    Withdrawn Rationale:

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee F13 on Pedestrian/Walkway Safety and Footwear, this test method was withdrawn in June 2008 and replaced by Test Method F 2232 on Determining the Longitudinal Load Required to Detach High Heels from Footwear.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the determination of heel attachment strength on women's and misses' shoes through application of a static load to the heel. Shoe heels may be made of various materials, including wood, plastic, leather, or rubber. The heels may be attached to the shoe body with nails, screws, staples, cement, or a combination of these.

    1.2 This test method is applicable for testing heel heights 1 1/2 in. (38 mm) and higher. (Heel heights are manufactured in 1/8-in. increments.) This testing is applicable for front or back of heel.
