Sept. 9., 1958 A. F. WILLIAMEE ARCH SUPPORT Fild oct. 18, 195e www ma United States Patent O ARCH SUPPORT Adrian F. Williamee, St. Marys, Pa.

Application October 18, 1956, Serial No. 616,725

1 Claim. (Cl. 36--8.5)

This invention relates to arch supports. An object of this invention is to provide an improved arch support in the form of an insert for a shoe, such as an oxford, with the insert including means for holding the same against movement in the shoe.

Another object of this invention is to provide an arch support embodying a yieldable cushion carried by a flexible sheet with the sheet so shaped as to extend upwardly along the side of the foot whereby the shoe lacing may be threaded through the extensions so as to thereby hold the support in proper position.

With the foregoing and other objects in view which will appear as the description proceeds, the invention consists of certain novel details of construction and combinations of parts, hereinafter more fully described and pointed out in the claim, it Ibeing understood that changes may be made in the construction and arrangement of parts without departing from the spirit of the invention as claimed.

Referring to the drawing:

Figure 1 is a detail side elevation of the shoe partly broken away and in section having an arch support constructed according to an embodiment of this invention mounted therein.

Fig. 2 is a bottom plan view of the support.

Fig. 3 is a sectional view taken on line 3-3 of Fig. 2.

Fig. 4 is a fragmentary sectional view taken on line 4-4 of Fig. 1.

Referring to the drawing the numeral designates generally a shoe which includes an upper 11 having a sole 12 and a heel 13. The upper 11 is provided with eyelets 14 through which a lacing 15 is threaded.

An arch support generally indicated at 16, is mounted within the shoe 10 and comprises a exible body 17 having a body 18 with a forwardly projecting extension 19. The body 17 is formed with a pair of laterally projecting tongues 20 and 21 and the tongues 20 and 21 have pairs of openings or eyelets 22 and 23, respectively, the purpose for which will be hereinafter described. A cushion member 24 which is formed of sponge rubber or the like is secured to the lower side of the sheet 17 and is provided with an upwardly bulged or thickened intermediate portion 25. The cushion member 24 is of substantial egg shape and is provided with a rearwardly projecting portion 26 secured to the rear portion 19 of the sheet 17. The cushion member 24 is of less width 2,850,813 Patented Sept. 9, 1958 ICC than length of the shoe 17 so that when the device is disposed within the shoe the projecting portions 27 which extend laterally from the extension 26 will bend downwardly so as to engage over the outer edges of the cushion extension 26. At the rearward end of the cushion member 24 the body 18 also projects beyond the rearward portion of the cushion 24 as indicated at 28, and the projecting marginal portion 28 is adapted upon being subjected to pressure by weight of a foot to press downwardly onto the insole 29 within the shoe 10.

The tongue 21 is adapted to be disposed on the inner side of the foot, whereas the tongue 20 is adapted to Ibe disposed on the outer side of the foot. When the support is in applied position the lacing 15 is threaded through selected ones of the openings or eyelets 22 and 23 and then extended through the rear eyelets 14 of the shoe upper 11. In this manner the shoe lacing 15 will firmly hold the support 16 within the shoe and on the lower side of the foot. The rear extension 26 provides a cushion or support for the metatarsal arch and the enlarged intermediate portion 25 provides a support for the transverse arch. The side portions of the cushion member 24 provide a support for the inner and Outer longitudinal arches of the foot.

With a support as hereinbefore described, the arch support will be firmly held against movement beneath the foot so that the support cannot shift while the user is walking.

What is claimed is:

A removable adjustable arch support for insertion in a shoe having shoe laces, comprising a flexible body, laterally projecting tongues ofreduced widths extending from opposite sides of said body, each tongue having a plurality of vertically aligned apertures through which the lacing of the shoes is adapted selectively to be threaded, drawing the arch support into contact with the arch of the foot on which the support is positioned, said tongues in the applied position of said body extending upwardly on the inner and outer sides of the foot and terminating a substantial distance below the uppermost lace opening of the shoe, a forward extension carried by said body engageable beneath the metatarsal arch portion of the foot, and a resilient cushion member secured to the lower side of said body.
