IGNATIUS B. GRIMALDI, OF BROOKLYN, NEYV YORK, ASSIGNOB, BY DIRECT AND MESNE ASSIGNMENTS, OF ONE-EIGHTH T0 LORENZO FALGETTA, O BROOKLYN, NEW YORK. AND ONE-EIGHTH T0 VINCENT IEERRONE.

RUBBER HEEL AND SOLE.

Application filed November 6, 1924. Serial No. 748,036.

This invention relates generally to resilient heels for shoes and boots, the invention having for an object to provide a novel type of resilient heel, the resilient element whereof' may be adjusted when partially worn to bring an unworn part thereof into registry with the back of the heel.

For further comprehension of the inven tion, and of the objects and advantages thereof reference will be had to the following description and accompanying drawing, and to the appended claims in which the various novel features of the invention are more particularly set forth. 7 Fig. 1 of the drawing is a central longitudinal sectional view showing a heel having the invention embodied therein, a portion of the sole to which the heel is attached being also shown.

Fig. 2 is a perspective view showing the metal plate on the sole to which the heel is attached, the heel itself being shown in broken lines.

Fig. 3 is a transverse sectional view taken on the line 3-3 of Fig. 1.

Fig. 4 is an underside plan view of a shoe with a replaceable sole, having the heel of the present invention attached. 0

Referring now to the form of the invention shown in Figs. 1 to 3 of the drawing the heel comprises a main body 10 of leather or other suitable material which is recessed in its rear portion to receive the resilient element. The resilient element, which may be of rubber, is in the fornr of a circular disk 11 of suitable thickness which fits in the recess in the rear end of the main body element, this recess being concaved on its front side to semi-circular curvature to snugly receive the resilient member 11. These parts are mounted on the underside of a plate 12 that has a general contour corresponding to that of the complete heel and which is fastened to the sole element 13 of the shoe by suitable means such as the nails or rivets 50. This plate is fixed on its rear edge with an arcuate strap 51 formed vertically projected lugs 51 that extend across the rear end of the sole element 13 and are formed with apertures through which screws or nails 52 are inserted lengthwise into the sole element. At its frontedge the plate is formed with a projecting flange 53 which, when the plate is applied to the sole, extends in acommon plane with the body of the. plate. Fixed upon the plate 12, and extending around the edge thereof, is channeled semi-circular member 54twith its channel turned inwardly. The side portions of this channeled member may be formed by flanges bent up from the edge of the plate, while the rear portion is in the form of a separate strip 54' riveted on the plate. The disk 11 is formed with a circumferential groove 55, that is preferably'located midway between the top and bottom there of, while the front heel member 10 is formed in its sides with grooves 56, to receive the top flange of the member 54:. In applying the heel to the plate the disk 11 is first inserted in place, being moved along the front of the latter until it abuts against the semi-circular rear portion of the member 54:. It is then secured in place by a screw. 57 inserted upwardly through the centre thereof. The leather heel member 10 is then in like manner inserted in place and secured by the screws 58,while the flange 53 is turned vertically as shown in Fig. 2 to engage over the front edge of the said heel member and nails such as 59 are driven through the apertures 60 in the flange 53 and longitudinally in the said heel member. By forming the groove midway of the height of the disk the latter may be reversed, or turned upside down, as well as angularly adjusted.

In the form of the invention shown in Fig. i the resilient heel member 11 of the type described may be combined with a resilient sole section, indicated at 49. This sole section is preferably of a perfect oval contour and is set into a complementary recess in the leather sole, thus permitting it to be reversed in position when worn along one edge.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to protect by Letters Patent of the United States is as follows 1. The combination in a shoe heel, of a plate formed with a channeled member, with its channel turned inwardly. a resilient element formed with a circumferential groove to receive the top flange of the channeled member, a body formed with side grooves to receive the top flange of the channeled member, said plate having a front proecting flange, which when turned up holds the said resilient element and body in place, and meansfor attaching the heel to a shoe.

2. The combination in a shoe heel, of a plate formed with a channeled member, with its channel turned inwardly, and having the general contour corresponding to that of a complete heel, a resilient element formed with a circumferential groove to receive the top flange of the channeled member, a body formed with side grooves to receive the top flange of the channeled member, said plate having a front projecting flange, which when turned up holds the said resilient element and body in place, and means for attaching the heel to a shoe.

3. The combination in a shoe heel. of a plate formed with a channeled member, with said resilient element and body in place, and means for attaching the heel to a shoe, whereby the resilient member may be angularly adjusted, and turned upside down to allow wear on both sides.

4. The combination in a shoe heel, of a plate formed with a channeled member, with its channel turned inwardly, and having the general contour corresponding to that of a complete heel, a circular disk resilient element formed with a circumferential groove to receive the top flange of the channeled member, a heel main body formed with side grooves to receive the top flange of the channeled member and recessed in its rear portion to receive the resilient element, said plate having a front projecting flange, which when turned up holds the said resilient element and body in place, and means for attaching the heel to a shoe, whereby the re s lient member may be angularly adjusted, and turned upside down to allow wear on both sides.

In testimony whereof I have aflixed my signature.
