BUILT- IN ARCH SUPPORT Filed Oct. 19, 1933 MVENITOR v Qliverizfllagmlq.

msr-Am e Patented Nov. 10, 1936 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 3 Claims.

This invention relates to shoes having integral arch supporters, and its main object is to provide an arch supporter which may be built into a shoe, so as to provide adequate support for the bones at the arch of the foot.

Another object of the invention is to improve the details of construction of an inbuilt arch supporter, so that the device can be economically utilized in the commercial production of shoes.

Still another object is to provide an inbuilt arch supporter whereby the bones of the foot will be retained in their normal position rather than permitted to assume a fallen position.

With the above and other objects in view, the invention consists in certain new and useful construction, combination, and arrangement of parts, described in the following specification, and illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in which:

Figure 1 is a plan View of a preferred form of the invention.

Figure 2 is a longitudinal sectional view, taken on line 22 of Fig. 1.

Figure 3 is a transverse sectional view, taken on line 3-3 of Fig. 1.

In Figs. 1, 2 and 3, is shown an inner sole 29, against the lower side of which a filler 30 is disposed, the channel 3| and 3m, and flanges 3| and 3la' being formed in the sole 29 and the filler 30. The main arch support 32 is located between the inner sole 29 and the sole filler 30, while the leather arch supporting section or facing 33 is disposed and molded upon the curved arch support 32, and attached thereto by rivets 34 or the like.

In this case the metal arch support extends from side to side, so as to provide raised wings 32a. and 32b, to engage and support the opposite sides of the foot; a filler 38 being disposed in the heel portion between the sole 29 and the filler 30.

Lining material 35 is disposed between the layers 29 and 30, and a bottom facing strip 31 may be secured to the bottom face of the inner sole.

It will be understood that this invention may be incorporated in shoes made under all methods, such as McKay, and Goodyear welt, and turn methods.

From the foregoing it will be seen that a simple construction for this purpose has been disclosed in the preferred form of its embodiment, but it is not desired to restrict the details to the exact constructions shown, it being obvious that changes, not involving the exercise of invention, may be made within the scope of the appended claims.

Having thus described the invention, what is claimed as new and desired to secure by Letters Patent, is:

1. An inner sole marginally channelled at the sides and front, a filler fixed at its edges in the channel, a U-shaped metallic arch support fixed to said filler and suited to receive a foot between its upright elements, reenforcing means for the sides of said support, and fabric facings on the under side of said filler and support elements.

2. An inner sole for welt shoes in the process of manufacture, consisting of an inner sole having channelled side edges to receive the main sole and consisting of two layers longitudinally separated from each other for a major portion of the length of the inner sole, a metal arch support having a base disposed between the two layers and wings raised from the inner sole, the upper layer of the inner sole having Wings to cover the wings of the metal arch support, and means connecting the arch support to the inner sole layers.

3. An inner sole marginally channelled at the sides and front, a filler fixed at its edges in the channel, a U-shaped metallic arch support fixed to said filler and suited to receive a foot between its upright elements, and reenforcing means for the sides of said support.
