The design of shoe plays a vital role to improve the performance of football players in kicking action. The objective of this study is to quantify the velocity and force generated by different shoe designs during instep kicking. Six amateur football players from different field positions participated as subjects in this study. The experimental work was carried out using high speed cameras integrated with Qualysis Track Manager System. The results of biomechanical analysis revealed that P shoe design generated the highest velocity (14552.28 mm/s) and football shoe of N brand produced highest force of 1774.3775 N. This study concluded that shoe design is one of the key factors to determine the velocity and force in kicking action. For future work, this study suggests ergonomics analysis to improve the performance and satisfaction of the players.
