I Specification of Letters Patent. Patented 1 18 1913' Application med Noveinber 1, 1912. Serial in. 729,102.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, THEODORE Dic son, a citizen of the United States, residing. at Mendota,in "the countyof Lewis and State of Washington, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Shoe-Protectors, of 'which the following is a specification, reference being had therein to the accompanyingdrawing. I,

This invention relates to protective .de-- vices for shoes and has special reference to a device for protecting shoes worn by section andl'trackmeh when doing railroad work. I

The principal object of the invention is of protector for such shoes.

A second object of the invention is to provide a structure of the character described made from a single piece of sheet steel.

With the above and other objects in view as will be hereinafter apparent, the invention consists in general of certain novel constructions, combinations and arrangements of parts as will be hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying, drawings, and specifically claimed.

In the accompanying drawings like charactersof reference indicate like parts .in'the several" views, and "Figure 1' is a view of a,

'shoe'taken from the left side of the right shoe. Fig. 2 is a similar view showing the opposite side. of the shoe. Fig.3 is a detail perspective showing" the device removed from the shoe. Fig. 4 a View of the blank from. which thedvi In constructingthe'device formingthe subject of this invention there is PIOVlClQd a blank havinga body portion 10.wh1ch is provided at one end with a lateral'extension lldefinedfrom the body portion by means of a fold line 12. At the other end a similar extension 13 is provided which is defined from the body by afold line 14 but.

it is to noted that the extension 13 is of a greater width than the body. By rea-' son of. this the extension -13 overhangs the the extension 15 the extensions 11 body at one side as can be seen by reference to Fig.: 4:. .On the side of the body. 10 over which the extension 13 overhangs there is provided a lateral extension 15 defined from the body by a fold line 16 and from the extension 13 by a slit 17f The extension 11. 1s provlded with slots 18 while the exten sion 13 is provided with a pair of spaced slots 19. It is further to be noted that the extension 11 and the'extension- 13 have their corners cut off so that they are roughly semi-octagonal in outline. In folding this blank the two extensions 11 and 13 are bent upward while the extension 15 is bent downward. ;In use the body 10 1i'es underneath the sole of the shoe at the shank portion. abuts against the heel and and 13 lie against the sides .of the shoe, the larger extension being on the innerside of the foot,

This device is held upon the footby means of suitable straps 20 and when adjusted, as shown in, Figs;- 1 and 2, braces the ankle and protects the side of the foot, the largerextension coming back over a portion of the heel as clearly shown in Fig. 1.

There has thus been provided a simple and efficient-device of the kind described,

and for the purpose specified.

Having thus described the invention, what is claimed as new, 'is:- I

A blank for shoe protectors consisting of .a'single piece of sheet metal comprising-a rectangular bodv portion,"semi-octagonal extensions at each end of the .body portion defined therefrom by fold lines, one of said extensions overhanging one edge of the body', and a lateral extension extending from said edge and defined from the body by a fold line and from the overhanging extension by a slit. Y.
