Sept 19, W39 M. \NINKEL 9 3 SHOE v Filed Sept. 25. 1938 Sept. 39, 1939 2 Claims.
This invention relates to shoes of the character, construction or style known as "clogs and has for its object the provision of such a shoe of simple, yet sturdy construction; which may be is worn with comfort; which may be speedily donned and removed and which may be successfully embodied in various attractive designs, styles and color schemes to either match or contrast with other elements of the wearer's costume.
More particularly, the inventioncomprehends the provision of a shoe of the character mentioned, wherein the body portion of the shoe is composed oi. a relatively thick sole and heel portime having its upper surface hollowed or re- 25 cessed to conform to the under-surface of the foot and provided with an upstanding inflexible marginal wall portion embracing and substantially surrounding the lower'portion of the side of the foot, with fastening elements anchored at the top of said wall portionand extending across the top of the foot to maintain the shoe in position of wear. I
In the accompanying drawing, wherein several embodiments of the invention are shown, Fig. l is $5 a perspective view of a shoe constructed in accordance with the invention; Fig. 2 is a sectional view on the line 2-2 of Fig. 1, looking in the directionof the arrows; Fig. 3 is a longitudinal sectional view through the shoe; Fig. 4 is a sectiona1 view at the front of the shoe, showing the seam construction for the covering'material; Fig. 5 is a perspective view of a modified structure; Fig. 6 is a sectional view on the line d--@ of Fig. 5, looking in the direction of the arrows; Fig. '7 is a sectional view on the line l -l of Fig. 5, looking in the direction of the arrows; and Fig. 8 is a sectional view through the upstanding'wall portion of the shoe of Fig. 5 showing the manner in which the covering material and lining are seamed toto gether.
- With reference to the structure shown in Figs. 1 to a inclusive, 9 indicates the body portion or foundation of the shoe. The same is preferably shaped from a solid block or section of suitable as material, such as cork, wood, felt, rubber or the like, the primary requisites of the material mployed being lightness and the ability to maintain its shape. Instead of being a solid block, the body portion may be hollow or otherwise conso structed. The body portion so produced has its lower face formed with an inverted V-notch It, thus. producing a sole portion 2 and heel portion 3. The upper face of the body portion is shaped to accurately conform to the under surface of 55 the foot, as indicated at 4 (Fig. 3), and surrounding the foot recess so formed, is an upstanding, marginal, foot-confining, rigid or inflexible wall 5, said wall extending completely around the top of the body portion and acting to confine the foot within the recess which it defines, and comfort- 5 ably disposed upon the foot-conforming surface d.
The sides of the body portion I are covered by a suitable flexible covering of sheet material 8, such as leather, fabric, rubber or the like, the 10 material so employed being intimately secured to the sides of the body portion by adhesive or the like, and provided with flap portions 1 which are tucked under the bottom of the body portion and confined between the same and the applied sole lid layer 8 and heel lift 9, as clearly seen in Figs. 1,
2 and 3.
The upper end of the covering 65 is stitched as at H, to the upper edge of a liningv material l2 composed off-leather, fabric or the like, the seam 2b defined by said line of stitching being located along the top of the upstanding wall portion 5 and extending co-extensively therewith. The lining material, which extends over the inner face of the wall portion d, is extended and secured beneath the insole it] which is adhesively secured on the shaped upper face 6 of the body portion.
For holding the shoe in position on the foot, various types of fastening elements may be em ployed, an example of one type consisting of the bands or strap members Hi andlb. These elements form loops and are preferably composed of a flexible and elastic material and extend across the top of the foot to hold theshoe securely, yet as comfortably thereon. The ends of each of these loops are directed between the meeting ends of the lining l2 and covering 6 and are held therebetween by means of the line of stitching i I.
In the embodiment of the invention shown in 40 Figs. 5 to 8 inclusive, the structure of the body portion i is generally similar to that shown,in Fig. 1, except that the upstanding wall or rim 5 thereof is flattened slightly at the top, and an inset section or strip ll of covering material has it its edges seamed by the parallel lines of stitching it and is to the upper edges of the lining l2 and outer covering material 8. If, for example, the
strip 17 so employed be of a color or shade contrasting with that of the lining l2 and outer cov- 50 erlng material 8, a novel contrasting eflect is attained which will greatly enhance the design of the shoe. The-loop members as and it may be employed in commotion with a shoe of the constood that other means for holding the shoe on the foot can also be edventageously'used. For example, in Fig. 5 o plurality of sgoeced loop members it are employed, the same being eecured at their bases in the seam it. These loops are preferably of expensihie material and are spaced along the top dge of the well 5 and pro ject upwardly therefrom. A laoe 2i drawn through the several loops ole-operates therewith in providing means by which the shoe may be securely and comfortably held upon the foot.
While I have shown severei embodiments of the invention, it will be obvious that the some is not to be restricted thereto since various modifications may be made in design, materiel, structure and general melee-up of the shoe without departing from the spirit of the invention.
What I claim is:
1. Ashoe of the "cioe type bovine e body por tion or base formed with an upper face shaped to fit the foot, said block having en integral, on standing well extending completely around end enclosing the shaped upper face to confine the 2, meme members secured along the upper end of said weii, said fastening ,mem'oers being enchored thei'eet by the stitching uniting the lining and covering.
2. A shoe of the clog" type consistmg of a solid block and formed with a. toot -shaped recess in its upper end, said recess being defined by an upstanding rigid enclosingwall formed es an integral portion of the block, inner end outer covering material extending over the bioci: and seemed together along the top edge oi the well, and loop members extending across the? recess from one side or the wall to the other, the ends of sold loop members being secured in the team.
