SHOE BOTTOM.

Application filed July 19,

The term shoe oecuring in the specification and in the claims is to be interpreted to include the term boot. I My invention relates to shoes such as of the well known Goodyear welt and McKay types and more particularly to the 11111-613 bottoms thereof.

In the manufacture of a shoe of this character the inner plane face of the 1nso le 1 is forced lower than its peripheral margin portion and this defective condition is aggravated under the effect of wear and is especially objectionable at the forepart as then the peripheral margin portion of the 1n- ,sole irritates the foot from undue contact therewith.

forepart inner bottom of a welt shoe could be improved by providing a felt lnsole and a sock-lining preferably of sheep-skin and permanently attached to the insole and preferably of a dimension extending withln a substantial distance of the peripheral margin of the insole and preferably also a forepart filler, preferably of firm felt, and of a dimension extending within a substantial distance of the peripheral margin of the insole and adapted to be applied underneath the sock-lining to thereby bring about in conjunction with the sock-lining a protuberance at the inner plane face of the shoe bottom forepart preferably projecting slightly above the peripheral margin portion of the insole. I

In view of eliminating in a shoe of the character described the objections noted and in view also of relieving the foot in a better manner than heretofore from undue contact with the peripheral margin portion of the insole, my present invention has for objective the provision in the bottom of a shoe of the character described of a felt insole and of a sock-lining preferably of sheep skin permanently attached tothe insole; and of a forepart filler, invariably of a dimension extending within a substantial distance of the peripheral margin of the insole and adapted to be applied between the insole and the sock-lining to form, in conjunction with the sock-lining, a protuberance projecting aboiie the peripheral margin portion of the 11150 e.

1927. Serial No. 206,886.

As shownin the drawings:

Fig. 1, is a plan view or a Welt shoe felt insole.

Fig. 2, is a plan view of a sheep-skin leather sock-lining.

Fig. 3, is a sectional view taken on line 33 Fig. 2.

Fig. 4, is a plan view of the welt shoe felt insole and of the calf-skin leather sock-lining permanently attached thereto and showing also a felt forepart filler in dotted lines. Fig. 5, is a plan view of the felt-forepart Fig. 6 is a cross-section through the forepart of a welt shoe of the well known Goodyear type incorporating my invention. Experiments have demonstrated that the Referring further to the drawings:

1, shows a welt shoe felt insole, which is, preferably, of about three sixteenths of an inch thick and which is made, preferably also in accordance with the well known Gem processfelt insole and reinforcing canvas cemented together. The sock-lining 2, is, preferably, of sheep-skin and is skived at its peripheral margin as shown at 3, and as still more clearly shown in Fig. 3. I, preferably, attach the sock-lining to the insole by the stitches 4, at the skived edge portion 3. Thereafter I make an incision 5, shown in Fig. 4, through the sock-lining back of the ball line portion of the insole and I insert between the insole and the socklining the forepart filler 6, shown in Fig. 5, which is about one sixteenth of an inch thick, shown by dotted lines 7, Fig. 4. As shown by dotted line in Fig. 5, the forepart felt' filler 6, is skived at 8 (Figs. 5 and 6) around its peripheral margin; and as shown in Fig. 6, the inner plane face of the shoe bottom within a substantial distance of the peripheral margin of the insole is advisedly on a higher plane than the peripheral margin portion of the insole.

It is within the spirit of my invention to permanently unite by stitches or otherwise the forepart filler to the insole and then apply the sock-lining to the felt insole and permanently attach the same thereto.

A very thick sock-lining of a dimension extending within a substantial distance of the peripheral margin of the insole forepart and permanently attach to the felt insole may, by itself, provide for a proper protuberance, as aimed at by my present invention. The appended claims, whenever the context so permits, are to be interpreted in that sense to give effect to my invention and this patent.

Having thus explained the nature of my invention and shown the same in the best form now known to me, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent of the United States is: 1. In the bottom of a shoe of the character described, a felt insole, a sock-lining permanently attached to the felt insole and a fore part felt filler having its margin extending within a substantial distance of the peripheralmargin of the felt insole and applied between the felt insole and the sock-lining to form,'in conjunction with the sock-lining, a

protuberance projecting above the peripheral margin portion of the felt insole.

2. In the bottom of a shoe of the character described, a felt insole, a sock-lining permanently attached to the felt insole and a forepartfiller having its margin extending within a substantial distance of the peripheral margin of the felt insole and applied between the felt insole and the sock-lining to form, in conjunction with the sock-lining, a protuberance projecting above the peripheral margin portion of the felt insole.

3. In the bottom of a shoe of the character described, a felt insole, a sock-lining permanently attached to the forepart of the felt insole and a protuberance at the inner plane face of the forepart of the felt insole extending within a substantial distance of the peripheral margin of the felt insole and projecting above the peripheral margin portion of.

the felt insole. a

4. In the bottom of a shoe of the character described, a felt insole, a sock-lining having its margin extending within a substantial distance of the peripheral margin of the felt insole and permanently attached to the felt insole and a protuberance at the inner plane face of the forepart of the felt insole extending Within a substantial distance of the peripheral margin of the felt insole and projecting above the peripheral margin portion of the felt insole.

In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification. I
