While distressed jeans with holes and tears have been around for years, Nordstrom has taken the idea further with pre-muddied jeans for $425.

“Heavily distressed medium-blue denim jeans in a comfortable straight-leg fit embody rugged, Americana workwear that’s seen some hard-working action with a crackled, caked-on muddy coating that shows you’re not afraid to get down and dirty,” reads the description on Nordstrom’s website.

The pants quickly drew criticism online as people took aim at the concept as well as the hefty price tag. People also questioned who would buy type of product.

Twitter users also joked about easily being capable of dirtying jeans themselves.


Earlier Tuesday, Topshop’s new pair of clear plastic jeans also faced criticism online for looking like a “rain coat” for your legs.


Nordstrom did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
