This paper presents the interdisciplinary study of a combined mechanism on the interactions between ground and foot using bioengineering and geotechnical engineering. A new mechanism of advanced technology shoes, which can be made safe with a comfortable gait on both soft and hard ground, were developed combining the mechanism of conical top foundation. The experimental tests were carried out to verify the developed shoes. The prototype shoes and test grounds were designed and produced to perform the tests. The general existing shoes and advanced technology shoes were used to measure the pressures re-acting the sole during the tests by a special measurement system. The results clearly showed that the pressures acting on the sole of advanced technology shoes were distributed uniformly compared with that of the existing shoes, and were in good agreement with theoretical approach of the new mechanism. Therefore, the advanced technology shoes could allow a safe gait ergonomically by a new mechanism on any ground type. The load transfer could occur by the interaction between ground and shoes. In addition, these results are expected to be useful for the development of an interdisciplinary study of a new mechanism in the future.
