Therefore, the present study expounds an analysis methodology to achieve design criteria to develop high quality futsal shoes. This task is carried out attending users’ mind; analysing the game characteristics and proving the design solutions existing in the market. The methodological development is based on the analysis of footwear arising from mechanical, biomechanical, sport performance and comfort criteria.
