Foot Size and Shape - Improving Fit

Los Angeles, 28th October 2015
Boston, 30th October 2015

SATRA fitting and research specialists are hosting a number of events on the subject of ‘foot size and shape’, following their extensive investigations into global foot anthropometrics. SATRA members are offered the opportunity to attend this half-day dissemination to hear about the initial findings from the ongoing foot scanning project, and offer their feedback on how the project might develop.

SATRA has almost 100 years of footwear expertise and has performed many foot measurement surveys over the years to assess the shape of feet and develop guidelines for members on sizing, fitting and comfort. This latest project utilises 3-D scanning technology and is the largest investigation of its type that SATRA has undertaken.

The foot size and shape conference will explain the scope and extent of the three-year project and explain key findings on foot shape within the adult populations of the UK, the USA and China. It will include an investigation into the differences in foot shape between demographics and the implications for fit and comfort.
