.SHOE SOLE POLISHER Filed June '7, 1955 By @Mm A Home};

Patented Sept. 1, 1936 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE SHOE-SOLE POLISHER Edmund A. Schneider, St. Louis, Mo.

Application June '7,

1 Claim.

This invention relates to a polisher or dauber for polishing the soles of shoes and is particularly adapted for polishing shoe soles which are of a different color than the shoe upper, as for example, for polishing the soles of white shoes, which soles are usually black or brown.

Further, the device will be especially useful for polishing the sole of the two-tone sport shoes now generally in vogue.

The invention together with its objects and advantages will be best understood from a study of the following description taken in connection with the accompanying drawing wherein:

Figure 1 is a side elevational view of the polisher with the parts in position ready for application to the shoe sole for polishing the same.

Figure 2 is a bottom plan view of the polisher.

Figure 3 is an end elevational view.

Figure 4 is a side elevational view showing the dauber arranged for the dipping of the same into the container for the polish.

Referring to the drawing by reference numerals it will be seen that the polisher comprises a shield 6 which may be of any suitable shape but is preferably of substantially U-shape, as shown, having sides I and 8, the side 1 being connected with the top of the shield by an inclined portion 9. The shield 6 is formed integrally with a handle ID, the latter being in the form of a narrow elongated plate of metal or other suitable material.

Further the invention consists of a dauber H of felt, or other suitable material suitably provided on one end of a handle l2 that is similar to the handle ID and is hinged at its free end of the handle l8 as at 13.

In actual practice the handles and I2 are first moved to open position, or to the position shown in Figure 4 so that the dauber ll may be dipped into the polish to be applied to the sole of the shoe.

After the dauber I I has become saturated with the polish the handle I2 is swung into close relation to the handle I!) so that the dauber H fits within the confines of the shield 6 as shown in Figures 1 to 3 inclusive. With the parts now in 1935, Serial No. 25,498

this position the device is suitably manipulated for drawing the dauber ll over the edge of the shoe sole with the shield 6 serving to effectively prevent polish from the dauber being smeared onto the shoe upper. In this connection it will .3 be understood that the side of the shield having the angular related portions 9 and I is disposed against the shoe upper and by reason of this specific construction of said side the dauber II will be able to contact the top edge surface of 10 the shoe sole for substantially the full width of said top edge so as to permit of the application of the polish to the shoe sole approximately up to the seam between the sole and the shoe upper Without danger of the polish being smeared on the shoe upper, the shape of this mentioned side of the shield being admirable for permitting such a complete polishing of the shoe sole edge to the extent mentioned.

It will therefore be seen that a dauber of this character will be especially useful for polishing the black, brown or other colored sole of white shoes, or for polishing the sole of any shoe the upper of which is a color different from that color of the shoe sole.

Having thus described the invention, what is claimed as new is:

In a device for applying polish to shoe soles,

a pair of elongated substantially fiat metallic handle members hingedly connected together at one end, a dauber carried by one of said handle members, said one handle member having its free end embedded in said dauber, and the other of said handle members at its free end having integral flanges extending from opposite side edges thereof to provide a substantially U-shaped shield adapted to receive said dauber, one of said flanges extending in a plane substantially at right angles to the plane of the second handle member, and the other of said flanges having a part extending from said second handle member at an obtuse angle thereto, and having a second part paralleling the first named flange as and for the purpose specified.

EDMUND A. SCHNEIDER.
