snow SHOE.

' APPLICATION FILED JAN. 14, 1911. 1,004,900, Patented 0015.3,1911.

I ,0 Ely/11 ALBERT JUDSON PEASE, OF PHILLIPS, MAINE.

SNOW-SHOE.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, ALBERT J. PLEASE, a citizen of the United States, residing at Phillips, in the county of Franklin and State of Maine, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Snow-Shoes, of which the following is a specification- This invention relates to certain new and useful improvements in snow shoes, the object being to improve the general construction of the same and to provide a snow shoe which is more durable than shoes now in use.

A still further object of my invention is to provide a metal bar in connection with the flesh bar, whereby a portion of the flesh bar which is now engaged by the feet of the wearer will be engaged by the metal bar, in such a manner that sagging of the same is prevented which also prevents the loosening of the net work of rawhide.

Another object of my invention is to provide a bar with teeth so as to form a calk, whereby the shoe will be prevented from slipping longitudinally or transversely when traveling over a crust.

Another object of my invention is to provide a bar with means for attaching the securing strap thereto, whereby the wear will be decreased.

With these objects in View, the invention consists in the novel features of construction, combination and arrangement of parts, hereinafter fully described and pointed out in the claims. I

In the drawing forming a part of this specification :Figure 1 is a top plan View of a snow shoe constructed in accordance with my invention. Fig. 2 is a perspective View of the metallic bar detached. Fig. 3 is an elevation of the same. Fig. A is a section taken on line A A of Fig. 3.

In the drawing A indicates the frame'of the shoe which is preferably formed of a single piece of ash having its ends bent together and secured by rivets A as clearly shown which forms the heel of the shoe. The side bars of the frame thus formed are connected together by ash bars B and C which holds the frame in its proper position and also forms a support for the net work of rawhide or any other suitable material. Connected to each of the side bars of the frame is a flesh bar D which is preferably formed of hide and has its inner end Specification of Letters Patent.

Application filed January 14, 1911.

Patented Oct. 3, 1911.

Serial No. 602,639.

secured in an eye formed in the end portion of my improved bar E which is slightly concave to receive the foot.

The bar E is preferably an angle bar as clearly shown, and the lower edge is formed with teeth E forming calks adapted to embed themselves within the crust of the snow, and said bar is provided with web portions E which prevents the shoe from slipping sidewise. The bar is provided with reduced rounded end portions having eyes in which the ends of the flesh bar are secured, which also forms means for attaching the securing straps used for holding the foot in position thereon.

In the concaved portion of the bar, a series of openings are formed along its edge which are reduced to form string receiving portions G in which the strings of hide forming the net work H are adapted to be secured in such a manner that they will be held below the wearing surface of the bar so that when the foot is placed thereon, the strings will not be subjected to any wear.

The bar C carries a toe piece I, and is connected to the flesh bars by strings as clearly shown in the drawing in the manner of constructing a Canadian snow shoe to which my improved bar is especially adapted to be connected.

While I have shown and described the bar used in connection with a shoe constructed in this particular manner, it of course is understood that the bar could be used in connection with various makes of shoes. By connecting the ends of the flesh bars to a metal bar arranged at the center of the shoe at the point where the bar is subjected to the greatest amount of wear, the life of the shoe will be increased, and at the same time a very firm support is formed for the foot which will not sag when wet and loosen the net work which is the case with shoes as now constructed.

WVhat I claim is 1. A support'for snow shoes, said support being provided with calks, and having webs adapted to prevent sidewise movement of said shoe.

2. The combination with a snow shoe, of a bar having a concaved portion adapted to receive the foot, calks formed upon the edge of said bar, and adapted to prevent slipping movement in a longitudinal direction, and webs carried by said bar and adapted to prevent slipping movement in a line at right-angles to the longitudinal length of said shoe.

3. A concave angled foot support for snow shoes, having a serrated edge and provided with Web portions.

4. A concave angled foot support for snow shoes having reduced apertured ends, said support being provided With perforations and a serrated edge.

5. A foot support for snow shoes comprising an angled end havingreduced apertured ends, one flange of said bar being provided With a series of perforations having cut out portions communicating therewith, the other edge of said bar being serrated, and Webs connecting the flanges of said bar.
