sLIPrEB Application led. .Tan-nary 28, 1929. Serial No. 335,426.

My invention relates to a new and improved slipper. l

One of the objects of my invention is to provide a slipper of the turn-type having a heelless outer sole provided with an inner heell or heel-lift made of felt or otherv materia Another object of my invention is to provide a slipper of this type which shall be comm fortable and which shall have a neat appearance.

Other objects of my invention will lbe set forth in the following description and drawings which illustrates a preferred embodiment thereof, it being understood that the above general statement of the objects of my invention is intended merely to generally explain the same and not to limit itin any manner.

n Fig. 1 is a perspective view of the improved slipper. F F1g. 2 is a sectional view on the line 2-2 of Fig. 3 is a top view of the rear part of the outer sole.

Fig. 4 is a sectional view on the line 4-4 of Fig. 3.

Theviiat outer sole 2 is made of suitable flexible material, such as leather. As shown i in Figs. 3 and 4, it is provided with a continuous eripheral recess 8 of angular shape. It is a so providedl with a continuous inclined channel 9. The upper 1 of the slipper is made of suitable material, the edges of which are bent under, so that said edges can fit in the front part of the angular recess 8. The inner sole comprises a plurality of layers 7 made of cardboard or other suitable material, and

havingf a covering 3 made of suitable fabric.

l This covering 3 has its bottom edges bent inwardly, and these bottom edges are glued into position. vThe rear of the slipper has an inclined inner heel or heel-lift 6 made of a block of felt or other suitable material. The front edge of the inner heel is chamfered. The in- -ner heel 6 is provided with a cover 4. The

edges of the cover 4 fit in the recess 8, said edges being inwardly and upwardly turned, as shown in Fig. 2. Stitches 10 hold the heel covering 4 in position. The inclined slot 9 renders it'possible for a curved needle to be used in forming the stitches 10. Said stitches are located in the bottom of channel 9. The upper and inwardly turned edges of the heel covering 4 (which is made of any suitable fabric) may be glued to the inner heel 6 and to the adjacent inwardly turned edges of the in-` ner sole covering 3.

It is obvious that the device has a neat appearance, and that the inner heel 6 is firmly held in position so that it cannot shift.

I have shown a preferred embodiment of my invention, but it is clear that numerous changes and omissions can be made without departing from the spirit of my invention.
