BURlAL-SHOE.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 537,627, dated April 16, 1895. Application filed January 5 1895- Serial No. 533 896. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern.-

Be it known that we, JOSEPH G. BIXBY and FRANK S. PITNER, of Decatur, in the county of Macon and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Burial- Shoes, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to longitudinally extensible burial shoes. It is exemplified in the structure hereinafter described and itis defined in the appended claims.

In the drawings forming part of this specification Figure 1 is a perspective representation of a shoe embodying our invention. Fig. 2 is a longitudinal vertical section of the same. Fig. 3 is a plan of the sole, the heel and the elastic connection between the sole and heel.

The sole, as a whole is indicated at 1, the outer sole at 2 and the inner sole at 3. The elastic connection between the heel and sole is shown at 4:. The heel 5 is recessed, as shown at 10 in Fig. 3, and the rear end of the sole is shaped to fit the recess and move lengthwise therein. The quarter 8 is secured to the heel, the vamp 7 is secured to the sole and the two do not overlap. The space between the vamp and the quarter is filled by the flaps 9, which are extensible and are secured to the vamp and to the quarter, by stitching or otherwise,in a manner to make the upper practically continuous. In this instance the flaps are held normally puckered by means of an elastic cord run through each of them, the intention being to combine ornamentation with utility, but the construction is not essential so long as the flaps are extensible and connect the quarter with the vamp.

The vamp is preferably open part way down in front and provided with elastic laces, and it is prepared for placing on the foot of the corpse by drawing the sole and vamp away from the heel and the quarter, thereby stretching the elastic connections 4. and lengthening the flaps. After the shoe is in place the automatic action of the stretched elastic band will contract the shoe to closely fit the foot.

Having thus described our invention, we I claim as new anddesire to secure by Letters Patent- 1. A shoe having a longitudinal recess in, or on, the upper surface of the heel, a sole the rear end of which is longitudinally slidable in the recess, a quarter secured to the heel, a vamp secured to the sole, and extensible flaps connecting the vamp with the quarter, substantially as set forth.

2. A shoe having a longitudinal guide recess in, or on, the upper surface of the heel, a sole longitudinally slidable in the recess, a quarter secured to the heel, a vamp secured to the sole, and an elastic connection between the heel and the sole tending to hold the sole against longitudinal extension, substantially as set forth.

3. A shoe having a longitudinal guide recess in, or on, the upper surface of the heel, a sole longitudinally slidable in the recess, a quarter secured to the heel, a vamp secured to the sole, an elastic connection between the heel and the sole tending to hold the sole against longitudinal extension, and flaps connecting the vamp with the quarter, substantially as set forth.

In testimony whereof we sign our names in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.

JOSEPH G. BIXBY.
