Abstract

The aim of the invention is to design a shoe (1) with a central rotary fastener (3) in such a way that the fastener does not open unintentionally when the insole is subjected to stress. This is achieved by virtue of the fact that the fastener (3) is fitted to the outside (2) of the shoe and that the tensioning element (7) is made up of two sections (8, 9) running towards the heel and towards the toe, respectively. Each of the tensioning-element sections (8, 9) is connected to an elastic strap (12, 13), one strap extending forwards over the insole (17) to the inside (18) of the foot and the other extending rearwards round the heel (21) and forwards again on the inside (18) of the foot to pass over the insole (17) towards the outside (2) of the foot.

Description

Die vorliegende Erfindung bezieht sich auf einen Schuh mit einem Zentraldrehverschluß gemäß dem Oberbegriff des Anspruchs 1. The present invention relates to a shoe with a central rotary closure according to the preamble of claim 1.

Ein derartiger Schuh ist aus der US-A- 5 205 055 bekannt. Such a shoe is disclosed in US Patent 5,205,055. Dieser vorbekannte Schuh weist eine Schnüröffnung auf, die - wie üblich - durch eine Zunge verschließbar ist. This prior shoe has a lace opening which - as usual - be closed by a tongue. Die Schnürteile sind jeweils gesondert über Seilverbindungen entweder direkt oder über Umlenkelemente mit einem Zentraldrehverschluß verbunden. The laces parts are separately connected either directly or via deflection over cable connections with a central rotary closure. Der Zentraldrehverschluß wird mittels einer Gaspatrone über eine Schieberstange, die in einem Führungszylinder gleitet, über ein Betätigungsseil so bewegt, daß die Schnürteile gespannt bzw. entspannt werden. The central rotary closure is so moved by means of a gas cartridge via a slide rod which slides in a guide cylinder of an actuating rope that the laces ropes are tensioned or relaxed.

Ein ähnlicher Schuh ist auch aus dem DE-U- 89 12 788 oder aus dem DE-U- 90 05 469 bekannt. A similar shoe is also known from DE-U-89 12 788 or from DE-U-90 05 469th Bei den dort beschriebenen Schuhen ist der Zentraldrehverschluß auf einem Ristschild angebracht, an dem seitliche Schließlappen schwenkbeweglich angeformt sind. In the processes described therein shoes of the central rotary closure is mounted on an instep shield, are formed pivotably on the lateral closing flaps. Das mit dem Zentraldrehverschluß spannbare Spannelement verläuft von diesem Ristschild aus abwechselnd über Umlenkelemente der Schließlappen und des Ristschildes. The tensionable with the central rotary closure clamping element extends from this instep shield of alternately deflecting the closure flaps and instep shield of.

Weiterhin ist es aus dem DE-U- 90 16 325 bekannt, die Schließlappen getrennt vom Ristschild anzuordnen. Furthermore, it is known from the DE-U-90 16 325, the closing flap to be arranged separately from the instep shield. Dabei sind die Umlenkelemente an seitlichen, über den Schuhschaft verlaufende Spannbändern angebracht und diese in entsprechende Aussparungen der Schließlappen einsetzbar. The deflection elements are attached to side, passing over the shoe upper straps, and these can be used in corresponding recesses of the closing flaps.

Derartige bekannte Schuhe mit einem Zentraldrehverschluß können schnell an- und ausgezogen werden. Such known shoes with a central rotary closure can quickly be switched on and taken off. Trotzdem ist die Schließwirkung einfach, schnell und individuell einstellbar. Nevertheless, the closing action is simple, fast and individually.

Mit der vorliegenden Erfindung soll die Aufgabe gelöst werden, Schuhe der vorgenannten Art so auszugestalten, daß bei Belastung des Ristes, beispielsweise durch das Auftreffen eines Balles oder dgl., ein unbeabsichtigtes Öffnen des Schuhes vermieden wird. With the present invention, the problem to be solved is to design footwear of the aforementioned type so as to avoid stress on the instep, for example by the impact of a ball or the like., Unintentional opening of the shoe. Außerdem soll die Herstellung und Montage der Schließeinrichtung in einfacher Weise möglich sein. In addition, the manufacture and assembly of the closing device should be possible in a simple manner.

Gelöst wird diese Aufgabe durch die im Kennzeichen des Anspruchs 1 angegebenen Merkmale. This object is achieved by the features specified in the characterizing part of claim 1.

Durch die Anordnung des Zentraldrehverschlusses außerhalb der Ristbelastungszone im Umgebungsbereich des Außenknöchels und durch die Schließwirkung des Spannelements vom Zentraldrehverschluß aus einerseits nach hinten um die Ferse herum nach vorn über den Rist bis wiederum zur Schuhaußenseite, sowie andererseits nach vorn über den Rist zur gegenüberliegenden Schuhinnenseite, wird eine günstige und fein justierbare Schließwirkung erzielt. The arrangement of the central rotary closure outside the Ristbelastungszone in the surrounding region of the lateral malleolus and by the closing action of the clamping element from the central rotary closure from one hand to the rear around the heel forwardly over the instep to turn to the shoe outer side, and on the other hand forwards over the instep to the opposite medial side is a cheap and finely adjustable locking effect is achieved. Dadurch wird gleichzeitig ein ungewolltes Öffnen bei ansonsten möglicher Belastung des Zentraldrehverschlusses in Öffnungsrichtung vermieden. Characterized accidental opening in otherwise possible load on the central rotary closure in the opening direction is prevented simultaneously.
