PIECED OUTER SOLE.

APPUCATION man JULY 2l 19m.

Ls@ Patented Apr.20,1915.

`the part 14, the tongue being made in a separate piece and formed with a which is tted in a recess in the terminal16. 'l Y Y As shown by Figs. 6, 7 nal, designated by 16a, pieces or sectionsv having squarely abutting meeting edges and connected by staples 19.

Fig. 8 shows each section of the pieced terminaly provided with a tongue 21e, these tongues being engaged with recesses formed' in therportion 14. The continuous abutting edges of the terminal and body and the means employed contact with each other render the terminal, in eii'ect, an integral part of the body, the terminal being free from'liability to swing independently and to beseparated :from the body when the sole is being handled. In the embodiment of the invention here shown the interlocked recesses and projections prevent edgewise movements of the terminal relatively to the body, While the relatively stiii' connecting members 19 prevent sidewise movements or the terminal relatively tothe body and coperatewith said projections and recesses in preventingindependent edgef wise movements of the terminal,'and may be used independently of the projections and recesses as shown by Fig. 6.

Hav-ing described my invention, I claim: 1. A pieced outer sole composed of a onepiece body having a fore portion, a shank portion, and an incomplete heel seat por"u tion, a terminal Jforming a complemental heel seat portion attached to the body, the said body and terminal havingcontinuous elongated abutting edges which meet Within the area of the heel seat and form a joint extending continuously across the sole and arranged to be covered by the heel of the shoe of which the sole forms a part, -and means for positively holding said abutting edges in contact with each other, to prevent and 8, the termiedgewise and sidewise movements of the portion 21d mayv be made of I-piece body for holding said edges in- 4intimate.

terminal relatively to the body, the'v sole formed by said body and terminal being adapted to be manipulated and treated as one part.

2. AA. pieced outer sole composed of a onehafving a fore portion, a shank portion, and an incomplete heel seat portion, a terminal forming a. complemented heel seat portion, the said body and terminal having continuous elongated abutting edges which meet. and form a joint Within the area of the heel seat and extending continuously across the sole,-and stili connecting members bridging said joint and engaged with the body and terminal to positively hold said abutting edges in contact with each other and prevent edgeuf'ise and sidewise movements of the terminal relatively to the body so that the sole formed thereby'is adapted to be manipulated Aand treated as one part.

3. A pieced outer sole composed of a onepiece body having a fore portion, a shank portion, and an lincomplete heel seat portion, a terminal forming a coxnplemental heel seat portion, the said body and terminal having continuous elongated abutting edges which meet and form a joint within l the area of the heel seat andl extending continuously across the sole, one of said edges having a recess and the other a projection fitting said recess whereby edgewise movement of the terminal relatively to the body is prevented, and stiff connecting members bridging said joint and engaged with the body and terminal toprevent both edgewise and sidewise movements of the terminal relatively to the body.

In'testimony whereof I have affixed my signature, in presence of-tivo witnesses.
