'Nov. 24, 193 6. c, GABRIELE ANTI-SKID ATTACHMENT, FOR SHOES Filed July 19, 1935 Patented Nov. 24, 1936 ANTISKID ATTACHMENTFOR SHOES Carlo Gabriele, Youngstown, Ohio Application July 19, 1935, Serial No. 32,282

3 Claims. (01. 36-59) This invention relates to boots and shoes and more particularly to an ice creeper or anti-skid device especially designed for attachment to overshoes.

The object of the invention is to pro-vide a shoe or overshoe having cleats secured to the tread surface thereof and so disposed with refence thereto as to permit flexing of the shoe in the act of Walking and at the same time effectually prevent slipping or falling of the wearer when walking on ice, snow or other slippery surfaces.

A further object of the invention is to provide an anti-skid device or cleat of simple and durable construction which may be quickly attached to the sole of a shoe or overshoe and worn without discomfort to the wearer.

A further object is to provide an anti-skid device comprising sole and heel sections or cleats each including a, base portion conforming to the shape of the tread surface of the shoe and provided with depending spurs constituting a traction surface for engagement with the ground.

A still further object is generally to improve this class of devices so as to increase their utility, durability and efficiency.

In the accompanying drawing forming a part of this specification and in which similar numerals of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the figures of the drawing:

Figure 1 is a side elevation, partly in section, of an overshoe provided with an anti-skid device constructed in accordance with the present invention.

Figure 2 is a bottom plan view.

Figure 3 is a perspective view of the heel cleat detached.

Figure 4 is a, transverse sectional view taken on the line 4-4 of Figure 2.

Figure 5 is a transverse sectional view taken on the line 5-5 of Figure 4.

The improved anti-skid device While capable of attachment to all kinds of shoes, such as mens, ladies and childrens shoes, is principally designed for use in connection with overshoes and by way of illustration is shown in connection with an overshoe of conventional construction in which 5 designates the upper, 6 the heel, and l the outer sole.

The anti-skid device is preferably formed of three cleats or sections, a toe cleat 8,.heel cleat 9, and intermediate sole cleat H]. The toe cleat 8 is preferably stamped or otherwise formed from sheet metal and comprises three relatively short forward arms II which project in the direction of the toe portion of the shoe and two relatively long rear arms l2 and H! of unequal length, the end of one of which is disposed adjacent one marginal edge of the sole l and the end of the other arm I2 being disposed near the other marginal edge of the shoe, as best shown in Figure 2 of the drawing. The metal constituting the toe cleat is bent or struck up to form terminal spurs l3, preferably concavo-convex in cross section, as indicated at M, and terminating in impaling points 55 adapted to engage a slippery surface such as ice or snow and prevent slipping of the wearer in the act of walking thereon. Adjacent each spur i3 is an opening it through which extends a rivet or similar fastening device I! for engagement with the sole i so as to prevent accidental displacement of the cleat. It will thus be seen that the arms ll conform to the shape of the toe portion of the shoe, while the arms l2 and I2 extend transversely of the sole i so that the terminal spurs on said arms entirely surround the toe portion of the shoe and provide a roughened surface for engagement with the ground.

The central or intermediate cleat H] is preferably substantially triangular in shape and the metal at the opposite ends of the forward or wide portion of the cleat is bent or struck up to provide spurs similar in construction to the spurs l3, it being preferred, however, to omit the spur at the rear side of the intermediate cleat, as best shown in Figure 2 of the drawing. The intermediate cleat ill is secured to the sole of the overshoe by rivets similar in construction to the rivets H which rivets pass through openings l9 formed in the cleat and one of these rivets is preferably disposed at the apex of the rear portion of the cleat, as indicated at 2%, in lieu of positioning a spur at that point.

The heel cleat 9 preferably consists of intersecting bars 2| having terminal depending spurs 22 similar in construction to the spurs It, said heel cleat being secured to the heel 6 of the shoe by the rivets previously referred to.

In positioning the anti-skid device on an overshoe or other article of footwear, the toe cleat is arranged adjacent the toe of the shoe with the long arm l2 extending outwardly across the tread surface of the sole l and the short arm l2 extending inwardly, as best shown in Figure 2 of the drawing. The intermediate cleat Hi is then positioned on the shoe sole l with the apex of the cleat extending in the direction of the instep and spaced a sufficient distance from the toe cleat to permit free flexing of the sole of the shoe in the act of walking. The heel cleat 9 is riveted to the heel 6 with the short ends of the bars 2| extendinglin the direction of the rear end of the heel and the long ends of the bars 2| extending in the direction of the corners of the breast of the heel.

While the device is principally designed for attachment to overshoes, it will be understood that said device may be secured directly to the tread surface of a boot, shoe, or other article of footwear and may be applied to any style of shoe, such as mens, ladies, or childrens shoes without departing from the spirit of the invention.

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

1. The combination with a shoe including a heel and sole, of an anti-skid device comprising a toe cleat having spaced front arms of substantially the same length radiating forwardly and diverging rear arms of different lengths, all of said arms being provided with depending spurs.

2. The combination with a shoe including a heel and sole, of an anti-skid device comprising a toe'cleat secured to the sole of the shoe and having relatively short front arms radiating forwardly and diverging rear arms of diiferent lengths, the material forming the cleat being bent at the ends of the several arms to form depending spurs substantially concavo-convex in cross section.

3. A toe cleat for shoes stamped from a single sheet of metal to form relatively short front arms of substantially the same length radiating forwardly and diverging rearwardly extending long arms of difierent lengths, the metal at the ends of the several arms being bent to form depending spurs substantially concavo-convex in cross section.

CARLO GABRIELE.
