This study investigated the forefoot loading character under flexible sole condition while performing landing maneuver. Twenty healthy male volunteers have participated in the test. The insole and outsole loading were measured at the same time. The results of this study shown that the forefoot impact loading could be effectively relieved through the footwear during landing movement. The peak pressure value in the outsole was much higher than the barefoot, where the highest value in the first metatarsal of outsole was 63.6% higher than barefoot condition. Peak pressure of the third metatarsal of insole reduced the most, this has decreased about 51.2% of the barefoot experienced.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
