Description

    BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • [0001]
    1. Field of the Invention
  • [0002]
    The invention generally relates to shoes with socks. More particularly, the invention relates to two shoes with two socks which may have additional miniature stylish designs to make the shoes with socks of the present invention comfortable and stylish thanks to the combination of the shoes and socks and the additional miniature stylish designs.
  • [0003]
    2. Description of the Prior Art
  • [0004]
    Shoes and socks have been used for a long time. Regarding the design of shoes and socks, there has not been any overall design of them. Therefore, comfortable shoes sold on the market are often not easy to put on and take off and are usually not very appealing. Socks have been regarded as an accessory and very few improvements have been made in their appearance or design. It is quite difficult for a person to find shoes and socks that match with his clothes.
  • [0005]
    In fact, shoes are worn to protect our feet so as to enable us to walk around for a long time. Socks may keep dust and pollutants off our feet and provide comfort to our feet.
  • [0006]
    The inventor has put a lot of effort into the present invention, and has successfully come up with shoes with socks which may have additional miniature stylish designs, wherein the functions of the shoes and socks may be optimized and the goals of appealing appearance and personalized style may be reached with the additional miniature stylish designs.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • [0007]
    An object of the present invention is to provide shoes which are provided with socks which may have additional miniature designs to match the clothes of a user so as to reach the goal of personalized style.
  • [0008]
    Another object of the present invention is to provide shoes with socks which may have additional miniature designs, wherein a comfortable liner may be provided on the inner surface of each sock and an anti-slipping layer may be provided on the outer surface of each sock, and wherein the shoes may be put on and taken off easily and are water-resistant, and wherein the shoes are comfortable and safe and provide full protection to the feet.
  • [0009]
    To reach these objects, the present invention of shoes with socks which may have additional miniature stylish designs are disclosed. A grass-like knitted liner is provided on the inner surface of each sock and can provide a higher level of comfort. An anti-slipping layer may be provided on the outer surface of each sock to increase the friction and thus avoid slipping. Each shoe comprises a top portion and a sole portion. The top portion and the sole portion are integrally formed and thus make the shoes of the present invention water-proof. A front lace section is provided on the front portion of the top portion and a rear lace section is provided on the rear portion of the top portion. The rear lace section passes the opening and goes through the back wall of the top portion. In use, the rear lace section is fixedly attached to the corresponding sock through the engagement of two engagement units. In addition, a fastening unit is provided on both the front lace section and the rear lace section to allow a user to adjust the tightness of either lace sections easily and quickly. Therefore, the shoes with socks of the present invention may optimize the functions of shoes and socks and, thanks to the additional miniature stylish designs provided on the socks, the goal of personalized style may be reached.

  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT
  • [0020]
    The following description is made with reference to the accompanied drawings.
  • [0021]
    Please refer to FIGS. 1 and 2, which illustrate the present invention of shoes with socks which may have additional miniature stylish designs. The shoes with socks of the present invention comprise two shoes 2 and two socks 1. The two shoes 2 and the two socks 1 may have different designs so that they may match each other to enhance the aesthetical appeal.
  • [0022]
    Each sock 1 has a boot-like shape and may be worn by a user. Each shoe 2 comprises a top portion 21 and a sole portion 22. An opening 23 is provided on the top portion to allow a user to put his foot into the sock 1 and the shoe 2. A front lace section 31 is provided on the front portion of the top portion 21 and a rear lace section 32 is provided on the rear portion of the top portion 21. The rear lace section 32 passes the opening 23 and goes through the back wall of the top portion 21. A fastening unit 4 is provided on both the front lace section 31 and the rear lace section 32 to allow a user to adjust the tightness of either lace sections 31 and 32 easily and quickly. The dual design of the two lace sections 31 and 32 allows people with different foot sizes to adjust the tightness of their shoe laces easily so that the shoes will not detach from their feet by accident.
  • [0023]
    In use, the rear lace section 32 is fixedly attached to the corresponding sock 1. In this embodiment, an engagement unit 51 and 52 is provided on the rear lace section 32 and the corresponding sock 1. Optionally, Velcro fasteners or other means may be used. A tightness adjustment piece 6 is provided by the opening 23 and may be used to adjust the tightness of the rear lace section 32 with respect to the corresponding sock 1. In addition, in comparison to the traditional shoes in which the top portion is attached to the sole portion via sewing or glue, in the shoes with socks of the present invention, the top portion and the sole portion are integrally formed and thus make the shoes of the present invention water-proof.
  • [0024]
    Moreover, the socks 1 and shoes 2 may have different patterns or colors so as to match with each other. Similarly, the front lace section 31 and the rear lace section 32 may have different patterns or colors.
  • [0025]
    As illustrated in FIG. 3, a grass-like knitted liner 11 is provided on the inner surface of each sock 1 and can provide a higher level of comfort, keep the feet dry and suppress bacteria and foul odor. An anti-slipping layer 12 may be provided on the outer surface of each sock 1 to increase the friction and thus avoid slipping. The anti-slipping layer 12 may be made of water-resistant fabric to increase the water-resistant capability of the sock 1.
  • [0026]
    As illustrated in FIG. 4, the front portion and the rear portion of the sole portion 22 may be provided with different types of patterns. In the embodiment, the front portion has a tiger's paw pattern 221 and the rear portion has a horse's hoof pattern 222 so as to make the shoe 2 aesthetically appealing and anti-slipping. In addition, a sole portion made of different material may be provided with a different pattern.
  • [0027]
    As shown in FIGS. 5A to 5D, different types of additional miniature stylish designs may be provided on each sock 1 to make it unique or to match the apparel of a user. In FIG. 5A, the miniature stylish design (a) is a collar design, which includes several buttons that may be used by a user to open the opening of the sock 1 so that he may put his foot into the sock 1 more easily. In FIG. 5B, the miniature stylish design (b) mimics the crotch of pants and is provided with a hidden zipper, which may also be used by a user to open the opening of the sock 1 so that he may put his foot into the sock 1 more easily. In FIG. 5C, the miniature stylish design (c) has the design of the pocket of an overall. In FIG. 5D, the miniature stylish design (d) has the design of the pocket of a suit and may be used to hold paraphernalia. These four types of miniature stylish designs make the socks 1 more aesthetically appealing and more useful.
  • [0028]
    Many changes and modifications in the above described embodiment of the invention can, of course, be carried out without departing from the scope thereof. Accordingly, to promote the progress in science and the useful arts, the invention is disclosed and is intended to be limited only by the scope of the appended claims.
