PATENT OFFICE SHOE Jacob Fcin, New York, N. Y. Application November 18, 1938, Serial No. 240,674

2 Claims.

This invention relates to shoes. One object of the invention is to provide a shoe with an upper which is readily attachable to and removable from the shoe bottom.

' Another object of the invention is the provision of a shoe having an upper attached to the sole in such manner that the upper can be opened or loosened as the wearer may desire for the purpose of easing the pressure of the upper on the wearer's N objects which might hereinafter appear will be fully understood from the following description considered with reference to the accompanying drawing.

In the drawing:

26 Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a shoe'embodying the present invention;

Fig. 2 is a side view of the shoe illustrated in Fig. 1;

Fig. 3 is a sectional view on the line 3-2 of Fig. 4 is a perspective view of a shoe showing another form of the invention.

Referring'now to the drawing in detail, the shoe l6 embodying the present invention is here 86 shown as a ladys or girls low shoe, but-it will be understood as the description proceeds, that the invention applies as well to mens and boys shoes. Shoe l comprises an upper l2 and a bottom H, which includes in this form of the invention 40 an outsole I6, a heel It, a relatively thick insole 20 of cork or the like and a relatively thin middle sole 22. The parts of said shoe bottom It may be secured together adhesively, by stitching, or in any other suitable way. A rand 24 of suitable as material such as shoe upper leather or thin sole leather, or of suitable fabric, extends completely around the shoe at the marginal edge thereof. Said rand is secured, preferably adhesively, above the outsole and below the insole or more specifi- I cally, as here shown, between the outsole l6 and the middle sole 22.- A slide-fastener stringer 26 of conventional construction and carrying the usual slide-fastener elements 26, which are adapted to interlock with similar elements of a coml panion stringer, is stitched tqthe inside of the outwardly and upwardly projecting portion of rand-24. A companion stringer 30 also of conventional construction and carrying the fastener elements 32 is stitched to the inside of the lower edge of upper I2 completely therearound. The lining 34 of the upper has a portion 36 extending downwardly and completely around the shoe I tion 36 hangs as an apron from the upper into a space 31 between the outer peripheral edge 38 of the insole and the inner side of the upwardly projecting portion of rand 24, said insole 20 being sufllciently narrower than the outgaging and disengaging the interlocking ele- 20 the bottom ll of the shoe. The stringers are of separable end-connecting members 42 and 44 on stringers 30 and 26, respectively.

understood that upper l2 may be partially or wholly separated from bottom It by operating slider 46 to move the same longitudinally of the slide fastener stringers the amount necessary to accomplish the separation of the upper or a part thereof from the bottom of the shoe, as may be desired by the wearer. Thus, for example, when the wearer desires to loosen the upper, slider 40 can be moved for that purpose eration of the slider from a point at the inside shank of the shoe to the tip will be suflicient to provide the relief desired by the wearer, thereby making it unnecessary for the latter to remove the shoe, which was necessary in shoes as heretofore constructed. However, the wearer may move the slider to any other extent which may be 50 necessary to afford the desired degree of looseness of fit of the shoe on the wearer's foot.

It will be understood that by reason of the fact that the upper I2 is, as illustrated in Fig. 2, completely separable from the shoe bottom II, the

. to the edge of present invention provides convenient means for replacing one upper, such as the upper I! with a different upper or with an upper of a different type for obtaining various style effects or for changing the appearance of the shoe.

In the form of the invention illustrated in Fig. 1, the upper I2 is attachable to and removable from the shoe bottom It as a unit. It will be understood, however, that it is within the scope of the present invention to provide for the attachment and removal of only part of the upper or of parts of the upper independently of each other. For example, the shoe may comprise an upper formed of separate parts independently secured to the shoe bottom, and one or more of such parts of the upper may be permanently attached to the shoe while another of such parts may be detachably secured, or each of the independent parts of the upper may be independently secured to the shoe bottoms in detachable relation thereto. Thus for example, as illustrated in Fig. 4 of the drawing, the upper of the shoe comprises the forward part l2a and the rear part 12b, and as here shown, each of said parts of the upper is independently secured to the shoe bottom H by slide fasteners of the conventional type illustrated in reference to the form of the invention shown in Fig. 1. As here shown, forward part 12a of the upper has an open toe and is therefore provided with separate sets 50 and 52 of companion slide-fastener stringers of the completely separable type, the companion stringers of each set being provided with individual sliders 54 and 56, respectively, for engaging and disengaging the interlocking elements of the stringers. Similarly the heel part lZb of the upper being open at the heel is also provided with separate sets 58 and 60 of companion slidefastener stringers operated by independent sliders 62 and 64, respectively. The separable endconnecting members for the stringers of the upper parts Ma and i217 are indicated at 66 and 68, respectively, and it will be understood that the companion stringers of each set of stringers are completely separable from each other in the same way as are the stringers 26 and 30 provided in shoe I hereinabove described in reference to Figs. 1 to 3 of the drawing.

Thus it is seen that the shoes illustrated herein as embodiments of the invention are well adapted to accomplish the objects thereof. It will be understood that while I have illustrated and described several forms of the invention, the latter may be embodied otherwise than as here shown. It will be understood, also, that the underlying idea of the invention may be applied in other ways than those specifically illustrated herein. Thus, for example it is within the scope of the present invention to provide a shoe such as a pump, or other low shoe, with means for converting the same into a high shoe, and for this purpose a slide-fastener stringer may be attached the low shoe at the foot opening for fastening thereto an upwardly extending upper portion, the latter having at its lower edge a companion stringer, the interlocking elements of which are engaged and disengaged from the interlocking elements of the stringer attached at the foot opening of the low shoe. Other forms and variations of the invention will occur to those skilled in the art in view of the present disclosure. Therefore, I do not wish to be limited to the invention as here shown or described except as may be required by the scope of the appended claims..

Having thus described my invention, what I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:

1. A'shce comprising an upper andabottom, said bottom having an outsole and an insole, a rand secured to said bottomat the outer edge portion thereof below said insole and above said outsole, said rand having a vertically extending portion at the outside of the shoeJhe peripheral edge of said insole being spaced inwardly of said portion of the rand, a stringer of slide-fastener elements secured to said portion of the rand on the inner surface thereof and terminating in a free edge provided with vertically disposed fastener elements, a-companion stringer of slidefastener elements secured to the lower edge por tion of said upper and terminating in a free edge provided with vertically disposed fastener elements, a slider operable on said stringers for engaging and disengaging the elements of said companion stringers for detachably securing said upper to said shoe bottom, said stringers being completely separable from each other under the control of said slider to permit the detachment of said upper from said shoe bottom, said upperhaving a lining with a free edge portion overlying said fastener elements and extending into the space between said rand and the peripheral edge of said insole when said upper isconnected to said bottom of the shoe.

2. A shoe comprising an upper and a bottom, said bottom having an outsole and an insole, a rand secured to said bottom at the outer edge portion thereof below said insole and above said outsole, said rand having a vertically extending portion at the outside of the shoe, the peripheral edge of said insole being spaced inwardly of said portion of the rand, a stringer of slide-fastener elements secured to said portion of the rand on the inner surface thereof and terminating in a free edge provided with vertically disposed fastener elements, a companion stringer of slidefastener elements secured to the lower edge portion of said upper and terminating in a free edge provided with vertically disposed fastener elements, a slider operable on said stringers for engaging and disengaging the elements of said companion stringers for detachably securing said upper to said shoe bottom, said stringers being completely separable from each other under the control of said slider to permit the detachment of said upper from said shoe bottom, said upper having a lining with a free edge portion overlying said fastener elements and extending into the space between said rand and the peripheral edge of said insole when said upper is connected to said bottom of the shoe, said stringers of slidefastener elements extending substantially completely around the shoe and completely separable from each other whereby said upper is' completely detachable from said shoe bottom.
