On a lengthy blockbuster movie press tour, most celebrities will start phoning it in after a few red carpet appearances. Not John Boyega, who rolled up to a Star Wars fan event in Tokyo in a fit that looked straight from a galaxy far, far away, where lapels and ties never really caught on. It helps to play a Jedi when rocking a sleek robe, but Boyega’s tonal approach brings the ensemble down to earth. The sneakers, on the other hand, are grails from a long time ago: Adidas Yeezy 750 Boosts, which dropped all the way back in 2015. It’s rare to see celebrities step out in “old” sneakers in today’s hype economy, but Boyega (that’s Jawn Boyega, to you) makes us wish we had kept our 750s on ice.
On a timeline full of cooked Baby Yoda memes, Boyega's fit is the palette cleanser we all needed.
