FIG.4-
. /NVENTC Peier Innerbickler CEMENT COBBLER This invention relates generally to footwear.
It is generally well known that many persons such as industrial workers, butchers, policemen, and the like who are obliged to stand or walk for long hours on hard cement walks, pavement, or floors complain of tired feet. This situation is of course objectionable and therefore in want of improvement.
It is the principal object of the present invention to provide a cement cobbler that comprises a novel type of footwear that eliminates the above described objection for people with tired feet due to standing or walking on cement surfaces.
Another object of the present invention is to provide a cement cobbler which incorporates a shoe secured upon a relatively thick sponge rubber lower sole so to throughly cushion the persons shoes from the concrete standing upon.
Another object of the present invention is to provide a cement cobbler wherein the sponge rubber lower sole can be readily and easily replaced after becoming worn out.
Other objects of the present invention are to provide a cement cobbler which is simplein design, inexpensive to manufacture, rugged in construction, easy to use and efficient in operation.
These and other objects will be readily evident upon a study of the following specification and the accompanying drawing wherein:
FIG. 1 is a side elevation view of a cement cobbler in an assemblied position,
FIG. 2 is a side elevation view of the shoe portion of the cement cobbler,
FIG. 3 is a bottom plan view of the shoe sole,
FIG. 4 is a top plan view of a sponge rubber lower sole of the cement cobbler and which is placed below the shoe component thereof, and
FIG. 5 is a side elevation view thereof and shown illustrating an adhesive backed tape incorporated there with.
Referring now to the drawing in detail, the reference numeral represents a cement cobbler according to the present invention wherein there is a shoe component 11 that is detatchably attached upon a lower sole 12.
The shoe component 11 is of a generally rain slipper configuration and is made of rubber material or the equivalent. The shoe component 11 includes a sole 13 which is configurated to the underside of a persons foot, the edges of the sole being integral with a lower edge ofa shoe upper 14 which is fitted around the sides of a persons foot, in a conventional manner.
The underside of the sole 13 is provided along its edge with its downwardly extending flange 15 for being fitted over the upper edge of the lower sole l2 and which serves to hide the enjoinment there with.
The lower sole 12 comprises a relatively thick one piece member made of sponge rubber material, .the lower sole 12 having a top surface 16 which is contoured to the underside 17 of the shoe sole 13.
Upon the upper sides 16 of the lower sole 12 there is placed an adhesive backed tape 18 so as to adhesively secure both to the shoe component and to the lower sole 12.
In securing the shoe component 11 to the lower sole 12, the flange 15 of the shoe component extends downwardly around the upper peripherial edge of the sole 12 so as to completely hide the adhesive backed tape 18 placed between the components 11 and 12. When it is desired to replace the lower sole 12 due to becoming worn out, a person himself may readily pull off the lower sole due to the adhesive backed tape and then simply replace the same with a fresh adhesive backed tape and new lower sole 12.
The cement cobbler due to its thick lower sole 12 provides comfort for persons who stand or walk allday long an a hard concrete or cement surface.
What I now claim is:
1. In a cement cobbler, a shoe component and a seperate lower sole component, said components being readily attached or detatched from each other to permit replacement of said lower sole after becoming worn out, said shoe componente comprising a rain slipper .type of footwear made of rubber, said shoe component including a sole which at its perpherial edges is joined with an upper, said sole being configurated to the bottom of a persons foot, and said upper being adapted to be folded around the sides of said persons foot, said lower sole comprising a relatively thick sponge rubber material having an upper side that is configurated to the contour of the lower side of said shoe component sole, a lower peripherial edge of said shoe component sole being provided with a downward extending flange for being fitted around the outer peripherial edge upper portion of said lower sole.
2. The cement cobbler as setforth in claim 1, wherein a replaceable adhesive backed tape is placed between said shoe component and said lower sole for adhesively securing said components together.
