999,567. Specification of Letters Patent.

Taytented Apr. 25, 1911.

Application led August 211, 191C. Serial No. 578,782.

- bodying my invention; Fig. 2 a perspective view of the corset detached; Fig. 3 a longitudinal section of the shoe; Fig. L an enlarged cross section on line 4 4, Fig. 2, and Fig. 5 a similar section on line 5-5, Fig. 3.

lThe top stay is secured to the quarters 11, along its upper edge, and its ends, but is disconnected therefrom at its bottom. The back stay 1Q, passed with its upper end nnderneath top stay 10 and this'overlapped section of the back stay is secured to the top stay and to the quarters by an upright back seam 13 so that the space behind the top stay`is by said seam divided into two distinct pockets. Underneath this seam, back stay 12 is exposed on the inner side of the shoe and this exposed portion is entirely disconnected from the quarters, its lower end being however tucked in between the shank piece or insole 14, and the sole 15.

The corset 16 is composed of a pair of twin wings reinforced by suitable stiffeners 17, and separated on top by an upper central slit 18, while they are united below said slit.

1n assembling the parts, the corset is so slipped into the upper', that it will pass with its upper ends into the pockets formed by top stay 10, while the back seam 13 will be accommodated within slit 18. Below said slit, the central portion of the corset will be covered by the loose section of back stay 1Q, the lower end ot' which is finally secured in position in the manner descrilied, or otherwise.

It will be seen that in the completed shoe, the corset is so attached that it cannot ho'- come dislodged or shifted, any laterali/'de tleeticn of the corset being prevented by the engagement of back seam 13 with slit 18,-/

and also by the top stay and the shoe bottom against which the lower edge oit the corset should abut.


1. A corset shoe provided with a top stay, a back stay, and a corset overlapped at its top by the top stay and along its center below said top by the back stay.

2. A corset shoe provided with a top stay, a back stay overlapped thereby at. its upper end and exposed within the shoe below said end, an upright seam connecting the overlying stay-sections and dividing the space behind the top stay into two distinct pockets, and a slitted corset that projects with its upper ends into said pockets, while it is overlapped below said ends by the exposed lower back stay section.
