HEEL-SUPPORT.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented May 31, 1910.

Application led September 25, 1909. Serial No. 519,529.

To all whom t may concern: I Be it known that I, JOHN C. MooREFmLD, citizen of the United States, residing at Houston, in the county of Harris and State of rIexas, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Heel-Supports, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to new and useful improvements in heel supports.

The object of my invention is to provide a heel support which will prevent a shoe from sagging over and overlapping the heel commonly called run over.

Another object of my invention is to provide a heel support which can be attached to any shoe and one which will stay in position until it is desired to remove the same.

Still another object of my invention is to provide a device of the character described which will not work loose or cause the shoe to wear out at the point of attachment.

A further object of my invention is to provide a device of the character described which will be simple, strong, durable, eiiicient and comparatively inexpensive to construct.

With these and other objects in View my invention has relation to certain novel features of construction and operation, an eX- ample of which is described in the following specification and illustrated in the accompanying drawings, wherein:

Figure 1 is a side elevation of a shoe showing my ,invention in position. Fig. 2 is a sectional view taken on the line a-a of Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is a plan view of my heel support showing the shape of the aperture in laterally extending lug. Fig. 4 is an elevation of the inner side of my device.

In the drawing the numeral 1 designates a plate which is arranged to it snugly against the side of the shoe and extends over the side of the heel.

The plate 1 carries a laterally extending lug 2 near its center which is adapted to be forced between the heel and the counter of a sho-e in such a manner as to assist in holding the plate in position.

A nail 3 can be driven into the heel 4 through an aperture 5 in the lug 2 to prevent a lateral movement of the plate. Particular attention is called to this feature as a plate will invariably work loose if it is not fastened at this point. This aperture is so shaped that the nail can be inserted without much trouble. The plate l is also held by a screw 6 at a point near its lower eX- tremity which engages with the heel 4. An opening 7 in the top of the plate 1 makes the device lighter and tends to make it conform with the shape of the shoe more readily.

It is obvious that my devices may be suitably stained or enameled to match either black or colored shoes and that the plate 1 may be slightly bent -to t either French or military heels.

What I claim is:

In a heel support comprising7 an elongated plate having an aperture at its upper end adapted to engage over the counter of a shoe, a screw passing through the plate near its other end and engaged with the heel of the shoe, a wedge shaped lug arranged on the plate intermediate its ends adapted to be driven between the counter and the heel of the shoe and to rest on top of the heel having a slot therein, and a nail passing through the slot in the lug to engage with the heel.

In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.

JOHN C. MOOREFIELD.
