Good appearance is needed to give a good impression. The professionalism of company sometimes is measured subjectively by the appearance of employee. Female employee wears a shoe with heel to give more confidence on her appearance. It is not easy for female prospective employee to walk with that kind of shoe. Generally they are first graduate and occasionally wearing a shoe with heel in their activity. The purpose of research is to find an ideal shoe for female prospective employee. Black box method is used in this research. Four models of shoe are wornalternatelyby 2 groups of BMI(16.0-18.5, 18.6-21.0). The effects aredelta heart pulse (kdj) and travel time (wt), 72 objects are measured during walking. The result is tested by3 ways ANOVA andthe effect is discussed.T test is used to find the ideal shoe.
