Description

VICTOR MAY, 0F CHICAGO, ELLINOS.

BESILENT Specification of Letters Fatent.

Application filed October 2, 1913. Serial No. 792,932.

To aZl whomI t may concern.'

Be it known that I, Vic'ron MAY, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of the city of Chicago, county of Cook, and State of lllinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Resilient Heels, ot' which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to improvements in resilient heels and has for its object the provision of a construction of this character which is of simple construction, eiiicient in use and capable ot being readily adjusted to compensate for wear and rene al when worn out.

The invention consists in the combinations and arrangements of parts hereinafter described and claimed.

lThe invention will be best understood by reference to the accompanying drawing forming a part of this specification, and in which, f

Figure l is a longitudinal section taken through a heel embodying my invention, 2, a section taken on line m-m of Fig. l, Fig. 3, a perspective view of a metallic socket-member employed in the construction, Fig. 4, a longitudinal section ot a heel illustrating the same when adjusted to compensate for wear, and Fig. 5, a section taken at right angles to Fig. 4.

ri`he preferred form of construction as illustrated inA the drawing comprises a cylindrical metallic socket-member l which is adapted to be secured within a suitable socket provided in the heel 2 of .a boot or shoe. An air passage 3 leads from the inner side ot' the socket in the heel to the interior ot' the boot or shoe and permits free access of air to prevent the formation of a vacuum therein which would interfere with the resi liency of the construction. The sides of the socket-member l are provided with perforations il and the inner end of said socketmember is provided with la. large central ope-ning 5 surrounded by a supporting fla nge as shown. Socket-member l is secured in position in the heel 2' by means of tangs (l which are formed in the sides of said Socke member' and which arc forced outwardly into the heel after said socket' member is placed in position as indicated in 5. At its outer edge socket-member l is provided with an outwardly extending lip or .flange 7 fitting against the bottom or the heel which serves to reinforce the construcbut desire to avail mysel" oit such variations slightly from the heel 2 as indicated in Fig.,

l. T he perforations in the sides 'of socketmember i assist in retaining ad 8 in position and also increase the resi iency of said' pad due to the tact that the rubber is tree to expand outwardly into openings 1las will he readily understood. Central opening 5 also adds to the resiliency ot the pad by pen mitting expansion thereof into said opening. By ni king the pad and socket-member lindrical in form, said pad may 're-nad from said socket-member and at i "ci gularly therein so as to compensa.KP cvenness of wear. nWhen the pro i portion or" thepad has been materially so as to interfere with its eiiiciency, washer 9 is inserted in socket-member l une..JL pad which thus serves to cause l pad to protrude from said socket me v I ciently to perform its functions. ther wear additional washers or ot increased thickness, may he added to coY ipensate for the wear. Z he specific forni construction illustrated is simple pahle of economical manufacture.

'While l have illustrated and described the preferred 'form of construction for carrying my invention into effect, this is capable of variation and inodiica on withoutdepart ing troni the spirit or the invention. l, therefore, do not 'ish to be limited to the preciso details of construction forth and modifications as orne within scope oilz the appended clai is. I

Having described n claim as and'desire Patent is: g

i. The combination rith a heel having a socket therein, of a. metallic soc zetanember having an openingn in its top surrounded hf a support-ing flange to 4orm an air space and secured in said socket: and removable resilient pad fitting said socket-.acadien substantially as described.

2. The combination with a heel having a socket therein, of a metallic socket-member provided with inwardly exposed perforations in its sides secured in .id socket; and a removable resilieiitl pad ting said socketlll@ y member and arranged to englilge seid per oratiens, substantially as described.

3. The combination Wi'h `@heel having e socket therein, of e metallicsccle-nien'ibei provided with inwardly exposed periierf. tions in its sides and an opening in its beteoin Vsurrounded by a Supperhing flange te forni an uil space and seemed in said socket; end e removable resilient pad fitting' said socket-member, snlJs'entie-lly as described.
