DESIGN FOR A RUBBER SOLE.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Design No. 16,025, dated April7, 1885.
Term of patcntiig years.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that we, LAWRENCE F. Non- MAN and EDWARD E. BENNETT, citizens of the United States, residing at Boston, in the county of Suffolk and State of Massachusetts, have invented and produced a new and original Design for aRubber Sole, of which the following is a specification, reference being had to the accompanying drawing, forming part thereof.
The drawing shows in plan view our new design for arubber sole.
The sole a is of usual shape to conform to the contour of the shoe. The sole presents to the eye ribs or bars b b, triangular in cross section, extended across the sole at the ball. At each side of the ribs or bars b b is arranged a double series of triangular pyramidal projections, c. A series or row of hem'isphert cal projections,d,is placed next each double series of triangular pyramidal projections c, and next to the hemispherical projections d toward the shank portion is a single row of pyramidal projectionsaof similar design and configuration to the pyramidal projections 0. Next to the hemispherical series d toward the toe is a star-shaped projection; f, spaces between the points of which are filled with numerous triangular pyramidal proj ections,g. In the center of the heel portion of the sole is astar-shaped portion, h, similar to f, around which and filling the spaces between the points of which are numerous pyramidal projections,i, having triangular bases of various dimensions. Con tiguous to these pyramidal projections i and at the breast portion of the heel is aseries or row of hemispherical projections, m, extending across the sole, and next to this latter series is a single series or row of triangular pyramidal projections, 11, similar to the series 0, with the exception that all are of the same size.
The leading feature of our novel design is the configuration of the surface of the sole. as described. The entire configuration is preferably confined within the sole, leaving ainargin entirely around it.
\Ve claim The herein-described design for a rubber sole, it having bars I) and triangular pyramidal projections c c, hemispherical projections d, and star shaped projectionsf and h, all substantially as represented.
In testimony whereof we have signed our names to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
