This dataset contains slip-test data from 57 adult participants in a study examining the relationship between shoe outsole tread wear and occurrences of slipping. Participants wore their own shoes in a test environment where they encountered an unexpected slip condition, with data recorded by embedded force plates. Measurements include the shoe worn region size, available coefficient of friction (ACOF), slip distance, slip outcome based on slip distance, slip outcome based on peak slip, peak fluid pressure, and whether the shoe was slip-resistant. The data package includes an Excel file of data, a Word document describing the spreadsheet's data structure, and a text README. Full methods and conclusions are available in the associated paper, which includes an open-access manuscript copy.
