Description


  



   The present invention relates to a lacing system for slip shoe slipper, such as skiing, surfing or skating, comprising at least one lace to a strand passing passers distributed on each side of the slipper and allowing the tightening of the slipper by tensioning said lace.



   The present invention also relates to a liner having a lacing system according to the invention and a gliding sports shoe combined with such a liner.



   Lacing systems are known in the state of the art. The patent application FR 2 742 969, for example, shows an inner boot for a sports shoe having a sole and a rod comprising a tightening means for tightening the boot on the foot. The sole and the rod are made of materials with low resistance to tensile stresses and the clamping means surrounds at least a portion of the shoe being disposed outside thereof. More particularly, the clamping means surrounding the liner is formed by several straps which distribute evenly the clamping force around the foot. Each strap has two ends with a loop through which a lace and the tensioning of the lace brings said ends of the straps towards one another.

   Each strap is attached to the bootie by a retaining means, such as a rivet. The disadvantage of this system is that, as the straps completely surround the boot, the tightening will result in local deformation of the boot especially in the lower part of the stem around the foot of the user which is unpleasant or even painful.



   In addition, the straps having a specific width, they will create by clamping reduced areas of pressure on the leg and the foot of the user which also becomes painful in the long run and can affect good blood circulation.



   UK Patent Application 2 113 071 shows an orthopedic boot comprising a number of adjustable straps surrounding the user's foot and ankle.



     Patent applications FR 2 615 074, 2 688 121 and 2 692 450 still describe other particular lacing systems for sports shoes.



   The object of the invention is to improve known lacing systems. For this purpose it is proposed a lacing system as defined in claim 1, a slipper equipped with this system defined in claim 9 and a shoe comprising such a slipper defined in claim 10.



   More particularly, the invention provides a simple, effective lacing system that allows optimal tightening of the boot without hard spot on the foot of the user and while wrapping the foot better which improves the guidance.



   The lacing system is characterized in that it comprises at least one flap with two ends, one end of which is attached to one side of the liner and the other end has a loop through which the lace is passed, so that the tensioning of the lace pulls said flap towards the opposite side of the shoe to that on which it is fixed.



   The invention will be better understood by the detailed description of two embodiments thereof. Fig. 1 shows a first embodiment of the lacing system according to the invention and FIG. 2 shows a second embodiment of the lacing system according to the invention.



   The first embodiment of the invention is described with reference to FIG. 1. In this figure, the boot 1 comprises a sole 2 and a rod 3 with an upper part of the rod 3a intended to surround the bottom of the leg of the user. The liner comprises a lace 4 passing through loops 5, 6, 7 and 8 distributed on each side of the upper part 3a of the rod. In order not to form hard points on this upper part and to reinforce it, it is possible to provide reinforcements 9, 10 attached to said upper part 3a.



     In the part of the rod 3b located in the zone of the instep of the user, there are two flaps 11 and 12 which are attached on each side of the slipper 1 on the upper 3, preferably at the sole. 2. The attachment may be made by gluing, sewing or any other equivalent means. Each flap has a free end 11a, 12a, which is not attached to the boot 1 and which is extended by a strap 13, 14. The strap 14 has at its end remote from the flap 12 a loop 15 which is crossed by the lace 4. In addition the strap 14 passes through a loop attached to the shoe 1 and returns to the front of the instep area.

   The unrepresented side of the liner is perfectly symmetrical with a loop 17 on the strap 13 and has a loop similar to the loop 16 to allow the return of the strap on the front of the liner.



   The lace 4 successively crosses the loop 8 attached to the liner, then the loop 6 placed on the other side of the upper part 3a of the liner 1, and finally the loop 17 of the free end of the strap 13 attached to the flap 11. The lace then crosses in front of the bootie, in an area situated on the front of the user's ankle, then crosses the loop 15 of the strap 14 attached to the flap 12, the loop 7 and returns to the other side of the slipper. to cross the passer 5 attached to the shoe 1.



   Thus, by tensioning the lace 4, the loops 15 and 17 come closer to each other which has the effect of tightening the straps 13 and 14, this effect resulting in a tightening of the neck area. foot by the sliding of the two flaps 11, 12 on one another. As a result, the liner is compressed around the wearer's foot, without a hard point thanks to the flaps 11 and 12 at the same time as the upper part 3a is tightened around the ankle and the leg of the user.



   The second embodiment of the slipper lacing system is described with reference to FIG. 2. The liner 20 comprises a sole 21 and a rod 22 with an upper portion 22a. The system further comprises a single-stranded lace 23 which passes through loops 24, 25 and 26 attached to the liner shaft. The invisible side in fig. 2 slipper 20 comprises loops similar to passers 24 to 26 shown in this fig. 2. The liner 20 further comprises two flaps 27 and 28 which are attached on each side of the shank 22 of the liner 20, preferably at the sole 21.



     This fastening flaps can be performed by sewing, gluing or any other equivalent means. The free end of the flap 28a, which is not attached to the boot 20, has a loop 29 through which the lace 23. As seen in FIG. 2, the lace 23 passes successively in a first passer (not shown) which is at the same height as the passer 24, but on the non-visible side of the shoe, then it passes on the front of the shoe, in the corresponding area approximately at the ankle, through the passer 25, then down the loop 26, back towards the front of the liner to cross the loop 29 attached to the free end 28a of the flap 28. The lace then surrounds the shoe approximately horizontally passing behind the boot 20, above the heel of the user.

    The lace then returns to the side not shown in FIG. 2, passes through a passer similar to the passer 29 but attached to the flap 27, then it descends to cross a loop similar to the passer 26, located in the same area of the shoe 20, but the side not visible in FIG. 2, then back through a passer-by at the same height as the passer 25 and returns to the front of the boot 20 to cross the passer 24 and thus complete his journey around the bootie.



   The tensioning of the lace 23 therefore causes traction on the flaps 27, 28 and causes the loop 29 (and its equivalent on the flap 27) towards the guide 26 which is fixed relative to the shoe 20 and which tightens the the instep 20 instep area around the wearer's foot.



   According to a particular embodiment, it is possible to add loosening means of the liner facilitating said loosening. These means are practical especially in the case of the slipper execution shown in Figure 1. These means are formed at least by a loosening strap 30, which can be guided along the tongue 31 of the liner 1 by passers 32 , 33 and 34 distributed along said tab 31. The lower end of the loosening strap 30 forms a loop or comprises a loop 35 which is traversed by the lace 4.

   When the liner 1 is to be removed, the lace 4 is released and by pulling up the release strap 30, the user gives slack to the lace 4 in the area between the two loops 15 and 17 which facilitates the loosening the straps 13 and 14 of each flap 11 and 12, and, therefore, makes the removal of the slipper easier. The number of loops distributed along the tongue 31 may of course be less than or greater than three.

   In another variant, the loops 32 to 34 can be omitted and the loosening strap 30 can be passed inside the tongue 31, while providing two openings in said tongue 31 so that the lower part of the loosening strap 30 can be tied to the lace 4 and the upper part of the loosening strap 30 can be pulled to facilitate the loosening of the boot 1.



   The system is of course not limited to the number of loops shown in the two described embodiments: it is possible to increase or decrease the number of loops distributed on the slipper, especially those on the part high slipper of fig. 1.



   One can also imagine to place not only one or more flaps in the area corresponding to the instep of the liner but also around that corresponding to the ankle or the lower leg of the user.
