It’s not everyday that fashion delivers a deliciously bewildering moment on the runway, but when it happens, it’s truly *chef’s kiss*. In the case of Paris Fashion Week, which is underway through Wednesday, Oct. 6, the label that got fashion lovers talking over the weekend was Loewe, currently helmed by creative director Jonathan Anderson.

The 37-year-old designer made waves with a series of shoes that featured a variety of kitschy designs for the actual heels. There were strappy, open-toed sandals set atop a pair of fake nail polish bottles. Other alternative heels included pink and white birthday candles, crushed red roses, and — wait for it — cracked eggs. Yes, as in the kind of eggs you make for breakfast. Quite the concept, isn’t it?

Now, as someone who is low key obsessed with eggs in all shapes and varieties — no, seriously, I will have them scrambled, poached, for breakfast, lunch, and dinner — I can’t lie: My immediate reaction to seeing these egg-adorned heels from Loewe was that of profound admiration and appreciation. I mean, eggs are one of the most versatile foods in existence. Why wouldn’t you want to pay tribute to them with your wardrobe?

I’m also into this very literal approach to the phrase “walking on eggshells.” Because if you’re going to be on edge — as the meaning behind the popular phrase suggests — you might as well look good.

While my take is that I need these in my closet immediately, not everyone felt the same. Per usual, people made their opinions on Loewe’s egg shoes very clear on Twitter. Ahead, check out some of the best reactions to the brunch-ready footwear.
