ARCH SUPPORT Filed June 3, 1933 INVENTOR. m

ATTORNEY Patented Oct. 16, 1934 Assn SUPPORT Louis c. 'Weiler', Bro'ni N. Y.

Application June 3,1933; Serial No. 6"?4,15i'

This invention relates to arch supports.

An object of this invention is to provide a strong, neat and durable arch support of the character described, which shall be extremely simple in construction, comparatively inexpensive to manufacture, comfortable to use either separately or when incorporated into a shoe, and which shall yet be practical and efficient to a high degree.

Other objects of this invention will in part be obvious and in part hereinafter pointed out.

The invention accordingly consists in the features of construction, combinations of elements, and arrangement of parts which will be exemplified in the construction hereinafter described, and of which the scope of application will be indicated in the following claims.

In the accompanying drawing, in which is shown one of the various possible illustrative embodiments of this invention,

Fig. 1 is a side elevational view of an arch support embodying the invention, applied to a foot within a shoe, with the shoe in cross-section;

Fig. 2 is a cross-sectional view taken on line 2-2 of Fig. 1; and

Fig. 3 is a top plan view of my improved arch support flattened out.

Referring now in detail to the drawing, 10 designates an arch support embodying the invention, show in Figs. 1 and 2, as applied to a foot 11 within a shoe 12. The arch support 10 comprises an insole portion 14 made of leather or any other suitable material having the shape of the insole of the shoe. From the mid-portion, however of the insole 14, extend tabs or cars 15 and 16, in opposite directions. The upper surface of the leather may be creased, as at 1511 and 16a, to follow the line of the insole to permit the tabs 15 and 16 to be bent upwardly to fit the inner and outer sides of the arch of the foot.

Attached to the underside of the mid-portion of the insole 10 is a relatively wide, flexible strap 20, preferably made of elastic fabric. The strap 20 is attached at substantially its mid-portion to the insole by means of stitching 21, and extends from opposite sides of the member 14. The extending portions of the strap preferably incline somewhat forwardly to permit the strap to embrace the foot. Attached to the outer ends of the strap are folded over edging or binding portions 23, each provided with a row of eyelets 24. It will now be understood that the strap ends may be attached together by means of lacing 27 extending through said eyelets. When the strap is ht, the ear portions 15 and 16- are snugly I pressed against the arch portions of the foot for supporting the same. A thin flexible liner 30 of leather or any other suitable flexible material,

may be pasted over the central portion of the member 1 1 to cover the stitching 21.

The member 10 may be made, sold and used separately or may be incorporated into a shoe.

The strap 20 may be made of two similar symmetrically disposed pieces or strips, the inner ends of which are cut at an angle and stitched together on a line 31 as shown in Fig. 3 of the drawing. With such construction the extending portions of the strap are disposed at an angle to one another.

It will be understood that the openings 24 in the strap 20 are so located that the lacing for the shoe may be laced through said openings so that only a single lace is necessary for attaching together both the strap ends and the shoe.

It will thus be seen that there is provided a device in which the several objects of this invention are achieved, and which is well adapted to meet the conditions of practical use.

As various possible embodiments might be made of the above invention, and as various changes might be made in the embodiment above set forth, it to be understood that all matter herein set forth or shown in the accompanying drawing, is to be interpreted as illustrative and not in 5 a limiting sense.

Having thus described my invention, as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent:-

1. An arch support comprising an insole, a stnap comprising a pair of straight elongated elastic strips attached at the inner ends thereof to said insole and extending from opposite sides thereof, and means for attaching together the free ends of said strips, .the inner ends of said strips being inclined and abutting and being stitched together and to the insole in such re-.

lation.

2. An arch support comprising an insole, an elastic strap comprising a pair of substantially similar symmetrically disposed, straight strips,

the inner edges of which meet and are stitched-1 together at the mid-portion of the strap, means for attaching the mid-portion of the strap to the insole, and lacing means for attaching together the free ends of the strips, said inner edges being inclined to the longitudinal axes of said strips.,;

3. An arch support comprising an insole, ears extending to opposite sides of the mid-portions of said insole, said insole being formed with creased lines defining the ears and permitting said ears to be readily bent, a strap comprising I claim I a pair of similar symmetrically disposed elongated straight elastic strips, the inner ends of said strips being inclined to the longitudinal axes of said strips and stitched together, and the inner portions of said strips being inclined and abutting and attached by stitching to the under-side of said insole, said strips being adapted to be wrapped about the instep of a foot, and means, for attaching together the free ends of said strips in wrapped position.

4. An arch support comprising an insole, ears extending to opposite sides of the mid-portion of said insole, said insole being formed with creased lines defining the ears and permitting said ears insole.

to be readily bent, a strap comprising a pair of similar symmetrically disposed elongated straight elastic strips, the inner ends of said strips being inclined to the longitudinal axes of said strips, said inclined ends abutting and being stitched together and to the under-side of said insole, said strips being adapted to be wrapped about the instep of a foot, means for attaching together the free ends of said strips in wrapped position, and a sheet member attached to the upper surface of said insole for covering the stitching which attaches the inner portions of said strips to said LOUIS G. WEILER.
