What we do

Shoe prints and footwear mark comparison

Footwear mark

Footwear marks are commonly encountered at crime scenes and if discovered and suitably preserved they may be compared to the shoes recovered from the suspected perpetrator/s of a particular crime. The evidential significance of such comparisons will depend on a number of factors including the type of shoes or boots involved and how often they had been worn previously and by whom. With footwear matching a very complex science the evidential significance of the results of such comparisons by the prosecution should be re-evaluated by an independent forensic scientist.
