HEEL FOR BOOTS OR SHOES.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 652,887, dated J' uly 3, 1900. Application led July 1,1897. Serial No. 643,079. (No-model.)

To all whom t may concern.-

Be it known that I, GEORGE F. BUTTER- FIELD, of Stoneham, in the county of Middlesex and State of Massachusetts, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Heels for Boots or Shoes, of which the following, taken in connection with the accompanying drawings, is a specilication.

The object of this invention is to provide' against the bottom of the boss or heel-formy fixed to the shoe, and through this partition screws or other fastenings pass upwardly tosecure the shell to the bossi A yielding tread or cushion, preferably of vulcanized rubber, is held in the lower chamber of the shell by any suitable means, such as vulcanizing it in position; but I prefer to secure it detachably by one or more screws entering the horizontalv partition, so that it may be removed,when desired, so as to bring the edges of theshell toA the ground, whereby slipping on ice in lwinter is prevented. The lower edge of the shell may be toothed or roughened to make it more effective for this purpose. The rubber cushion when in use projects considerably below the shell, and while transversely horizontal its bottom is preferably quite convex from front to rear.

The upper chamber of the shell may be omitted, together withl the wooden or other boss or heel-form on the shoe, and the horizontal portion secured direct to the heel portion of the shoeby staples, nails, or rivets extending upwardly through the sole and insole and clenched inside the shoe. For mens shoes, where the heel is relatively low, this form is especially desirable.

In .the drawings, Figure 1 is a side View of one of my improved heels. Fig. 2 is a vertical longitudinal section through the parts, shown detached. Fig. 3 is a like section through the completed heel.l Fig. t is an elevation of the shell without the cushion. Fig. 5 is a modification.

A represent-s the outer shell, and B the partition or horizontal portion, through which pass the fastenings which secure the shell to the shoe. A In Figs. 2 and 3 these fastenings are shown as screws O, extending upwardly into the boss or heel-form D, which is fixed to the heel portion of the sole or shoe E.

In Fig. 5 the upper walls of the shell are omitted or reduced and the part B becomes a concave top of the shell, fitting beneath the heel portion of the shoe, and the fastenings are clenching-staples which hold the shell i'rmly, its upper edges inclosing the rear end of thesole. Y

F is a yielding cushion, preferably of vulcanized rubber, tted into the lower chamber of the hollow shell A. G is a screw countersunk in the cushion F and extending up and threaded to engage in a thickened portion of the part B of the shell. Any desired number of such screws may be used, and when the cushion is not to be removable it may be permanently cemented or vulcanized in place. The bottom is shown convex in its longitudinal section, with the greater swell at the rear.

I claim as my invention- `A boot or shoehaving secured to its heel portion a heel-shaped metallic shell, open at bottoml and roughened along its lower margin, in combination with a yielding cushion fitting within and protruding below said shell and provided with detachable fastenings permitting its removal, substantially as set forth. In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification, in the presence of two subscribing witnesses, on this 29th day of June, A. D. 1897.

GEORGE F. BUTTERFIELD.
