Marcellite M. Sellingen', Oak Bark, Ill.

Application July 11, 1951, JScralNo. 236,13

This invention relates Vto a device adapted to be worn in a ladys shoe or slipper when the wearers feet are bare and the objects are to protect the inner upper face of the sole of the shoe or slipper from moisture and for preventing adherence to the bare foot of the wearer and discoloration and damage to the inner lining of the sole of the shoe or slipper and to provide means whereby the device may be washed.

Referring now to the drawings:

Figure 1 is a perspective view of the underside of the device with its included stifener.

Figure 2 is an elevational view of the top of the device.

Figure 3 is a view of the stiiener.

Figure 4 is a, view of the moisture absorbing covering.

Figure 5 is a section on line 5 5 of Figure 2.

Figure 6 is a View showing the device as used in a shoe or slipper.

Figure '7 is a front view on line 'I--l of Figure 6.

Figure 8 is a partial cross sectional view of the cover shown in Figure 4, and being taken on the line 8 3 thereof.

Referring now to the drawings in detail the device comprises an inner liner, form, or flat blank 2 of any desirable ilexible material such as a plastic, water-proof material of general shape and size of the shoe or slipper or foot wear to be worn. This liner or form 2 is of light weight and is thin and has suicient stiiness to hold its shape when inserted in the stocking material cover 4 as shown in Figure 1 while at the same time being flexible. The cover ll of stocking material as shown in Figure 4 is formed of stocking material of cotton, silk, nylon or other washable material. The material can be of single or double thickness of preferably cotton stocking weave as the same is more absorbent.

The stocking material is cut or formed to the general size desired to enclose the particular inner sole selected for the wearers shoe, slipper or other foot wear when the shoes are to be worn with bare feet. More specifically the stocking material blank is formed to provide a top surface 6 and a marginal portion which extends inwardly all around the border of the form and provides a relatively narrow overfold IB which is then stitched with an elastic thread as at I2 in the manner shown in Figure 1. At the narrow part of the cover as at I4 the elastic thread or cord crosses transversely to attach to the opposite wall of its overlying marginal portion or fold I0 and elastically pulls the two edges of this fold I0 3 Qlaims. (Cl. ySVG- 4(4) 1 2 l at this zone together snugly to hold the stocking cover on the form or liner 2 yet permitting its easy removal for washing.

Figures 6 and 7 show the device inserted in the shoe or slipper of the wearer, the device overlying the sole I6 of the shoe and the bare foot of the wearer resting directly upon the stocking cover 6 while enclosing the relatively thin, substantially exible, water-proof liner on form 2.

By reason of the elastic stitching I2 and the elastic transverse cords or threads at I4, the inner liner 2 may be easily removed from the stocking portion enveloping one face and the relatively narrow marginal reverse face of the liner and washed and then as easily replaced.

By reason of the fact that the liner is of thin water-proof material and the stocking material is thin and moisture absorbent, the stocking liner does not occupy much room in the shoe or slipper. It cushions the bare foot of the wearer, and takes up moisture from the wearers bare foot and protects the liner of the shoe or slipper.

Having thus described my invention what I claim as new is:

l. A device to be worn in the bottom of a shoe or slipper when the same is worn with bare feet, said device comprising a relatively thin liner of substantially the same size as the shoe or slipper, said liner being flexible so as to flex with the shoe or slipper and being suiciently stiff to preclude curling at the edges, and a cover fitting over said liner, said cover being of absorbent, washable material, said cover completely covering the top face of the liner and having a relatively narrow skirt portion lying along the lower face of the liner adjacent the edges thereof, elastic means along the inner edge of said skirt, and a narrow band of elastic extending between opposed portions of said skirt portion across substantially the narrowest part of said liner, said elastic means and band removably holding the cover on the liner.

2. A device to be worn in the bottom of a shoe or slipper when the same is worn with bare feet, said device comprising a relatively thin liner of substantially the same size as the shoe or slipper, said liner being iiexible so as to flex with the shoe or slipper and being suciently stiff to preclude curling at the edges, and a cover fitting over said liner, said cover being of woven cloth stocking material, said cover completely covering the top face of the liner and having a relatively narrow skirt portion lying along the lower face of the liner adjacent the edges thereof, elastic means along the inner edge of said skirt, and a narrow band of elastic extending between opposed portions of said skirt portion across substantially the narrowest part of said liner, said elastic means and band removably holding the cover on the liner.

3. A device to be worn in the bottom of a shoe or slipper when the same is worn with bare feet. said device comprising a relatively thin liner of substantially the same size as the shoe or slipper, said liner being flexible so` as to ex with the shoe or slipper and being sufficiently stii to preclude curling at the edges, and a cover fitting over said liner, said cover being of woven cloth stocking material, said cover completely covering the top face of the liner and having a relatively narrow skirt portion lying along the lower face of the liner adjacent the edges thereof, an

elastic cord stitched along the inner edge of said skirt portion, and a few stitches of said elastic cord extending transversely between opposed sections of said skirt portion beneath substantially the narrowest part of said liner.
