From the foregoing description, it will be clearly
tached to the heel over the heel guard, the nails or
55 pins used for thus attaching it are guided by the seen that the heel guard is interposed between the
heel body and the lift or rubber heel, and is in
tended not only to serve as a guard for the heel
when the lift is worn down or lost, but is designed
to de?ne the placing of the attaching nails of
the lift within the heel body in such a manner as
to effectively prevent splitting of the heel or driv
ing the nails through the sides of the heel, both
of which possibilities are most undesirable. The
heel guard also serves for securely holding down
the inner face heel reinforcement, sometimes ad
vantageous to be provided in connection with the
heel body.
In the drawing, I have shown a speci?c con
struction of a reinforced heel, and a speci?c con
15 struction of a heel guard, the latter provided with
means for attaching it to the heel body and means
for controlling or guiding the fastening meansv
for the lift or rubber heel relative to the heel body
for preventing splitting thereof and for prevent
ing the driving of the nails through the sides of
the heel.
It is to be clearly understood that While such
speci?c structures are illustrated and described,
changes and improvements may be made both in
25 the heel and the heel guard, as long as the above
described principal features of my invention are
present, and I reserve for myself the right to
make changes and improvements in my inven
tion, without departing from the broad scope
30 thereof, as set forth in the annexed claims:
I claim:
1. The combination with a heel provided with a
tread member, of a heel guard interposed between
the heel body and said tread member, said heel
guard comprising a peripheral rim portion, sub
stantially corresponding to the exterior curvature
of the heel, and having a cutout at the front edge
of the heel, substantially cross-shaped connec
tions provided within the rim portion and divid
40 ing the heel guard into ?elds, said connections
provided with means for facilitating the fastening
of the heel guard directly to the body, the interior
peripheral edges of said ?elds being adapted for
controlling the location of fastening means for
45 attaching the tread member to the heel.
2. The combination with a heel having a tread
member, of a heel guard interposed between the
heel body and the tread member, said heel guard
comprising a peripheral, curved rim portion cor
responding to the exterior contour of the heel and
a front, substantially straight portion, corre
sponding to the front edge of the heel, substan
tially cross-shaped braces connecting the curved
and straight rim portions and forming at the
latter portion the sides of a recess or cutout,
which cutout serves for the reception of fastening 10
means for the tread member, located exteriorly
to said guard, said braces having means for ac
commodating fastening means for attaching the
guard directly to the heel body, said braces divid
ing the guard into ?elds, the interior peripheral
edges of which serving for controlling the location
or positioning of fastening means for the tread
member, passing through the attached guard.
3. Ina heel guard, a sheet member provided
with a curved outer and a substantially straight 20
front rim portion, a pair ‘of braces connecting the
outer and front rim portions and dividing the
interior of the guard into ?elds, the portions of
the braces connected with the front rim portion
forming the sides of a recess or cutout, said 25
braces provided with means for accommodating
fastening means for attaching the guard directly
to the heel, the interior peripheral edges of the
?elds serving as guides for fastening means for
attaching a lift to a heel through said guard, while 30
said recess or cutout permits the passage there
through of fastening means exterior of the guard.
4. A heel guard, comprising a plate from which
portions are removed so that the remaining ma
terial forms a substantially horseshoe-shaped 35
outer rim, a front, substantially straight portion
and substantially X-shaped braces connecting the
rim with said latter portion, the ends of said
braces associated with said straight portion form
ing a recess, said braces dividing the interior of
the plate into ?elds, the interior peripheral edges
of the ?elds serving as guides for lift fastening
means, said braces provided with means for
accommodating attaching means for the guard.
