This article aims to analyze the feet of a single subject regarding the footprints, the foot axis deviation angle, the hallux-valgus angle, the repartition of surfaces and impulses and also, the balance of the feet. The footprints were used to analyse the typology of the feet. It has been demonstrated that the right foot is different from the left foot in what concerns the foot axis angle, the hallux-valgus angle, the repartition of surface and impulse for each foot and also for the balance of the feet. A complete knowledge of the feet can be obtained; and then, solutions can be proposed and found. In this case the solutions were special insole for each foot. The next stage of the research will be focused on designing and rapid prototyping of personalized insoles for this particular subject.
