Abstract:

Presented herein is the second of a proposed multi-part review on footwear. This report deals mostly with the materials and their properties making up the layer or layers of footwear between the skin and the boot, i.e. socks and removable insoles and liners. Aspects of these elements of footwear are related to various military requirements, and as in the first part of the review, attention is drawn to the f act that in meeting these requirements, solutions conflict. A discussion on possible compromises follows, leading to the recommendation that in order to develop proper footwear for the military, a very carefully written statement of requirement is necessary.
