SHOE

Filed Sept. 24', 1952 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 I Inventor fim/Aa E, (7207 Patented May 30, I933 UNITED STATES AMALIE. a. JUST, or cLnvnLAnD, .oHIo

SHOE

Application filed September 24, 1932, Serial No. 634,769.

This invention relates to shoes, and consists in the provlsion of a strong durable shoe especially designed for rough usage and will serve admirably as a part of the footwear equipment of the soldier, hikers, and for others engaged in sport or other activities for which a strong durable yet elastic shoe is required.

In accordance with the present invention the shoe has the several parts thereof connected in a strong durable manner there being no stitching or sewing whatever in the making of the shoe.

The invention together with its numerous objects and advantages will be best understood from a study of the following description taken in connection with the accompanyin drawings wherein:

Figure 1 is a side elevational View of the shoe embodying the features of the present invention.

Figure 2 is a bottom plan view thereof.

Figure 3 is a transverse sectional view through a portion of theshoe sole and upper.

Figure 4 is a vertical sectional elevational view through the heel and counter of the shoe.

Figure 5 is a detail sectional view taken substantially on the line 5-5 of Figure 1.

Figure 6 is a perspective view of a metal sole plate.

Referring in detail to the drawings it will be seen that the shoe designated generally by to the conventional type of shoe, in that it r includes the sole 11, heel 6, toe 7, instep portion 8, counter 9 and ankle portion 12 which portion 12 atits front is open and provided with a gusset 12'. The purpose of the gusset 4 12', is, as is obvious, to facilitate the taking off or the putting on of the shoe.

In accordance with the present invention, instead of connecting the part 12 of the shoe upper with the parts 8 and 9 of said upper by sewing, said part 12 is connected with the parts 8 and 9 by rivets 13 as will be clear from a study of Figure 5.

The parts 7, 8, 9 and 12 forming the shoe upper are made of leather or other suitable material as is also the sole 11. The heel 6 may be made of leather,-wood, or any other i i suitable and desired material. 7

Also the parts 7, 8 and 9 of the shoe upper instead of being connected to thesole 11 by sewing, are connected to the sole 11 through the mediumof bolts 14 extending through the out-turned edge portion'of'the toe 7, instep 8, and counter 9, and'through the sole '11 as best shown in Figure 3. Nuts 15are engaged with the threads of the bolts 14 for 0 securing said parts assembled.

For the sole '11'there is also provided a plurality of diagonallydisposed relatively spaced tread plates 16 of metal and these plates 16 at their ends are secured in place through the medium of the-bolt and nut means 14, 15 in a manner apparent. {The diagonal plates1'6 have the shape shown being preferably oblong, and at the toe of the shoe there is provided an additional tread 7 plate 16a'which is of the shape shown and has an edge suitable to conform to the edge contour ofthe sole-11 at the toe of the shoe.

The plate 16ais of course secured in position by certain of the bolt-s14 and nuts 15.

For reinforcing the shank of the shoe sole there are provided metallic plate like strips 18 extending along the shank at opposite edges thereof and arranged between the heel and'the adjacent tread plate 16 as shown in 0 Figure 2, and those bolts 14 and nuts 15 securing the shank portion of the sole to the the reference character 10 is somewhat simllar parts 8 and 9 of the shoe upper also serve to secure theplates '18 in position. i

The heel 6 is reinforced through themediumof a metallic frame 17 thatin plan, is

of the .same' general shape-as the heel 6 and snugly receiving the heel as suggested in Figure 4. As will be clear from a study of Figures 2 and 4, frame 17 at its upper edge 0 is provlded with an inwardly directed flange 17a that is suitably apertured for accommodating those bolts 14; that serve to secure the counter part 9 of the shoe upper to the sole 11, whereby provision is made for securing t-heframe 17 and the heel part 6 in proper posltion. In this connection it will be noted that the block 6 fits snugly Within the frame 17 and as before mentioned may be made of wood, leather or other suitable material and is suitably provided with recesses for accommodating the nuts 15 associated with the last named bolts 14.

For contracting the ankle portion 12 of the shoe upper after the shoe has been placed on the foot, there are provided two or more conventional metallic clasps19 as shown.

From the foregoing it will be seen that I have devised a strong and durable shoe which will be found useful as apart of the equipment of a soldier, hiker, camper, woodman or others engaged in activities requiring a strong durable shoe. In this connection it will be also noted that the tread plates 16 are so spaced apart as not to interfere with the needed elasticity of the shoe sole.

Even thoughI have herein shown anddescribedthe preferredembodiment of the in vention, it is to be understood that the same is susceptible of further changes, modifications and improvements coming within the scope of the appended claims. I

Having thus; describedmy invention, what I claim as new is: V

1. A shoe including anrupper, a sole, and a heel; bolt and nut means securing the sole of the shoe tothe upper, said upper consisting of a toe part, instep part, counter part,

and ankle part, rivets securing the ankle .part to the instep and counter parts, and tread plates extending diagonally of the sole,

and certain of said bolt and nut means securing said tread plates in position, said tread plates being relatively spaced, and a reinforcing frame embracing the heel of the shoe.

2. A shoe and ankle part, rivets securing the ankle part to the instep and counter parts, and tread plates extending diagonally of the sole, and certain of said bolt and nut means securing said tread plates in position, said tread plates 1 being relatively spaced, and a reinforcing frame embracing the heel of the shoe, and the ankle portion of said upper being expansible, and metal olasps engaged with said ankle portion for contracting the latter.

In testimony whereof I affix my signature.
