Footwear -- Test methods for heels -- Resistance to lateral impact
This standard was last reviewed and confirmed in 2018. Therefore this version remains current.
ISO 19953:2004 specifies a test method for determining the impact strength of the heels of ladies' shoes.
The result provides an assessment of the liability to failure under the occasional heavy blows received during wear.
While the test method is applicable to all types of high heels, of whatever construction, it is particularly useful for injection-moulded plastic heels which incorporate a steel dowel re-inforcement, giving information on the suitability of the dowel's hardness or softness. Heels which by virtue of their shape have a high lateral impact resistance do not normally required to be tested in this way.
