Footwear -- Test methods for heels -- Fatigue resistance
This standard was last reviewed and confirmed in 2018. Therefore this version remains current.
ISO 19956:2004 specifies a test method for determining the ability of heels of ladies' shoes to withstand the repeated small impacts imposed by normal walking. Although intended primarily for plastic heels, the procedure is also usable for testing steel heel dowels on their own.
While the test method is applicable to all types of high heels of any construction, it is particularly useful for injection-moulded plastic heels that incorporate a steel dowel reinforcement.
