SANDAL WITH VAMP PIECE SPACED ABOVE SOLE Filed Jan. 4, 1949 INVENTOR. Cesar- GG. Ca mero,

ATTORNEYS.

Patented May 8, 1951 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE SANDAL WITH VAMP PIECE SPACED ABOVE SOLE 3 Claims.

beach wear.

An object of my invention is to provide an improved sandal.

A further object is to provide an improved sandal which includes a vamp and a sole together with novel means for adjustably securing the Vamp and sole together.

A further object is to provide an improved sandal including a vamp and a sole, means on the sole providing, loops extending upwardly thereof, and a single lace alternately laced through the Vamp and the loops to adjustably secure the vamp to the sole.

Other objects and advantages reside in the particular structure of the invention, combination and arrangement of the several parts thereof, and will be readily understood by those skilled in the art upon reference to the attached drawing in connection with the following specification,

wherein the invention is shown, described and claimed.

In the drawing:

Figure 1 is a perspective view of the sandal according to the invention;

Figure 2 is a plan view thereof, parts being broken away to show structural details;

Figure 3 is a transverse vertical sectional view taken substantially on the planes of the line 3 3 of Figure 2.

Referring specifically to the drawing, wherein like reference characters have been used throughout the several views to designate like parts, the sandal according to the invention comprises a sole lo composed of an upper ply Il and a lower ply i2. The upper ply II is formed with a marginal series of spaced perforations I3 which are generally located on side portions of the forward portion of and forwardly of the heel portion of the upper ply. A single thong is laced through the perforations i3 to provide a marginal series of spaced loops It extending upwardly of the upper ply and connecting portions l5 disposed between the plies Il and I2. The thong includes free ends which may be tied together at any suitable location, as shown in Figure 2. The plies ll and I2 are connected together in any suitable manner, as by adhesive I 6, Figure 3. Also, I prefer to provide supplemental means connecting the plies together, such as the line of stitching l1. Moreover, it should be noted that the line of stitching at times passes through the portions I5 of the thong whereby to anchor the thong in position.

The sandal also includes a Vamp which preferably is formed of relative soft sheet material corresponding in area to the forward portion of the sole, The upper surface of the vamp 29 may be ornamented in any suitable manner. The vamp 2U is provided along opposite side edges with rows of spaced holes 2| which may be protected by eyelets 22. A single lace 23 is alternately laced through the holes 2i and the loops i4 whereby to adjustably and spacedly connect the Vamp 20 to the sole lt. The lace 23 includes free end portions which pass through the loops and holes, and terminal portions 24 which are adapted to be tied together to secure the vamp in a selected spaced relation to the sole. Also, it is contemplated that the terminal portions 24 of the lace 23 are adapted to be crossed in front of the ankle and led along opposite sides of the ankle and tied at the back of the ankle, whereby to secure the sandal to the foot.

Thus, it is apparent that the lower ply l2 protects the thong from wear, the supplemental fasteners I1 anchor the thong in place, and the lace 23 provides a convenient means for adjusting the Vamp to the foot of the wearer, whereby a snug t is secured in all instances.

While I have shown and described what is now thought to be a preferred embodiment of the invention, it should be understood that the same is susceptible of other forms and expressions. Consequently, I do not limit myself to the precise structure shown and described hereinabove except as hereinafter claimed.

I claim:

1. A sandal comprising a sole having a forward portion and a rearward heel portion, longitudinally extending and longitudinally spaced loops extending along opposite side edges of said forward portion on the upper side of said forward portion, a vamp comprising a flexible sheet of an area substantially corresponding to and spacedly overlying said forward sole portion, said vamp being formed along each opposite side edge with a row of holes, the holes being positioned between the loops along the corresponding side edges of the forward sole portion, and a single lace threaded through the rows of holes in the vamp with portions thereof between the holes threaded through the loops in the forward sole portion, said single lace having an intermediate portion extending across the forward end of the vamp between the rows of holes and free end portions extending rearwardly from the rear ends of the rows of holes and crossed thereat to define terminal portions arranged to be brought rearwardly over said heel portion along the sides 0f the ankle of a wearer and tied together at the back of the ankle so as to constrict and confine the vamp on the forepart of the foot of the wearer.

2. In a sandal, a sole having a forward portion and a rearward heel portion, longitudinally spaced loops spaced along the opposite side edges of said forward portion, a flexible vamp comprising a sheet substantially conforming in shape to and spaced above said forward sole portion and terminating in longitudinally spaced relation to said heel portion, said vamp being formed along its opposite side edges with rows of longitudinally spaced holes with said loops positioned between adjacent holes, and a single lace having an intermediate portion extending between the forward ends of said rows of holes and overlying a forward part of said Vamp, said single lace having free end portions threaded rearwardly through said rows of holes, said free end portions having terminal portions extending rearwardly from the rear ends of said rows of holes, portions of said free end portions of the lace between adjacent holes in the rows being threaded through corresponding ones of the loops on the forward sole portion.

3. In a sandal, a sole having a forward portion and a rearward heel portion, longitudinally spaced loops spaced along the opposite side edges of said forward portion, a flexible vamp comprising a sheet substantially conforming in shape to and spaced above said forward sole portion and terminating in longitudinally spaced relation to said heel portion, said vamp being formed along its opposite side edges with rows of longitudinally spaced holes with said loops positioned between adjacent holes, and a single lace having an intermediate portion extending between the forward ends of said rows of holes and overlying a forward part of said vamp, said single lace having free end portions threaded rearwardly through said rows of holes, said free end portions having terminal portions extending rearwardly from the rear ends of said rows of holes, portions of said free end portions of the lace between adjacent holes in the rows being threaded through corresponding ones of the loops on the forward sole portion, said terminal portions being crossed at a point behind said vamp and in front of said heel portion and arranged to be passed along opposite sides of and secured behind the ankle of a wearer of the sandal.
