“Comfort and performance are considerations when selecting a shoe, but the ability of the shoe to protect the foot and ankle is even more important.”

Jeff Miller

NFL Executive Vice President of Player Health and Safety

The NFL, in partnership with the NFL Players Association, has developed this video that summarizes important information for football players as they choose their on-field shoes.

For the last eight years, bioengineering experts advising the NFL’s Musculoskeletal Committee have been collecting and analyzing scientific and medical data to provide information to clubs’ medical and equipment staffs so they can help players make informed choices about the shoes they wear.
