Foot shape measurement is a key technology to obtain foot shape and size data, which is crucial for footwear design, production, and the comfort and health of consumers wearing shoes. The purpose of this paper is to discuss the method and technique of foot shape measurement and its application in footwear design and comfort evaluation. Combined with the simple foot shape measuring device designed and developed by the author, a foot shape measuring device with simple structure design and its application in the process of shoe selection are discussed. Through the comparison of different measuring equipment and the analysis of the relationship between foot shape data and footwear design, it provides a useful reference and guidance for footwear industry.
