Application April 19, 1941, Serial No. 389,276

1 Claim.

The present invention relates to an improved article of footwear, and to a method of manufacturing the same.

The main object of our invention is to provide an improved and novel article of footwear for beach or sport use, which article of footwear is of simple and economical construction.

Another object of our invention is to provide an article of footwear having a woven or knitted upper and a sport or beach type of outer sole.

Still another object of our invention is to provide an improved article of footwear wherein the upper is formed of an ordinary woven or knitted sock, thus providing an economical article of footwear.

Another object of our invention is to provide a method of forming an article of footwear having a woven or knitted upper, which method is both economical and simple.

Still another object of our invention is to provide a method of forming an article of footwear employing as an upper an ordinary sock.

Other objects of our invention will be set forth in the following description and drawing which illustrate certain preferred embodiments, it being understood that the above statement of the objects of our invention is intended generally to explain the same without limiting it in any manner.

Fig. 1 is a side elevational view of our improved article of footwear;

Fig. 2 is a top plan view thereof, with part of the upper and part of the insole broken away;

Fig. 3 is a sectional view along line 3-3 of Fig. 2; and

Fig. 4 is a sectional view along line 4-4 of f Fig. 2.

Referring to the drawing, U designates the upper, and consists of a woven or knitted sock I having an elastic top portion 2. 'Ihe bottom of said sock has a longitudinal opening formed therein surrounded by the bottom horizontal peripheral border 3 of the sock. Any ordinary woven or knitted sock commonly in use may be employed for this purpose, which sock has its bottom slit and an opening formed therein so that the same may be shaped to conform to the sole of the finished article.

The inner sole 5 consists of a top' layer 6 of terry-cloth or any other such similar material, and a bottom layer I of buckram or any such suitable material which may be readily adhered or cemented directly to a rubber sole. 'I'he upper layer 6 and lower layer 'I of the insole 5 are preferably suitably cemented or adhered together along their adjacent faces.

` The outer peripheral edges of the inner sole 5 are surrounded by the loop portion 8 of the bottom part of the sock I, and surrounding said loop portion along its entire peripheral edge is a suitable binding material I0, said binding material l0, the loop portion 8 and the edge II of the inner sole being suitably sewn together by a row of stitches I2. The binding I0 may be of the same color or of a contrasting color to the color of the sock I, thus enhancing the appearance of the finished article.

An outer sole member I4 consisting of crepe rubber or any other similar separate sole is secured to the bottom face of the complete upper, the buckram undersole l, edge 3 of the sock I, and the bottom face of the binding I0 being in contact with the top face of the outer sole I4.

We assemble and form our new article of footwear as follows:

An ordinary woven, knitted or any other type of sock I may be used and the bottom thereof longitudinally slit from substantially the toe portion to the heel portion thereof. The slit bottom of the sock is then looped around the peripheral edge of the preshaped inner sole member 5 and is spread and so adjusted that the slit edge is substantially close to and parallel to the peripheral edge of the inner sole member. Thereafter the looped edge 8 of the sock I and the enclosed edge II of the inner sole 5 are bound together by the binding I0 by means of a row of stitches I2 passing through said binding I0, innersole edge Il and loop 8.

We then t the assembled upper over a suitable last and by means of sufllcient pressure and heat, apply the outer crepe sole member I4 which has been superimposed upon the bottom face of the formed upper. This last operation of securing a crepe sole to an inner sole by means of heat and pressure is well known in the art.

We have found that in forming our new article of footwear from, for example, a size 91/2 sock, the resulting size is 9, that is, generally a half size smaller than the initial sock.

We have shown a preferred embodiment of nur invention, but it is clear that numerous changes and omissions can be made Without departing from its spirit.

For example, we have shown the outer sole I4 applied to the upper by means of heat and pressure, but it is quite obvious that the same may be applied by means of any suitable cement or adhesive.

I I I The term "ordinary soc as used in the appendedclaimsmeansanyusualorordinary woven or knitted sock, either with or without an elastic top portion.

We claim:

In an article of footvrear oi the character dev eral edge ot the sock being looped around the outer peripheral edges of the inner sole member,

said binding strip in turn surrounding the looped portion of said sock and the outer peripheral edges of said inner sole member. a row oi stitches passing through said binding strip, said inner sole member and the looped portion oi said sock. an outer sole member secured to the bottom of said inner sole member, the bottom, i'ace oi the 1n binding strip being in contact and abutting the top face oi said outer sole member.
