"Why can't we have nice things like Canada?"

Justin Trudeau’s sock game is out of this world and in a galaxy far, far away.

The Canadian prime minister revealed a pair of Chewbacca socks at the Bloomberg Global Business Forum and a Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation event in New York City on Wednesday:

So fun! 
So fun! 

They appear to be a pair of $20 “Chewie” socks from the brand Stance, which Trudeau has worn before:

Of course, people on Twitter went crazy for Trudeau’s socks:

Even William Shatner of “Star Trek” fame chimed in and jokingly called out Trudeau:

Trudeau, who is known for his strong sock game, wore a mismatched pair of “Star Wars”-themed socks earlier this year. The date was May 4, also known as #MayTheFourthBeWithYou, or Star Wars Day.

Never change, Trudeau.
