Abstract

The invention relates to an item of footwear, particularly an item of sports footwear, e.g. ski boot, cross-country ski boot, hiking footwear or the like. The leg (5) of the item of footwear is made of a textile material and is joined, preferably adhered, to a preformed, for example, extruded toe cap (4), to a, for example, extruded counter (6), and to an anatomically shaped midsole (2), above all when a watertight item of footwear is desired.

Description

Shoe, in particular sports shoe

The invention relates to a shoe, especially a sports shoe such as a ski boot, cross-country skiing shoe od. The like., The stem has a front and a rear cap.

Conventional shoes are constructed so that the outer material, eg leather or other material that is lasted over a last, to which a more or less flat sole is glued. In this case, uss a footbed are inserted into the shoe in order to realize the natural shape of the foot in its three-dimensionality. The upper is generally punched from sheet material that is brought by appropriate / darts, but mainly through a transformation process at the lasting operation, in the three-dimensional shape of the last. Work is carried out with more or less force. As a result of the jerk subfund of shaft and lining materials, the final internal volume of the shoe is difficult to control because the material may shrink if the stem to just fit the strips or the volume may be too far if the stem is not strong enough on the afford tweaked. Different volume between the left and right shoe and from pair to pair are not uncommon.

are also known constructions in which Textilbrandsoh- len sewn to the shaft (Strobl-style). This can achieve a certain three-dimensionality of the heel (heel ball) and the joint. Such insoles are soft and cuddly as a rule and can therefore miss a sufficient torsional stiffness.

There are also combinations in which the forefoot Strobel and the rear shoe part is provided with a hard, flat half insole.

The / heel height is mounted in all the constructions in the form of an intermediate or outer sole outside the insole.

If an anatomically molded footbed is desired, this is normally inserted in the form of a more or less shaped insole subsequently into the shoe. About the value of such anatomical insoles can argue, as they are often made for reasons of cost of unstable materials such as EVA.

Object of the present invention is to provide a shoe of the type mentioned, avoiding the listed disadvantages of the known shoes, in which a scalloped shape is achieved.

This object is achieved in that the shoe is made of a multi-part system, wherein the shaft with preformed toe and heel parts connected, is preferably glued. In an adhesive bond, a waterproof shaft is achieved.

According to a further feature of the invention, the top and the heel portion of the stem each consist of a three-dimensional, corresponding to the shape of the last part, which is manufactured as a plastic injection-molded part. Characterized a plurality of stiffness of the moldings can be produced.

Preferably, the shoe construction of three parts, namely a toe, a heel counter and a wedge, which parts are adapted to a strip and are mutually connected preferably by adhesive bonding. This shoe design has the advantage that a conversion of shoe parts from a two-dimensional, is no longer required in a three-dimensional shape, as was previously the case, so that a force effort or distortion is no longer necessary. Instead of the bonding, also any seam can, of course, especially if no waterproof shoe is required to be used.

According to another feature of the invention in the forefoot an insole can be sewn.

According to a further feature of the invention, the possibility to adhere the forefoot area over a conventional insole is conventionally (adhesive Pinching).

By the measure according to claim 5, a particularly comfortable shoe is achieved.

A further advantage is given by the measure according to claim 6, and the measure according to claim. 7

The measure of claim 8 is a stepless transition between the wedge and the shaft is achieved.

Finally, the measure according to claim 9 contributes to an advantageous embodiment of the shoe.

Further features of the invention will be explained in more detail with reference to the drawings, in which embodiments of the shoe structure according to the invention shown in simplified form.

Show it:

1 shows an embodiment of the shoe in longitudinal section.

Figure 2 is a cross-section of the shoe in the heel area.

Fig. 2A is a variant of the embodiment of FIG. 2;

Fig. 3 shows a further variant;

Figure 4 is a cross-section of the shoe according to the invention in the toe region, the simplicity of the outer shaft and the outsole are omitted.

FIG. 4A is a variant of the embodiment of Fig. 4;

Fig. 5 shows a variant of the embodiment of FIG. 1;

Figure 6 is a cross-section of the shoe of Figure 5 in the heel region..; and

Fig. 7 shows a further variant of the embodiment of the shoe of FIG. 1.

In Fig. 1, 1 designates a last and a wedge 2, which is anatomically shaped and is located in the heel area. The wedge 2 replaces an insole and extends up to the bale. In wedge 2, the sale is integrated, the height of the usual shoes and corresponds ensures the necessary Torsionsstei- stiffness. To obtain a general stability of the shoe, such wedges can be molded from hard foam and similar materials, or preferably formed. The upper contour of which corresponds to the anatomical shape of the foot and is equipped for this purpose with a heel cup and a longitudinal arch. This creates a relatively high lateral edge. The bottom surface of the wedge 2 can be made flat, or having a desired contour. The lateral edge forms a relatively smooth surface which has an edge at the transition to the bottom surface. It is also possible to incorporate in the side surface of a step as positioning edge for a shaft 5, which may consist of a sheet material and in the heel region up to the bale, so in the area where it is not sewn to an insole or bonded to the side surface the wedge 2 is bonded. Thus, the conventional lasting operation is replaced.

The tip portion of the shoe construction is formed by a front cover 4 and the heel part by a heel cap 6, three-dimensionally shaped caps which, for example, are injected and connected to the shaft 5 along the surfaces 7 and 8, preferably adhesively bonded, are.

Since both of the wedge 2 and the front and rear cap 4 and 6 are made of molded parts, these parts fit exactly and are unnecessary any deformation.

In the forefoot area of ​​the wedge 2 is connected to the front cover 4 by an insole 3 which either by a Strobel seam od 9 or by gluing. Like. Is connected.

The volume of the shoe minutest detail and controllable.

As outsole a shell sole, not shown, which constructed exactly according to the pre-formed parts used, in the forefoot area with the sewn or adhesively bonded insole 3 and the shaft 5, in the rear region to the underside of the wedge 2 and adhered to the sides with the shaft 5, ,

This design allows for efficient production of shoes without the use of expensive equipment and difficult, difficult to control operations. The interior volume is true and make precisely controlled, whereby an anatomical appearance surface is ensured. By combining Strobel or gezwicktem forefoot and wedge in the joint and the heel area, the flex zone may be perfectly positioned, the torsional stiffness can be precisely defined and controlled.

In the inventive design ensures that the fit exactly corresponds to the volume of the last and assembly errors are reduced to a minimum, which occur not fit differences between left and right shoe or from pair to pair.

The inventive design high torsional stiffness of the shoe can be reached. In addition, the flexibility of the shoe in the ball area is controllable.

Of course, various structural embodiments may be selected as part of the invention.

Thus, FIG. 2 shows an embodiment having an outer shank 19 and an outsole 10, wherein the heel height of the wedge shape of the foot heel 2 of the anatomical is adjusted, and a height H has. In this embodiment, the wedge bottom 2 'kontu- riert, and bonds the outsole 10 with the outer shaft 19 of the rear cap 6 and the wedge. 2 in the embodiment of Fig. 2A, in contrast, is connected to the outer shaft 19 by a seam 12, the outer sole 10, which is provided with a Ausgitterung. 11 The connection by a seam is preferably provided on both sides of the shoe.

In the embodiment of Fig. 3 of the wedge 2 is provided with a recessed section 11 for lateral positioning of the stem 5.

FIG. 4 shows an embodiment in which the front cover 4 to the shaft 5 and the insole 3 by an overlapped section 7 'or 3' is bonded.

In the embodiment of Fig. 4A, the front cover 4 is merely adhesively bonded to the shaft 5 by an overlapped section 7, while the connection to the insole 3 by a Strobel seam 9.

FIGS. 5 and 6 illustrate a variant embodiment with the wedge 2 inside applied rear cap 6 and a front cover 4. In this variant, all adjacent to the wedge 2 parts, in this case the insole 3 and the rear cap 6, not from the outside or below but make mutually connected. This measure ensures for the same technical function, a weight saving and improved assembling possibility.

For improved Flex the insole 3 on the bottom is additionally grooved transversely to Fußlängsachse.

The embodiment illustrated in FIG. 7 shows a continuous, applied to the wedge 2 Fire sole 3.

In this variant, the wedge 2 and the insole 3 are not vertically but horizontally separated. The advantage of this design lies in the continuity of the insole 3. The function of the foot bed and Vorfußflexes is therefore only a part of the insole 3, controllable. The wedge 2 takes over the function of the high torsional rigidity.
