  • BACKGROUND OF THE PRESENT INVENTION
  • [0002]
    1. Field of Invention
  • [0003]
    The present invention relates to a footwear and production method thereof, and more particularly to a method of producing footwear comprising a shoe body having an integral foaming layer and a footwear having an integral foaming layer produced by such method.
  • [0004]
    2. Description of Related Arts
  • [0005]
    Referring to FIG. 1 to FIG. 2 of the drawings, a conventional foam shoe 10 comprises a foaming layer 13 provided in the shoe body 11 and the sole 12, enabling the foam shoe 10 to have advantages such as pliable and comfortable, thermal insulation and waterproof. Referring to FIG. 3 to FIG. 10 of the drawings, a method of producing the conventional foam shoe 10 comprises the following steps:
  • [0006]
    A foaming raw material 20 is foamed to a foamed block 21 having a predetermined thickness. Trim and remove any unevenly foamed outer surface 22 formed on the top side and lateral side of the foamed block 21. Then, the foamed material 21 is sliced into a plurality of foaming panels 23 with a desired thickness (as shown in FIG. 3). Each of the two sides of the foaming panels 23 are attached with an inner covering fabric layer 14 and an outer decorating fabric layer 15 (as shown in FIG. 4). The foaming panels 23 are each cut into a left shoe plate 25, a right shoe plate 26, and a midsole plate 27 (as shown in FIG. 5 and FIG. 6), wherein the left shoe plate 25 and the right shoe plate 25 are sewed together along the outer contour edge thereof while their bottom edges are sewed with the midsole plate 27 along the outer contour edge thereof, so as to form a shoe-type foaming sleeve 28, which has an opening 29 provided at a top end thereof to communicate the inside thereof (as shown in FIG. 7).
  • [0007]
    The foaming sleeve 28 is encased on a shoe last 30 and that the shoe last 30 and the foaming sleeve 28 are in contact with each other. Other shoe parts such as a sole 12, reinforcing elements 16, 17, decorating elements 18, 19 are adhered to a bottom surface and an outer surface of the foaming sleeve 28 at a position with respect to the shoe last 30 (as shown in FIG. 9 and FIG. 10). These shoe parts are made of mixed rubber material before vulcanization. Finally, shoe parts such as the sole 12, reinforcing elements 16, 17 and the decorating elements 18, 19 are thus vulcanized after a vulcanization process in a vulcanization reactor so as to enhance and increase the rubber properties thereof. After a cooling process, a foam shoe 10 is made.
  • [0008]
    However, the above conventional producing method has several disadvantages.
  • [0009]
    Firstly, the unevenly foamed outer surface 22 with of the foamed block 21 that has a predetermined thickness should be trimmed and removed, so that it not only wastes raw material but also increases additional production procedures, reducing the production efficiency. Also, the trimmed raw material is a waste material that causes issues of environmental protection and increases the production cost of the foam shoe 10.
  • [0010]
    Secondly, it is time-consuming to cut the foamed block 21 into panels according to the thickness required. Also, the two sides of each of the foaming panels 23 must be laminated with the inner covering fabric layer 14 and the outer decorating fabric layer 15 respectively. Therefore, the next cutting step of the foaming panel 23 can only be carried out after the laminating adhesive is dried. The tedious production process renders the efficiency of the production of the foam shoe 10 impractically to elevate.
  • [0011]
    Thirdly, it is also time-consuming to cut the foaming panel 23 which is adhered with the inner covering fabric layer 14 and the outer decorating fabric layer 15 into the left shoe plate 25, the right shoe plate 26, and the midsole plate 27, and the left-over material becomes waste material 24 that causes issues of environment pollution. Recycling and treatment of the waste material 24 would also result in higher production cost.
  • [0012]
    U.S. Pat. No. 2,256,329 (hereinafter called conventional art) disclosed a conventional method of producing a shoe that comprises the steps of vulcanizing and foaming in a mould, wherein if the steps are carried out without the limitation of the mould, rough and undulating surfaces will be formed on the final shoe product after the foaming step, causing the shoe products appearing unaesthetic.
  • SUMMARY OF THE PRESENT INVENTION
  • [0013]
    A main object of the present invention is to provide a foamed footwear and a production method thereof, wherein the parts and foaming layer of the foamed footwear undergo a vulcanizing reaction and a foaming reaction at the same time for being integrated with the shoe body, so as to produce the foamed footwear, so that the conventional tedious production steps such as pre-foaming of the foaming layers, cutting, trimming, sewing, and etc. of the foam shoe can thus be eliminated, and the unnecessary waste of material can also be avoided.

  • [0046]
    (4) A footwear sole 81, two necessary reinforcing elements 82, 83, and one or more necessary decorating elements 84, which are made from mixed rubber material that have been undergone a mixing process without a vulcanizing process, are attached to an outer surface of the outer decorating fabric 71, 72, 73 (as shown in FIG. 13). The shape, thickness, and size of the reinforcing elements 82, 83 are predetermined according to the functions of the foamed footwear 86. The reinforcing elements 82, 83 made of varied materials, in which rubber is a necessary ingredient, may be provided to different positions of the footwear body. The decorating elements 84 can be designed into any three dimensional shape or plane shape having aesthetic appearance according to the design of the foamed footwear. Or, decorating elements 84 of various color are attached to different positions of the footwear body to enhance its aesthetic appearance. Also, according to the present preferred embodiment, the bonding position of the outer decorating fabric 71 is provided at a rear lateral side of the footwear tube portion 43, and the elongated stripe shape flat decorating element 84 can be covered on the bonding position to enhance the aesthetic appearance thereof.
  • [0047]
    (5) Vulcanization reaction: the above semi-finished product is heated in a vulcanization reactor, which has a pressure of 3.5 kg/cm2 and a temperature maintained between 120˜135° C., so that the footwear sole 81, the two necessary reinforcing elements 82, 83, and the necessary decorating elements 84 undergo a vulcanizing reaction process to enhance and increase rubber properties thereof, and that the footwear sole 81, the two necessary enforcing elements 82, 83, the necessary decorating elements 84, the inner covering housing 50, and the outer decorating fabric 71, 72, 73 are integrated to form an integral (one-piece) structure. The foaming raw materials 61, 62, 63 are expanded after the foaming reaction and the first partition layer 52 on the outer surface of the inner covering housing 50 and the second partition layer 75 on the inner surface of the outer decorating fabric 71, 72, 73 are made of mixed rubber having appropriate hardness and impermeability. Therefore, when undergoing the foaming process, the foaming and expanding of the foaming raw materials 61, 62, 63 is restricted between the first partition layer 52 on the outer surface of the inner covering housing 50 and the second partition layer 75 on the inner surface of the outer decorating fabric 71, 72, 73, and also is restricted between the footwear sole 81 and the first partition layer 52 on the outer surface of the inner covering housing 50. The foamed layer is thus integrated and fused with the footwear sole 81, the inner covering housing 50, the necessary decorating elements 84, and the outer decorating fabric 71, 72, 73 to form a final foamed footwear 86 product.
  • [0048]
