Let’s face it: “Star Trek” fashion has always been hit or miss over the decades. But we can all agree that the finished uniforms featured in the “Star Trek: Discovery” seasons and its upcoming spinoff, “Star Trek: Strange New Worlds,” get high marks on their cool factor.
Now, thanks to designer John Fluevog, fans will be able to walk the boulevards in the same awesome officer boots as stars Anson Mount, Rebecca Romijn and Ethan Peck featured in “Star Trek: Strange New Worlds.” They will cost $399.
Fluevog has collaborated with Paramount to deliver a vision of the futuristic Starfleet shoes the cast of the series will wear when the warp engine is activated. Fluevog is an avid follower of all things “Star Trek” and its benevolent 22nd-24th century version, so his union with one of the most beloved sci-fi franchises of all time makes perfect sense.

Fluevog designs boots, loafers, sandals and a variety of other footwear for men and women. Its 24 stores around the world offer cool walks for rock stars, artists and celebrities of all stripes. Now, he’s joined the “Star Trek: Strange New Worlds” production team to create the stylish officers’ slip-ons that will appear onscreen for the entire first season.
Part of the company’s Manifold Witness family of boots, these “Star Trek” themed accessories are carefully crafted with soft leather and elastic uppers. An all-leather harness and bronze-finished “Star Trek” delta insignia at the ankle accentuate the sci-fi feel.
“The original ‘Star Trek’ uniform is so iconic, including those Cuban-style boots,” Bernadette Croft, ‘Star Trek: Strange New Worlds’ costume designer, said in a statement. “It was an honor to team up with Fluevog and give the boots an updated look. The stretch back makes it easy for our cast to fit and the rubber soles absorb shock which comes in handy on the concrete floors of the studios. The leather is soft yet durable. We’ve had countless racing and action sequences, and the Fluevog boots never fail. … They look futuristic and bold and are my favorite part of the uniform. Such a strong figure!”
