The purpose of this study was to analyze the foot type by cluster analysis for footwear. The sample size for the study was 200 college womens between age 19 and 23 in Pusan urban area. There were measured 17 items of the foot for factor analysis and cluster analysis. The result was as follows : 1. 1'here were 9 items selected by factor analysis. 2.'rho cluster analysis of the foot must be analyzed by direct and indirect measurement indivisually. 3. The cluster analysis of the direct measurement ; Cluster 1 : 1'he foot length is all much the same to mean value of this age group and the items of width and circumference are relatively small to other clusters. Cluster 2 ; The foot length is relatively small to other clusters and the items of width and circumference are all much the same to mean value of this age group. Cluster 3 ; The foot sine Is relatively large to other clusters. 4. The cluster analysis of indirect measurement ; Cluster 1 ; The (cot print angle is high find Metatarso-Phalanx angle is transformed Cluster 2 ; The foot print angle is low and Melatarso-Phalanx angle is normal. Cluster 3 : Tho foot print angle Is middle and Metatarso-Phalanx angle is all the mush same to mean value of this age group. Cluster 4 . The foot print angle Is the most value and Metatarso-Phalanx angle is normal.
