DESIGN FOR A RUBBER BOOT OR SHOE.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Design No. 16,208, dated August 18, 1885.
Applicati n lilnd June [5, i i.
Boots and Shoes, of which the tbllowing is a specification.
This design relates to rubber boots and shoes,
and is illustrated in the accompanying (ll'tll.\'-
ing,whcre a boot embodying the design is shown in perspective.
The leading feature ot my design consists of l a raised Front vertical rib and encircling bands upon the leg of the boot,and a central rib and diagonal side ribs upon the upper, the diagonal j;
ribs being joined at intervals by bands, substantially as hereinafter described.
The surface of the boot is provided with a wide central vertical raised rib, a, in front. 1
It is also provided with bandsb, runningarouud the leg in an inclined direction-that is, the ends meet at the rib a in front, and from theut e incline upward toward the back. The bands are similar to rib a in character, except that they are narrower, so that at theirjunction both are of the same height and merge together in such manner as to appear integral. The upper of the boot or shoe has a central raised rib, c, and diagonal side ribs, d, extending from a backward toward the sole. The side ribs are joined at intervals by connecting bands e, thereby dividing the surface into parallelogranis. These ribs 0, (Z, and e rescui- Term of patent 7 years.
ble the ribs of the leg, and merge at their junction so as to appear integral in the same manner. The bands 0 break joints with one another-that is to say, they alternate in adjacent rows, as clearly shown in the drawing.
While the main feature of my design relates to the ornamentation of the entire boot, yet my design is also applicable to shoes, as the design shown for the upper is obviously adapted to use with shoes. It is also apparent that the ornamentation upon the leg may be employed where the upperis difi'erently ornw nicnted. Hence I desire to lay claim to these features as sub-designs.
