The blue one shall be mine. I have a thing for shoes. I’m worse than Imelda Marcos.

Airwalk still makes shoes?

November 11, 2009 2:19 pm

Anyone know if these will be on sale in the UK and where? Love ’em, want ’em!!!

November 11, 2009 2:19 pm

This is awesome. I like how they’re simple, yet get the message across in a subtle way.

November 11, 2009 2:20 pm

Do they think women don’t want to walk like Trekkies? Where’s the love for ladies’ shoes?

November 11, 2009 2:21 pm

Wow, that is nerdtastic.

November 11, 2009 2:27 pm

Fun! So, if you wear the red shoes, should you look over your shoulder alot?

November 11, 2009 2:28 pm

‘Nella, you don’t go with the hi-top look? My daughter and niece will definitely be getting these, but they do tend to wear this kind of stuff with their lime green tight jeans and little dead bunny t-shirts. Kind of the look.

Maybe some 5 inch stillettos with a delta shield at the toe would be a good idea for the more upscale lady.

November 11, 2009 2:32 pm

Nice looking shoe. Wonder if they have a pair without the Star Trek logos (that scream “NERRRRRD!!!!!”).

November 11, 2009 2:32 pm

If you buy the red ones do you run the risk of going on away missions to the shops only to be untimely vapourised by a giant man eating zepholopod from the planet Zykon 3??

November 11, 2009 2:40 pm

already ordered…

i wonder what would happen to me if i wore these?

November 11, 2009 2:48 pm

Now if they’d only come in women’s sizes, I’d be all over that. More so if it was converse sneakers.

November 11, 2009 2:50 pm

Good Lord.

I don’t know – but I definitely would NOT wear them to the firing range. Might shoot my own foot off!

November 11, 2009 3:10 pm

I read about these about a week ago and thought they weren’t for me, but now my shoes are starting to fall apart and some of my friends on campus are saying I should definitely get them, so I might.

I really like that they decided not to go with the metallic silver as the prototypes had, but I wish that they had kept the “Star” and “Trek” in the left and right shoes respectively and also the “NCC-1701” along the back of the heel.

I’m gonna go trekking in the trekkies.

And one more thing for the Christmas List.

November 11, 2009 3:18 pm

oh yeah, i’m getting’em.

November 11, 2009 3:23 pm

That has got to be the coolest thing I have ever seen.

They need a basic black version for dress uniforms…….I mean work clothes….

You know, like a stealthy trek kinda thing.

November 11, 2009 3:26 pm

So, so silly….I want them!

November 11, 2009 3:27 pm

I haven’t been big on buying Trek merchandise for years now, but HOT DAMN I want those shoes. Christmas List, here I come.

November 11, 2009 3:29 pm

November 11, 2009 3:30 pm

Really? A couple of things spring to mind:
1. ATHLETIC shoes and Trekkies (Trekkers), Is this an oxymoron? Unfortunately most of the fans I know arent exactly the ‘athletic’ type but if this gets them excercising then BRAVO! (Dont boo or hiss we know this to be true.)
2. Who will be brave enough to jaywalk in the red ones? Call me superstitious but I think thats taunting fate :)
3. Have we actually progressed in society enough that this wont be tantamount to wearing a sign around our necks saying, “Its OK, I wasnt interested in dating anyway…”. women notice shoes, this is a fact.
Im not being (too) sarcastic here and am seriously wondering if Trekdom is mainstream enough now that this will be ‘geek chic’.

November 11, 2009 3:57 pm

What is this mens sizes only nonsense? I hope I can get my feet into one of the smaller sizes. Yeah science blue! Too bad command gold is online only. Nerdshoegasm!

November 11, 2009 4:23 pm

1) Science blue.
2) Hey, what about women that are average foot size? I am a 7 womens and I am rather afraid I won’t fit into the smallest.
3) 49.99 is a lil pricey, especially for Payless.
4) Getting ’em anyway.
5) Hope the lil metal thing is removable so I don’t feel like too much of a dork when I wear these to school.
6) @AngryKlingon I notice shoes, but I think there are plenty of girls out there that a) won’t care or b) will like your dorkiness ;)

Unfortunately Reebok made Spock’s TFF levitation boots.

As for the others speculating on the deadliness of the red shoes, I think they are forgetting it’s the SHIRT (and maybe a dress or two) and not the shoes that carries the curse. There’s not one recorded scene of a dead Fed adorned in upper torso red wearing any shoe of matching color.

The only curse I’m aware of with regards to wearing red shoes is from a fairy tale.

November 11, 2009 4:48 pm

I wonder when they’ll do a Klingon shoe with the spike at the toe and the Klingon symbol?

November 11, 2009 5:04 pm

My husband and I will be in the US visiting family over the Christmas holidays. We will definitely be hitting Payless Shoe Source for those shoes.

I used to teach high school, and the Airwalk brand was quite popular amongst my students that identified themselves as skateboarders.

I have rather large feet for a woman and I sometimes purchase men’s trainers. They seen to be more comfortable than the women’s styles.


The witch in the film “Penelope” (2008) wore red trainers!

Klingon on to my thingy...

too bad the smallest equals a women’s 8 1/2…. they missed a big market there…

November 11, 2009 6:23 pm

$50?? I don’t think so.
Even when I get re-employed, I wouldn’t spend that!

November 11, 2009 6:32 pm

Nope. Jaywalking while wearing armadillo-skin boots – THAT’S tempting fate!
