Abstract

An outer sole, in particular for hiking shoes or climbing boots, has two pads (7, 8) at least partially filled with a fluid medium and interconnected by a channel (9). The first pad (7) is arranged in the area of the heel (11) and the other pad (8) is arranged in the front area of the outer sole. The pads (7, 8) form together with the interconnecting channel (9) a single, flexible and in itself closed component that fits in a cavity (5) of matching dimensions in the outer sole. The length of the interconnecting channel (9) is set so that the second pad (8) arranged in the front area of the outer sole is located in the front area of the foot or in the area (13) of the ball of the foot.

Description

Outsole, in particular for a hiking or climbing boots

The invention relates to an outsole, in particular for a hiking or climbing boot, at least partially filled with two with a fluid medium and by a channel connected pads, one of which is arranged one in the front region of the running sole in the heel area and the other.

Such a sole structure is known from DE-A-28 00 359 and EP-B-0 062 622. Both known Konstruk¬ functions have in common that the front pad with the Fußgewöl¬ be cooperates, that is in the midfoot region of the outsole. This is to ensure that the arch is always adequately supported during rolling of the foot. According to EP-B-0062622, the front pad to serve as a "dynamic supporting bulge beneath the front arch of the foot" accordingly. The construction according to DE-A-28 00 359 executed in a similar way. Accordingly, it pursues the same purpose as the upholstery construction according to EP-B-0 062 622. The serve in each case arranged in the heel pad vor¬ namely for shock absorption in this respect the sensitive heel.

Finally, the known constructions have in common that the cushion-cavities are formed in the outsole itself such that the outsole fluid tight voids, whose preparation is quite obviously extremely expensive. With conventional outsoles-Sgritzgießmaschinen such a running surface can not be established. Also, care must be taken that the outsole material is permanently fluid-tight. Finally, measures to fill the aforementioned voids must be taken to form the desired cushion. For the practice known soles constructions are therefore not suitable.

To the construction according to DE-A-28 00 359 is also er¬ imagines that the connecting channel between the two pads is formed so that it is compressed at constant load of the footbed (standing up) and then the connection between the two cushions interrupts. Shifting the burden (while walking) in front of the metatarsal area, the lock is released. The abovementioned lock the connecting channel an artificial barrier is in the midfoot area of ​​the outsole constructed on the foot should roll when walking. In this way, walking is imitating a Sand¬ ground.

The situation is similar in the other also in the construc- tion according to FR-A-2 413 838. Here, too, serves the Ver¬ connection channel between the front and rear cushion at the same time as the closing valve. In addition, the Konstruk¬ tion is characterized by FR-A-2,413,893 by the fact that the front and rear cushion virtually extend with the result over the entire Sohlenflä- before that the user receives when standing on such an outsole feel to stand on a 1 extremely wobbly surface. trolled accordingly unkon¬ the damping and leadership is the letztge¬ called outsole.

5 The present invention is, starting from the state of the tech ö nik the object of developing an outsole of the initially genann¬ th kind such that, when compared to the prior art a simplified design and manufacture a kon¬ trolled shock absorption or damping, and thus increased protection of 10 feet, knees and back of the user is obtained.

This object is achieved by the characterizing features of Pa¬ tentanspruches. 1

5 in that the pads together with the connecting channel are formed as self-contained and uniformly flexible member which is fittable into a correspondingly dimensioned cavity of the sole!, Both the manufacture and mounting of the outsole according to the invention in comparison to the

20 state of the art considerably easier. The damping device according to the invention is produced outside of the outsole. The corresponding recess within the outsole for Auf¬ exception of the aforementioned damping device can be produced either during the injection molding of the outsole or subsequently by contrasting chip 5 processing.

According to the proposal according to claim 3 ngskeils Q is the cavity for the pad together with the connecting channel is formed within a geson¬ derten, below the insole arranged damping. For this purpose, the damping wedge is provided with a passage whose outline as the outline vorzugs¬ - the filled with a fluid medium damping ngs component in

Plan view corresponds to. Preferably, the damping wedge is made of., PU foam, a cork-rubber blend or the like. damping

35 i r.aterial prepared. Accordingly, pressure-elastic is the

Behavior of the damping wedge. By this compressive elasticity and the impact on the inventive fluid poster is ensured when walking. The filling of the damping component of the invention außer¬ half of the outsole is unproblematic. Also does not have to be taken to ensure that the recess in the outsole to Auf¬ acquisition of the damping component of the invention is formed fluid-tight aus¬. This applies particularly to arrangement of the Dämp¬ prüfungsgesellschaft component within said damper wedge when this is made of foam material, which does not ensure a permanent fluid-tightness.

Furthermore, the construction according to the invention is characterized in that located in the front area of ​​the outsole an¬ parent cushion about the forefoot area, particularly in the Fu߬ ball region of the outsole. As a result, when Abrol¬ len of the foot forward over the ball of fluid from the upstream displaces the cushion via the connecting passage to the rear cushion, so that there se during the subsequent occurrence of the Fer¬ is present on the ground sufficient damping fluid, which then in the other the course of the walking or rolling movement of the

Foot is displaced back to the front in the front cushion. The connection channel is always open during the rolling of the foot. With the above fluid flow from vor¬ ne backwards and vice versa impact energy is effectively destroyed with the consequence of increased protection of foot, knee, pelvis and back of the user.

Characterized in that the aforesaid damping element is preferably arranged below the relatively stiff insole, the user of a shoe with the sole according to the invention feels Lauf¬ not fluid displacement and fluid flow between the front and rear cushion. The compression or expansion of the cushion pad via the elasticity of the pad receiving outsole material and / or on the Unter¬ side of the outsole. To this extent, the front cushion of the outsole according to the invention no dynamic supporting bulge correspondingly EP-B-0062622. Also, in the construction according erfindungs¬ no artificial threshold by Unter¬ refraction of the connecting channel between the front and rear cushion during foot roll generated according to the DE-A-28 00 359 and FR-A-2413893. The damping device according to the invention is a ge in itself connected, independent element which operates unterbrechungs¬ free. Also, the susceptibility to interference is minimal due to the fact that the damping component is produced as a verifiable geson¬ engineered element outside of the outsole and reliability.

Preferably, the pads together with the connecting channel in the manner of a bag, especially a flat bag formed with the walls of the edges welded to one another Kunststoff¬ films are made. This creates a flexible and easy-fittable into the associated outsoles recess part.

In a specific embodiment, the one wall is pulled low ¬ to form the two pads and the connecting channel, while the other wall is formed by a flat cover sheet.

The aforementioned film structures can also be easily filled, wherein the filling opening after the filling are welded by means of a conventional welding apparatus is.

Advantageously, serving as fluid medium a liquid, especially gel-like liquid. By the viscosity of the selected fluid, the damping rate of the inventive outsole can be adjusted well. The viscosity of the damping fluid is also dependent from the purpose of the outsole Verwendungs¬ either a hiking boot or a ski boot or a jogging or tennis shoe.

To increase the degree of damping the filling liquid nor solid particles, in particular cork or plastic may include particles. In conjunction with a viewing window to the connecting channel between the two pads vor¬ the solid particles above are at the same time to visualize the flow of fluid between the two pads according to the load thereof. Then, the solid particles are preferred wise with contrasting colored. If the filling liquid such. As blue, so white plastic particles are suitable connection channel as Solid Fuel Particles for visualization of the fluid flow in Ver¬.

The aforementioned viewing window can be made according to Chen Ansprü¬ 11 may be arranged to T3, with the configuration according to An¬ demanding 14 makes it possible to observe the fluid flow between the bei¬ the cushions when walking, and that if a different one according to the invention with a outsole comparable provided shoe wearing. In addition, can be in this Ausfüh¬ the fluid flow between the two cushions approximate shape very nicely on the table or the like. Demonstrate.

According to claim 15 which faces the cushion and the channel conjunction comprehensive component in plan view about the Um¬ plan view of a dumbbell or a bone on. In side view, the inventive component is in the form of a tapered from the heel region to the forefoot toward the wedge. Die¬ se shape corresponds to the cross section of a tread in the longitudinal direction. It corresponds above all to the longitudinal section of the damping wedge preferably used between the insole and the lower part of the outsole.

The two pads are formed approximately the same volume. In this embodiment, the forefoot lying Pol¬ art in comparison with the arranged in the heel cushion both flat as well as in top view wider and / or longer formed. This is due to the aforementioned wedge shape of the component in the shoe longitudinal direction.

According to claim 17 can be associated with the connecting channel between the two pads, a user from the outside, ie through the Be¬ adjustable fluid choke, z. B. screw in the form of a force acting on the connecting channel throttling, which is either laterally or screwed from beneath into the outsole. In this way, one specially-individual adjustment of the damping ngsgrades possible.

To the described displacement of the filling medium from a cushion to allow reverse to the other pad and sufficient volume for receiving the displaced fluid must be the vorhan¬. This is particularly true if the wall of the filled medium component is not stretchable. In this case, the member channel formed by the two pads and their Verbindungs¬ filled only partly, in particular approximately 2/3 of its maximum volume. The filling of the Bau¬ partly with liquid can gen erfol¬ exclusion of air thereby. Preferably, however, it is carried out with the inclusion of a predetermined air or inert gas, in particular nitrogen volume that is required, compressible, so that comparison is provided as needed drängungsvolumen ,

In addition, the filling of the device may comprise a resiliently nach¬ giebigen sponge, preferably open-pored sponge. With such a sponge, the damping can also adjust degree.

The fill fluid preferably comprises still solid particles, in particular cork or plastic particles 18, can be additionally increased by the attenuation degree of the component. 6

With the arrangement of at least one view window in the region of the connecting channel 9, the aforesaid solid particles are used at the same time to visualize the flow of fluid between the two pads 7 and 8 while walking with a shoe with the outsole be¬ signed. The fluid flow when walking within the damping member 6 is indicated 5 and 6 in Figs.. Upon the occurrence of the heel (Fig. 5) the heel pad 7 is charged (part 19). Accordingly, damping fluid is displaced from the heel pad 7, by the conjunction channel 9 into the front and forefoot pad 8 in. The corresponding fluid flow is indicated in Fig. 5 with the multiple arrows 20th In this way, the impact load of the heel is absorbed or damped. Then the rolling of the foot over the forefoot takes place accordingly entspre¬ Fig. 6. Accordingly, during rolling of the foot over the forefoot area, the front or forefoot pad 8 be¬ loaded (arrow 21). The heel pad 7 is relieved. The damping fluid within the component 6 can accordingly from

front 10 and forefoot pad 8 again flow back into the heel pad 7 corresponding to the multiple arrows 22 in Figure 6. By this liquid displacement of the forefoot is relieved on the one hand. on the other hand the heel pad 7 is filled again, so that this for a new shock absorption upon impact - are prepared on the floor ~ heel.

In a preferred embodiment, the diameter of the heel pad 7 is between about 40 to 50 mm, in particular about 45 mm. The forefoot cushion 8 is preferably formed slightly broad ter 20 and longer than the heel pad. 7 It is ever nevertheless built flatter than the heel pad 7 corresponding to the lower height of the sole in the forefoot area. as Vorzugs¬ the two pads are formed, however, 7 and 8 equal volume aus¬ so that the almost complete emptying of a

25 cushion the almost complete filling of the other Pol¬ sters result has.

The connecting channel between the two pads 7 and 8 preferably has a mean diameter of about 11 to 30 20 mm, in particular about 15 to 17 mm. The length of the method connection channel 9 is dependent on the respective size.

As already stated above, at least the Verbindungska¬ nal 9 should be assigned to a viewing window. This is a 5 in the simplest embodiment, on the underside of

Outsole. For this purpose, a transparent plastic part is set ein¬ in the rubber sole 1 in the region of the connecting channel. 9 In Fig. 7 a corresponding viewing window by the reference numeral 23 is indicated.

In the embodiment of Fig. 7, two further window 24 and 25 are embedded in the rubber sole 1, wherein the viewing window 24 the forefoot cushioning the viewing window 8 and 25 associated with the heel pad 7. Also this window are inserts made of transparent plastic.

Figs. 8 to 10 show different structures of the vision panel window surfaces. In the embodiment of FIG. 8, the surface of the viewing window has waffle structure. In the leadership Aus¬ embodiment shown in FIG. 9, the surface of the viewing window is characterized by a knob structure. In the Ausführungs¬ embodiment shown in FIG. 10, the surface of the viewing window 23, 24 and / or 25 spikes or sharp-edged elevations. The viewing windows 23, 24 and / or 25 may also comprise a magnifying lens, nen to better detect the flow of fluid between the two pads 7 and 8 to kön¬ preferably each.
