This invention relates to a carriage bootee, and more particularly to such an article adapted to be worn by children or infants in baby carriages or the like.

A primary object of this invention is the provision of an improved bootee for children particularly adapted for maintaining a high degree of warmth in the feet of the infant regardless of the temperature, and characterized by means whereby the same may be readily applied to an removed from the infant as desired.

An additional object of the invention is the provision of an improved bootee comprised of a comparative minimum of parts to facilitate manufacture and assembly.

Still another object of the invention is the provision of such a bootee constructed of relatively soft pliable material and characterized by a 'warm inner lining, adapted snugly to accommodate the foot of an infant and at the same time to allow free motion thereof within the confines of the bootee, to a limited extent.

Other objects will in part be obvious and in part be pointed out as the description of the invention proceeds, and shown in the accompanying drawing, wherein there is disclosed a preconcept.

In the drawing: Figure 1 is a side elevational view of one form of bootee embodying the instant inventive concept. v

Figure 2 is a front elevation of thebootee shown in Figure 1. V

Figure 3 is a rear elevation of the bootee.

Similar reference characters 'refer to similar parts throughout the several views of the draw- I'hebootee of the instant invention is comprised of a sole portion ill preferably of soft and relatively pliable leather, fabric or the like. about the periphery of which is secured as by a continuous row of stitching II, a single integral top and toe portion, generally indicated at ii. The portion It includes a relatively narrow front stri ll curved about the front portion of the sole III which flares into an elongated top or leg portion l5 adapted to extend upwardly from the sole to a. desired height. The rearextremities of the portions Ii are secured together, as by a line central split 2| which may be provided with a zipper fastener 22. All of the portions It, IS and I! are comprised of relatively soft leather, fabric or the like, and a suitable lining 23 of fleece, fur or similar material may be positioned interiorly of the bootee and cover the entire inner surface including the sole thereof.

From the foregoing, it will now be seen that there is herein provided an improved bootee characterized by exceptional warmth and incorporating means whereby the same may be readily put on or removed as desired, which is comprised of a relative minimum of parts and adapted to be assembled with a minimum of difliculty, which accomplishes all the objects of this invention, and others, including many advantages of great practical utility and commercial importance.

As many embodiments may be made of this inventive concept, and as many modifications may be made in-the embodiment hereinbefore shown and described. it is to be understood that all matter herein is to be interpreted merely as illustrative and not in a limiting sense.

I claim:

1. In a bootee, a sole portion, a unitary toe and leg portion secured about the entire periphery of said sole portion, and having its extremities secured together at the rear of the bootee, and a unitary cap and front portion secured to the top edge of the toe portion and joining the front edges of the leg po'rtion,.said front portion being longitudinally split, and fastening means for the separated parts thereof, said fastening means comprisinga zipper.
