Good slip resistant tread patterns of outer-sole of military boots are vital to minimize the risk or severity of slip in combat and physical training situations. This study was aimed at how plastic failure of soil mass develops between the boot outer-sole with cleats and soft soil surfaces, in contrast with the problem between hard surfaces outer-sole of boot which can be simply modelled using Coulomb-friction representation.
