"I thought we were friends? Chewbacca socks?" William Shatner said.

Justin Trudeau had Star Wars fans swooning on Wednesday when he was spotted wearing Chewbacca socks at the inaugural Bloomberg Global Business Forum in New York.

And it wasn't just random nerds who noticed; even celebrities took note. 

"@JustinTrudeau I thought we were friends? Chewbacca socks?," William Shatner tweeted. 

The Canadian Prime Minister was onstage with Dutch PM Mark Rutte, discussing trade, when attention turned toward his foot attire. 

And this is not the first time Trudeau has made news wearing zany socks. In fact, he is well known for sporting fun socks regularly.  His style is so loved, The New York Times did an entire story in June on his fashion staple.
