Following the last movie, someone ID'd the boots as being this (at that time already-discontinued) style. (Or, in black.)

I feel like I should thank someone for making Uhura's wetsuit slightly open and sexy down the front.

They should have redesigned the uniforms from the start. Radically updating the look of the Enterprise and then having everyone running around in the pajama uniforms was slightly odd.

It's akin to Batman running around in Adam West's costume in Batman Begins.

Not really, the redesigned uniforms look good compared to Adam West's Batsuit or most of the other Trek costumes, even though they are visually similar they are a completely different costume.

They are radical in the same way the Enterprise was radical but still give the same look while being a huge update.

If they're similar then they're not completely different ; )

At the end of the day though, they're big brightly coloured long sleeved shirts. If the intent was to keep the 60's aesthetic then fine, but against the backdrop of EVERYTHING ELSE they just look a bit silly.

IMO.

I guess this shows a bit of the diversity in taste when it comes to fandom, to many especially the ones who hate the JJprise and cant stand the Bridge the uniforms are one of the elements most seemed to say they liked.

For me those uniforms are what says TOS so anything else would be wrong...but thats my opinion and you have yours, and when it comes to opinions we can both be right and wrong

Re: New Uniforms for Into Darkness?

i for one like the j.j./tos uniforms. the homage to the original tos uniforms has helped me accept the reboot as something that is based on the legacy of trek.

actually, back in the day, i remember having a difficult time with the new uniform for the movies. they just didn't seem like the same crew in those grey unitards or red formals. it just seemed too different. plus the red ones made shatner look like he had no neck lol.

Pajamas? Since when is a crewneck shirt, black trousers and boots "pajamas"?

These are pajamas:

Re: New Uniforms for Into Darkness?

I think the uniforms are fine, my only complaint is the lack of rank insignia for ensigns which is silly.
Hopefully Chekhov is now a Lieutenant and head of security.

PS Your right about Shatner having no neck.

But the Enterprise wasn't radically changed. It's pretty much the same but with more detail outside and brighter lights and modern computers and graphics inside. The uniforms reflect that, IMO - updated versions of what they wore in the original series.
