Mechanical test devices have previously been used to investigate the influence of shoe and surface parameters on traction forces and moments at the studded shoe-surface interface, often using commercial footwear on natural and artificial sport surfaces [1] and [2]. In such studies trends between traction parameters and stud (cleat) parameters (stud length, shape and configuration) have been observed. However, the literature shows conflicting relationships regarding even the qualitative influence of a particular stud parameter's influence on traction. This can be attributed to multiple parameters being varied from test to test when commercial shoes are used. Barry and Milburn [3] modified their traction rig in order to test a variety of studs at different positions, providing insight into which stud positions have the most influence on tractive forces and moments
