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