Real Humans React To 'World's Most Expensive Socks' (VIDEO)

The New York Post found what it has determined to be the "most expensive socks in the world" -- a $500 pair by Rodarte that can be purchased at Opening Ceremony (where else?). One of the Post's intrepid reporters took to the streets with the footwear -- made of mohair and totally not-washable.

Check out New Yorkers' reactions. We will admit, one of the women scared us...but what we want to know is -- did the Post purchase the socks? And if so, can we borrow?
