PATENT OFFICE DESIGN FOR A RUBBER SOLE Application January 5, 1940, Serial No. 89,316

Term of patent 14 years To all whom it 'may concern:

Be it known that I, Francis A. Johnson, a citizen of the United States, residing at Endicott, county of Broome, State of New York, and whose post-office address is 1106 Broad Street, in said city, have invented a new, original, and ornamental Design for a Rubber Sole, of which the following is a specification, reference being had to the accompanying drawing, constituting a part thereof.

In said drawing:

Fig. 1 is a bottom plan View of a rubber sole showing my new design.

Fig. 2 is an enlarged transverse section on the line 22, Fig. 1.

The characteristic features o! the rubber sole are the provision, on the entire tread and shank portions of the sole, of uniformly spaced narrow intersecting ribs of substantial height and constant cross-section forming relatively deep recesses of parallelogrammatic shape having parallel side walls; also the provision of the solid relatively narrow grooved strip cci-extensive with the tread and shank portions of the sole and parallel with the edges thereof, and disposed within the recessed areas of the tread and shank portions of the sole.

I claim:

The ornamental design for a rubber sole, substantially as shown and described.
