Simister, Astoria, N. Y. Application March 14, 1936, Serial No. 68,808 1 Claim. (Cl. 36-11) This invention relates to foot wear and par- ticularly to that variety of light shoes and slip`pers known as moccasins. ' rower portion are two sets of openings 33-34. An ornament, as the bow blank 35, seen in An object of the invention is to provide a 5 comfortable moccasin, consisting of few and simple parts so designed and constructed that these parts may- be assembled from proper blanks, by any person without previous experience. A further feature is in the provision of a moc- 10 casin that may be made in various sizes. Another purpose is »to produce av moccasin of attractive 4appearance from blanks precut, entirely without stitching, nailing or otherwise securing the parts in predetermined position exUI cept for the lacing means employed. These advantageous objects are attained by the novel design, construction and combination ` of parts hereinafter described and illustrated in the annexed drawing, constituting an essential 20, component of this disclosure, and in which:Figure 1 >is a plan -view of a blank forming the main body of a moccasin made in accordance with the invention. the shape of a truncated cone and in its nar- o . plan in Figure 4, is adapted to be disposed under the loop 30, the ends of the bow blank being 5 fancifully formed,\as at 36. In assembling> these several parts, a common ilat shoe lace 38, or its equivalent, is employed as a securing means. 'I'he blank I5 is maneuvered to present up- 10 standing edges I5', the bend occurring inside the line oi' apertures I8; the side folds I‘I are turned downwardly, and the rear of the moccasin formed by bending the blank so that its straight -rear edges are approximately in contact. 15 The counter 32 is formed` to extend at its narrow end into the pocket formed by bending the blank device while the wider, upper end 32’ is turned down over the adjacent end edges I5’ of the main blank, and the tab 2| is folded there- 20 over; the counter may, if preferred, be secured in place by any suitable adhesives. The upper 21 is assembled and the lacing 38. Figure 2 is a similar view of the blank conzsstituting the upper. Figure 3 is alike view of the heel counter. Y Figure 4 is a plan view‘of the blank from which the ornamental bow is formed. Figure 5 is ‘a perspective view of the moccasin ‘30 as fully assembled. Figure 6 is a. longitudinal sectional view taken on line 6-6 oi Figure 5: and beginning at the back, is threaded through the apertures 2i', then through the openings 33-34 25 continuing towards the front through apertures I6 and I8, then through the openings I6 and 2B in the upper, around the toe and back on the opposite side in similar sequence. From the foregoing, it» will be understood that 30 the material is of a flexible nature. that the several perforations in the adjoining parts must Figure 7 is afragmentary perspective view of the heel portion of the moccasin prior to final 35 assembly. Referring in greater detail to the drawing, the view shown in. Figure 1 includes a central, sole portion I5 extending from toe to heel, this element being demarcated by a marginal row of match, and that a single, fastening member alone is used in seeming and maintaining the moccasin in condition to impart comfort to the 35 wearer, and 'present a comely appearance. Although the foregoing is descriptive of the preferred embodiment of the invention, it will be apparent that minor changes may be made in 40 narrow slot-like apertures I 6. The rear portion of this blank has its lateral its construction without the exercise of inven- 40 tion or conflicting with the scope of the claim edges extended to form reverse folds Il at the heel, these folds having similar apertures I8, and their extreme outer edges are preferably 45-fancifu1ly formed as at I9. , hereto appended. ' n Having thus described the invention, what is claimed as new and desired to secure by Letters Patent, is: ‘ V 45 » Centrally 0fv the rear DOI'I‘fiOn 0f the blank are A moccasin comprising a main blank having spaced Cuts 20 having between them e» tab 2l a semloval front, a rectangular rear portion feldable upwardly at the ends of the cuts. and a substantially straight rear edge, said blank The mOCeaSin upper. indicated in Figure 2. iS having a single row of marginal perforations, a 50 generally oval in plan. its real' portion 25 hav-l counterblank having al row of perforations cor- 50 ing scalloped edges. 26.
