Aussie Rules Football Cleats

PROJECT TIMELINE 

7 months

Graduate Thesis Project

PROJECT CATEGORY

Footwear

Aussie Rules football, or Footy, is a unique sport that requires a specific set of physiological and athletic abilities to perform at the highest level. Currently, only two boot manufacturers offer boots designed for the sport, offering a single silhouette to cover the entire gamut of 18 positions. While numerous other football variants have distinctive boot lines based on positions, this trend has yet to be explored within the game of Footy.

This project explores the integration of additive manufacturing into cleated footwear to adapt traction, accuracy, and weight, based on three unique positions and their individual requirements

P1 RUCKMAN

The defensive giants on the pitch, these athletes average over 6’5 and are in constant aerial contests

P2 ROVER

The pacemakers, these players run the largest volume on the field to recover possession and direct traffic while using the most dynamic movement

P3 FORWARD

The primary scorers of the team, these players need pinpoint accuracy and a quick getaway to have a glimpse of goal to take a shot
