    Abstract

    It has previously been speculated that the occurrence and severity of lateral ankle sprain injuries is linked to excessive shoe-surface friction [1], [2]. Especially the lateral parts of the shoe outsole are suggested to play an important external
    role in this scenario, but have never been quantified in a systematic manner. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to investigate the variation of friction of indoor sport shoes with foot orientation and compare it to the traditional
    forefoot traction test.
