they would introduce the pants! I wait no longer and they match perfectly! I can't wait to wear my outfit to the next PTA meeting!" another review reads.

Nordstrom previously gained viral attention late last year when Internet users noticed a bizarre product on the site -- a small rock in a leather pouch marketed for $85.
