Abstract

Disclosed is a sports shoe, which includes a sole and a vamp fixed together with the sole. The vamp comprises a heelpiece for wrapping heel, a top surface part provided with lace holes and a main body connecting the heelpiece and the top surface part. The main body comprises an outer layer and an inner layer for fitting a human foot, and the outer layer has cylindrical protruding bodies uniformly provided on an outer surface thereof for increasing frictional force applied to a ball. The protruding body has a top surface protruded outwards, and has protruding points or protruding stripes uniformly formed on the top surface for increasing frictional force. The main body of the vamp of the present invention is provided with protruding bodies for increasing frictional force applied to a ball, which will bring a good effect on competitive sports.

Description

    FIELD OF THE INVENTION
  • The present invention relates to shoes and, in particular, it concerns a sports shoe.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • With the development and progress of society, the people pay more and more attentions on health, thus sports as one way to keep health has been paid increasingly attention. Ball game is one of the most popular sports among people, for example, the ball game which is played by kicking, such as football, sepak takraw and so on, is gradually popularized and promoted. The sports shoe with good performance is critical for the ball games played by kicking. However, the existing sports shoes are all made of canvas materials or leather materials, thus such sports shoes cannot make the ball rotate quickly when kicking a ball and it will lead to a poor effect on competitive sports.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • An object of the present invention is to provide a sports shoe, which can increasing frictional force between the shoe and a ball, so as to overcome the defects of the prior art.
  • To achieve the above object, there are provided technical solutions as follows:
  • A sports shoe includes a sole and a vamp, both of which are fixed together. The vamp includes a heelpiece for wrapping heel, a top surface part provided with lace holes and a main body connecting the heelpiece and the top surface part, the main body comprising an outer layer and an inner layer for fitting a human foot, the outer layer has cylindrical protruding bodies uniformly provided on an outer surface thereof for increasing frictional force applied to a ball.
  • Preferably, a top surface of the protruding body is protruded outwards. When kicking a ball, the top surface of the protruding body will contact with the ball surface, then the top surface of the protruding body will cave in, thus the top surface of the protruding body is designed to be convex, which is able to make up the concave, so as to make the top surface of the protruding body closer to the ball surface and then make the frictional force applied to the ball more uniform, when the top surface of the protruding body will contact with the ball surface.
  • Preferably, the protruding body has protruding points uniformly formed on a top surface thereof for increasing frictional force. The protruding points are able to further increase the frictional force for the ball so as to increase the rotating speed of the ball.
  • Preferably, the protruding body has protruding stripes uniformly formed on a top surface thereof for increasing frictional force. The protruding stripes are able to further increase the frictional force for the ball so as to increase the rotating speed of the ball.
  • Preferably, the outer layer is a natural rubber layer. Compared with other artificial elastic materials, the natural rubber is harmless to human body and it has a longer lifetime.
  • Preferably, the inner layer is a leather layer, which is made of animal leather or artificial leather.
  • Preferably, the sole has spikes provided on a bottom surface thereof for increasing grip.
  • Preferably, the outer layer and the inner layer are fixedly connected together by means of adhesive bonding.
  • Preferably, there is a middle layer is provided between the outer layer and the inner layer for increasing cushion effect, the outer layer, the middle layer and the inner layer being sequentially fixedly connected together by means of adhesive bonding. The middle layer is used to enhance buffering power. In this case, the outside force could be mainly absorbed by the middle layer, thus the outer layer could be designed to be thinner, thereby reducing the manufacturing cost of the outer layer.
  • Preferably, the middle layer is a sponge rubber layer.
  • Compared with the prior art, the present invention has some beneficial effects as follows:
  • The main body of the vamp of the present invention is provided with protruding bodies for increasing frictional force applied to a ball; furthermore, the protruding body has a top surface protruded outwards and provided with protruding points or protruding stripes uniformly formed on the top surface thereof, thereby greatly increasing the frictional force between the shoe and the ball when kicking a ball, which will bring a good effect on competitive sports.
  • BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS
  • FIG. 1 is a partial section view of a vamp according to a first embodiment of the present invention;
  • FIG. 2 is an enlarged view of A part shown in FIG. 1;
  • FIG. 3 is a side view of a sports shoe according to the first embodiment of the present invention; and
  • FIG. 4 is a top view of a protruding body according to a second embodiment of the present invention; and
  • FIG. 5 is a partial section view of a vamp according to a third embodiment of the present invention.
  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF ILLUSTRATED EMBODIMENTS
  • The present invention will become more clearly by means of the following description combining the accompanying drawings, which are used to illustrate embodiments of the present invention.
  • As shown in FIG. 1 to FIG. 3, it illustrates the structure of the first embodiment of the present invention.
  • The sports shoe of the first embodiment includes a sole 40 and a vamp 100, both of which are fixed together.
  • The vamp 100 includes a heelpiece 10 for wrapping heel, a top surface part 30 provided with lace holes and a main body 20 connecting the heelpiece 10 and the top surface part 30. The main body 20 includes an outer layer 21 and an inner layer 22 fitting a human foot. The outer layer 21 has cylindrical protruding bodies 210 uniformly provided on an outer surface thereof for increasing frictional force applied to a ball. The outer layer 21 and the inner layer 22 are fixedly connected together by means of adhesive bonding, such as using polyurethane adhesives. The outer layer 21 is natural rubber layer. In the first embodiment, the inner layer 22 is leather layer, which is made of animal skin; and in other embodiment, the inner layer 22 could be made of artificial leather.
  • The top surface of the protruding body 210 is protruded outwards. The protruding body 210 has protruding points 211 uniformly formed on the top surface thereof for increasing frictional force.
  • The sole 40 has spikes 41 provided on a bottom surface thereof for increasing grip.
  • The second embodiment of the present invention is different from the first embodiment: as shown in FIG. 4, the protruding body 610 has protruding stripes 611 uniformly formed on the top surface thereof for increasing frictional force. The protruding stripes 611 shown in FIG. 4 is one of the embodiments, and in other embodiment, the protruding stripes 611 could be achieved by other ways, such as squares stripes and so on.
