Were you expecting something easy and straight-forward from Miuccia Prada this season? Of course you weren't! We'll get to the collection in a moment: For now, let's discuss the leather toe-socks she sent down the runway. Apparently based on traditional tabi socks—those ones with the big toe sewn in so you can pair them with your Geisha sandals flip-flops—have garnered a spectrum of reactions on Twitter. Some of our favorites, after the jump.

Unabashedly enthusiastic:

The Spring #Prada shoes are CRAY" My favorite kind.


For the record: I am totally in favor of those #prada shoes.—@stellabugbee


So who's going to be the first asshole to wear the Prada leather toe socks?—@PBAmanda


Prada mood cycle:Not sure I like this/this is weird/oh god those shoes/these colours are perfect/this is genius/dying with desire— ?@franburnslondon


lemme wrap up the #Prada SS2013 look in one phrase: "Tabi Gevinson"—?@nickschollVEVO
