More Description

Understanding footwear design and manufacture is vital for improving the functionality, aesthetics and marketability of a product. Dr. Ameersing Luximon and a team of contributors provide a comprehensive review of footwear production and design and explore how these processes are used across a variety of application areas. Part one, an introductory section, reviews the fundamentals of footwear anatomy: chapters discuss the anatomy of the human foot, biomechanics and gait, foot models and measurements, the development of the foot in childhood and adolescence, and foot problems and their implications for footwear design. Part two examines footwear design including the development of shoe design, foot sketch templates, and footwear drawing templates. Aspects of footwear manufacture are highlighted in part three, including the design, manufacture, and sizing and grading of shoe lasts. Further chapters focus on the footwear business, advertising, and the environmental impact of footwear manufacture. The concluding section explores the design and manufacture of footwear for specific applications and includes chapters on footwear for cold weather, textiles and other materials used in the production of protective military and orthopedic footwear, and design issues in geriatric footwear.
