Abstract

A shoe has a central buckle coupled to at least a string-like tightening element whose tightening length may be shortened to close the shoe and increased to open the shoe. In order to design a closing mechanism in such a way that the elastic properties of the shoe upper are not affected, the instep cover (17) is drawn downwards on both sides of the shoe (6, 8) towards the sole. This ensures a favourable pressure distribution throughout the instep, as the instep cover (17) can be well fitted to the shape of the instep.

Description

  • Die vorliegende Erfindung bezieht sich auf einen Schuh mit einem Zentralverschluß gemäß dem Oberbegriff des Anspruches 1. The present invention relates to a shoe with a central closure according to the preamble of claim 1.
  • Ein derartiger als Skistiefel ausgebildeter Schuh ist beispielsweise aus der EP-B1 - 0 099 504 oder aus der EP-B1 - 0 132 744 bekannt. Such as a ski boot formed shoe is known for example from EP-B1 - known from 0,132,744 to 0,099,504 or EP-B1. Bei diesen Skistiefeln ist ein Zentralverschluß jeweils am Schafthinterteil des bekanntlich aus relativ starrem Material bestehenden Stiefelschaftes vorgesehen. In these ski boots a central closure is provided in each case on the shaft of the rear part is known, consisting of relatively rigid material boot leg. Es ist eine Abdeckung vorhanden, die sich über den Ristbereich und das Fußgelenk bis zum Schienbeinansatz erstreckt. It is a cover provided which extends over the instep and the ankle up to the tibial approach. Diese Abdeckung ist daher in der Seitenansicht winkelartig geformt. This cover is therefore formed angularly in the side view. Vom Zentralverschluß aus erstreckt sich ein Spannelement beidseitig etwa vom Sohlenbereich im Bereich des Fußgelenks aus über die Abdeckung. From the central closure of a clamping element extends on both sides from approximately the sole area in the region of the ankle on the cover. Die Abdeckung besteht ebenfalls aus einem relativ starren Material und dient dazu, den Fuß in den Schuh fest einzuspannen. The cover is also made of a relatively rigid material and serves to clamp the foot in the shoe. Sie befindet sich im Schuh zwischen einem weichen Innenschuh und der starren Außenschale. It is located in the shoe between a soft liner and the rigid outer shell.
  • Weiterhin ist es aus der DE-A- 35 24 792 bekannt, bei einem Skistiefel auf dem vorderen Schaftteil eine Biegemanschette aus starrem Material vorzusehen, die im Bereich des Knöchels schwenkbar am Schaft angelenkt ist und sich nach oben bis über die Mitte des Schienbeins erstreckt. Furthermore, it is known from DE-A 35 24 792, to provide in a ski boot on said front quarter a bending sleeve of rigid material, which is articulated in the region of the ankle pivotally mounted on the shaft and extends upward to about the middle of the tibia. Im oberen Endbereich sind seitlich an der Biegemanschette Spannelementenden befestigt, die mit einem am Schafthinterteil befindlichen Zentralschiebeverschluß gekuppelt sind. In the upper end portion fixed to the bending sleeve clamping element ends laterally, which are coupled to a shaft located on the rear of central sliding closure. Die Biegemanschette kann daher im Schienbeinbereich gegen den Schaft gezogen werden. The bending sleeve can therefore be pulled against the shaft in the tibial region.
  • Schließlich ist aus der DE-A-39 19 661 ein Verschluß für alpine Skischuhe bekannt, bei denen der Schaft von steifen Vorder- und Hinterschalen aus Kunststoff gebildet ist. Finally, a closure for alpine ski boots is 19,661 known from DE-A-39 in which the shaft is formed of rigid front and rear shells made of plastic. Um eine gleichmäßige und symmetrische Zugkraft auf den Schaft eines derartigen alpinen Skischuhes auszuüben, wird ein Zugband in mehreren Umlenkrollenpaaren geführt, die symmetrisch zu den Vorder- und Hinterschalen des Schaftes angebracht sind. In order to exert a uniform and symmetrical pulling force to the stem of such an alpine ski boot, a tension band is passed in several Umlenkrollenpaaren which are mounted symmetrically with respect to the front and rear shells of the shaft.
  • Der vorliegenden Erfindung liegt die Aufgabe zugrunde, einen Schuh, der keine harte Außenschale besitzt, an der Rückseite des Schaftes mit einem Zentralverschluß zu versehen, wobei der Schließmechanismus so ausgebildet werden soll, daß die elastischen Eigenschaften des Schuhschaftes möglichst nicht beeinträchtigt werden. The present invention has for its object to provide a shoe that does not have a hard outer shell, at the rear of the shank with a central closure, wherein the closing mechanism is to be formed so that the elastic properties of the shoe upper as possible not affected.
  • Gelöst wird diese Aufgabe durch die im Kennzeichen des Anspruches 1 angegebenen Merkmale. This object is achieved by the features specified in the characterizing part of claim 1.
  • Durch die vorliegende Erfindung wird sichergestellt, daß die Ristabdeckung auf beiden Schuhseiten von der Sohle her nach unten gespannt wird. By the present invention that the instep cover is tensioned on both sides of the shoe from the sole forth down is ensured. Durch diese Maßnahme und durch die Verwendung einer elastisch biegbaren Ristabdeckung wird eine günstige Druckverteilung über den Rist erreicht, da sich die Ristabdeckung gut an die Ristform anpassen kann. By this measure, and by using an elastically bendable instep cover a favorable pressure distribution is achieved over the instep, as the instep cover can adapt well to the Ristform. Außerdem ergibt sich der weitere Vorteil, daß sich kein Spannelement und kein Verschlußteil über den Rist erstreckt, so daß die Gefahr einer örtlichen Drucküberbeanspruchung nicht besteht. In addition, the further advantage that no clamping element and no closure member extends over the instep, so that the danger of local pressure stress is not obtained.
  • Weitere vorteilhafte Einzelheiten der Erfindung sind in den Unteransprüchen angegeben und werden nachfolgend anhand der in der Zeichnung veranschaulichten Ausführungsbeispiele näher beschrieben. Further advantageous details of the invention are specified in the subclaims and will be described in more detail below with reference to the illustrated embodiments in the drawing.

The insole can form, for example, to the shaft 2 a structural unit. Zu dem gleichen Zweck können auch die Führungsbügel 4 und 5 jeweils eine nach innen in Richtung der Sohlenoberfläche 12 verlaufende Lasche 14 aufweisen. For the same purpose also the guide bracket 4 and 5 each have an inwardly extending in the direction of the sole surface 12 tab fourteenth
  • Das Schuhoberteil besitzt ein vorzugsweise geschlossenes Vorderschuhteil 15 und ist im Bereich des Ristes 16 von einer seitlich relativ weit herunterragenden Ristabdeckung 17 überdeckt. The shoe upper has a preferably closed front shoe part 15 and is covered in the region of the instep 16 of a laterally projecting relatively far down instep cover 17th Das Schuhoberteil besteht zumindest im Bereich des Ristes 16 aus einem volumenelastischen, kompressiblen Material. The shoe upper is composed at least in the region of the instep 16 of a volume-elastic, compressible material. Hierfür sind Kunststoff-Schaumstoffe, wie insbesondere das unter dem Handelsnamen "Neopren" oder auf dessen Basis bekannte Schaumstoffmaterialien oder auch Schaumstoffe aus Polyäthylen, Polyamid oder dgl. besonders geeignet. These are polymer foams, such as in particular the most suitable under the trade name "Neoprene" or on the basis of known foam materials or foam materials made of polyethylene, polyamide, or the like.. Die Ristabdeckung 17 ist aus einem elastisch biegbaren und bevorzugt auch zumindest geringfügig dehnbaren Material gefertigt. The instep cover 17 is made of an elastically flexible and preferably also at least slightly made stretchable material. Beispielsweise besteht dieses elastisch biegbare und auch dehnbare Material aus einem geeigneten Elastomer, das zusätzlich auf einem Gewebe aufkaschiert sein kann. For example, this elastically flexible and stretchable material of a suitable elastomer, which may be additionally laminated onto a fabric. Die Ristabdeckung 17 sollte der Ristform zumindest annähernd angepaßt sein, auch wenn sie den oberen Rist nicht vollständig abdecken muß. The instep cover 17 of the Ristform should be at least approximately matched, even if it does not have to completely cover the upper instep. Auch die Ristabdeckung 17 kann grundsätzlich aus geschäumtem Material bestehen oder eine derart geschäumte Schicht besitzen, wobei der Schäumungsgrad der Ristabdeckung allerdings geringer zu halten ist als der des darunterliegenden Ristes 16. The instep cover 17 may in principle consist of a foamed material or have such a foamed layer, wherein the degree of foaming of the instep cover is, however, to hold less than that of the underlying instep sixteenth
  • Im zusammengesetzten Zustand ist an der Schafthinterseite 18 außen im Bereich oberhalb der Ferse ein Zentralverschluß 19 - der mittlere Teil der Fig. 1 zeigt nur schematisch die Lage dieses Zentralverschlusses - angeordnet, mit dem mindestens ein seilartiges Spannelement 20 gekuppelt ist. . In the assembled state a central shutter 19 is connected to the shaft back 18 outside the region above the heel - the middle part of Figure 1 shows only schematically the location of this central closure - arranged with the at least one rope-like tension member 20 is coupled. Dieses Spannelement 20 verläuft vom Zentralverschluß 19 aus auf beiden Seiten 6, 8 des Schuhes um die Ferse an der Fersenrundung 21 entlang, beispielsweise in einer Führungsrille 3.1 in der Fersenkappe 3 zum Niveau-Bereich 22 der einzubringenden Innensohle. This clamping element 20 runs from the central closure 19 from on both sides 6, 8 of the shoe around the heel in the heel cup 21 along, for example, in a guide groove 3.1 in the heel cap 3 to the level portion 22 of the introduced insole. Von da aus verläuft das Spannelement 20, ohne den Rist 16 zu kreuzen, über ein auf einem höheren Niveau an der Ristabdeckung 17 am seitlichen Endabschnitt 23 vorhandenes, beispielsweise als Führungsrille ausgebildetes Führungs- oder Umlenkelement 24 zu einem am Führungsbügel 4 bzw. 5 vorgesehenen Fixpunkt - angedeutet durch ein X - oder zu einem äußeren Umlenkelement 25a. From there, the tensioning element 20 extends without crossing the instep 16, at a scheduled over an existing at a higher level at the instep cover 17 at the lateral end portion 23, formed for example as a guide groove guiding or deflecting element 24 on the handlebar 4 and 5 fixed point - indicated by a X - or to an outer deflection element 25a. Dort ist das Spannelement 20 etwa in Höhe des dortigen Niveaus der Innensohle entweder befestigt oder umgelenkt und durch die Schuhsohle, beispielsweise zwischen dem Sohlenteil 1 und der Innensohle oder einer Zwischensohle zur jeweils anderen Schuhseite geführt. There, the clamping element 20 is approximately at the level of the local levels of the insole either attached or deflected and guided by the shoe sole, for example, between the sole part 1 and the insole or midsole to each other shoe side. Auf der anderen Schuhseite, nämlich der Schuhinnenseite 8 ist ein weiteres Umlenkelement 25i im Bereich zwischen Großzehengrundgelenk 10 und etwa der Mitte der Fußwölbung 11 vorgesehen. On the other shoe side, namely the medial side 8, a further deflection element 25i in the range of big toe joint 10 and about the middle of the arch 11 is provided. Durch diese konstruktiven Maßnahmen kann die Ristabdeckung 17 von der Sohle her nach unten gezogen bzw. gespannt werden, wenn die Spannlänge des Spannelements 20 durch den Schließteil des Zentralverschlusses 19 verkürzt wird. Due to these constructive measures, the instep cover 17 can be pulled or from the sole forth down tensioned when the span length of the tension member 20 is shortened by the closing part of the central closure 19th Die Ristabdeckung 17 drückt dadurch unter Verdichtung des Schaftmaterials im Ristbereich großflächig und somit mit geringer Flächenbelastung auf den Rist. The instep cover 17 presses characterized by compression of the upper material in the instep region over a large area and therefore having a low surface load on the instep. Hierdurch wird ein guter, sicherer Halt des Fußes im Schuh erreicht, ohne Druckstellen zu erzeugen. This provides a good, secure hold of the foot is achieved in the shoe without creating pressure points. Auch kann der gesamte obere Ristbereich des Schuhes mit einer Oberfläche versehen werden, die vollkommen glatt und frei von irgendwelchen störenden Erhebungen ist. Also, the entire upper instep area of ​​the shoe can be provided with a surface which is perfectly smooth and free from any disturbing projections.
