s. H. GEFFNER 2259091 FOOT COVERI'NG Filed May 6, 1959 2 Sheets-Sheel 1 ls, 194.09 I s. Hi FOOT COVERING Filed May 6, 1939 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 fg i@ l 2%;

W fw/M" ATTORNEY Patented June 18, 1940 l UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 2 Claims.

This invention relates to a foot covering such as a shoe, slipper, or sandal, and it is one object of the invention to provide an article of this character having a main sole and an upper', the

5 upper being formed of washable or cleanable material and having a portion constituting an insole detachably united to the main sole. It will thus be seen that when the upper becomes soiled it may be detached from -the main sole and washed or otherwise cleaned and replaced.

Another object of the invention is to provide a shoe or other foot covering wherein the main sole and the combined upper and insole are detachably held in engagement with each other by slide fasteners of the zipper type, thus providing a irm connection but, at the same time, allowing easy and quick detachment when desired.

Another object of the invention is to provide a shoe wherein a plurality of uppers may be provided and selectively applied to the main soles, .thus permitting clean' uppers to be applied for use while others are being washed or cleaned and also permitting uppers of different styles to be selectively used.

Another object of the invention is to provide a shoe which is of light Weight, quite exible, and very comfortable when worn.

Another object of the invention is to enable the wearer to select any style upper and combine it with a most convenient type of lower sole or sole and heel.

The invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawings, wherein:

Fig. l is a view showing a shoe of the im proved construction in side elevation.

Fig. 2 is a top plan view thereof.

Fig. 3 is a View in top pian showing the de tachable upper removed.

Fig. i is a transverse sectional view taken on the line 5 4 of Fig. 2.

Fig. 5 is a perspective View of a modified form of shoe.

Fig. 6 is a view showing the shoe of Fig. -5 in top plan with the detachable upper removed.

Fig. 'I is a transverse sectional view taken on the line 'I-l of Fig. 5.

The foot covering constituting the subject matter of this invention may be a shoe, slipper, or the like, and has a main sole I which is formed of leather, rubber, cork, or other suitable material. The upper 2 is formed of washable or cleanable fabric and has a bottom 3, also lformed of .washable or cleanable fabric.

While the upper has been illustrated as con- (Cl. 3ER-2.5)

v of Woven fabric. 10

The upper is to be firmly but detachably connected with the main sole and thus allow it to be removed and thoroughly Washed and cleaned and replaced. This also allows foot coverings of this type to be sold as sets including a number of 15 uppers of diderent designs which will be selectively applied by the user. The means for detachably holding the upper .to the main sole consists of strips 9 and Ill sewed about margins of the insole or bottom 3 of the upper and the main sole and carrying inter-engageable slide fasteners Il and l2, these fasteners being inter-engaged with each other through the medium of a slide I3. It will thus be seen that the securing means for detachably holding the upper in engagement with the main sole is of the zipper type and serves to very firmly hold the upper in place while allowing easy and quick removal when so desired. A covering sheet I 4 of thin leather has been shown applied to the main sole and secured by stitches which hold the strip I6 in place, and between this sheet and the main sole is fitted an arch support pad I5. It is to be understood that, if so desired, the covering sheet may be omitted and the bottom or insole rest directly upon the main sole.

In Figs. 5, 6 and 7, there has been illustrated an embodiment of the invention wherein the up-7 per IE is of sock-like formation. This upper is also formed of knitted or woven fabric and when worn, its upper portion Il fits snugly about a persons ankle. The fabric strip I8 which corresponds to the fabric strip 9, is sewed to the bottom portion of the upper about margins thereof and the bottom I9 of the upper takes the 45 place of the bottom 3 and serves as an insole for the foot covering.

When this form of upper is applied to the main sole 20, the inter-engaging fastener members 2i of the strips I8 and 22 are inter-engaged with eachother by the slide 23 corresponding to the slide I3, and the upper will be firmly but detachably held in engagement with the main sole. No cover sheet, corresponding the sheet II, has been provided for the main sole 20 and 55 when the upper is connected to the main sole, it rests directly on the main sole and the arch supporting pad 2l. It will be understood that an upper of the type shown in Figs. l and 2, may be applied to the main sole of Figs. 5, 6 and 7. and also that an upper of the type shown in Figs. 5, 6 and I may be applied to the main sole shown in Figs. 1 through 44 o! the drawings. Either form of upper will be rmly held in place when applied to the main sole but may be very easily removed for washing and then replaced and another upper substituted in lieu of the one removed.

Having thus described the invention, what is claimed is:

l. In a foot covering, a main sole, an upper of washable or cleanable material, an insole connected to the upper formed of washable material, and means for removably uniting the upper to cluding a sole portion constituting an insole for l( the shoe. and means for removably uniting the upper to the main sole consisting of mounting strips of washable fabric secured to marginal portions of the insole and the main sole, interengageable slide fasteners carried by said strips, ll

and means for eecting detachable interengagement of the slide fasteners with each other.
