Description

    CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATIONS
  • This application relates to and claims priority from U.S. Provisional Patent Application Ser. No. 60/732,575 filed on Nov. 3, 2005, specifications in which are incorporated herein by reference.
  • FEDERALLY SPONSORED RESEARCH
  • Not Applicable
  • SEQUENCE LISTING OR PROGRAM
  • Not Applicable
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION—FIELD OF INVENTION
  • This invention relates to downhill ski, specifically to adhere a walking device to a downhill ski boot.
  • BACKGROUND OF INVENTION
  • The sport of downhill skiing has been around for many years. The sport has changed drastically over the years with all the new technologies. The sport of downhill skiing concept as far as how the ski boot is mounted to the ski has not changed too drastically. The shapes of skis have undergone some major changes in how they look from the past to how they look in the present. The bottom of the boot design in reference to the adhering mechanism has relatively been unchanged. The Ski Boot Walker will adhere with ease in lieu of the bottom design of the ski boot. Thereafter, an inventor created a walking device for ski boots U.S. Pat. No. 4,619,059 to Koniuk 1986 discloses a walking device or boot accessory for the downhill skiing industry. The problem with this walking device which was granted to U.S. Pat. No. 4,619,059 to Koniuk was found to have difficulties with the adhering mechanism to the bottom of the ski boot. The U.S. Pat. No. 4,619,059 to Koniuk proves to be an ineffective way to adhere a walking device to the bottom of a ski boot.
  • Thus, the U.S. Pat. No. 4,619,059 to Koniuk has a problem with the adhering mechanism to the ski boot therefore rendering it less superior to Ski Boot Walker. With the new Ski Boot Walker and new design which is proposed in this patent the new Ski Boot Walker will adhere to any and all sizes of ski boots allowing the end user to traverse buildings with ease as well as with a more safe capacity.
  • To add, with the new Ski Boot Walker comes an affixing mechanism which will affix the Ski Boot Walker right to the back of the ski with ease, allowing skiers to carry their Ski Boot Walkers down the slope and wherever they need to go to use the Ski Boot Walker and affixing design.
    • A. The old boot accessory does not have a safe adhering mechanism.
    • B. The boot accessory does not have the affixing mechanism for the skier and/or end user to affix the apparatus to the ski for ease of carrying.
    BACKGROUND OF INVENTION—OBJECTS AND ADVANTAGES
  • Accordingly, besides the objects and advantages of the boot accessory described in my above patent, several objects and advantages of the present invention are:
    • A. New design—a much safer way to adhere a boot accessory to the bottom of a ski boot.
    • B. Carrying mechanism—a much more effective way and easier way to carry the Ski Boot Walker.
    • C. The design of the adhering mechanism allowing for the skier to have his ski boot walkers at all times in case of need to traverse a building or surface.
    • D. The adjustable mechanism allowing for a universal fit.
    SUMMARY
  • In accordance with the present invention, a Ski Boot Walker comprises a body having an adhering mechanism, a shoe base apparatus, stationary adhering mechanism, track adhering mechanism.
