The method of the present invention is adapted
to expedite sole pressing operations such as sole
a?ixing, laying or leveling, and may be carried
out by means of any suitable apparatus. This
method can readily be understood when described
in conjunction with the herein illustrated form
of apparatus which is especially suited to its per
Referring more particularly to the drawings, in
the form of apparatus shown there is provided
unnecessary accurately to position the lasted shoe
beneath the bearing member and the instep pad.
The casing I3 has a bottom portion 22 adapted
to lie along and conform to the bottom portion of
the cavity II and a top portion 23, adaptedv to
bear up against the underside of the shoe. The
portions 22 and 23 are joined by a vertical por
tion 24 of a height substantially level with the
sole to permit the top portion 23 to bear up above
the level of thesole at its periphery so as to ex
ert pressure against the sole even at its extreme
edge. To effect this result,‘ it is desirable that‘
the top portion 23 be materially concaved, even
when shoes of small vertical height are being
constructed. This makes it possible to utilize the
same clamp for shoes of di?erent heights without
the necessity of having the parts mechanically
adjustable since the form of casing employed
makes it possible to obtain the effect of such ad
justment by the ‘?exibility of the pad itself. The. 40
in?atable pad I2 is of such shape and contouras
to conform to the interior of the casing.
This vertical portion 24 preferably supports the
top portion 23 which constitutes the bearing sur
face to engage the underside of the sole'at'a 45
slightly higher level at the ‘instep portion than at
the other portions of the shoe, and the bearing
surface 23 is also preferably somewhat wider at
its center than at the ends in order that the
proper pressure may be assured at all points.
A conduit 28 extending through the bottom of
the pad 12 and of the base It) is held in place by
a nut 29 to make an air tight joint. This con-,
a base member [0 which is generally rectangular , duit carries at its outer end a valve 30. Such
valve may be of any suitable or known type
55 in shape and may be conveniently made of light '
adapted to permit in?ation and de?ation of the
pad [2. One desirable form of valve for effecting
this is shown for example in my Patent No.
2,009,575, granted July 30, 1935. .
The elongated shape of the bearing member I6
allows varying sizes of shoes tobe treated in a
press constructed as above described, since omis
sion of a pin to enter the usual last pin hole in
the cone of the last on which the upper is lasted
eliminates the necessity of adjusting the instep
pad I5 and the heel bearing member 16 along
especial advantage in the method is obtained
when the vertical expansibility of the pad is made
great enough to compensate by inflation alone for
variations in employed last sizes, even when these
range over a considerable scale. ' It will also be
seen that the method is useful in various sole
pressing operations such as a?ixing, laying and

25 shoe has been inserted in .place.
With the present form of invention, different
heights of shoe may be taken care of without the
necessity of adjusting the instep pad or the heel
pad because ‘the top surface of the casing is such
30 that even when the enclosed pad is well in?ated,
it will nevertheless extend upwardly around the
shoe at the sides of the sole to maintain the ad
justment of the sole ?rmly in contact with the
lasted upper to insure the complete adhesion as
35 the cement dries. With this form of the inven
tion, therefore, it is necessary only to insert the
lasted shoe in place, and it will be ?rmly engaged
as soon as air is admitted to the pad.

adhesive therebetween, between an immovable
support and an in?atable pad, and the support
is kept immovable throughout successive loading
operations, the pad alone "-being in?ated through
45 a su?icient vertical displacement to enable it to
press the sole against the lasted upper. The pad
is so constructed that it is even able to compen
sate by in?ation alone for substantial ‘variations
in employed last sizes.
From the above description it will be seen that
the present method avoids the time consuming
adjustments of the toe and heel post supports
which heretofore have always been relatively
movable with respect to the pad support. It will
be understood that this method can be carried
out on any suitable form of apparatus in which
the toe and heel supports are capable of being
kept ?xed with respect to the pad support during
successive loading operations and in which the
pad is capable of pressing the types of shoes to
be worked on against such supporting posts. An
