Specification forming part of Design No. 11.152, dated April S, 1e79 application tiled March 13, 1579. [Term of patent 21;- years] To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, BENJ. 1 Jowns, of Lynn, in the county of Essex and State of Massachusetts, have originated a new and useful Design for Boot and Shoe Heels, of which the following, taken in connection with the accompanying drawings, is a speciiica tion.

The drawing represents a perspective View of a boots or shoe heel embodying my improved design, in which A is the body of the heel; a, the tread-lift; b, c, and (I, bands extending around the two sides and the rear portion of the heel, parallel, or nearly so, to the tread-surface thereof, and projecting a greater or less distance beyond the general curved outline of the heel for the purpose of breaking up the plain curved surface of the heel into several divisions or members, and. thereby apparently reduce the height of the heel.

These several bands may be all of the same color or of difl'erent colors, and maybe formed directly upon the heel in the act of trimming or sha p ing the heel, or it may be formed by bending a band of sheet metal around the heel and firmly securin g it thereto, which band of metal may be plain, forming only two lines of projection, or it'finay have its two edges turned over onto itself, so as to form four lines of projection when placed upon the heel, forming the three bands b, c, and d, as shown.

In some cases I propose to ornament the securing therein ornamental figures c or f respectively.

What I claim as new, and desire to secure I by Letters Patent ot' the United States, is l 1. The design for a boot or shoe heel, as set forth, consisting in the addition to an ordinary plain heel of one or more projecting bands extending around the sides and rear portions of said heel, parallel, or nearly so, to the treadsurt'ace thereof, substantially as shown and described.

:2. The design for a boot or shoe heel, as set forth, consisting of aheel having one or more raised or projecting bands extending around the side and rear portions thereof, and orna mented by sunken or raised figures, one or both, substantially as described and shown.

Executed at Boston, Massachusetts, this 10th day of March, 1871).
