5 Claims.'-'(Cl.12#—128.1)
Thisvinvention relates .to- van improvement in
shoe forms and more particularly‘v tQ'ShOe forms
having a toe member which enters and plumps
out the walls of a shoe toe and a back part mem
5 ber which engages the heel counter and remov
ably holdsthe toe member in. position.
The primary object of this invention is vto
provide a shoe form of the above described, type
wherein the cone of the toe member is yieldably
10 elevated and the side walls thereof; contracted.
A further object of thisinvention is to pro
vide a- shoe form having aback partv member
covered by a shoe lace or other tubular fabric.
These and other objects will appear from a
‘1:5 consideration of the following description of s the
invention and of the drawing which forms a-part
thereof and in which

Fig. 6 is a view similar to Fig. 4 illustrating
still another embodiment of the invention; and
Fig. 7 is an enlarged view of a fragment of a
back part member.
The various embodiments of this invention
35 each comprise a hollow walled toe member l0
and a back part member H. The toe member
I 63 includes ball ?anges it connected by cross
braces which are not here shown but may be
of any well known type. The toe member ill is
40 inserted into the toe of a shoe l5 and the back
part member ll bears against the heel counter
16. The rear part ll of the toe member, which
may be conveniently designated as the cone in
view of the use of that term to designate the
45 corresponding part of a shoe last, serves to sup
port the strap [8 of the shoe illustrated, The
back part member H, connected at its forward
end to the cone above the ?anges I2, preferably,
though not necessarily, rests upon the inner sole
50 of the shoe and is not visible when the shoe is
looked at from the side.
The toe member 50 possesses inherent resili
ency and is here shown as made of celluloid but
might, if desired, be of ?bre or other material
55 which is resilient and yieldable. The back part
.
’
member H also possesses resiliency and is here
shown as comprising a Wire 20 encased in a tube
Zlfofcelluloid 'overwhich a fabric sheath 22, for
example a shoe lace, may be slipped, the sheath
22 being preferably cemented or otherwise ad- 5
hesively secured to the tube 2!. The fabric
sheath may be of any desired color to harmonize
with the shoes being displayed thereon.
The back part member ll of the embodiments
shown in Figs. 1, 2, and 3 is secured at the for- 10
ward end of the toe member at the vtop center of
the cone I'I, extends forwardly, downwardly and
rearwardly‘and terminates in a loop 25 which,
when the form is inserted in a shoe,‘ rests against
the heel. counter I6 thereof. The intermediate 15
portion 26 of the back part member, when the
form is fully inserted inv a shoe, rests upon the
inner sole of the shoe slightly inadvance of the
rear edge of the toe member.
,- These two embodiments differ only in‘ the .20
means by which. the forward end is secured to
the "toe member. In the embodiment shown in
Figs. 1 and '2 the back part member is secured
by any suitablecement or adhesive while in the
embodiment shown-in Fig, 3 the securement is 25
by a rivet 21 passed through a loop in the wire 20.
;; As the form is inserted in the shoe the back
part member I l, performs two operations, ?rst, it
advances thetoe member into the toe of the
shoe and, second, due to the bearing of the in- 30
termediate portion 25 upon the inner sole of
the shoe, it elevates the cone ll of the toe mem~
her. The inherent resiliency of the back part
member causes the pressure exerted by both these _
operations to be yieldably applied so that no 35
undue pressure or strain is placed upon the ma
terial forming the shoe upper. The side walls
of the cone are, by the elevation thereof, con
tracted to give the formed shoe the appearance
of narrowness which has been found particu- 4O
larly pleasing and desirable.
The back part member ll ‘of the embodiments
shown in Figs. 4, 5, and 6 is substantially double
the length of the corresponding member of the
embodiments previously described and is bent 45
midway between its ends. Both ends of the
wire 20 are exposed at the forward'ends of the
member II and secured to the side walls of
the cone I‘! by studs or rivets 30. The bend 3!,
which forms the rearward end of the back part 50
member, bears against the heel counter l6 and
the intermediate portion 32 rests upon the inner
sole of the shoe just in advance of the shoe heel.
The member ll passes downwardly, outwardly
and forwardly from the studs or rivets 30 to bends 55
