Abstract: The design of winter footwear is an important element in protecting users and allowing for safer mobility. Important factors for the design of footwear include comfort, thermal protection, cost, and aesthetics. Two key aspects of winter footwear design that relate to universal design are slip resistance and usability. Results gleaned from the literature form strong starting points on which to develop guidelines for the design of winter footwear and anti-slip devices that do not yet exist.
