Abstract:

A series of footwear uppers and outsole concepts are presented to provide expedient donning and doffing and aid in improving traction effectiveness for the foot soldier. Manufacturing processes and material use relative to the concepts are studied and prototype models constructed which indicate compatibility with production requirements and utilization. Three concepts were then selected and final design versions conceived and constructed. These models incorporate one version of a quick closure upper with three different versions of traction aided molded outsoles.
