ARCH SUPPORT Eric Lyss and Alberto F. Trevino,
Application July 24, 1933, Serial No. 681,930
Our invention relates to arch supports and more particularly to certain supports whereby pads or cushions can be detachably and interchangeably applied thereto, and also adjusted with relation to the arch supinsert piece for the shoe so that comfort to the foot of the user.
In order to explain our invention, we have i1- lustrated the same on the accompanying sheet of drawing which we will now describe.
Figure 1 is a top plan view of an arch support showing one embodiment of our invention applied thereto, shown in light broken lines on the under side thereof;
Figure 2 is a bottom plan view thereof, showing the insert pad or cushion;
Figure 3 is a cross sectional view taken on the line 3-3 of Fig. 1;
Figure 4.- is a partial longitudinal sectional 44 of Fig. 1;
Figure 5 is a fragmentary top plan view of an arch support showing our adjustable pad or cushion; and
Figure 6 is a longitudinal sectional view taken on line 6-6 of Fig. 5.
Referring now in detail to the drawing, we will described our invention as illustrated for explanatory purposes, referring first to Figs. 1 to 4 inclusive.
An arch support is shown, designated I 0, which may be of any form desired, and these are usually composed of an inner rubber or cushion body H, with a leather or other suitable covering 5 2.
On the underside of this support we have shown a socket l3, of triangular shape in the present embodiment, with its edges undercut, as at It,
and seen in the sectional view in Fig. 4, said socket extending into the body of the support.
A filler or insert pad or cushion M is inserted placed and there is no chance of its being misplaced.
In Figs. 5 and 6, we have illustrated a means of providing an adjustable pad or cushion. This is done by providing a socket in the top surface parting from the spirit thereof, except as we may be limited by the hereto appended claims.
1. An arch support formed of cushion material shaped to the foot to support the foot within a as said socket to be seated therein, the edge of said pad being formed to underlie the overhanging edges of said pocket, whereby to be held in place therein.
2. An arch support formed of cushion material with a covering member, said covering member having a portion thereof cut out to form an un- 10 with a covering member, said covering member and said cushion material having a socket cut into them for a part only of the thickness of said cushion material with overhanging edges, said edges being at angles to each other, and an auxiliary pad conforming to said socket to be seated therein and underlying the overhanging edges of said pocket to be held thereby.
