Jan.'22 ,"1946. s. VSOSKE .SHOE SOLE OR SHOE SOLE' ELEMENT Filed Dec. 26, 1942 ATM/Mira.

4-4 of Fig. 3.

Patented Jan. 22, 1946 UNITED STATES PATENT or FICE v 2,393,433 a I SHOE SOLE on SHOE SOLE ELEMENT Stanislav VSoske, Grand Rapids, lVfich. Application December 26, 1942, Serial No.410,12i

9 Claims. (or. 36-25) Second, to provide a shoe sole element having the above advantages whichmay be applied or associated with an upper by the use of machinery now widely in use without the necessity of "substantial,modification therein. 7

Third, to provide a shoe sole element which may be economically produced in large quantities. V

Objects relating to details and economies of the invention will appear from the description to follow. The invention is defined in the claims. A preferred embodiment of the invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in

' Fig. 1 is a fragmentaryside elevation of my improved shoe sole element, its association with an upper and a heel being indicated by dotted lines.

Fig. 2 is a t'op plan view of my improved shoe sole element, parts being shown conventionally.

Fig. 3 is a bottom view, parts being shown conventionally. N a

Fig. 4 is an enlarged transverse section on line Fig. 5 is an enlarged longitudinal fragmentary section on line 5-5 of 2. I lft should be understood that i use the term shoe in its broader meaning as including various kinds of footwear, such as boots, shoes, slippers, sandals, and the like. H I

Theshoe sole of the embodiment of my invention illustrated comprises a foundation fabric I in which the warp andwoof are of the same size multithread cord-like strands 2. These strands are preferably of cotton; the desirable feature of which for this use isthe strength and the fact that it does not have objectionable stretching In the toe portion or area 6 the tufts are set in such density as't'o provide a closely compacted nap area, as shown in Fig. 5. This nap area ma b d m e n e c napthan the ball portion of thefoot, as shown in la a The shank portion 1 H dense than the ball portion. The mainadvanagain making it'of less density is the "savingin material. The dense toe'portion, it willbe understood is subject to greater wear tan the ball portion. p g r The edges 8 of the foundation fabricare extended beyond the t'uftingwhile at the heel there is a heel portion 9 of foundation fabric only also extended beyond the tufting, see Fig. 3. a

The tufting may for lighter shoes such as w'omens shoes, be defsir bly romea of wool strands. When formed of wool strands, a braided welt strip in is secured to the foundation fabric by stitching H. This welt stripfis'placed "is preferab y m d es around the tuft ing or at the edges of the nap tory for outdoor tuftin'g in supporting relation thereto, as shown in Fi 4. 4 v

'After the tufting and welt strip are applied, a layer or coating of waterproofing material l2, desirably of latex, is applied to the inner side of the foundation fabric, this coating extending onto the untufted edges *and'de'sirably beyond the same as indicated at [3 in Fig. 2, the latex forming in itself a sheet-like layer. a I

A platform member [4 formed of relatively stiff material, preferably fibrous material, is superimposed upon the foundation fabric and-the untufted edges of the foundation fabric folded inwardly thereon. This provides a sole element which may be applied to the shoe in the usual manner, the upper being indicated by dotted lines [5 and the h'eelby the dotted lines IS in Fig. 1. A suitable insole and filler material can be superimposed on this wool element.

My improved sole element is, a stated, adapted for a wide variety of uses and is founds'atisfacor generalwear. The tuftin'g may, if desired, be treated with waterproofing material. It is bound by the latex or'waterproofing material so that in the event the loops wear through, the strands are still retained until the tufts are worn substantially down to the foundation fabric.

I have not attempted to illustrate or describe the various embodiments or adaptations of my invention as it is believed that'this disclosure will enable those skilled in the art to embody or adapt my invention as may be desired.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new/and desire to secure by lietters Patent is;

in the matter ;of the 1.,An outer sole comprising a woven foundation fabric in which both the Warp and woof are of cord-like strands and including sole, shank and heel portions, strand nap material looped into said sole and shank portions of said foundation fabric in a predetermined sole tread and shank pattern and being uncut to provide a continuous tufted surface, the tufts being of substantial depth and uncut, the foundation fabric extending beyond the tufting and also beyond the heel portion of the foundation fabric, a welt strip disposed below thefoundation fabric at the edges of the tufting and in side supporting relation thereto and stitched to the said foundation fabric, and a platform member of relatively stiff material superimposed on said foundation fabric and overlying the said sole, shank and heel portions thereof, the said extending portions of said foundation fabric being folded over the edges of and lapped upon the said platform member.

2. An outer sole for shoes comprising a foundation fabric having continuous sole, shank and heel portions, and tuft material looped into said foundation fabric in a predetermined pattern to provide a sole tread surface and a shank surface,

the heel portion of said foundation fabric being without tufting, the foundation fabric having continuous portions extending beyond the edges of the tufted sole tread and shank portions and said heel portion, relatively stiff material conformed to and arranged upon the upper side of said sole, shank and heel portions of said foundation fabric, the said extending edges of said foundation fabric being folded inwardly into superimposed relation to said platform member.

3. An outer sole element comprising a foundation fabric and tufting material looped into said foundation fabric in a predetermined sole tread and shank pattern, the tufts being closely arranged in side by side mutually supporting relation, a welt strip of fibrous material disposed in surrounding side supporting relation to the border tufts and stitched to the foundation fabric, the foundation fabric being extended beyond the edges of the tufting and said welt strand, and a platform memberarranged upon the foundation, the said extending edges of said foundation being folded inwardly into superimposed relation to said platform member and secured thereto.

4. An outer sole comprising a foundation fabric and tufting material looped into said foundation fabric in a predetermined sole tread pattern, the tufting being closely arranged in side by side mutually supporting relation, the foundation fabric being extended beyond the edges of the tufting, and a platform member arranged upon the foundation fabric, the said extending edges of said foundation fabric being folded inwardly into superimposed relation to said pla form member.

5. A sole for shoes comprising a foundation fabric having integral sole, shank and heel portions surrounded by an integral border portion of substantial width extending beyond the edges of said sole, sh'ank and heel portions, tuft material looped into the sole and shank portions of said foundation in predetermined sole and shank patterns to provide an outer sole tread surface for the sole portion and an outer shank portion, the heel portion of said foundation being without tufting, also untufted and constituting means for anchoring the outer sole to associated shoe parts when and a platform member of assembled therewith to present the tufted sole portion downwardly as a sole tread wear surface, and a cord of fibrous material of a diameter approximating the depth of the tufts disposed below the foundation at the edges of the tufts in side supporting relation thereto and stitched to the foundation, the tufts intermediate the said outer tufts being closely arranged in side by side supporting relation to each other.v
