RUBBER BO OT AND SHOE.
SPECIFICATION forming partof Letters Patent No. 288,127,
dated .November 6, 1883.
. Application filed September 7, 1883. (No model.)
-.To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, FREDERICK M. SHEP- of New Jersey, haveinvented a new and useful Improvement in Rubber Boots and Shoes, which improvement is 'fully set forth in the p following specification.
p This invention has reference to the manufacture of indie-rubber boots and shoes, and has for its obj set to increase their strength and durability.
In rubber boots and shoes of the ordinary construction great strain is put upon the edge of the upper where it joins the sole, and the rubber frequently cracks or tears at that part. Particularly is this the case-when, in coasting downhill, the edge of the shoe is used to guide the sled. To'streng'then the shoe at this part, and enable it to withstand such wear without splitting or tearing, I turn up the edge of the sole upon the upper for a quarter of an inch (more orless) all around the shoe, therebybringing the line of union between these parts higher up on the side of the shoe, and forming around the bottom a strong thick edge, which will stand a great amount. of wear. It has been proposed heretofore to strengthen the toe, which is liable to wear from strikingimpediments in walking, by turning up the end of the sole over the upper, and to turn-up the back of the heel in the same manner. .It has also been proposed to construct aboot for the use of seine-men with a flap turned up at the shank only; but so far as I am aware a rub-' ber boot or shoe with the sole turned up entire- 1y around the heel or around the whole upper is a new article of manufacture.
. In the accompanying drawings, Figure l is a perspectiveview, and Fig. 2 a cross-section,
of a rubber shoe constructed in accordance with the invention.
In constructing a boot or shoe according to my invention,the sole Aand upper B areseparately formed in the ordinary way. In cutting the sole', however, it is made large enough. 'to leave a margin, (1., which is turned up all around the shoe and the parts united by vulcanization or otherwise. The margin a may be of the same width throughout; or it may have an irregular edge. It is preferred to have the edge of the part a regular along the sides of the boot or shoe, with projecting points" b c at the toe and heel, as shown in Fig. 1, though the invention is notlimited to such or any precise construction. It is also preferred to have the turned-up strip serrated in the same manner as the rest of the sole.
It is obvious that modifications could be made in the width of theturned-up margin and in other details of construction without departing from the spirit of the invention, and also that a part only of the invention may be used. For example, the sole'may be turned upar0und the heel only, therestof the shoe being constructed in the ordinary way.
It is also'obvious that the turned-up edge may be formedin a separate piece from the sole and made homogeneous therewith,after being applied to the boot or shoe, by vulcanization.
I claim p An 'india-rubber boot or shoe havingthe sole turned up over the upper around the whole boot or shoe, forming a protector for the up: per, substantially as described.
In testimony whereof I have signed this specification in the presence oftwo subscribing witnesses. H
