DETAGHABLE WEARING-PLATE FOR SHOES.
Specification of Letters Patent. Patented Blair 26, 1918.
Application filed October 28, 1915. Serial No. 58,430.
' To all whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, COLBERT G. HAY- HURS'I, a citizen of the United States, residing at Richville, in the county of Ottertail and State of Minnesota, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Detachable Wearing-Plates for Shoes, of which the following is aspecification. I
An objectof thepresent invention is to provide a new and improved reinforcing device especially designed foruse in connection with shoe soles of various characters and improved means for facilitating the attachment of the device to the shoe sole that will eliminate the useof all detachable fastoning members and clamps.
Another object of my invention is to provide an improved reinforcing device, or sole armor, of such'construction whereby it may be quickly placed in an advantageous position upon the shoe sole and held against either lateral or longitudinal displacement, and may be quickly removed therefrom should occasion requlre.
A further object of myinvention is to provide a new and improved metallic sole to be used in connection with shoes of different types. for the purpose of providing reinforcement for the original sole by acting in the capacity of a wear plate and thus obviate the quickly wearing out of the original sole which now usually occurs. A still further object of, my invention is to provide an improved device of the type in question that is extremely simple in construction, strong and durable, and highly practical from both the standpoint of the manufacturer and the user; and which, it is believed, may be manufactured at a minimum cost.
Various other objects and advantages will become apparent during the continuance of the following description.
These objects are accomplished by such means as are shown in their preferred form in the accompanying drawings, described in the following specification and then more specifically pointed out in the appended Cla m In the accompanying drawings wherein like characters designate like parts throughout the several views;
Figure 1 is a view in bottom plan of an ordinary shoe sole showing my invention in operative relation therewith.
' Fig. 2 is a view in top plan of my vimproved detachable sole or wear plate.
Fig. 3 is a longitudinal sectional view of the wear plate taken on-line 33'of Fig. 2.
In the drawings the numeral 10 designates a portion of an ordinary shoe sole in con nection with which my invention, in its present embodiment, has been shown. It will be understood of course that my invention is not limited to use in connection with any specific form of shoe or shoe sole and that my invention is readily applicable to the a comparatively light and thin metal when.
being used ID COIIIIBCtlOIIWltlI ladies shoes and the dress shoes of men, and of a comparatively thick metal when designed for use upon workmens shoes.
The device of my invention consists of a wear plate 11 that may be formed in some respects of an outline similar to the outline of the shoe sole in connection with which it is used; although this latter is not essential. At its ends the plate 11 is formed into slightly constricted extensions 12 and 13 respectively- The extension 12 extends in a plane approximately the same as the plane of the general extent of the plate 11 while the extension 13 is upturned at its free end as at 14 and provided with an inwardly projecting cusp 15. y
Adjacent the extensions 12 and 13 respectivel the plate 11 is provided with through openings 16 and 17 which merge into somewhat smaller cut-outs 18 an'd19. These cutouts are preferably. arranged forwardly and rearwardly respectivelyto each of the open ings such as clearly shown in Fig. 2 of the drawings. a a y From the foregoing it willbe appreciated thatthe plate 11, extensions 12 and 13 and the cusp 15 may be stamped from. a.- single sheet of material in an integral piece. This not only decreases the cost of manufacture of the device to an appreciable extent. but also greatly adds to the utility of the device since it may be handled by the operator with greater ease and afliired to the sole of the shoe without the use of any detachable members or clamps.
The sole in connection with which my in vention is to be used is provided with headed studs 20 and 21 which are arranged adjacent the rear and forward ends thereof in the manner shown in F ig; 1. These studs are preferably spaced apart a distance corresponding with the distance between the openings 16 and 17 of the wear plate so that when the wear plate is first positioned upon the sole they will pass readily through the openings.-
The lateral edges and rear edge of the plate are crimped along the line 22, so that said lateral and rear edges are slightly turnedupward so as to bear against the shoe sole. By this arrangement, it will be seen that an air space is provided between the shoe sole and the wear plate adjacent to the crimp line 22. This air space renders the device more nearly noiseless when in use, gives the plate the appearance of more snugly fitting against the shoe sole, and slightly indents the shoe sole where the'ex treme edge of the plate bears thereagainst, so as to assist the screws 20 and 21 and the cusp 15 in preventing accidental removal of the plate from the shoe sole.
, In placing the wear plate 11 upon the sole the sole is first bent so that the studs 20 and 21 enter the openings 16 and 17 respectively by reason of the fact that the heads of the studs will not pass through the cut-outs 18 and 19, Consequently it will be seen that when the sole is permitted to deflex, the studs 20 and. 21 will be moved into the cutouts 18 and 19 respectively and the cusp will be drawn into biting engagement with the forward face thereof. The biting of the cusp 15 into the shoe sole in this manner pre eludes the possibility of the accidental move ment of the plate 11 in a forward direction, while further inward movement of the plate is} prevented by the upturned portion Lt. Moreover the studs acting in conjunction with the cusp, positively and effectually ree tain the plate in a secure position. The cutouts l8, and 19 form a. slight binding action upon theshanlr of the studs and together with the heads of the studs serve to retain the plate in snug fitting engagement with the under face of the shoe sole.
By reason of the construction above set forth it will be noted that the rear stud 20 will move slightly within the cut out 18 during the bending of the sole such as secure when walking thus eliminating the cramping action which would occur in the event that this slight play were not permitted. Furthermore it is pointed out that by reason of the extensien 12 extending some distance upon the arch portion of the sole greater resiliency is imparted to; the sole and the arch portion thereof which will tend to greatly increase the efficiency of the shoe.
It is further pointed out that the heads of the studs 20 and 21 form suitable antislipping devices which will tend to increase the efficiency of the invention, in the event that it is used in snowy weather, when the streets are, as a general rule, extremely slippery. Furthermore these studs form antislipping devices irrespective of whether the wear plate isfused or not, it being contain plated to equip the shoe sole with the studs so that the wear plate may be attached only when desired;
From the foregoing it is believed that the advantages and novel features of my invention will be readily understood and other 7 fore further detailed description is deemed unnecessary; I
In reducing my invention to practice I find that the form referred to-herein as the most practical and preferred embodiment is the most efficient, but realizing that certain conditions will necessarily vary in concurrence with the adoption of my device, I desire to emphasize the fact that varirius minor changes in the details of construction and in the proportion of parts may be resorted ta when required without sacrificing any ofthe advantages of my invention as defined in the appended claims.
Having thus fully described my invention,
what I claim as new anddesire tosecure by 7 further provided with cut outs communicat ing with saidopenings of less diameter than said openingsfor receivin'gsa-id studs u on the defiecture of the sole, an extension formed at the forward end of said plate, said last mentioned extension being upturned to engage'ivith the front edge of shoe sole to further prevent longitudinal movement of said plate in one direction, and a cusp carried by said last mentioned xtension to be forcedinto said shoe sole, as and for the" purpose specified.
2. The combination with a shoesole, of a headed and in the setters or said sele aaa jacent to the toe thereof, a headed the bottom of said sole adjacent to the arch engage with said headed studs for retaining 10 portion thereof, a Wear plate of a width said plate on said shoe sole.
less than but nearly as great as that of the In testimony whereof I aflix my signature shoe solei to wllliclgl itis to bei fitted, agd havin presence of two witnesses.
ing its atera e ges turne n'pwar so as to normally bear againstthe under side of COLBERT HAYHURST said sole, said Wear plate being apertured Witnesses: V substantially midway between said lateral W. D. HOWARD,
' edges in such manner that it is adapted to I R. M. FREEMAN.
