CUSHION HEEL FOR SHOES. APPLICATION FILED OCT. 8. 1919.

1,338,817. Patented May 4, 1920.,

PASQUALE A. DE LUCA, OF NEW YORK, N. Y.

CUSHION-HEEL FOR SHOES.

Application filed October 8,' 1919.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, PASQUALE A. DE LUCA, a citizen of the United States, and resident of New York city, in the county of Kings and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Cushion-Heels for Shoes, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to shoes and particularly to the heels thereof. The object of my invention is to provide a cushion for heels of shoes which will be durable and resilient and which can be adapted to the heel of any shoe by the use of screws or nails and may be easily detached when the shoe has been worn and placed on another shoe for further use. A further object is to provide a construction of shallow depth so that the weight of the parts will not be excessive.

Referring to the drawings which form a part of this specification:

Figure 1, represents the heel of a shoe on an enlarged scale and shown in vertical section to which is attached the construction embodying my invention also shown in vertical section. I Fig. 2, is an inverted plan view of Fig. 1 tiqaken on the lines indicated by thearrows in Fig. 3, is a plan view taken on the same line as Fig. 1.

Fig. 4, is a perspective view of the lower part of the casing viewed from above after the rim has been turned inward as illustrated in Fig. 1.

A indicates the bottom of the heel of the shoe with my construction applied thereto. It is usual to remove one or two of the thicknesses of leather from the heel and to replace that width with the present construction.

B indicates a plate of metal such as brass or an aluminum alloy which is stamped from a sheet of such material and is provided with openings BB, etc., the plate being pressed to form collars CC, etc., around the openings B-B, etc.

These collars serve to stiffen the sheet metal adjacent the openings through which the screws pass, and in the plate D, also serve as a seat for the heads of the screws I-I, etc., and also serve to prevent the walls of the small tubes H-H, etc., from coming too close to the screws.

Specification of Letters Patent.

' underside Patented May 4., 1920.

Serial No. 329,182.

D indicates a plate stamped from the same material as the material indicated by B and is also provided with openings DD,

etc., having collars D -D which are disposed opposite the collars C'C.

. The plate B isalso provided with depressions in the top which form bosses on the of the plate, indicated by E-E-E E, which serve to hold the top ends of the springs FF in position, the bottom ends of the springs being held in position by similar bosses GGG etc., formed on the top side of the plate G shown in Fig. 4.

Small tubes H--H-H, etc., serve to space the plates B and D the proper distance from each other and also to prevent the shifting laterallyof the plate D relative to the plate B. They also serve to prevent the plates from being forced toward each other when the screws or nails'I-I, etc., are driven into the heel in the act of attaching the device to the heel of the shoe. In the present case I have shown screws serving this purpose, said screws being inserted through openings J J, etc., formed in the plate G and disposed opposite the openings D and B in the plates B and D.

Located between plates B and D is a band K which extends all around the heel at a short distance from the sides thereof which serves to support and strengthen the construction, but, if desired, this band could be dispensed with if a sufiic'ient number of tubes H were used and properly located to serve the function of the band K.

The plate G is provided with upwardly extendingside and end walls G -Gr etc., the top edge G of which is turned inward all around the top and overlapping the outer edge of the plate D, the walls Gr serving to guide the plate D in its relative vertical movement within the casing formed by the plate G and the walls G The plate D is provided with openin s LL, etc., through which the springs extend.

M indicates a strip of flexible leather or rubber or other suitable material which is cemented under the base of the portion tached a layer of rubber or leather N which may be attached by means of cement or in any other suitable manner.

he operation of the device is as follows: Pressure being applied to the heel from above, the plate D and parts above it are carried together downward against the pressure of the springs F the distance that the plate D is spaced from the plate G, thus forming a cushion action. When the pressure is removed the spring forces the plates D and G apart the distance corresponding to the height of the wall G on its inner side at which point the outer edge of the plate D contacts with the underside of the rim G and lifts the casing formed by the walls G together with the bottom layer of material N attached thereto.

It will be seen from the foregoing that the parts constituting the elements employed may be easily and cheaply made and that the article can be provided for sale as a separate and new article of manufacture.

Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Let ters Patent: s

1. A cushion for heels comprising a plate adapted to be attached to the heel of a shoe, a second plate spaced therefrom and firmly held in relative fixed position thereto and means for spacing said plates; a casing suspended from and carried by one of said plates and a cushion located between said first named plate and said casing for the purpose specified.

2. A cushion for heels comprising a plate adapted to be attached to the heel of a shoe, a second plate spaced therefrom and firmly held in relative fixed position thereto andmeans for spacing said plates; a casing suspended from and carried by one of said plates and a cushion located be tween said first named plate and said casing, and a layer of wearing material connected with the bottom of said casing.

A cushion. for heels comprising a plate adapted to be attached to the heel of a shoe, a second plate spaced therefrom and firmly held in relative fixed position thereto and means for spacing said plates; a casing suspended from and carried by one of said plates and a cushion located between said first named plate and said casing, and a strip of flexible material extending around the edges of the plates.

4. A cushion for heels comprising a plate adapted to be attached to the heel of a shoe, said plate having openings therein, each of which is surrounded by a collar;

a second plate spaced therefrom and firmly held in relative fixed position thereto and means for spacing said plates; a casing'suspended from and carried by one of said plates and a cushion located between said first named plate and said casing.

5. A cushion for heels comprising a plate adapted to be attached to the heel of a shoe and having downwardly extending bosses formed therein; a second plate spaced therefrom and firmly held in relative fixed position thereto; a casing suspended from and carried by one of said plates, the base plate of said casing having upwardly extending bosses formed therein andsprings extending from the bosses formed on the upper plate and to the bosses on the lower plate.

6. A cushion for heels comprising a plate adapted to be attached to the heel of a shoe, said plate having bosses formed integral therewith, and openings therein, and second plate spaced therefrom and firmly held in relative fixed position thereto and means for spacing said plates; a casing suspended from and carried by one of said plates and a cushion located between said first named plate and said casing.

7. A cushion for heels comprising a plate adapted to be attached to the heel ofa shoe and having downwardly extending bosses formed therein, and openings therein, each of which is surrounded with a collar; and a second plate spaced therefrom and firmly held in relative fixed posi-- tion thereto and means for spacing said plates; acasing suspended from and carried by one of said plates and a cushion located between said first named plate and said casing.

Signed at New York city in the county of New York and State of New York this month of October A. D. 1919.
