Description

Shoe, in particular sports shoe

The invention relates to a shoe, especially a sports shoe, a damping element is arranged with a shoe upper and a sole, wherein above or on the sole, wherein the damping member is formed of a number of webs which form cavities extending horizontally and transversely to the longitudinal direction of the shoe extend.

A sports shoe of this type is known for example from DE 34 40 206 C2. Here, the sole of the shoe is provided with a damping element which has a number of cavities, which prevail at noncompliant use, ie, when the boot rests on the ground, the sole transversely to the longitudinal direction of the shoe. In this way, the shoe or its sole receives a desired damping characteristic.

It has become known with which it is possible to influence the spring and damping characteristics of a shoe, other solutions. In WO 01/17384 A2 a sole for a shoe is described in which a number of ribs are positioned in the rearfoot between a carrier or inner part and an outsole, having a curved shape. This ensures that when loading of the sole is carried out, bending of the fins with appearance forces, said rib assumes an almost semi-ellipsoidal shape. Furthermore, 20 2005 007 867 Ul, DE discloses a shoe of the type mentioned, in which the damping element is formed by two mutually spaced and mutually parallel plates, namely a top plate and a bottom plate, wherein between the two plates extending webs, which form said cavities. Such a solution is sketched in Fig. 1; there is shown the rear part of a shoe in a side view. The damping element 3, integrated into the sole 2 has a cover plate 15 and a - here at the same time acting as outsole - bottom plate 16 with ribs 4 extending between the two plates and form cavities. 5

In FIG. 2, the shoe shown in Fig. 1 upon impact with the heel on the ground is outlined. The pedal force F F calls as a reaction force out the ground force F B, both of which forces are directed substantially in the direction of the vertical V. The pedal force F F - present substantially transmitted through the heel of the wearer of the shoe - acts as outlined at the site, while the ground force F B is introduced into the sole at the rear end of the shoe. Characterized both forces are necessarily - as viewed in the direction of the horizontal line H - a certain distance a from each other.

As can be seen immediately from Fig. 2, therefore, occur upon impact of the shoe on the ground in the manner outlined shear forces Fs, which move the base and the cover plate relative to each other in the longitudinal direction of the shoe and so deform the structure of the damping element 3, as it is indicated in Fig. 2. The above rectangular in the side view of cavities 5 (s. Fig. 1) are deformed and now have a diamond-shaped contour, which can have a detrimental effect on the spring and damping characteristics of the shoe. It is disadvantageous in the mentioned prior art designs of soles and their damping elements so that the influence is possible on both the damping and spring characteristics as well as on the pronation and supination when the shoe on the floor only limited or restricted. It is desirable to have an impact parameter with which this is possible in an improved manner.

The invention is therefore based on the object, a shoe, in particular a sports shoe, which retrain the aforementioned type such that in a better way on the spring and damping properties of the shoe during the landing of the heel on the ground and to the pronation and supination of the shoe can be influenced. Thus, it is intended to propose a structural embodiment of a shoe of the type mentioned, with which the deformation of the damping element and the tilting of the shoe to the shoe longitudinal axis when the shoe can be influenced on the floor.

The solution of this object according to the invention is characterized in that the shoe has a heel cup Hinterfuß- or to which at least some of the webs directly adjacent.

As will later be seen in detail (s. Fig. 3) so that the disadvantageous deformation of the damping element when the shoe on the ground is largely avoided, so that on the one hand good spring and damping characteristics of the damping element to ensure it on the other hand to any negative deformation of the member is coming.

Preferably, it is provided that the damping element up to the rear end of the shoe and around the heel extends upwardly. Thereafter, the damping element, that is follows the course of the heel shell at least partially which enhances the desired effect. Thus, in order to achieve certain spring and damping characteristic in the rearmost or rear area of ​​the shoe, the damping element may extend in the heel area up to a height of 40% to 75% of total shoe height. while the last ridge of the damping element is regarded as the end of the damping element.

The damping member may comprise a number of plane, have extensively trained and interconnected webs, it is advantageously provided that at least a portion of the cavities of the shoe side of view, a polygonal, in particular quadrangular, pentagonal or hexagonal, have limitation. Alternatively or additionally it is also possible that the damping element has a plurality of curved, flat and formed of interconnected webs. With the above formation of the webs - flat and curved - all conceivable cases are detected, also cavities whose boundary surfaces are trough-shaped, tube-shaped or oval.

can an outer sole at the bottom of the damping element, preferably arranged with a constant thickness. The outsole may extend over the entire area in which the damping element extends. In addition, can also be provided that the outsole extends over the area of ​​the damping element addition.

A particularly advantageous production method and a compact design of the component are possible if the Hinterfuß- or heel cup, the damping element and / or the outsole are designed as a one-piece injection molded part.

The power transmission from the foot to the ground and vice versa is further optimized when it is provided according to a development that at least some of the webs as viewed from the side of the shoe are perpendicular to the Hinterfuß- or heel shell and / or on the outsole.

The Hinterfuß- or heel cup is preferably configured as a convex structure is formed that is, the surface of the heel cup Hinterfuß- or in any case curved in the heel area in two mutually perpendicular and lying in the surface plane directions.

The influencing of the pronation and Supinationsverhaltens of the shoe can be positively influenced, if it is provided that at least one incision is introduced in at least a portion of the damping element which divides the damping element in at least two, preferably arranged symmetrically to the center plane of the shoe, part elements.

The incision preferably has - viewed in the longitudinal direction of the shoe - a U-shaped or V-shaped configuration. The flanks of the V-shaped cut close to the vertical preferably an angle between 10 ° and 60 °, preferably between 15 ° and 45 °, a.

The lateral outer boundary surfaces of the partial elements extend with advantage at least sectionally straight, wherein the boundary surfaces with the vertical, preferably between 15 ° and 45 °, enclose an angle between 0 ° and 60 °. The angle of the flanks of the V-shaped cut to the vertical, and the angle of the boundary surfaces to the vertical can thereby be equal in size. but it can also be provided, alternatively, that the two said angles are different. The incision can be up to or to extend close to the Hinterfuß- or heel cup.

The incision can be seen in the longitudinal direction of the shoe only in the rearfoot of the shoe. It can - as seen in the longitudinal direction of the shoe - extend over a length between 5% and 45%, preferably between 15% and 35% of the length of the shoe. The lower values ​​of the extent of the incision apply in particular for the case that a plurality of incisions in the longitudinal direction of the shoe are consecutive.

The maximum width of the recess may be in the range of the footprint of the shoe on the ground between 10% and 50%, especially between 20% and 40% of the width of the shoe. The lower values ​​of the extent of the incision apply in particular for the case that two or more notches in the longitudinal direction of the shoe are arranged side by side.

The optionally disposed at the bottom of the damping element (. Eg firmly glued) outsole is - as the damping element - partially interrupted in the case of the presence of a cut across the width of the shoe.

The parts of the sole and, in particular, the damping element preferably consist of plastic, in particular of thermoplastic material. It is especially preferred thought of polyethylene, polypropylene, polybutane, polyamide, polyurethane or a mixture of at least two of these plastics. The plastic can be translucent or transparent. Also, the outsole may be made of plastic, preferably of polyethylene, polypropylene, polybutane, polyamide, polyurethane or a mixture of at least two of these plastics, or of rubber.

The material of the individual components of the damping element, as well as their geometrical dimensions can be professionally selected to define the spring and / or damping properties of the damping element.

The inventive design of the shoe in an improved support against forces or moments, which shear the shoe when striking the ground in the direction of the longitudinal axis of the shoe and / or want to rotate around the shoe longitudinal axis. This means both the spring and damping properties of the shoe when placed on the floor and the pronation and supination of the shoe can be influenced. This is also possible with relatively simple means, so that the influence can be done inexpensively.

The proposed measures, it is also possible to influence the cushioning and damping of the sole or the damping element influence. The spring stiffness than absolute size can be adjusted via the thickness of the webs of the damping element and / or on the size of the individual cavities.

The manufacture of the proposed damping element and the entire shoe is possible to easily and cost-effectively, for which known methods are used. In the drawing embodiments of the invention are shown. Show it:

FIG. 8a through FIG. 8d different embodiments of the damping element, wherein

Cutouts of the damping element are shown in the side view. In FIG. 4, an embodiment of the invention is to be seen, the shoe partially illustrated therein comprises a shoe upper 1 and sole 2. In the bottom 2 of a damping element 3 is integrated, wherein the damping element 3 is formed of a number of bars 4 which form the cavities 5, which extend horizontally and transversely to the longitudinal direction L of the shoe.

It is essential that the shoe has a Hinterfuß- or heel cup 12 to which at least a part of the lands 4 directly adjacent. Fig. 4 shows that the upper vertically extending webs 4 of the damping element 3 are incident perpendicular to the convex surface of the heel cup 12 to these and - viewed over the width of the shoe - the convex profile of the heel cup 12 follow (see also FIG.. 6). The damping element 3 is - seen in the longitudinal direction L - not just executed, but the profile of the damping member 3 follows the shape of the heel cup 12, ie, in the rear heel area of ​​the damping element to bow upwardly.

The bottom-mounted in the damping element 3 outsole 14 follows accordingly, ie over distances of time occurs between the heel cup 12 and outsole 14, a gap having a substantially constant pitch follows the course of the heel cup and in which the damping element 3 is arranged.

This ensures that there is when the shoe with the heel on the ground to no adverse deformation that would shear the damping element, as is the case in the prior art shown in FIG. 1 and 2. Rather, it is apparent from the illustration according to Fig. 3, is that although the damping element 3 is compressed and thus deformed, however, that a scissors (as shown in Fig. 2) does not take place or in any case only to a minor. This is achieved in that the pedal force F F and the ground force F B are due to the use of the heel cup 12 is substantially in the same plane, d. h it is not - as in Fig. 2 - is a distance in a direction of the horizontal H between the two forces in front, so that the disadvantageous deformation of the damping element 3 (as shown in Figure 2.) is prevented.

To improve the pronation and Supinationsverhaltens the shoe following further action can be taken if necessary:

In Fig. 5, the rear part of an alternatively constructed shoe can be seen. In the sole 2 here is a damping element 3 is integrated consisting of a number of ribs 4, which are constructed as plate members, or as curved walls, which - apart from a more detail discussion incision - extend over the entire width of the shoe. Consisting of the individual webs 4 damping element 3 is again directly above the

Hinterfuß- or heel cup 12 is connected. Below, the outsole 14 is disposed again at the damping element. 3 Next, it is seen that the damping element extends here 3 via the rear foot. 13

As can be seen from the illustration of FIG. 6 and FIG. 7, the damping element 3 does not extend continuously over the entire width of the shoe, but there is a V-shaped notch 6 is provided. The incision 6 is formed by two sidewalls 8 and 9 (see. Fig. 6) defined, which are straight and enclose an angle α to the vertical V. This angle is in the exemplary embodiment at approximately 30 °, but values ​​between 15 ° and 45 ° are particularly suitable. Next, it is seen that the laterally outer boundary surfaces 10 and 11 do not vertically drop of the damping element 3, but also extend at an angle to the vertical V, at least in the lower region of the damping element 3. This angle is indicated by SS. Not necessarily, but preferably, the angles α and ß equal.

It is also possible that more than one recess is incorporated in the sole or in the damping element 3. 6 In this case, can be provided, for example two or more successive in the longitudinal direction L of the shoe following incisions. 6 It is possible, furthermore, that in the longitudinal direction L considered two or more juxtaposed cuts are provided 6, which subdivide the damping element 3 over the width of the shoe into several partial elements.

This results in a configuration with which the damping element into two sub-elements 3 3 'and 3 "is divided, which in any case extend in the lower region of the damping element 3 side and widening downwards away from each other, wherein both partial elements 3', 3" preferred are formed but not necessarily, symmetrical to the center plane 7 of the shoe. By asymmetries of the partial elements 3 ', 3 "can be made to the pronation and supination of the shoe specifically influence.

From Fig. 7 shows how large the extent of the incision can be selected. 6 The length L E of the notch 6 is in the exemplary embodiment about 25% to 30% of the total length L of the shoe 8, wherein values of between 15% and 35% are preferred. During the incision 6 (s. Fig. 6) extends close to the Hinterfuß- or heel cup 12 and forms the tip of the "V", has the notch 6 in the area of the outer sole 14 at its maximum width B e, which is preferably between 20 % and 40% of the width B of the shoe 5 is. 8a to 8d show different embodiments of the damping element 3, as regards the shaping of the webs 4.

In Fig. 8a, a honeycomb-shaped body is realized, that is here the individual webs form 4 hexagonal or square elements, which are composed to the structure of the damping element 3. Referring to FIG. 8b the ridges 4 are arranged so that pentagons (pentagons) yield. A very simple rectangular configuration of the individual cavities 5 by the ribs 4 can be seen in Fig. 8c (solution according to Fig. 1). . In the solution according to Fig only planar, ie plate-like lands 4 8d are provided which connect the outsole 14 with the Hinterfuß- or heel cup 12; the webs are arranged at an angle to the vertical and parallel to each other.

As can be seen in Fig. 5, the damping element 3 is not planar also here, but it follows the course of Hinterfuß- or heel cup 12, with the damping element 3 (extends to a certain height of the top web 4, which is almost extends horizontally, forms a degree of the damping element 3) corresponding to approximately half of the total height of the shoe in the heel area.

While the exemplary embodiment shows only the structure of the damping element 3 in the rear-13 The same may also apply to the forefoot.

The damping element 3 together with Hinterfuß- or heel cup 12 is preferably formed as an integral injection-molded (preferably of EVA). The outsole 14 can then be glued to this part. LIST OF REFERENCE NUMBERS
