CHARLES TWEEDIE, OF JEFFERSON CITY, MISSOURI.
SHOE-TONGUE.
To all whom t may concern:
Be it known that I, CHARLES TwnEDm, a citizen of the United States, .and a resident of Jefferson City, in the county of Cole and State of Missouri, have invented anew and useful Improvement in Shoe-Tongues, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to tongues for shoes or boot tops and is shown applied to that type of boot top shown in my Patent No. 1,153,97 7, dated Sept. 21, 1915. This application contains subject-matter divided out of my pending application filed May 17, 1917, Serial No. 169,157.
T he obj ect of the invention is to provide a strong and durable shoetongue simple in construction, and which can be cheaply manufactured. Another object is to make a tongue made up of two parts so shaped that when these parts are secured together, they form a tongue which will conform to the shape of that part of the foot with which it contacts. Another object of the invention is that when used in connection with boot tops, which are intended to be worn over shoes, thek tongue tends to stiften the front of the boot top by reason of its shape, thus dispensing with whalebone or like stifeners in the front edges of the boot top.
The invention consists in the construction and arrangement of parts hereinafter de- Y scribed and claimed.
In the accompanying drawing, which forms part of this specification, and wherein like symbols refer to like parts wherever they occur,
Figure 1 is a side view of a boot top and shoe, the upper part of the boot top being turned back to disclose the tongue;
Fig. 2 is a side View of the tongue detached;
Fig. 3 is a view showing the two parts of the tongue before being secured together;
Fig. 4 is an inside face View of the central portion of the tongue;
Fig. 5 is a horizontal section on the line 5 5 in Fig. 4; and
Fig. 6 is a vertical section taken on the line 6 6 in Fig. 4.
In Fig. 1 of the drawing, my improved tongue 7 is shown applied to a boot top 8 similar to that described in my pending application filed May 17, 1917, Serial No. 169,157. rI`he boot top is adapted to be worn Patented May '7, 1918.
Application led November 28, 1917. Serial No. 204,037.
over a low shoe 9 to simulate the appearance of a high shoe.
The tongue is made of two pieces which are sewed together end to end. Both of these pieces 10 and 11 taper from end to end and can be made of a single thickness or reinforced kand stiffened with a canvas lining or other material pasted or otherwise secured to them. Both pieces 10 and 11 are cut across their adjacent ends in concave lines', as shown in Fig. 3. These concave end portions are turned up and sewed together. The ends are then flattened down and covered with a strip of cloth or other material 12, which is secured to the adjacent end portions of the two parts 10 and 11 of the tongue by a row of stitching in each of its marginal edges. In consequence of the two pieces being sewed together, the tongue is bent crosswise at its middle and is convex or rounded out along its middle for its entire length. The tongue is bound with tape along the top, bottom and one side edge and sewed in place, or when leather material is used, it can be made without the edge binding. The side edge of the tongue, which has no tape, is sewed to the quarter of the boot top 8 along its entire length (see Fig. 1), thereby affording by its shape a substantial stitfening means for the boot top. Vhen used in connection with shoes of the usual type, the tongue is made of a single thickness of leather and does not require any stiffening material. The binding is eliminated and the tongue is attached to the shoe upper at its lower end only.
The foregoing arrangement is considered only as an example and as being the one adapted to the style of boot top shown in the drawings, but the invention is not restricted thereto, as the tongue may be applied to high shoes as well as to various kinds of spats and boot tops.
I claim the following as my invention:
1. A shoe tongue comprising two partsy sewed together end to end, the adjacent ends of said two parts being curved in, whereby said sewed tongue is transversely convex from end to end and bent inwardly at the middle to conform approximately to the shape of the front of the shoe.
2. A tongue for a boot top or the like, said tongue comprising two parts sewed together end to end, the adjacent ends of said two parts being curved in, whereby said sewed tongue is transversely convex from end to end and bent inwardly at the middle to conform approximately to the shape of the front ot the shoe` said tongue being sewed to said boot top along one edge.
3. A tongue for a boot top of the char acter described, said tongue comprising two parts sewed together end to end, the adjacent ends of said two parts being curved in, whereby said sewed tongue is transversely convex from end to end and bent inwardly at the middle to conform approximately to the shape of the front of the shoe, said tongue being reinforced and stilenedwith suitable lining material and sewe'd to said boot top along one edge from end to end.
4. A tongue for a boot top or the like comprising two parts tapering from end to end,
each of said parts being made up of layers of stitl" material and having one of its ends cut across so as to curve in from each side toward the middle, the curved ends of said parts being doubled back and joined to gether, whereby said tongue is transversely convex from end to end and bent inwardly at its joint to conform approximately to the shape of the front portion of the foot, the doubled back edges of the two parts being covered by a strip, said strip being secured to the two parts of the tongue, said tongue being secured to the boot top along one edge from end to end, the other edges of said tongue being bound with tape.
Signed at Jefferson City, Missouri, this 19th day of November, 1917.
