The article presents a method of designing templates for modelling shoe lasts, according to specific anthropometrical dimensions of a subject's foot, employed as military personnel. The subject's peculiarity lies in the type of professional activity that he is carrying out; the lower limbs have a much greater risk of injury and there is the need to prevent such problems by using special footwear, which will not restrict the conduct of his military activities. The design of last's templates consists in creating a geometrical construction based on the dimensional characteristics of the subject's feet. Using software such as Delcam Engineer and Last Maker new techniques for modelling shoe lasts were developed. The advantages of the presented method are represented by the decreased time of last's design and the accuracy of the results. Applying this method to a larger scale enables its development and allows footwear manufacturers to achieve a diverse range of products, faster and at lower costs than current possibilities.
