PATENTEU JAN 41972 INVENTOR. CHARLES C. BRETTELL' Fig.2

MULTIPLE-USE POUCH BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION It is frequently desired to carry emergency items of small bulk such as shoestrings, a few coins or a pair of hose in a separate container or pouch. The prior art indicates that devices of this nature have been associated with shoes generally on the outside thereof or enclosed in the heel or sole. Such devices are permanently attached and not adaptable for use in other situations. There exists a need for a pouch which can, with little or no modification, be attached to a shoe in an inconspicuous location, or be separately carried.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION The instant invention, as claimed, meets this need. It consists essentially of a small pouch, constructed of any suitable material, which can be secured to the inside of a shoe. The securing means may be permanent, as by sewing, or detachable as by pressure-sensitive adhesive.

FIG. 1 is a perspective view of the pouch;

FIG. 2 is an enlarged sectional view taken on line 2-2 of FIG. 1;

FIG. 3 is a side elevation view of a typical shoe, partially cut away, show attachment of the pouch to the tongue; and

FIG. 4 is an underside view of a tongue showing an alterna' tive means for securing the pouch.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF A PREFERRED EMBODIMENT As shown in FIG. 1 the pouch 1 consists of two panels, a front panel 2 and a back panel 3 marginally connected at three sides by any suitable means such as cementing or stitching. One side of the pouch, the top as shown in FIG. 1, is left open to form a pocket for the reception of small articles, herein illustrated as shoe laces4 although other articles of an emergency nature could be carried therein. The pouch I, may be made of any suitable material from which shoe uppers are made such as light leather, canvas or cloth.

The back panel 3 is provided with a layer of pressure-sensitive adhesive 5 to which is secured an overlay in the fonn of two peelable portions 6 and 7. Normally the layer of adhesive 5 is covered by the portions 6 and 7. When it is desired to secure the pouch in position on a shoe or the like, the portion 6 and 7 are peeled back from the center as shown by the dotted lines in FIG. 2 exposing the pressure-sensitive adhesive 5 and the pouch is secured in any desired position on a shoe or the like by placing the adhesive layer in contact with the shoe.

FIGS. 3 and 4 show a preferred embodiment of the invention as applied to a shoe. Since the pouch is relatively thin, it can readily be applied to the inside of the tongue 8 of a shoe 9, by peeling back the portions 6 and 7 to expose the adhesive layer 5 and pressing the pouch on the tongue with the adhesive layer 5 in contact therewith. If the pouch 1 is to become a permanent part of the shoe it may be applied by stitching the marginal portions thereof to the underside of the tongue as shown at 10.

While I have shown my improved pouch secured to the tongue of a shoe it is to be understood that it may be applied to any position on the inside of a shoe where it does not interfere with wearers foot.

I claim:

1. Structure including, in combination, a shoe with a tongue, a pouch and a shoelace in said pouch, and said pouch being lightly stiched to said tongue of the shoe so that the pouch is more surely attached for initial merchandising of the shoe and, if desired, initial use of the shoe and attached pouch;

said pouch having a front panel;

a back panel marginally connected to the front panel except at one side to define a pocket with an opening;

a layer of adhesive on the outer surface of said back panel;

and

an overlay on said adhesive capable of being peeled and folded back to expose the adhesive for selective securement of the panel to the tongue of a shoe or the like and capable of being refolded onto the adhesive to mask the same when the panel is being handled, stored and/or separately carried, whereby said capabilities can be exercised repeatedly and alternatively.

Claims (1)

1. Structure including, in combination, a shoe with a tongue, a pouch and a shoelace in said pouch, and said pouch being lightly stiched to said tongue of the shoe so that the pouch is more surely attached for initial merchandising of the shoe and, if desired, initial use of the shoe and attached pouch; SAID POUCH HAVING A FRONT PANEL; A BACK PANEL MARGINALLY CONNECTED TO THE FRONT PANEL EXCEPT AT ONE SIDE TO DEFINE A POCKET WITH AN OPENING; A LAYER OF ADHESIVE ON THE OUTER SURFACE OF SAID BACK PANEL; AND AN OVERLAY ON SAID ADHESIVE CAPABLE OF BEING PEELED AND FOLDED BACK TO EXPOSE THE ADHESIVE FOR SELECTIVE SECUREMENT OF THE PANEL TO THE TONGUE OF A SHOE OR THE LIKE AND CAPABLE OF BEING REFOLDED ONTO THE ADHESIVE TO MASK THE SAME WHEN THE PANEL IS BEING HANDLED, STORED AND/OR SEPARATELY CARRIED, WHEREBY SAID CAPABILITIES CAN BE EXERCISED REPEATEDLY AND ALTERNATIVELY.
