Description

RUBBER HEEL Filed April 20, 1957 INVENTOR ROCCO CONT/CCH/O ATTOR Patented Nov. 9, 1937 OFFICE RUBBER HEEL Rocco Conticchio, Mount Vernon, N. Y., assignor of one-half to John W. Guzzetta, Mount Vernon, N. Y.

Application April 20, 1937, Serial No. 137,973

2 Claims.

My present invention relates to rubber heels, and more particularly to such devices as are adapted for use in connection with mens, womens or childrens shoes. It is the main object 5 of the present invention to provide a rubber heel which is simple in construction, easy and economical to fabricate and assemble and admirably adapted to perform the functions intended as hereinafter more specifically set forth.

In the accompanying specification, I shall describe and in the annexed drawing show an illustrative embodiment of the rubber heels of the present invention. It is, however, to be clearly understood that changes in the details of construction therein may be made without the use of the inventive faculties and within the scope of the claims hereto appended.

In the accompanying drawing, Fig. 1 is a partial longitudinal sectional, partial side elevational view of a rubber heel made in accordance with the principles of the present invention attached to a shoe.

Fig. 2 is a bottom plan view, and

Fig. 3 is a transverse sectional view taken along line 3-3 of Fig. 2.

Referring now more in detail to the aforesaid illustrative embodiment of the rubber heels of the present invention, and with particular reference to the drawing illustrating the same, numeral I generally designates the rear portion of a shoe, particularly shown here as a mans shoe, but which, it is to be understood, may be a woman's or childs shoe. Such shoe is provided with a leather or wooden heel II which may be built up of layers, as specifically shown here, or may be solid.

The heel I I is provided with a centrally located depression l2, the shape of which conforms with the shape of the heel and the depth of which should be less than the raised portion of the rubber heel which will hereinafter be referred to.

A rubber heel I3 adapted to be secured to the shoe I0 is conventional in shape but has on its inner surface the marginal cupped portion I4, 45 from the inner limits of which rises a raised portion or platform I 5. The upper surface of the platform I5 is slightly below the rim It of the marginal cupped portion I l. On the outer surface ll of the heel, I provide the anti-skid raised portions I8 and it is to be noted that the side walls I9 of the heel are disposed at an angle other than a right angle to the bottom surface ll, converging toward the platform I5.

The heel I3 is fixed to the shoe III by locating the platform I5 within the depression I2 of the leather heel ll after which the rubber heel is flexed by exerting pressure adjacent the center of the under surface I! and the heel is held in this position by driving a nail 20 therethrough to anchor in the leather portion II.

The under or wearing surface of the heel is, therefore, concave as best seen in Fig. 1 of the drawing, and intermediate the marginal portions I5 and the leather heel I I and the top surface of the platform I5 and the heel II, there is provided air pockets El and 22.

It will thus be seen that in View of the flexed position in which the heel is held by the nail 2U, resilience is added thereto thus lessening the shock to the wearer caused by the pounding of the heel upon a hard surface. This shock is further reduced by the provision of the air pockets 2! and 22 which act as cushions to absorb the shock given the outer surface of the heel.

This completes the description of the aforesaid illustrative embodiment of the rubber heels of the present invention. It will be noted from such description that the rubber heels of the present invention are simple in construction, easy and economical to fabricate and assemble, and admirably adapted to perform the intended functions. Other objects and advantages of the devices of the present invention will readily occur to those skilled in the art to which the present invention relates.

What I claim as my invention is:

1. In combination with a conventional heel provided with a depression in its outer surface, a rubber heel including a main body portion, cupped marginal portions formed with said main body portions, a locating platform rising from the inner surface of said main body portion and extending into the depression in the conventional heel, and means to aflix said main body portion to the conventional heel and hold the same in a flexed position.

2. In combination with a conventional heel provided with a depression in its outer surface, a rubber heel including a main body portion, cupped marginal portions formed with said main body portions, a locating platform rising from the inner surface of said main body portion and extending into the depression in the conventional heel, and means to aflix said main body portion to the conventional heel and hold the same in a flexed position, said cupped marginal portions and said locating platform cooperating with the adjacent surfaces of the conventional heel to form shock absorbing cushions.

ROCCO CONTICCHIO.
