Fig.2 is a'section on'the line'ze l "1 i 3 is a section takenfthrou'gh thejlongi udinal' central axis or the fastener on the line Fit-5.41s a detail view of the fas'tener before being applied to the boot;

. Fig. 5 is a detail view showing the inside of the upper closed or tubular part of the boot leg;

Fig. 6 is a view similar to Fig. l of a modification of the invention; and

Fig. 7 shows a portion of the boot leg with the tongue [9 secured to both edges of the slit.

Referring to Fig. 1 of the drawing, it will be seen that the boot is partly slit, that is to say, arranged to be opened at one side, from a point a short distance below the instep (but not extending to the toe) to a point below the top of the boot, the top being entirely closed. The front side portion and the rear side portion are arranged to lap past each other to close the slit and can be drawn to the closed position and held by a particular form of closure device comprising two series of fasteners and a single lace having its bottom end fastened to the bottom of the front side portion and arranged to run zig-zag through the respective fasteners as shown in Fig. 1. One series of fasteners is secured to the front side portion and the other series to the rear side inns, Mlinichl --ntmimaa'satm am, 1935,, Serial No. 100,062

This mayjbeabuttona's indicated at It. i 'I" l'1e'fastenersare of two kinds, namely an open type l2 and'ac1osedtype] IZff The opentype of V fastener has I a hook beneath which "the lacing passes' and from which it may be'fr'ele'ased, while thei closed type of fastener has an eyelet through whichthe lace passesandin whichi it will beheld against removafwhile freeto move longitudinally, lilach of the fasteners compris'esaplate or strip hjaving' a hole throu h which .3. rivet may \be passed to s'e'cure'l the plate to thejboot, theplate having; anYupturned and bent over portion, which inthe ffast en er of'the' open'type, I12, is bent' into the formfof' a hook, and intheclofs'ed type, lZfQis bent'into the shape offan an; to form an .eyelet, Eachffastenerlisheld to the leather of theboot by a rivet,mostadvantageously of the shoe or leather rivet type, each having a tubular female member provided witha head at its outer end, wi nn r. meI Tmemb arr n d. to b n sertedint'o the-tubular member and swa'ged to prevent withdrawal, the male member having a head bearing against the inside of the lining. The rivet holds the fastener to the leather and lining.

At the top of the series of fasteners secured to the rear'side portion of the boot there is a special fastener in the nature of a stud, or so-called pinch, l1, having a relatively large head, this stud being secured to the rear portion of the side of the boot. The lace after being pulled tight may be wrapped around this stud beneath its head, to firmly secure the lace.

In practice, a few of the fasteners, near the lower end of each series, are of the closed, or eyelet, type, l2, the others are of the open, or hook, type, I2, and the length of the lace, I3, is such that, when undone from the stud fastener, or pinch [1, it will furnish enough slack to allow it to be released from the hook fasteners, thus permitting the eyelet fasteners on the front side portion to be drawn away from the eyelet fasteners on the rear side portion of the boot, whereby the opening in the boot will allow the front and rear side portions of the boot to spread so as to allow thefoot of the wearer to pass down easily into the foot portion of the boot. Then by pulling the lacing through the eyelet fasteners to draw the rear side portion and the front side portions to their closed position, it may then be passed over the hooks ofthe hook fasteners and be Wrapped tightly around the stud fastener, or

pinch, thus firmly securing the overlapping side portions in closed position. Then by pulling up on the top end of the lace and swinging it toward one end of the strap, the slack of the fastener is drawn to the-top inside the boot and there held by friction under the strap.

The boot is also provided with loops by which it may be pulled on to the feet, as indicated at 18.

The top of the boot is a closed annular portion, or tube, M, of considerable depth. For example, in the semi-high boot it is about onefifth the height of the complete boot but may be higher if desired. It is intended to fit snugly;

but not too tightly to the calf of the leg of the wearer, and in any case to be large enough to allow the foot of the wearer to pass through iteasily.

To put the boot on, the lace is pulled downward at the upper end until the button, I6, is stopped by the strap, l5. Then the lace, I3 is unwound from the stud or pinch, H, which allows enough slack to permit the lace to be unhooked from the hook fasteners, L2. This loosens the lace so that it may'slide easily through the eyelets in the eyelet fasteners, l2, and allow thereon the front side portion to separate from those on the. rear side portion, leaving the boot free to bulge at the slit.

At this stage the boot is ready to be put on. The foot of the wearer may be slipped through the tubular top and as it reaches the slit portion of the leg of the boot, the latter will spread open to give plenty of room for the foot to pass down to its position in the foot of the boot. When the foot of the wearer is in place, it is only necessary to pull on the lace to draw together the rear and front side portions where the eyelet hooks are arranged. The lace is then hooked over the hook fasteners, drawn tight and wound around the stud or pinch. The button, I6, on the upper end of the lace, It, may be drawn up to take up the slack, and then pulled laterally to pinch the lace at one end of the strap where it fits tightly against the inside of the boot top.

It is obviousthat the boot can be put on in a very short time. In case of a sudden emergency it is not even necessary to stop to run the lace around the hooks of the hook fasteners, because the lace is held to the boot at both ends and cannot drag on the ground.

In the best embodiment of the invention, each hook fastener has its back curved inward transversely to reinforce the hook, as shown in the drawing, and the point of the hook is curved upward at the extreme end to make it easier to slip the lace into place beneath the hook.

Furthermore, in order tomake the boot substantially water-tight, a collapsible tongue, l9, (Fig. 7), inside the slit portion of the boot, may

be provided, this tongue consisting of a strip of soft leather having its vertical edges secured to the rear side portion and to the front side portion, the lowerv end of the tongue being secured to the toe portion whereby water cannot flow through the slit into the interior of the boot.

each other, said slitterminating at the lower edge of the saidtop portion where the upper portions of said frontand rear side portions are secured, a series of fasteners secured to the rear side portion,another series secured to'the front side portion, a single lace secured at its lower end to the boot and arrangedto pass zig-zagover the respective fasteners in the two series and through a hole in the lower part of the annular top 'to the inside of said top, a strap secured to the inside of the said annular top beneath which the upper portionfof the lace. passes, a button on the free end of-the lace and a pinch fastenerdevicesecured near the upper end of the slit around which the lace may be locked.
