By now, we’ve all seen the pictures and video of Taylor Swift’s A-lister suite at the Super Bowl. Among her pack for the occasion were gal pals Ice Spice, Keleigh Sperry and Blake Lively.

On Feb. 20, Lively shared a few snippets from her camera roll to Instagram from the occasion, and provided a shocking revelation: the red Balengiaga x adidas track pants she wore were actually combination shoe-pants, or “shants” as she aptly referred to them.

“Last week I left my kids for the first time ever and wore pants that were shoes ... And I went clubbing,” the 36-year-old mom of four wrote in part of her caption. “Now I know what my episode of the Twilight Zone would look like. 💥🙌😆♥️🥰.”

Plenty of the Gossip Girl star’s 44.6 million followers chimed in to the comments section of the post to engage in a lively discussion regarding the confusing concept of the garment.

“Omg so if your feet start to hurt you have to take off your pants?!” Cat Quinn inquired.

“Obsessed with the whole entire fit 🙌,” Tori Gerbig stated.

“I had no idea what you meant with the pant shoes I just thought bc adidas then I really zoomed in omg,” another added.

“when a pant is a shoe idk what to do,” one account noted.

“Sorry I can’t come in, I can’t take my pants off at the door 😂,” an additional fan joked.

“But were the shoes comfortable?” someone else asked.

“Pantsuits > Pantshoes,” the official Betty Booze sparkling cocktail brand account wrote.
