At the heel portion of the shoe the outer sole C is depressed, and spaced apart from the sole B thereby forming an open transverse pocket E. In the'recesses D and E formed between the soles B and C, are spaced apart from each other at the outer edges of the shoe, a. number of springs 8 which are held in place by wire staples 9 clenched into the soles B and C; In the center of the shoe To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that LFRAN cnsoo CUomoTrA, a. subject of Italy, and resident of the city of New York, in the county of New York and State of New York, have invented certain new and usefulImprovements in Sporting- Shoes, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to sporting or athletic shoes, and in general to such as used for running and jumping' The obj ect of my invention is to provide a athlete in finishing and winning a heat.

A. further object of my invention is to provide a shoe that will minimize the jolt andl jar of the body of the athlete.

A still further. object of my invention is where the cushion may be easily adjust d and where the outer sole can be removed when worn out and replaced by a new one.

The. invention ,further consists of parts and combinations of parts all as more fully disclosed hereinafter and particularly pointed out in the claim.

Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, forming part of this specification in which similar characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the views, and in which- Figure 1 is a perspective view embodying my invention. Fig. 2 is an inverted plan Fig. 3 is a cross section taken on line 33 of Fig. 1.

To an ordinary sporting shoe A with its sole B is fastened an outer flexible sole G. Ilhis outer sole C is preferably made of one apart somewhat larger and stronger springs 10, also fastened to the soles Band C with clenched wire staples 11. The object of this is so as to sustain the largest portion of the weight in the center of the shoe. The springs along the outside edges of the pocket D are somewhat of a different length, that is, longer in the center than at the ends. The object of this is to give a more uniform cushion. The springs in the pocket E "are about of the same length. In case of any adjustment tothe spring cushion, it is only so as to give the required result. v

Having thus fully described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent:
