Filed Nov. 9, 1942 INV structed in accordance i PatentedtAug. 31, 11943` T 'OFFICE 1 VsoLr': i

` i Lam-'mp Milmnfwitnerill, Pensacola'na. lApplication November-9, 1942, Serial No. 465,042

' zolaims, (o1.36` 59 1 This invention aims to` provide' a shoe sole which, ``as shown `in `the, drawing, comprses a body,:the` outline, longitudinal section and cross In carrying out the inventionV there is provided i a shoesole comprising a body fwhich, in outline,

section of which is a duplication of the tread sur- Vfaces of the heel,' arch, ball and toes of the hu- Vman' foot, the body being secured, if desired, to an attaching layer simulating the huban foot in outline. i

The advantage ofthe structure is that since'it is a duplication of the tread surface of the hu-jV g man foot, and since it is made of material'having approximately the resiliency of i the human foot,

.a firm hold on a walking surface will be secured, ;and slipping will be pre'vented.

The word "shoe as used hereinbefore and ticle of footwear of any desired sort:`

lon'gitudinal section. and cross section, is a du- `plication of the tread'surfaces of the heel, arch,

ball and toesof the human foot. i

The sole may include an attaching layer 2,

simulating the human foot in Outline, and whereunto the body IV is flrmly connectedi .the body and the layer preferably being formed integrally. 'I'he layer 2 extends` outwardly 'beyond iallj portions of the periphery of the body I.

hereinafter, is to be construed as meaning an art It is within-the provinceof the disclosure to improve generallyand to enhance the utility of f devices of that type ;to whichthepresent inven` tion appertains.

` sufilce, attention is directed to'the outlinegshown at 3 in Fig.` 1, to the toesv4, to the cavity 5 which- {islocated to the rear'` ofthe toes, to the ball 6,

`With the above and other objectsin view ,`which u will appear asthedescription proceeds, the in'- vention resides in theicombination and arrange- 1 ment'of parts and in' the details of construction hereinafter described andclaimed,V it being' understood that changes infthe precise embodiment I i of the invention herein disclosed, maybemade i t 1 within the scopeiof what is claimed, without, de- I 1parting from the spirit of thelinvention;

In the drawing: i

, Fig.,1 shows in bottom plan,` a shoe'sole con- With the inventlon; Fig. 2 isan elevation;

Fig. 3 is a longitudinalsection; Flg. 4 is a cross section on thetline 4-4 of Fig. 1; 2 i

Fig. 5` is across section onthe line 5-5 of Fig. 1. I

'I'hematerial used in making the device pref- `ierablz; has about the sameresiliency as the human foot. Rubber, a rubber composition, or the like may be employed.

w Aitnqugn the bare statement that the body is a duplication vof, the tread surfacesj` of theheel,

arch, lball and toes of` the human foot, might Vto the concavity 1 of the arch,and to the -heel 8.

` The device is simple in construction, but it affords `a simple and highly useful anti-slipping shoe sole. i

What is claimed is: 1. A shoe sole comprising a body which,rin

outline, longitudinal section and cross section, is

a duplication of the `tread surfaces of the heel, arch, ball and toes of ,thethuman foot.

2. Ashoe sole constructedas setforth in claim 1,- in combination with an` attaching layer simulating the human foot in outIIne, and whereunto periphery of the body.

'i {extending outwardly the bodyis firmlyconnected, theattaching layer beyond all portions ofV the LA'mRor mrl'roN wrrHERnn
