DETACHAIBLE DANCING-SOLE.

Specification of Letters Patent.

' Patented Nov. 1, 1921.

Application filed December 3, 1920. Serial No. 427,970.

To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, THOMAS S. HAMILTON, a citizen of the United States, residing at Kansas City, in the county of Jackson and State of Missouri, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Detachable Dancing-Soles, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to detachable dancing soles for shoes, and it comprises a body portion of suitable material such as fabric, cellulose composition, and the like, shaped to fit the sole of the shoe, one face or surface being provided with suitable means,-suc.h as a layer of adhesive, whereby the sole may be attached to a shoe, and a layer of lubricent or anti-friction material arranged on the outer surface of the sole; all as more fully hereinafter set forth and as claimed.

In dancing in houses which are not provided with ball rooms or dancing floors, it is necessary to wax the floor, or otherwise treat it, to make it sufliciently slippery to permit enjoyable dancing. The. dance floors of public amusement places where dancers v go out on the grounds of the park between dances are frequently covered with dirt or grit, tracked onto the floor by the dancers, which makes dancing very diflicult.

In the present invention, I have produced a detachable sole which may be applied to any type of shoe, which has an outer surface provided with a lubricant or other antifriction substance to permit. dancing on the ordinary floors of private homes, and to facilitate dancing on the floors of public parks and other places when the floors have become dirty and lost their slippe'riness.

In the present construction, I provide a detachable sole made of fabric, paper, cellulose composition, or the like, having its inner surface provided with adhesive or similar means whereby the sole may be readily attached to an ordinary shoe and having an outer surface of lubricant or other anti-friction substance to decrease the friction between the floor and the sole of the shoe when dancing. When the use of the sole is no longer desired, it may be readily detached by inserting a knife or other instrument between it and the permanent shoe sole to separate a portion of the sole from the shoe and it may then be readily removed by pulling.

In the accompanying drawings, I have shown one embodiment of the invention. In this showing,

Figure 1 is a perspective View of a shoe showing the detachable dancing sole attached.

Fig. 2 is a sectional view of the detachable sole showing a layer of lubricant, and

Fig. 3 is a similar view of the finished sole showing a layer of adhesive on the opposite face.

Referring to the drawings, the reference numeral 1 designates generally a shoe having the usual sole 2. The detachable dancing sole is cut to fit the sole of the shoe and comprises a body portion 3' having a layer of lubricant or other anti-friction material 4 on its outer face and a layer of adhesive 5 on its inner face.

The body portion 3 of the shoe sole may be made of fabric, paper, or any suitable composition such as cellulose compositions. Any material that is sufficiently pliable or flexible may be employed in place of the fabric,.paper, or composition. The sole is made of any suitable thickness, but is best made of such thickness that it can be readily cut by the purchaser to fit various size shoes.

The lubricant composition may be made of any form of wax, graphite, soap stone, magnesium or zinc oxid, or talc. Any other material which is sufficiently anti-fractional or possesses lubricating qualities may be employed in lieu of the substances mentioned. The lubricant in dry form is mixed With a suitable binder such as shellac, silicate of soda, varnish, or the like, and a small portion of an inert substance such as powdered alum. These ingredients are mixed to form a paste or paint which is applied in an even layer to the surface of the detachable sole and a layer of lubricant sprinkled thereon.

The sole is then placed under pressure in a warm press for approximately twenty minutes and then baked in an oven. A layer for this purpose,

dancing on floors which are not waxed or polished and which are not sufficiently slippeny to permit enjoyable dancing with the ordinary shoe sole.

When the user has finished dancing, the detachable sole may be readily removed by inserting a knife or other sharp instrument between the shoe sole 2 and loosening one end of the sole as at 6 (Fig. 1). The end, of the detachable sole may then be grasped in the hand and removed from the shoe.

Instead of applying the layer of lubricant or anti-friction material to the surface of the body portion 3 of the detachable sole, the lubricant maybe homogeneously distributed throughout the body portion during manu' facture. In such instances, the raw composition forming the body portion 3 of the shoe sole is mixed with a suitable amount of lubrioant and the mixture agitated in any suitable manner to homogeneously distribute the lubricant. After the lubricant has been distributed, the composition is finished and hardened in the usual manner and the adhesive applied to one face.

It is tobe understood that while I have described the preferred form of my invention, various changes in the shape, size, and

arrangement of parts may be resorted to without departing from the spirit of the invention or the scope of the subjoined claims.

Having thus described. my invention, I claim: A

1. A detachable sole for shoes comprising a body portion having an anti-frictional surface, and means on the other surface for securing the sole to a shoe.

2. A detachable sole for shoes comprising a body portion having a layer of lubricant on one surface, and means on the other surface for securing the sole to a shoe.

3. A detachable sole for shoes comprising a body portion having an anti-frictional surface, and a layer of adhesive on the other surface of said sole.

i 4. A detachable sole'for shoes comprising a body portion having a layer of lubricant on one surface, and a layer of adhesive on the other surface of said sole.

5. A detachable sole for shoes having a layer of hard lubricant on one surface, and means for securing it to a shoe, said means being arranged on the opposite surface.

6. A detachable sole for shoes having a layer of hard lubricant on one surface, and a layer of adhesive on the other surface of said sole.' i

In testimony whereof I afliX my signature in presence of two witnesses.

THOMAS STEWART HAMILTON.
