ARCH SUPPORT FOR SHOES Filed Feb. 17. 1932 Zmventon BRUCE H.CROMPTON Patented Mar. 27, 1934 ARCH SUPPORT FOR SHOES Bruce H. CromptonjColumbus, Ohio, assignor to The H. C. Godman Company, Columbus, Ohio,

a corporation of Ohio Application February 17, 1932, Serial No. 593,434

1 Claim. (Cl. 36-71) Shoes, nowadays, are usually made in one of two common types, the Goodyear welt or the Me- Kay. In both varieties the sole is of two parts, the outer sole and the inner sole, both being of relatively thick leather and so sewed that no access can be had between the soles except by a destructive cutting of at least one of them. What is termed a sock lining or slip sole is used in shoes having the McKay type of sole to cover the stitches connecting the inner and outer soles. Such a sock lining is not necessary in shoes having the Goodyear welt because no stitching is present at the top of the inner sole. In carrying out my invention a sock lining will be used in the Goodyear welt shoe and in the McKay the usual sock lining is present. Sock linings are merely pasted on top the inner sole and are easily removable and replaceable at any time without destruction of the shoe.

The object of the present invention is to provide a support for the metatarsal arch in the form of a resilient button interposed between a sock lining and the inner sole so that if the purchaser or wearer of the shoe needs no such support the sock lining can be removed, the support detached and lining immediately replaced in the shoe without the support. In other words all the shoes sold to a dealer can have therein my arch support which can be removed or left in according to the desire of the dealers customer.

The invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawing in which- Figure 1 represents a longitudinal sectional view of the Goodyear welt type containing the inven tion. v

Fig. 2 is a plan view of the lower face of the sock lining showing the resilient button constituting the arch support attached thereto.

Fig. 3 is a section on the line III-III Fig. 2.

Fig. 4 is an edge view of the arch support.

In the views the character 5 designates the outer sole and 6 the inner sole. In the welt type of shoe a mastic filler 7 is usually supplied between these two soles.

The metatarsal arch support consists, as shown, of a piece 8 or button-so called-of sponge-rubber or other resilient material cut, molded or otherwise fashioned'into a plaino-convex body having, generally, an outline of heart form. In practice said body 8 is first attached by pasting it to the lower side of the sock lining 9 at a duly indicated point thereon so that when the lining itself is pasted onto the inner sole of the shoe the button will lie between the sock lining and the inner sole and in position to support the metatarsal arch when the foot is placed into the shoe. The

' adherent quality of the paste used is such that the sock lining and the arch support can be readily detached.

From the construction shown and described it will be observed that if, at any time, it is desired to remove the support it can be 'easily done by simply pulling out the sock lining, removing the support and replacing the lining or applying a fresh lining without an attached support. It is also plain that such removal involves no appreciable injury to the shoe as when it is attempted to remove a support from between the outer and inner soles.

The forms of the parts can be varied without departing from the gist of the invention as claimed.

What I claim is:

A device for insertion in a shoe or other article of foot wear, said device comprising a sock lining to be pasted on top of the sole, a support for the metatarsal arch of the foot consisting of a button-like member of resilient material and of plano-convex form detachably secured by paste at the convex side thereof to the lower side of said sock lining, whereby the sock lining together with said attached arch support may be readily removed from the foot wear without destruction of the sock lining and said sock lining replaced in the foot wear without such support.
