A staple 20 of cylindrical body construction is provided with a flanged extremity 21 and has formed therein a central threaded opening 22.

As clearly shown in the accompanying drawing, the staple 20 is inserted in an aperture formed in the under portion 23 of a shoe 24, the flanged portion 21 is positioned innermost. The extremmentioned flanged porof the the serrated extremities 18 and 19 of the attaching plate '10 so as to prevent the loss or misplacement of the said attaching screw for the purpose of securely holding the heel and sole in place on the under portion of the shoe.
