Currently there is not an anthropometric foot database for Colombian military population. Due to this fact, health problems with sizing of combat boots have been found. Inadequate footwear causes different epidemiological feet diseases and deformations. A Foto Scan 3D manufactured by Precision 3D (United Kingdom), was used to acquire digital models from 75 Colombian soldiers. Fifteen anthropometric measurements were extracted from each foot using two programs: the measurement tool from the Foto Scan software and Rhinoceros 4.0. Results from this process were all the statistical values and percentiles of the anthropometric measurements.
