ELBERT VA'UGHll, OF BATES, ARKANSAS.
Bates, in the county of Scott and State of Arkansas, have invented new and useful .linprovern'ents'in Shoe-Protectors, oi' which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to shoe protectors designed for the purpose of protecting a shoe at the shank and instep when. worn by miners, laborers on railways and Vother places where shovels or spades are used.
.One of the prin-"cipal objects of the invention is to provide a metal rotector plate for the shankportion of the slice and thebreast portion of the heel, and means for connecting this plate to the shoe, the strap passing over the lnstep being of sufficient width to give strength to this portion of the foot of the user.
Another object of theinvention is to provide a shoe protectorwhich can be readily detached from and attached to the shoe after it has been placed upon the foot.
These and other objects may be attained by means of the construction ill .stratedin the accompanyin drawing, in Which:-
Figure 1 isa si e view of the inner side of a shoe having a protector made in accordance with my invention applied thereto. Fig. is a similar view of the outer side oi shoe having my protector secured thereto.A We 3 is a plan view of the same. Referring to the drawing for a more tisular description of my invention, the nu meral 1 designates a shoewhich may be of any required style or contour and applied to the shoe is my protector, consisting of a metal plate 2 having a downturned lug 3, which bears against the breast portion of the heel of the shoe. 'The plate'2 conforms substantially to the contour of the shank of the shoe and saidy plate is secured by rivets a to piece of leather or other flexible material 5,

said leather portion extending around the` heel as at 6 and being gradually reduced in 4width as at 7 and having a buckle 'billet 8 for-med on the front end thereoito en age a.' .buckle '9 connected to the inner shan fla 10 by means oi' a leather loop 11 connected 'thereto in any suitable manner, The front portiono the leather 5 extends over the instep as at i2 and secured to this portion is a' strap 13 such strap being connected to the leather by ineens of a rivet 14. A buckle ,15 is connected to the shank flap 10and the strap 13 is adjustably connected to this buckle.
f From the foregoing it will be obvious that a shoe provided with- .my protector braces the shankand' ankle portion of the foot of the wearer; that owing. tothe downwardly turned lug 3, a shovel or spade may be readiiy pushed in to the ground without moving the rotector plate and that the protector as a wi ole maybe readily connected to or disconnected from a shoe whenever reqlured.
The device is simple in construction, can
he manufactured at slight cost and is-very strong, durable and eflicient in use.
Having thus described the invention, what clai' i'as new, is
A protector late for shoes having a downturned lug to ear against the breast of the heel, a leather foundation piece to which the i nieta plate riveted, said foundation plece covering the' inner side ofthe shoe and e'X- tending around the heel and over the instep, straps secured to 'the instep and heel portions, and a shank iiap carrying'buckles tol engage said straps.
in testimony whereof laffix my signature .in prese. ce oi' two witnesses.
