(With the foregoing and other objects in view which will appear as the description proceeds, the invention resides in the combination and arrangement of parts and in lthe details of construction hereinafter described and claimed, it beingl understood that changes in the precise embodiment of the invention herein disclosed, may be made within the scope of what is claimed, without departing from the spirit of the invention.
Referring to the drawing:
Figure l is an. elevational view of a shoe 'the same being" partly broken away to illustrate the invention as applied.
