The shoes put emphasis on calf strength and prevent the player from driving the heel downwards instead of using the natural resilience of the foot. A compression spring in the ball area of the shoe stores energy when the athlete plants the foot for the jump, and during the propulsion part of the movement transfers energy back to both ball and heel through a patented embedded bar in the shoe’s sole. Players do report improvements in jumping height, but those improvements linger even when athletes shift to other shoes.

Item Type:ArticleItem Status:Live ArchiveAbstractThis paper presents a systematic literature review of individual level targets (or foci) of identification, that is, the bases by which one derives a sense of self as a unique being in the context of work. We reviewed 253 articles from over 30 top management journals between 2005 and 2016. In examining foci types, definitions, underpinning theoretical and philosophical assumptions, we catalogue nine categories of individual level identification foci (manager, leader, follower, team, organization, occupation specific, professional, career and work), finding a dominance of functionalist meta theoretical orientations (comprising over half the sample, with interpretivist approaches comprising about a third of studies).

The framework includes various steps, such as image registration and segmentation, extraction of features, statistical analysis and classification models.
