TOE PROTECTING SHIELD FOR SHOES Filed Aug. 2, 1941 lNVENTOR f- ',l/ ATTORNEY Patented Aug. 4, 1942 TOE PROTECTING'SHIELD FOR SHOES Edward sherlock. Brooklyn, N. Y. Application August 2, 14941, Serial No. 405,156

6 Claims. 'I'his invention relates to new and useful improvements in a toe protecting shield for open` toe shoes.

More specically, the invention proposes to characterize the toe protecting shield by a conl struction which may be engaged over ones stockings and over the toes, and into the shoe so as to project from the normally open toe portion of the shoe and thus protect the foot.

Still further the invention proposes that -the protecting shield having a top arched section with diverging sides for engaging the sides and top walls of the vamp of the shoe when its front portions projects from the open toe of the shoe. It is also proposed that the shield be provided with a iat bottom section attached to the bottom edges of the arched top section and adapted to rest on the top face of the insole of the shoe.

Still further the invention proposes a novel arrangement for preventing water under certain conditions from entering the open toe portion of a shoe provided with a protecting shield constructed in accordance with a modified form of this invention.

Another object of the invention is the construction of a device as mentioned which is simple and durable and may be constructed and sold at a reasonable cost.

For further comprehension of the invention, and of the objects and advantages thereof, reference will be had to the following description and accompanying drawing, and to the appended claims in which the various novel features of the invention are more particularly set forth.

In the accompanying drawing forming a material part/of this disclosure:

Fig. 1 is a side elevational view of a ladys shoe having an open toe and provided with a toe protecting shield constructed in accordance with this invention.

Fig. 2 is a fragmentary plan view of Fig. 1.

Fig. 3 is a perspective view of the toe'protecting shield, illustrated per se.

Fig. 4 is a vertical sectional view taken on the line 4 4 of Fig. 3.

Fig. 5 is a perspective view of the blank from which the top arched section of the shield is constructed.

Fig. 6 is a perspective view of one of the blanks from which the bottom flat section is constructed.

Fig. 7 is a similar view to Fig. 3 but illustrating another form of the invention.

Fig. 8 is a vertical sectional view taken on the' 55 coact with the adjacent portions of the shoe to line 8-8 of Fig. 7.

Fig. 9 is a fragmentary vertical sectional view of an open toe shoe provided with a toe protecting shield constructed in accordance with another form of this invention.

Fig. 10 is a fragmentary perspective view of one of the waterproong strips used in Fig. 9.

Fig. 11 is a fragmentary sectional view similar to Fig. 9 but illustrating another modified form of the invention.

10 'I'he toe protecting shield for open toe shoes, in

accordance with this invention, includes a top arched section I I) having diverging sides Ill8L and a diverging top wall Iilb. The shield is also provided with a flat bottom section II attached to 15 the bottom edges of the said arched top section I0 and adapted to rest on the top face of the insole of a shoe.

The top arched section I0 is formed from a blank I0', as illustrated in Fig. 5. 'I'his blank has several notches I2 along its edges to facilitate bending in of the edge portions thereof, to-l wards the bottom flat section II. The bottom section II is made from two blanks II' (see Fig. 6) whichare superimposed upon each other as illustrated in Figs. 3 and 4. The edge portions of the blank I0' are engaged in between the edge portions of the blanks II'. 'I'he contacting parts of these blanks are cemented together.

In Figs. 1 and 2 a shoe I5 has been illustrated of the type having an open toe I6. 'I'he protecting shield, in accordance with this invention, is shown applied to the shoe in a position it would assume when it is engaged over a stocking and over the toe, with the foot engaged in the shoe.

Particular attention is called to the fact that because of the diverging side walls IllEl and top wall Ib the toe protecting shield fits tightly into the open toe portion I6 of the vamp of the shoe I5. Preferably, the toe protecting shield should be constructed of leather or other relatively stiif materials so that it maintains its position as illustrated. f

In Fig. 7, the bottom section II is formed with a hollow or open central area II so as to form narrow strip portions IIb adjacent the diverging sides IU' of the top arched section I0.

'Ihis arrangement will permit the toe protecting shield `to spread and to ll a larger toe opening in the shoe.

In Figs. 9 and 10 a modied form of the invention is disclosed which distinguishes from the prior form in the fact that weather proong strips Il and I8 are mounted upon the outside of the sections of the toe protecting shield and prevent or assist in preventing, the entrance of moisture into the shoe. More specifically, the

parts are so arranged that when the 'toe protectlng shield is used in conjunction with the shoe,

the strip I8 nestles into the strip I1, as illustrated in Fig. 7, that is, it rests against the rear shoulder of the front edge portion I1, and furthermore rests upon the relativelythin rear portion I1b ofthe strip-l1.

The'strips I1 and I8 preferably should be constructed of soft rubber, or other similar material which will not hurt the foot when the article is being used. At the same time these `strips must .be of such material as to aid in keeping,

out moisture 4from the shoe.

In Fig. 1l still another modified form of the invention has been disclosed which is very similar to the form shown in Figs. 8 and 9 distinguishing merely in the fact that a hook 2li is mounted upon the top portion of the top arched section I0 of the toe protecting shield and releasabiy engages an eyelet 2l mounted through the vamp portion of the. shoe I5. The hook 20 and eyelet 2i assists in holding the toe protecting shield in position. v

It is to be understood thatY this toe protecting shield may be made of leather, imitation leather, plastics, or of any suitable composition and manufactured in various sizes, shapes and color combinations.

While I have illustrated and described the preferred embodiments of my invention, it is to be understood that I do not limit myself to the precise constructions herein disclosed and the right is reserved to all changes and modications coming Within the scope of the invention as defined in the appended claims.

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

1. A toe protecting shield for open toe shoes, comprising a top arched section having diverging sides for engaging the side and top walls of the vamp of a shoe when its front portion projects from the open toe of said shoe, and a bottom flat seclion attached to the bottom edges of said arched section and adapted to rest on the top face of the insole of said shoe, said bottom fiat section being formed of superimposed layers.
