DETACHABLE ADJU lABLE SLIPPER-STRAR Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Jan. 1, 1918.

Application filed May 14, 1917' Serial No. 188,555.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, CLAUDE MUSE, a citizen of the United States, and resident of St. Louis, in the State of Missouri, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Detachable Adjustable Slipper- Straps, of which the following is a specification, containing a full, clear, and exact description, reference being had to the accom panying drawings, forming a part hereof.

My invention relates to an improved device for holding the slipper on the foot while Walking or dancing, and it consists in the novel construction and combination of parts hereinafter described and particularly pointed out in the claims, found at the end of this specification.

The object of my invention is to provide an improved detachable and adjustable strap for holding on the foot slippers, pumps, and other light foot-wear, while the person Wearing same is walking, or dancing; which will be capable of such adjustment as to fit feet of various sizes; which will prevent the slipper or other foot-covering from bulging at the sides; which will act as a support for the arch of the foot; and which can be put on and removed, whenever desired, in a few moments.

In the drawings,

Figure 1 is a perspective view of my invention in use upon a slipper or pump.

Fig. 2 is an inverted plan-view of a slipper or pump having my invention applied thereto as in practical use, and

Fig. 3 is a perspective view of the invention detached from the slipper or pump, but ready to be applied at a moments notice.

In the present illustration of my invention, I have shown it in the form of a strap made in two sections, 1 and 2, made of leather or any desired material, such as will best match the color of the slipper or pump.

The sections 1 and 2 are detachably and adjustably connected (when in use) after being passed around the slipper and the foot. by means of any common fasteningdevices, such as those here shown, the same being the well-known snap fasteners, one member 3 of which is fixed adjacent the upper end of one section, in the form of the usual socket-element, to be engaged by a series of head or ball members 4, which are fixed upon or carried by the opposite section of the strap, for the purpose of seof my invention, that the strap be practically continuous beneath the sole of the slipper; and I have therefore slidingly or adj ustably connected the lower meeting portions of the said sections 1 and 2 by means of a loop. 5, which embraces both sections and holds them loosely together beneath the sole 6 of the slipper.

Said loop 5 may, of course, be stitched or otherwise fixed to one of said sections, in order that it may not get lost when the strap is not in use.

The said sections 1 and 2'overlap and slide upon each other beneath the sole, the free lower end of the section 2 being passed through a slit 7 in the opposite section, so that the free lower ends of both sections will be next to said sole during use.

The free lower ends of said sections 1 and 2 are each in the present form of my invention) provided with an attaching-device for detachable connection with said sole 6, the said device being in the form of a metallic hook 8 which has an integral shank and Clamping-jaws or wings 9 between which shank and jaws the end of the section is securely clamped by forcing said jaws toward said shank, to secure the hook permanently in position upon the end of the said section.

The operation of the present form of my invention is as follows:

The free ends of the hooks S are inserted in the space between the sole 6 and the upper of the slipper, so that said hooks will embrace the opposite edges of said sole, beneath the arch; and then the upper ends of said sections are pulled tightly around the slipper and the wearers foot, and their upper ends secured by the said snap fasteners. or otherwise secured and adjusted to fit the foot.

It should be obvious that the tighter the pull on the overlapping sections beneath the sole, the more securely will the said hooks 8 grasp the edge of said sole. and the; more firmly will the device be held in position, without possibility of being lost while the wearer is dancing. or walking.

While the constructionherein shown is the one which I, at present prefer, it will of course be understood that changes in the form, construction, and arrangement, of the several parts of my invention may be made by those skilled in the art, without departing from the spirit or scope of the invention.

What I particularly claim'as my invention is the following:

1. A. detachable slipper-strap, comprising sections which are arranged to slide upon each other beneath the sole of the slipper or other foot-covering and to overlap thereat; hooks fixed on the free overlapping ends of said sections, to embrace the opposite edges of the sole of the slipper; and suitable fastening-means for securing the upper ends of said sections.

2. A detachable and adjustable slipper strap, comprising a member which embraces the instep of the wearer and passes around the sole of the slipper; means for adjustably securing the ends of said member after it has been placed in position for use; and metallic hooks secured to said member and adapted to embrace the sole of the slipper or other foot-covering on its opposite edges at the arch.

3. An improved detachable and adjustable slipper-strap, composed of two sections of material which are arranged to slide upon and overlap at a point beneath the sole of the slipper or other foot-covering; a loop through which said overlapping sections slide; metallic hooks fixed on the ends of said overlapping sections and arranged to embrace the edge of said sole, to secure the device to the slipper during use; and suitable fastening means for securing the upper ends of said sections after they have been passed 7 around the foot of the wearer.

4. A slipper-strap constructed with means for fastening its ends at a point above the sole, and having means for clamping the sole of the slipper, to secure the strap to said sole.

5. A slipper-strap adapted to pass beneath the sole of the slipper, and having thereat suitable means for securing said strap to said sole.

6. The combination with a slipper-strap, of fastening-means for uniting the ends thereof, adjacent the wearers instep, and opposite clampinghooks carried by the strap and adapted to clamp the sole of the slipper between them.

7. An improved slipper and pump strap, comprising a suitable strap which is adapted to pass under the sole of the slipper and around the instep of the wearer, and suitable means which secure said strap to said sole during use'of the strap.

8. A slipper-strap having a metallic securingdevice located upon its upper or inner surface, to secure saidstrap to the sole of a slip er or ump.

9. A slipper-strap having oppositely-projecting hooks which slide toward and from each other, to detachably secure said strap to the sole of a slipper or other foot-covering.

In testimony whereof, I have signed my name to this specification, in presence of two subscribing witnesses.
