During a 40-minute futsal match, there are 4x times the number of touches and goals and 2x times as many shots compared to a traditional soccer match. These stats are indicative of a game that requires players to adapt quickly and play even faster.

Each futsal-specific movement has a unique plantar pressure distribution. As athletes flow from one movement to another, their traction needs to change. Using parametric design, we can successfully apply data from movement studies to hone traction patterns that better suit specific sports, surfaces, and play styles. Altering the tread geometry on a 3D modeled outsole using Blender to UV map the movement-specific zones on the outsole.
