Global Foot Dimensions

SATRA’s Global Foot Dimensions report is the culmination of a four-year research project utilising 3D scanning technology to capture and assess thousands of feet in different regions across the globe.

SATRA has performed a significant number of foot surveys periodically since its establishment in 1919, and provided numerous articles informing and assisting the industry on fitting and grading guidelines.

Over the period 2012-2016, SATRA conducted a substantial foot dimensions survey. The survey began as an exercise to determine the characteristics of modern feet in key geographical areas. The project was conducted in three global regions: UK, USA and China. These regions were chosen predominantly because many SATRA member companies are manufacturing products for these important markets.

The collated results of this most recent survey will be available in the form of a 300-page printed and bound report exclusively for SATRA members from September 2017.

SATRA’s Global Foot Dimensions report aims to provide a core understanding of modern foot shape and highlights some of the differences present between a number of demographics. It is hoped that the openness and systematic explanation of the subject matter will become a benchmark for the industry for years to come, enabling manufactures of footwear to offer a greater degree of fit and comfort to the end customer. The report disseminates a series of fundamental foot dimension statistics, including foot breadth, joint girth and instep girth, and aims to update the industry’s understanding of foot shape and sizing.
