ELASTIC SHOE LACE. APPLICATION FILED MAY 24. 1920.

Patented N W 16, 1920.

BENJAMIN r. Kitten min ear/tuna scrinnsrnenn, an, on natives, cononano.

SHUE-LACE.

Application file-I1 ill-lay at, 1920.

To all whom it may concern LAM and SAMUEL Sonnnsmonn, Jn, citizens of the llnited States, residlng at Denver, in

the county of Denver and State of Colorado,

have invented certain new and useful lmprovements in Elastic Shoe-Laces and Fastelling-Clips Therefor, of which the following is aspecilication, reference being had to the accompanying drawings.

This invention relates to an improved elastic shoe lace, a fastening clip therefor and method of lacing and method for using the lace, and an object is to provide an article and method of this character to obviate the lacing of a shoe every time it is worn avoiding tying knots and eliminating loose, straggling ends, and the possibility of the lrnots becoming untied and avoiding unlacing of the shoe at night.

Another object is to provide means for holding the opposite parts of an upper of a shoe yieldably laced, thereby avoiding the elastic inserts which have been used in the opposite sides of the upper and yet at the same time to provide a lace which has the appearance of a hand laced shoe and yet permit the shoe to be pulled on and off without unlacing or lacing the shoe.

Still .another object is to provide a shoe lacing device of this character which will permit the shoe to betaken off or put on in a relatively short time andto hold the upper of the shoe so that it will accommodate itself to the foot and the ankle, particularly the latter in all positions thereof.

A further object is to provide a shoe lacing device of this character which can be applied to all styles of shoes, including Oxfords or low cut shoes as well as ladies high top boots and the like, and furthermore to provide a lacing device which will be a very great help to mothers saving them the trouble of lacing shoes on the chilldren, especially those that are not familiar with the process of lacing shoes.

A still further object is the provision of a novel form of clamp or clip to be attached to the terminals or extremity of the elastic lace to hold the lace in position and pre ventit from unlaoing.

While the design and construction at pres ent illustrated and set forth is deemed preferable, it is obvious that as a result of a reduction of the invention to a more practical form for commercial purposes, the in" Specification oi Letters ratent.

Patented El 16, Edi 3th Serial Il'o. 3%,856.

v vention may be susceptible to changes, and Be it known that we, BENJAMIN l. liin.

the right to these changes is claimed, provided they are comprehended within the scope of what is claimed.

. The invention comprises further features and combination of parts, as will be hereinafter set forth, shown in the drawings and claimed.

, In the drawings:--

Figure l is a view, in perspective of a shoe showing the method of lacing the same starting from the bottom of the shoe and passing the elastic lace in and out the vari ous eyelets until the terminals of the lace reach the upper part of the shoe where they are provided with fasteners,

Fig. 2 is an enlarged detail view of one end of an elastic shoe lace showing a clip or clamp as applied thereto,

Fig. 3 is a detail view of the fastener shown in Fig. 2 showing one part of the fastener open, showing how the lace is connected to the other part of the fastener,

Fig.4 is a detail view of the blank formlace shown in Fig. 1 but illustrating in dot-.

ted lines where the lace returns and engages through the -skipped eyelets,

Fig. 6 is an enlarged detail view in elevation of portions. of the opposite sides of an upper showing a modified arrangement of lacing the shoe and in this form a differentform of clip or clamp is employed; and

Fig. 7 is a detail view of the form of clip or clamp shown in F i 6.

Referring to'the drawings 1 designates a conventional form of shoe, the opposite faces of the upper of which are provided with the usual eyelets 2; and 3 denotes an elastic shoe lace to engage through the eyelets. lln order to lace the shoe. the lace is started at the bottom of the shoe in the usual ill? pes'seel thrcugli the ippermesfi; eyeleie 01" f lace, e cl' '"eien" form 0;? clipei elemp is upper, end ie eweviiled with clips or applied.
