SANDAL WITH STRAP RECEIVING, CHANNELED SOLE Filed Dec. 20, 1948 r 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 J 0 sep h F el/o INVENTOR.

Patented Oct. 24, 1950 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE SANDAL WITH STRAP-RECEIVING, CHANNELED SOLE 9 Claims.

This invention relates generally to footwear and more particularly to a sandal comprising a sole with vertical and oppositely disposed apertures through the sole arranged in spaced relation in lines generally following the curved edges of the sole and spaced within said edges, the sole having channels on the bottom thereof including transversely open channels, and straps threaded through transversely opposite apertures and the corresponding transverse channels and dimensioned to loop over the adjacent portions of the foot of a wearer.

The objects of this invention include the provision of a sandal in which straps of varied design may be used to secure the sole upon the foot of a wearer, these straps being removable and replaceable with ease.

Another object of this invention is to provide a sandal of the type mentioned above and in which the straps will not become unduly disarranged or separated from the sole when the sandal is removed from the foot, thus facilitating the replacement of the sandal on the foot.

Another object of this invention is to provide 'a sandal which will be extremely comfortable,

the straps being adjustable and/or provided with elastic portions which allow the straps to yield with the foot of the wearer during use.

The last object to be mentioned specifically is to provide a sandal construction which is relatively inexpensive and practicable to manufacture, which is attractive in appearance, very convenient to use, and which will give generally efficient and durable service.

With these objects definitely in view, this invention resides in certain novel features of construction, combination and arrangement of elements and portions as will be hereinafter described in detail in the specification, particularly pointed out in the appended claims, and illustrated in the accompanying drawings which form a material part of this application, and in which:

Figure 1 is a three dimensional view of a sandal constructed according to this invention and positioned upon a foot of a wearer;

Figure 2 is an enlarged bottom plan view of the sandal illustrated in Figure 1;

Figure 3 is a vertical transverse sectional view, taken substantially upon the line 33 in Figure 2;

Figure 4 is a three dimensional view of a sandal in which a single relatively elongated strap is used, and this figure may be considered as a diagrammatic representation of the form of sandal illustrated in'Figure 8;

Figure 5 is a top plan view of the sole;

Figure 6 is a three dimensional view of a modified form of strap construction used with the same sole as that illustrated in the preceding figures; and

Figures 7, 8, 9 and 10 are three dimensional views of sandals using a single elongated strap threaded through the apertures and channels of the sole to provide four difierent designs representative of many other possible designs capable of being achieved by the use of this invention.

Similar characters of reference designate similar or identical elements and portions throughout the specification and throughout the different views in the drawings.

Referring now to the drawings in detail, this invention includes a sole it, including a wear sole, with an integral heel portion !2. It is proposed to construct the wear sole of rubber, leather or similar material and it is preferred that lines i i and it should be formed on the edges of a rubber sole and the heel to simulate layered construction, these line being easily achieved by deformation in the molds used in the construction of the sole.

A plurality of substantially vertical apertures 18 are provided in the sole and arranged in transversely oppositely disposed pairs and in spaced relation in lines generally following the curved edges of the sole and spaced within these edges. Similar apertures 26 are provided in the sole near the point of juncture thereof with the heel portion 52. A pair of curved channels 22, open toward the bottom of the sole, extend from points immediately rearward of the apertures 20 forwardly along the edges of the sole and spaced within these edges to communicate with each of the apertures i8 and these channels extend slightly forwardly beyond the forwardmost of these apertures I8. Transversely disposed channels 24 extend between the pairs of oppositely disposed apertures 93 and 2B and, of course, communicate with the channels 22.

Straps are used to secure the sole to the foot of a wearer, the strap indicated generally by the numeral 26 being represented as used with straps 28 and '36 which are simplified forms of the strap 26 and the strap 25 may be thought of as being patentably generic to the straps 28 and 39. Another form of strap is indicated in Figures 4, '7, 8, 9 and 10 and is identified by the numeral 32, while still another form of straps is indicated by the numeral 3i and represented in Figure 6.

The strap 26 includes a pair of inelastic upper portions 36 secured together by a buckle 38 and having a pair of tongues 40 on the outer and lower ends of each portion 36 dimensionally adapted to be at least partially inserted through a pair of adjacent apertures l8. The lower ends of these tongues 40 are secured to elastic portions 42 which are turned inwardly within the channels 24 and connected together by fastening means 44 which may be of hook and eye character or of any other suitable character. The strap 28 is constructed similarly to the strap 26 except that the inelastic portion is not bifurcated and only one pair of elastic portions is associated therewith. The strap 30 is similar to the strap 28 except that it is elongated to allow it being fastened around the ankle of the wearer.

The relatively elongated strap 32 is threaded through the apertures [8 so that a portion 46 is looped over the toe portion of the foot of a H wearer, and other portions are looped upwardly illustrated in Figure 4 at 48. Although several different designs may be achieved by the use of this elongated strap 32, the design illustrated in Figures 4 and 8 includes portions 50 which extend from the rearmost apertures 20 around the rear of the ankle, as indicated at 50, while the ends 52 are threaded through the looped portions 43 and thereafter tied together.

The strap construction indicated at 34 in Figure 6 includes an inelastic upper portion 54 with a, pluralit of tongues similar to the tongues 49 indicated in Figure l and identified by the same reference numeral in Figure 6, together with a complement of elastic portions similar to those indicated at 42 in Figures 2 and 3, and elongated straps 56 which are fixed at their forward ends to the inelastic strap portion -4 and provided with a buckle 58 whereby they are fastened together about the ankle of the wearer. If preferred, another strap member 6!. may be provided to extend through the rearmost apertures and through the corresponding transverse channel 24, this strap 60 having loops 62, one on each end thereof, to receive intermediate portions of the elongated strap 56, Figure 6 showing only one side of this member 6!]. Finally, it may be noted that the sole ii? is provided with an aperture 64 which may be used to receive a portion of a strap 32 when still other designs are desired, and it will also be noted that certain of the apertures !8 may be unused, as indicated in Figures 1, 2 and 9. In this connection, it may be noted that the straps 26 and 28 may be shifted forwardly or rearwardly with the tongues 40 inserted in the desired apertures l8, according to the fancy or necessity of the wearer. It will also be noted that more than one looped portion 46 may be used, as indicated in Figures 9 and 10, and diiferent methods of threading the elongated strap 32 may be employed, no attempt being made in this application to claim all possible methods of threading the elongated strap 32 into the apertures l8 and 20.

It is important to note that the channels 22 cooperate with the channels 24 in providing a non-slip tread on the bottom of the sole 10, the channels 22 being particularly adapted to prevent lateral sliding motion of the sandal when a slippery surface is being traversed, and the channels 22 also allow the threading of an elongated strap 32 from one operture 8 to an adjacent aperture on the same side of the sole, as in ill) 4 s achieving designs such as those indicated in the drawings.

The operation of this invention will be clearly understood from a consideration of the foregoing description of the mechanical details of the invention and further description would appear unnecessary.
