W. PARK GOLF SHOE.

APPLICATION FILED DEC. 2. 19l6.

Patented Oct. 16, 1917.

FGvr/c WILLIAM PARK, or NEW YORK-,' N3 Y! I ooLr-snon Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Oct. 16, 1917.

Application filed December 2, 1916. Serial No. 134,551.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, WILLIAM PARK, a subject of the King of Great Britain and Ireland, residing at New York, in the county of New York and State of New York, have invented certain newand useful Improvements in Golf-Shoes, of which the following is a specification, reference being had therein to the accompanying drawings.

It is the object of the invention to obtain a construction of spiked or studded shoe, which is adapted for a firm foothold when in use and which at the same time permits of walking over a fioor or other hard surface without injury thereto. It is a further object to obtain a construction in which the spikes may be applied to an ordinary golfshoe. To this end the invention comprises the novel construction as hereinafter set forth.

In the drawings:

Figure l is a perspective View of the shoe;

Fig. 2 is a cross-section thereof, showing in dotted lines a position for engagement of the spikes with the ground;

Fig. 3 is a longitudinal section, illustrating the manner of guarding the spikes of the heel when walking;

Fig. 4: is a similar View showing the guarding of the spikes of the toe portion.

A is the upper portion of a shoe of ordinary construction. B is the sole and C the heel thereof. D are studs or spikes which are engaged with the sole of the shoe along opposite sides thereof, having a collar or shoulder E bearing against the bottom of the sole and a downwardly-projecting portion F. To guard these spikes from injuring a floor, there is arranged between the same a guard member G, which is of a thickness slightly in excess of the length of the downward projections of the spikes, and which is provided with bevel edges H, permitting of engaging said spikes when the foot is turned. The guard member G is tapered toward the toe of the shoe and extends preferably to the forward end of the sole, so that in the ordinary act of walking the forward as well as the rear spikes are held out of contact with the floor.

The heel C- of the shoe is provided with similar spikes H on opposite sides thereof, with a guard member I similar to the member Gr arranged therebetween, said guard member being tapered toward the rear and extending to the rear edge of the heel. In addition to these spikes there is a row of spikes J extending transversely of the forward portion of the heel.

lVith the construction as described, in use, in the ordinary actof walking the shoe is tilted upon the heel and toe, as indicated in Figs. 3 and 4:. In each of these positions the spikes are held from contact with the hard floor by the guard members I and G, as long as the foot is not turned sidewise. WVhen it is desired to obtain a firm foothold, by tilting the shoe sidewise either inwardly or outwardly the studs of the lower side will be brought into engagement with the ground; also where standing upon soft ground the guard members G and I will be pressed therein, permitting of engagement of the studs.

lVhat I claim as my invention. is

1. A golf-shoe, comprising a series of studs extending longitudinally of the sole at one side thereof, said studs being independently and separately secured thereto and projecting downwardly therefrom, and a guard-strip of a thickness as great as the projection of the studs extending substantially parallel thereto, said guard-strip being nearer the center of the sole.

2. A golf-shoe, comprising a series of studs extending longitudinally of the sole at one side thereof, said studs being independently and separately secured thereto and depending therefrom, and a guard strip of a thickness equal to the length of the depending portions of the studs, said guard strip extending parallel and adjacent thereto nearer the center of the sole and being provided with a beveled edge.

3. A golf-shoe, comprising a sole having series of downwardly projecting studs extending longitudinally parallel to the opof the latter, and a guard-strip adjacent to said studs nearer the center of the sole.

5. A golf shoe in accordance With claim 4 and with the addition that the guard strip extends forward of the studs.

In testimony whereof I affix my signature.

WILLIAM PARK.

posite sides thereof and independently andseparately secured thereto, and an intermediate guard-strip of a thickness no less than the projection of the studs.-

4. A golf-shoe, comprising a series of studs extending longitudinally of the sole at one side thereof, means for securing said studs to said sole permitting of the flexing Copies of this patent may be obtained for five cents each, by addressing the Commissioner of Patents,

. Washington, D. 0.
