Description

 DESCRIPTION

Quick release shoe

TECHNICAL AREA

The present invention relates to a shoe, in particular a low shoe, with a sole and an upper, the upper having an opening for a human foot. Such shoes are manufactured both as a one-off production by hand and as mass-produced items in very large numbers. On the one hand, they should have good running quality with high wear resistance and at the same time have a good external appearance and, on the other hand, they should be easy to put on and take off.

STATE OF THE ART

The opening through which the human foot must be passed when putting on the shoe is in most cases very narrow. This is necessary to ensure a good fit when the shoe is on and to protect the foot from the weather. In order to facilitate the putting on and taking off process, in many known shoes there is a slot at the opening. Thus can be increased when tightening ^ e hole to be subsequently sealed at einge¬ setztem foot, for example by means of hooks and eyes ge by convicted laces again. Velcro fasteners or zippers are also used as the closure units. In any case, the person who wants to put on or take off the shoe has to bend down and open or close the closure manually.

Furthermore, so-called slippers are known which do not have such a closure device. With these shoes, the human foot is forced through the opening. This can be done either with the help of the hands or by using a so-called shoehorn. Here too, the tightening process is accompanied by manual work. The stooping associated with the putting on or taking off of the shoe with subsequent manual activity frequently causes difficulties primarily for older people with a strained health condition. In particular when the latter loafers are put on, the durability of the shoes suffers if they are put on without a shoehorn, since damage to the heel area of the shoe then occurs primarily over time.

PRESENTATION OF THE INVENTION

The invention is based on the object of specifying a shoe of the type mentioned at the outset which enables a quick and problem-free putting on and taking off and at the same time ensures the demands placed on the running quality and durability.

The shoe according to the invention is given by the features of claim 1. Advantageous refinements and developments of the invention are the subject of the dependent claims.

The shoe according to the invention is accordingly characterized in that there is at least one heel molded part in the heel region of the shoe, which is rotatably mounted on the shoe, so that the opening when the shoe is put on or taken off can be enlarged. This makes it possible to put on or take off the shoes in a simple manner without using hands or other aids. The rotatability of the heel molding ensures an enlargement of the opening, so that the foot can be slipped in or pulled out without problems. In a preferred embodiment of the shoe according to the invention, the heel molding can be detachably attached to the shoe. The heel molding can be automatically attached to the shoe when the foot is inserted. This feature ensures that the shoe according to the invention has a good fit quality when put on.

A structurally simple embodiment is characterized in that the molded heel part has a latching device which detachably snaps into a recess in the shoe. The locking device can be integrally connected to the heel molding.

A preferred further development of the shoe according to the invention is characterized in that the molded heel part has a seat-like shape with right and left side walls adapted to the heel of the foot, a rear wall and a partial sole area, whereby particularly good running quality can be guaranteed.

An embodiment variant which manages with particularly simple technical means is characterized in that the latching device is designed as a latching lug which is arranged on the underside of the partial sole area of the molded heel part and which releasably engages with an anchoring device present in the heel sole area of the shoe is feasible. It has proven to be advantageous to design the anchoring device as a rigid, strip-like anchoring element with a recess that can be displaced against the action of a spring unit. By sliding the anchoring element, the heel molding is released and can be folded away to the rear.

With the shoe according to the invention, a quick and easy putting on and taking off is possible. All that is required to pull out is the anchoring element with the toe of each to exert a short pressure on the other foot, as a result of which it shifts and the locking connection between the heel molded part and the sole area is released. The foot can then be easily pulled out through the opening which is enlarged as a result of the rotational movement of the heel molding. For tightening, the foot is only inserted through the opening which has already been enlarged by the folded-over heel molding, the heel molding automatically and releasably latching into its end position when the foot is inserted.

Further embodiments and advantages of the invention result from the features further specified in the claims and from the exemplary embodiment specified below. The features of the claims can be combined with one another in any way insofar as they are not obviously mutually exclusive.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWING

The invention and an advantageous embodiment are described and explained in more detail below with reference to the exemplary embodiment shown in the drawing. The features to be gathered from the description of the drawing can be used individually or in combination in any combination. Show it:

1 side view and partial section through a shoe according to the invention with a rotatable heel part,

Fig. 2 top view of the shoe of FIG. 1 in the heel area and

3 heel rear view of the shoe according to FIG. 1. WAYS OF CARRYING OUT THE INVENTION

A shoe 10 with a sole 12 and an upper part 14 adjoining the sole 12 and adapted to the shape of the human foot has an opening 16 for inserting a human foot. The sole 12 has on its underside a running layer 18, an intermediate layer 20 arranged on the running layer 18 and an inner layer 22 arranged on the intermediate layer 20.

In the heel area of the sole 12 there is a first recess 24 which has a thickness corresponding to the inner layer and the half intermediate layer 20. The first recess 24 is followed by a second recess 26 and a third recess 28 towards the front of the shoe. The second recess 26 begins on the inside of the running layer 18 and has a thickness that corresponds approximately to half the thickness of the intermediate layer 20. The third recess 28 adjoins the second recess 26, but is arranged upwards on the underside of the inner layer. A helical compression spring 30 is located in this third recess 28.

The arrangement of the three recesses 24, 26, 30 results in a downward-pointing projection 32 of the intermediate layer 20 which adjoins the underside of the inner layer 22. This projection 32 is engaged behind by a rod-shaped anchoring member 34. For this purpose, the anchoring member 34 has a front bend 36. The spring 30 acts on this front bend 36, so that the bend 36 is pressed against the projection 32.

In the rear area, the anchoring member 34 penetrates the intermediate layer 20 drawn upwards and also has an upward-pointing rear bend 38 at its end. In the area of the first recess 24, in the anchoring member 34 present a substantially rectangular opening 40. By pressing on the rear bend in the direction of arrow A, the anchoring member 34 can be shifted somewhat forward in the direction A.

In the heel area of the shoe 10, a rotatably arranged heel molding 42 with side walls 44, a rear wall 46 and a sole area 48 is arranged. The sole area 48 has an area corresponding to the inner layer 22 and an area half the thickness corresponding to the intermediate layer 20 as the intermediate layer 20, the dimensions of the sole area 48 being selected such that it fits into the first recess 24. On the underside of the sole area 48, a locking element 50 is fastened with a locking lug 52 by means of two screws 54.

The intermediate layer 20 of the sole 12 has, in the rear heel region, two shoulders 56 which are spaced apart in the transverse direction and between which the rear region of the anchoring member 34 is arranged and between which a projection 58 present on the rear wall 46 is mounted. Both the shoulders 56 and the projection 58 have a bore 60 lying on a line, a rod-shaped member 62 being inserted through the bore 60, so that the heel molding 42 is rotatable on the shoe about an axis of rotation D formed by the rod-shaped member 10 is stored.

1 shows the shoe 10 according to the invention with the heel molded part 42 in the open state. By inserting the human foot through the opening 16, the heel molding 42 is now rotated downward about the axis of rotation D. The locking lug 52 is pressed through the opening 40 of the anchoring member 34 and latches on the underside of the anchoring element 3. In this state, the heel molded part 42 forms a unit with the shoe 10, which ensures a good fit with high running quality. accomplishes.

To remove the shoe, the rear end 38 of the anchoring member 34 is pressed in direction A, which can be done, for example, by means of the toe of the other foot, as a result of which the anchoring member 34 moves somewhat forward. The result of this is that the detent 52 of the detent member 50 becomes free and the heel molding 42 can thereby be folded back about the axis of rotation D, which makes it very easy to remove the shoe.

The embodiment shown is only one of the many variants for forming a shoe according to the invention with a rotatably mounted heel molding. In addition to the illustrated shape of the heel molding, a variety of bearing constructions are also possible.
