Leave it to Vancouver designer John Fluevog to boldly go where no shoe has gone before.
Footwear in the show Star Trek: Strange New Worlds created by Fluevog debuted with the recent season’s launch on May 5.
Fluevog is a legendary designer known for his innovative, whimsical and unexpected work, which has been worn by stars such as Beyoncé, Madonna and Dr. Bonnie Henry.

The announcement of the iconic partnership says Fluevog has “always felt a strong affinity with those who share his utopian vision of a world free from the conflicts and prejudices of the past,” inspiring him to launch the Starfleet boot.
Little did he know that these shared values would neatly lead him to a partnership with one of the world’s largest science fiction franchises,” the statement said.
The shoe really does look like it was made for a sci-fi world, with sleek silver accents and mostly neutral tones.
His Starfleet boot is featured on the officers in the show. It will be widely available online and in Fluevog stores as part of the designer’s Fall/Winter 2022 collection.
It is already available for pre-order on the Fluevog website.
Extensions to John’s futuristic Manifold family, the boots feature a soft leather and elasticated upper with a leather harness and a bronze finish. Star Trek delta badges at the ankle,” the statement said.
In Canada, fans can watch the 10-episode season of Strange New Worlds on Bell Media’s CTV Sci-Fi Channel and Crave.
The series will air on Bell Media’s CTV Sci-Fi Channel and stream on Crave in Canada, with additional international availability to be announced at a later date. The series is distributed by Paramount Global Content Distribution.
