of beneiitffrom the cushioning pad. lFurther the thinpiece of if material ll'is of a relatively flexible nature due to the thinness thereof and thus will not cause any discomfort to the wearer, and

will effectually prevent what istermed by orthopedists as oscillating or rotating heel bones which the direct'cause of distorted heel seats in spring heel shoes for children and; crooked heels on shoes worn by adults, this .being accomplished by reason of the fact that a liexible cushion is provided whichwill tend to effectively hold the heel bones in proper anchored position, the heel bonesnot having a tendency to slip or rotate 4within the `heel. of Vthe shoe.
