Impossible Pants

I saw Inception yesterday, and then today my friend Paul emailed me this picture:

Isn't this like the pants version of Penrose's Impossible Staircase? Where do the shoes end and the pants begin? Or am I just stuck in the third layer of a four layer dream about two layer shoe-pants?

God I have a headache.

I would wear those pants. :D

Those remind me of the footed pyjamas that little kids wear - you know, the ones with the plastic soles on the bottom of the feet.

It's like the live-action version of 101 Dalmations, where Glenn Close's character, Cruella de Ville had her Lee press on nail on her gloves, rather than on her actual fingernails... creepy.

You'd be really stuck if you got an itch on the bottom of your foot..

These FREAK ME OUT!! Are they shoes? Are they trousers? The lines between these two distinct items of clothing are becoming far too blurred for my liking!

when i saw these pants for the first time i thought they're hideous but my second thought (after confronting this: http://soulfulbeauty.com/images/articles/shoepants1.jpg )was - impossible is nothing. now i just wonder how they clean them - all or just the pants part?

God forbid you have to pee

Any laced-up pants are good with me.

Those pants could have used a better architect. Where is Ellen Page when you need her?!

Lorena said...

I cannot imagine having to pee in these pants, in a public bathroom...

Whit said...

Do not wear these while attempting to fly. They don't seem to be TSA approved.

Angela said...

Icky. They make me feel claustrophobic.

These pants terrify me. We're going to see the movie next week. If it's anything like the pants I think I'll spend a good part of it hiding behind my husband.

I also saw Inception yesterday. The day before, I saw Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus. Plotwise, of the two movies, Inception made immeasurably more sense.

Well, you wouldn't have to worry about your socks showing.

The Raisin Girl said...

Just wow. I agree, I totally call hax on these pants.

However, if I bought them I would proudly call them my Inception Pants. And then it would sound like I wore these pants for alien in vitro procedures.

Diana said...

Imagine trying to have a heated sexy moment in those pants. These are officially Buzzkill Pants.

Edana said...

I would wear those. And I would love them. Once I got dressed, I wouldn't have to worry about which shoes to wear. Also, it looks like they're stretchy, so you could probably just pull them down to use the bathroom.

So these are hilarious and I was actually made aware of their existence by seeing this pic of Willow Smith rocking them:

for her? Totally age-appropriate and pitch perfect I think. Everybody else? Nightmarish. Imagine having to go to the bathroom...???

I don't understand everyone's issue with using the restroom. Rarely does my using the restroom have anything to do with the bottoms of my pants or my shoes.

I imagine that there's some standard zipper or something to remove them - like normal pants. I think that the laces are for show, not for purpose.

Are they pants or shoes?

See, I had no problems understanding the impossible staircase but these pants... that's another story.
