Footwear manufacturing is evolving from a labor-intensive activity to a knowledgebased manufacturing process. This is evident from the amount of new and breakthrough technologies that have been developed during the last decade covering a wide spectrum of applications in engineering, informatics, materials, information and communication technologies, etc. (CEC, 2009; Chituc et al., 2008; Pedrazzoli, 2009; Wong et al., 2006). Several efforts are being devoted to making shoe industry human-centered by developing new concepts for customizing or personalizing the final products (Azariadis and Papagiannis, 2010; Lee, 2006; Leng and Du, 2006; Luximon et al., 2003).
