Description
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

In the past, people whom suffer from pain in their feet use insoles in their shoes for added comfort while wearing them. There are two defects with the prior art. First is the inconvenience of having to move the insoles between shoes. Second and most important, the users lose the comfort in their feet once the shoes are removed. The solution is integrating the insoles with the construction of the sock. As a result, when the shoes are removed, the comfort stays with their feet using the sock constructed with the insole.

SUMMARY OF INVENTION

Accordingly, the primary objective of the present invention is to provide a sock constructed with an insole wherein the bottom of the sock sole is comprised of two sock soles forming a pocket for an insole to be placed and securely sealed in the sole of the sock.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF DRAWING

FIG. 1 is a cross-sectional view of a sock constructed with an insole.

FIG. 2 is a three-dimensional front view of a sock constructed with an insole.

FIG. 3 is a two-dimensional rear view of a sock constructed with an insole.

It is to be noted that the attached drawings illustrate only typical embodiments of this invention and are therefore not to be considered limiting of its scope, as the invention may disclose other equally effective embodiments.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF DRAWING

Referring to FIG. 1 shown therein is a cross-sectional view of a sock constructed with an insole. The sock 1 which is fabricated from interlaced fabric such as woven or knitted cotton, wool, nylon, rayon, or more preferably a stretchable elastic fabric has a pocket portion 2 comprised of an inner sock sole 3 and an outer sock sole 4. The insole 5 is comprised of memory foam material which is placed within the pocket 2.

As can be seen from FIG. 2 (the front view) and FIG. 3 (the rear view), the insole 5 is placed within the pocket 2 which is made up of the inner sock sole 3 and outer sock sole 4.

The user's foot is to rest on the inner sock sole 3.

The sock 1 is constructed in this manner in order for the insole 5 to absorb the shock for the foot when stepping on the ground without the foot coming in contact with the insole 5.

While the particular embodiments for socks as herein shown and disclosed in detail are fully capable of obtaining the objects and advantages herein before stated, it is to be understood that they are merely illustrative of the presently preferred embodiments of the invention and that no limitations are intended by the details of construction or design herein shown other than as described in the appended claims.
