Netflix’s You People hit the streaming platform on January 27, arriving as a watch fit for rom-com fans — and sneaker lovers.
In this romantic comedy directed by Kenya Barris, Jonah Hill and Lauren London lead the way as an interracial couple whose relationship is put to the test when it’s time to meet the families. You People‘s cast was stacked, to say the least, starring Hill, London, Eddie Muprhy, Nia Long, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and David Duchovny.
In between comedic relief and serious societal conversations (white privilege, tokenism, etc.), the film supplied plenty of fashion and sneaker moments, from Gucci to Nike.
With Barris in the director’s chair, it wasn’t surprising to see the most sought-after shoes earning star moments in the movie (his love for kicks is made abundantly clear in his other projects like Blackish and Black AF). It was enough to make the most diehard sneakerhead eyes light up and tune into the rom-com for more.
We took the liberty of rounding up the best sneaker moments from Netflix’s You People, which includes instances of Dunks and even Yeezys.
To the sneakerheads who sit up like the Leonardo DiCaprio meme every time a pair of kicks appear on the screen, this is for you.
Supreme x Nike SB Dunk Low
Kicking off the film, Jonah Hill wore the Supreme x Nike SB Dunk Low shoes in Hyper Royal during church with the family.
Indeed, they say “come as you are,” even if that’s in $600-plus sneakers.
Air Jordan 1 “Lucky Green”
Upon meeting Hill, who stumbled into her car thinking she was an Uber, Lauren London wore a chic look, including a Marine Serre top and leather trousers topped off with the Air Jordan 1 “Lucky Green.”
Meeting the love of your life in the Lucky Green 1s? Coincidence, I think not.
Off-White™ x Nike Dunk Low
Next up, we have Hill again flexing some Dunks, specifically from the Off-White™ x Nike Dunk Low Lot collection, during his first date with London’s character.
The Shoe Surgeon’s Air Jordan 1 “North Pole” Chicago
While visiting Kulture (Hollywood’s Just One Eye in real life), Hill and London were met with a slew of hyped shoes, including the Shoe Surgeon’s Air Jordan 1 “North Pole” Chicago (they’re fetching $5k on eBay as we speak).
Yeezy Boost 700 “Enflame Amber”
To cop or not cop the Enflame Amber 700s? Hill debates.
UNDEFEATED x Nike Kobe 5 Protro
While in an LA barbershop, Hill (attempted) to bond with Eddie Murphy, who plays London’s father, while suited up in Lakers gear and UNDEFEATED’s Nike Kobe 5 Protro collab.
Sean Wotherspoon x Nike Air Max 1/97
Here’s to the couple flex in Sean Wotherspoon’s Nike Air Max 1/97 sneakers (somewhere in the world, a sneakerhead who took an L on these just shed a tear).
