STOCKING PROTECTOR Filed Dec. 15, 1935 Patented Feb. 5, 1935" t Thisinvention relates 'to a stocking protector adapted to be placed on the heel- 0f the wearer" over' the heel of the stocking andtworn inside theshoe. g

- One of the important objects-oi intimates is the provision of" a stocking fprotector which will closely fit" and cling to the heel of the wearer;

so that if there is any movement/"of? thehee150f' the wearer in the shoe, thewear engendered: by such movement will be taken up bysthe pro-' te'cto'r instead of by the stocking:

Ahother object o'f'thein'vention 'is'the' provi'-' sion' ofa stocking protector"havingielastic' side walls in order to aflfordia-firmer grip Morn-the ihee'l irrespective of variations in the form th'ereofz' A further cbject'is the pro-vision'of a protector a low cost.

of simple construction which may be-made at Other objects" of the invention will be inpart I 26' oreacnside piece are-thensecured to one obvious and in'part described hereinafter.

' In'the accompanying drawing illustrating' 'my' invention,- Figure 1 is a" plan view of a'stocking prot'ec'tor' constructed in accordance therewith; I Fig. 2 is alongitudinal sectional View ofitlie same" on line 2 2' in 'Fig. 1;-'Fig 3' is a transv rs sectional view oil-line 3 3 in FigK Z; "Fig.

ha'v'ing side" portions of elas'tic' materianr 5 is'a longitudinal sectional view of'thesaiiie'on-line of the' three blanks which make u'pa stocking protector; andFig; Bis aside elevation showing a stocking protector in position on the'heel pjora stocking protector adapted to fit closely and to grip the heel of the wearer. Thethree pieces comprise a main or base portion 10 having its rear end extended upwardly to form a back portion 12 and two side pieces 14 and 16 which constitute the side walls of the protector. The base portion 10, as shown in Figure '7, conforms to the outline of the bottom of the heel portion of a foot and the extension 12 has its opposite side edges cut on concavely curved lines 18 and 20, and its end edge 22 has aslight convex curvature.

Each of the side pieces 14 and 16 (Fig. 7) is approximately triangular in form having its two edges 24 and 26 of very slight curvature connected together by a rounded convexly curved edge 28 of comparatively small radius,. The

remainingedg 30' of each side piecesconstituting U theupp'e'r edge of one side of the protector-and being a-continuation' of the edge 221of"'the ex'-' tension l2 isconvexly curved-to a slight extent.

' The three pieces comprising the stocking pro- 5" tector may be either stamped out of suitable sheetimaterial by'the us'e of' dies o'r cut fromthe material using patterns of the shapes shown in Figure '7. Various materials may be 'usedfo'r this purposesuc'h as thinflexible leather or composition materialsof different liinds. :"In* the form of protector shown Fig ures' 4 to" a m-" elusive, the side piecesll l andld-aremad elastic mate'rial; preferably woven,

- In as'sembl'ing the threeparts to form' apro tector, they are arrangedinthevrelations shown.

iri'FigL-7 with the top'edges BOof-'thesidepiecesin alignment with the top-edges: of the ex; tensiomla or the base and the edges 24, 28* and he stocking protectors heretofore 'mads dr' two piecea wh-ich necessarilyhave a cross seam of theabove de scription, muc difiiculty has been experienced in eliminating" an undue fullness engendered-by the'cross searri'and in securing" a close'and smooth fit at this part of theheel. The use of. a single piece for the base; andiback' ofthe' protectorbt however, produces ai-coi triictiomin which: that 35 portion follows the natural curve of the heel and fits it snugly. By providing the extension 12 with concavely curved side edges, the seams which join the side pieces to said extension tend to follow substantially arcs of a sphere and therefore the stocking protector more naturallyfits the more or less spherical. portion of the heel.

My stocking protector may be made entirely of one kind of material such as thin flexible leather or similar material as illustrated in Figures 1 to 3 inclusive or it may have a base and extension of such material with side pieces of elastic woven material as shown in Figures 4- to 6 inclusive. When elastic side pieces are used, the top edges 30 of those pieces may be reenforced by enclosing in the stitching 36, used to finish those edges, elastic tapes 38: and the two ends of each tape may be fastened by the stitching 34at the two ends of each edge 30 or in any other suitable manner. In Fig. 4, the 55 a' plan-view"of another form of tlie iriventi bad? of the heel is" avoide stitching 36 is omitted on part 01 the right edge 30 to'show the tape 38. Preferably, the

hand

tapes 38 are so secured in the edges of the side pieces as to be under a light tension when those pieces are extended without stretching whereby the tapes exert "a slightly heavier tension than the side pieces when the stocking protector is in Figure 8 which application tends tothrow the back portion of the protector into a more upright position and to pull the sides inwardly to gripthe sides of the heel. When-provided with elastic side walls; the protector may be made slightly smaller in each size sothat'when applied to a heel, the side walls are under a. light tension which may be increased to some" extent along the top, edge of the, protector byrthe use: of the .reenforcing tape; .This construction gin-i; suresitheretention of the protector on thelheel' of the foot so thatif there is any relative movement between the heel of the shoe andztheaheel of' the foot in walking; the stockingwis pro tected and the frictional" wear, isabsorbed by the protector.
