I .I-IEEL FOR FOOTWEAR Application filed October 11, 1919. Serial No. 330,129

T 0 all whom tjnay concern:

Be it known that I, \VILLrAM Josnrn SELLARS, a citizen of the Dominion of'New Zealand, and resident of 213 Tinakori'road, Vellington, in th King of Great Britain and Ireland, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Heels of Footwear, of which'the following is a specification.

Thisinvention relates to foot wear having detachable heels or pads, which are provided for the purpose of enabling the heels to be easily and quickly repaired, and also to insure greater comfort to the wearer than when ordinary solid fixed ,heels areused.

Hitherto detachable heels ancbpads have been secured on'boots and shoes chiefly by the use of screws andbolts, which involve the use of tools in their fixing-on and removal from boots and shoes. Moreover apart fromthe fact that suitable tools are not always available, such detachable portions do not provide sufficient resiliency to insure comfort, besides which ings when said detachable portions become worn cause discomfort to the wearer.

"The object of" thepresent invention is to provide a detachable heel portion which can be readily placed on and removed from either of apair of boots or shoes by any ordinary person, without the aid of tools, and which at the same timeandwhetheror not rubber is employed providesa degreeof resiliency in the heel, sufficient to give great comfort to the wearer when walking.

The invention. consists in providing"a plate of the same shape as'theheel, with an inturned flangeto form. a groove around its curved edge, said plate being: either a fixture on theboot. or shoe or removable with the detachable portion thereof, and engag ing a plate or a lifteither removable with said detachrble portionor a fixture on the boot orshoef I q The detachable portion is .attachedto the fixed portion by slidingfthe former horizontally on to the latter, and causing the grooved plate to taketheother plate or lift either from the front or rear of the heel.

Provincial District of 'WVellington, New Zealand, a subject of the the fasten- The plates are curved or hollowed so that 7 when both are used their edges except at the w front ofthe heel rest one on the other, or

when only the grooved plate is employed the edge of the latter presses against the. edge of the lift, except at the heelfront,'whereby in both cases a space is left inside the heel, which enables the spring of the plates-to provlde resiliency when walking. Holes in "one plate and projections onthe otherjplate, and lugs at the frontof the grooved plate enable the detachable portions to be securely held tothe fixed portions, whlle permitting the former to be easily slipped off by hand, when required.

The invention; will be more particularly described with reference to the accompanym drawing, in which i r igure 1 is a side elevation of a heel according to this invention.

, Figs. 2 and 8 showfby means of cross sectional'views alternative forms of theheel.

Fig. t is a plan view of a plate with an inturned edge;

Figs. 5 and 6 are a plan view and a sec- "tional view through 6-6 Fig. 5 respectively of a plate suitable for carrying a detachable rubber portion.

'Theinvention is carriedintoefliect by proj viding two heel portions, a'portion 1, a fixture ona boot or-sh'oeq2, a portion 3 to take the wear. s A

A metal plate 4 the same shape 'asfthe heel, is provided with an inturned' flange to Figs. 11 and 12 are similar views to Figs.

nd a detachable V able portion'3, the inturned edge of. said A plate 7 shaped to lit inside the grooved plate, 4, can be either removable with the detachable portion 3 (F ig. 2) or a fixtureon the portion 1 8).

NVhen the grooved plate 4 is secured to the portion 1 as in Fig. 2, the plate 7 at tached to the detachable portion 8 is slid into said plate 4, from the front of the heel,

1 and when the plate"? is attached tot-he por-* tion 1 as in F ig. 3, the plate 1 attached to the detachable portion sis slid on to the plate .7 from the back of the heel, spaces being provided in each case between the plate 7 andthe portion to which it isattached to 15 gage'theedge of the' plat'e 7. V

In the case of, a leather .heel,'where it is,

enable the flanged edge of the plate a to en desiredto use only a grooved plate'et, (Figs.

9 to 12), the latter can be attached to either the portionl or the detachable portion 3.

In the forrnencase the top lift 8 of the detachable portion '3 (Fig. 10) is slightly raised around itsedges, and slid lnto' the.

from the front 6 of the heel.

groove plate 4 is attached to thedetach- (hen the plate is slid from the back of theheel between two lifts 9 of the fiXGClPOItlOI1-1,S211Cl V lifts 9 being prised slightly apart to permit lthrough the plate, 7 rubber (Figs. 2 and 3), or as illustrated in this being done. 1 r WVhen; the detachable portion 3' is of rubber it is molded on toeither: the plate at or 1 as is required. One way ofattaching the rubber to either theplate 51 or 7. is bylmeans of a large headed rivet .11 projecting and embedded in the Figs. 5' and 6 by riveting a smaller curved plate 12 to the plate 7, embedded in the. rubber. to make cuts 13 intheplate tas'shown in Fig. 7, and bend the cut portions .14 down which plate 12 is ward, the latter being embedded in the rubber.

.The detachable portions when of leather is attached to either-plate as.required,-by

.15 (Figs. 2, 3'and a V I ,To obtain resiliency in the heel, both the plates & and 7 are curved orrhollowed and f 1 and 8 so that when fitted together their the fr edg s;

The. plate 4, or 7 when either is used on the fixed portion 1 is-secured thereto by nails are attached to the portions edges excepting meet, leaving a. space: 16 between the; plates, the spring in: the plates providing the resiliency.

; When the plate 4; alone is usedthelattefs hcurved edge, excepting at the front of the heel, pressesa'gainst the edge of thetop'lift 8 of the portion 3 (Fig. 10), or against the edge of the bottom 'lift 9 of the portion 1, (Fig. 12 leaving the space 16 between the portions 1' and? as before, a M j To retain the portion 3 onthe portion 1 A further-way is 7 plate, the central either of the plates 4 or 7 can have projec tionsl? thereon, to spring into holes 18 r in the opposite 'pla te, when the two plates are fitted together, clearan'cespaoes 19being provided above or below the. holes 18 as required in order thatlthe projections" 17 will not counteract .the spring of the plates and prevent resiliency being obtained.

9. to 12,. a front edge of said plate, and when the latter is slid on to a'lift'of the portion 1 from the backof the heel, the projection 20 is turned upward against the front of the portion 1.

lVhen the upper lift of the detachable portion 3 is slid intothe plate 1; attached to the portion '1', fromjthe front of the heel the projection 2 turned; downward against, the front of the portion 3-.

The lepth' offlthe detachable portion 8:

Where the plate t'alone is'used, as in Figs. projection 20 is provided at the can be varied,and if desired it. can be made 1 equal to the full depthof; the heel and; be attached to the heel portion of the sole of the boot orshoe by any of the means before described. V
