PATENT OTTIGE.

OF DES MOINES, IOWA.

IMPRovEMENT IN sHoEs.

Specication forming part of Letters Patent No. 173,303, dated February 8, 1876; application filed May 31, 1875.

and also to produce a shoe improved in ap-y pearance, usefulness, and durability. It consists in-cutting the upperin two pieces, so formed relative to each other that straps on the one and lappets on the other will close and it over the instep neatly and conveniently, as

hereinafter fully set forth.

Figure l ot' my'drawing is a plan view, illustrating the form ofthe one piece which makesvone complete side, and also the front ot' the shoe, and the straps'that draw across the instep. A is the complete side; B, the front or toe part required for the opposite side.

(l C is a broken line indicating the center of the complete upper. Nos. 1 and 2 are the straps connected with the side A, and formed thereon by simply cutting out the leatherfrom the spaces marked d d. The broken line f f indicates the form of the second piece required to form the upper complete for a shoe.

Fig. 2 is an outline of the second piece. C is the rear part of one side of a shoe. The broken line g g indicates the lap that will be made when it is joined to the front part B, connected with the complete side A. a b are lappets or ears extending beyond the central line c c, and are in such position relative lto the straps,tNos. land 2, -on the complete side A that they will aid in closing the front of the shoe neatly and completely over the instep vWithout any surplus of leather, and without sewing on any parts.

Fig. 3 is a perspective view of a complete shoe, and illustrates the relative positions of I the parts A B C when joined* as required. 3

and 4 represent buckles attached to the part U, to engage the straps Nos. 1 andr2, extending from the part A. K represents a gore that may be cut from soft leather or cloth, and attachedto the parts A and C, to completely close the space between them when the shoe is unbuckled, and to double and fold over the instep when the shoe is buckled.

My form of uppers is especially designed and adapted for brogans or plow-shoes, generally worn by farmers and miners, but may also be advantageously used for liner shoes. They must be cut in pairs to form rights and lefts,7 and may vary in si'ze and material, as desired.

I am aware that shoe-uppers have been formed of two pieces, in such a manner as to lap over the instep of the wearers foot, and that straps or tucks have been integral parts of the uppers; but I claim that my peculiar manner of shaping and cutting the upper in two pieces and goring the portions designed to lap and close upon each other, and thereby forming the straps 1 and 2, and two corresponding flaps or ears, aand b, to close the shoe tightly over the instep without crimping the leather, and without sewing on flaps and tucks, is a new and valuable improvement.

I claim as my invention-'- In the manufacture ot' a shoe or gaiter, the upper composed of the pattern A B, having the straps 1 and 2 cut of one and the same piece ot' material, in combination with the pattern G, having the ilaps a b integral therewith, substantially as andI for the purposes specied.

WILLIAM HENRY LAND.
