FRANK KARCSONYI, OF YONKERS, NEW YORK, ASSIGNOR 0F ONE-THIRD TO GERGELY BLGA, OF HASTINGS-UPON-HUDSON. NEW YORK.
SPRING-HEEL FOR SHOES.
To @ZZ whom it may concern Be it known that I, FRANK KARCSONYI,
a subject of the King of Hungary, residing at Yonkers, in the county' of Westchester and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Spring-*Heels for Shoes, lowing is a specification.
rlhis invention relates to certain new and useful improvements in spring heels for shoes.
An object of the invention aims to relieve the strain and jars on the heel of the foot by providing a spring heel that will absorb such shocks.
A further object of the invention is to provide a spring heel especially adapted for army shoes where the wearer is subjected to excessive walking, the heel being uniformly cushioned to evenly distribute the wear.
With the above and other objects in view which will appear as the nature of the invention is better understood, the same consists in the novel construction, combination and arrangement of parts to be hereinafter more fully described and then claimed, reference being had to the accompanying drawing by like characters throughout the several views and wherein Figure l is a perspective view of a shoe embodying my invention. Fig.` 2 is an enlarged longitudinal sectional view of the heel illustrating the manner of cushioning the same. Fig. 3 is a horizontal sectional view of the heel, and, Fig. 4 is a sectional view of a portion of the `heel illustrating a manner of guiding' the telescoping sections.
Referring more particularly to the drawing accompanying this application, the reference letter S designates the shoe provided with the heel H. The heel H is provided with an extreme upper lift l0 and 11 while the intermediate sections are formed of metallic telescoping members suitably secured to the leather lifts. An inverted cup-shaped member 12 is secured t0 the upper lift 10 by fastening screws 13 and to be received within the cup-shaped member 12 is the upper telescoping section 14. and secured thereto by suitable fastening means as shown at 15. A plate 16 is received within the upper telescoping section 14 and retained therein by the fastening means 17 and dependino` from said plate 16 are the cylindrical members `18 open at their of which the fol` and lower leather i Patented J une 9, 1914. Serial No. 812,452.
lower ends. A transverse pin 19 extends across the lower end of the cylindrical members 1S for purposes to be hereinafterdescribed. Secured to the lower lift 11 by the fastening members 20 is the cup-shaped member 21 which is adapted to have a telescopic connection with the member 14:. Projecting upwardly from the cup member 21 are tubular members 22 of a diameter less than the cylindrical members 18 to provide for their reception therein. The tubular members 22 are provided with oppositelydisposed longitudinal slots 23 and disposed within said slots are the pins 19 carried by the cylindrical members 18. Mounted on the upper ends of each of the tubular members 22 are the disk members 22', each of said disk members supporting a coil spring 24 cal members 1S, engaging at its upper end the plate 1G and at its lower end. the disk members 22.
The parts above described will be effectively guided in their several movements, but to insure such guiding movement, means are provided as shown in Figpet, which consists of an angle plate 25 secured to one of the cylindrical members 18 as at 26 while its upper end is secured as at 27 to the plate 1G. rlhe lower end of the angle member 25 is provided with an opening in which is received a pin 28 carried by the lower cupshaped member 21.
In operation, the member 14 and cylindrical members 1.8 are moved in a downward direction which compresses the spring 24v and permits the members 14 and 21 to telescope. Vhen pressure is relieved on the upper lift 1.0, the spring 24C exerts itself and brings the telescoping sections to their normal position as shown in Fig. 1.
l/Vhile I have shown and described the preferred embodiment of my invention, I do not wish to confine myself thereto as various forms, modifications, and arrangements of `the parts may be had Without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention as claimed.
What is claimed as new is :-n
1. A spring heel for shoes, comprising an upper and a lower lift, an inverted cupsliaped member depending from the upper lift, a cup-shaped member end fitting within said depending member, a
compression disposed within the cylindri` having its upper plate within said depending member, cylin- Y extending vdrical members depending from said plate, a cup-shaped member secured to the lower lift ofthe heel, vertically slotted tubularA members projecting from the lower cup-shaped member', andtelescopically engaging within said cylindrical members, disks on said `tubular members, coil springs supported between said disks, and Vsaid plate,v and pins and movable in the slots of said tubular members.V p Y 1 2. ln a spring heel, the combination with two telescopically engagingl sections, one having depending cylindrical members, and

the other provided with upwardly projecting tubular members, of"verticalflydisposed coil-springs u supported `between the Vvtwo members, and guiding means comprising an angle 'bracket secured to one of said teleand a vertically-disposed guide pin secured to the other member and extending through an arm of said bracket.`
