4 Claims, 2 Drawing Figures GOLF SANDAL SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION My invention relates to a unique andhjovelsandal An object of my present invention is to provide a golf I sandal worn in combination with a golf shoe, wherein the golf sandal protects a floor from damage by the spike members of the golf shoe.

A further object of my present invention is to provide a golf sandal, wherein a hard rubber lower sole of the golf sandal prevents the spike members from piercing through the golf sandal.

A still further object of my present invention is to provide a means of securing the golf sandal to the golf shoe.

Another object of my present invention is to provide a golf sandal of simple design.

Briefly, my present invention comprises a golf sandal having a lower flexible hard rubber sole joined to an upper soft rubber sole, wherein the combination has a forward sole portion, a shank portion, and a rearward heel portion. A top surface of the upper sole has a plurality of recessed openings therein, wherein the spike members of the golf shoe insert downward into the recessed openings as the sole section of the golf shoe engages the upper sole of the golf sandal. A mechanism is provided for securing the golf sandal to the golf shoe.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS The objects and features of the invention may be understood with reference to the following detailed description of an illustrative embodiment of the invention, taken together with the accompanying drawings in which:

FIG. 1 illustrates a side cutaway view of a golf sandal in combination with a golf shoe; and

FIG. 2 illustrates a top planar view of the golf sandal.

The golf sandal 10 broadly consist of a composite of a planar lower flexible hard rubber sole 17 and an upper planar soft rubber sole 18 formed into a shape conforming to the lower section 13 of the golf shoe 1], wherein the composite has a forward sole section 19, a shank portion 20, and a rearward heel portion 21. The upper 18 and lower 17 soles are joined together by adhesive means, heat seal means or any other conventional used means. The outer peripherial sidewalls 21- of the golf s'a ndalj1l .is formed of flexible hard rubber as an integralextension Ofrthfi lower sole 1=7.=The=forwafdedge-22of the-sandall1 extends forwardly'of the forward fedge 23 of ther'gol fshoe 11, and the rear edge 24 of the sandal l0 exterlds rea-r-wardly of therar edge 2"5of the heel portion 14' .of 'the golfshoe 11. The top s urface 26 ofith'e upper sole 18 hasa-pl'urality ofreces sed openings 27 therein, wherein-thefispike members 12 insert into the openings 27 as the upper sole 18 of the sandal engages frictionally to the sole section 13 of the golf shoe 11. The top surface 26 of the upper sole 18 has a non-skid coating deposit thereon, wherein the non-skid coating frictionally engages the sole section 13 of the golf shoe 11 so as to prevent slippage of the golf sandal 10 on the golf shoe 11. A first strap assembly 28 consists of two strap members 29, wherein each strap member 29 is afflxed to the peripheral sidewall 21 on each side of the forward sole section 19 of the sandal 10. The free ends 30 of each strap member 29 have first Velcro tab elements 31 allowing the free ends 30 of the strap members 29 to be joined together on the upper toe section 37 of the golf shoe 11. A second strap assembly 32 consists of two strap elements 33, wherein each strap element 33 is afflxed to the peripheral sidewall 21 on each side of the shank portion 20 of the sandal 10.
