Patented Mar. 7, 1922.
Application filed September 10, 1920. Serial No. 409,839.
To all whom it may concern. 1
Be it known that I, HARRY PATTEN, a Brit- -ish subject, residing at Station Bridge,
Chorlton-cum-Hardy, county of Lancaster, England, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Foot Supports, of
which the following is a specification.
The invention relates to improvements in foot supports desi ned to cause the wearer to tread truly in the centre of the sole and to correct any tendency of the wearer to tread over to one side of the boot or shoe.
It consists of a loose support shaped along one side approximately to the contour of the side of the boot or the side of the foot of the wearer and straight or approximately 'straight along the other side, and inclined from'the inner 'to the outer side, the shaped side being of sufficient thickness to raise the side of the foot the desired distance and the straight side as thin as possible not to form a ridge under the foot.
The invention will be fully described with reference to the accompanying drawings.
Fig. 1 is a perspective view of the fitting. Fig. 2 is a plan of same. Fig. 3 is a section on line a2-:v Fig. 1.
The support A is shaped along the side a to approximately the contour of the side of the boot or the side of the foot of the wearer, and the other side a is straight or approximately strai ht. The side a is formed of suflicient thlckness to raise the side of the foot the desired amount, and the side a is made as thin as possible sosupport A is thus wedge shape in cross section, as shown in Fig. 3, tapering from the slde a to the side a.
The support A is also tapered longitudinally at the ends b b so that there will be no'ridge where these ends meet the boot or shoe. The support may beheld in position .by pins passing through it into the boot or I as not to form a ridgeunder the foot. The
shaped along the outer side approximately to the contour of the boot or shoe and straight along the inner side which lies substantially along the longitudinal center of the shoe and inclined from the inner to the outer edge to raise the edge of the foot of the wearer.
In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand in presence of two subscribing wltnesses.
Witnesses J. OWDEN OBRIEN, Geo. H. OBRIEN.
