' ‘2,109,566 Patented Mar. 1, 1938 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE" 2,109,566 SKATER’S OVEKSHOE Alfred E. Escher, Milwaukee, Wis. Application January 30, 1936, Serial No. 61,600 3 Claims. My invention relates to skater’s shoes and more particularly to a type of foot covering com monly referred to as an overshoe. The object of my invention is to provide a cov 5- ering for a skater’s shoe, having a skate attached, to assist in keeping the skater’s foot warm. Another object of my invention is to provide such a device that may be applied or removed 10 with but very little di?lculty. Still another object of my invention is to so construct the skater’s overshoe that it will fit snugly around the skate shoe and the posts of the skate attached to the sole 01' said shoe, thus preventing snow or the like from entering. These and further objects of my invention will become more apparent to persons familiar with the art of skating, as the description proceeds, and can be better understood by referring to the drawing which forms a part of the speci?ca 20 tion. ' In the drawing Fig. 1 illustrates the device as applied over a skate shoe, having a skate attached. (01. 36-71) is covered completely. The slit sole I2 is sepa rated so as to ?t around the posts I‘, H’ and H" of the skate thus aifording a complete coverage for the skate shoe. In Figure 3 is shown a modi?ed construction of the overshoe incorporating strap members I! for closing the back of the upper as well as hold ing the two halves of the sole together. These straps It! may be fastened by buckles or clasps 20 or any other manner for convenient manipu 10 lation by the user. _ It is obvious that one of the principal objec tions to skating as'a sport, is the fact that the skater’s feet become cold and damp due to the snow or the like contacting the skater’s shoe, 15 which is usually made of a soft pliable leather. My device eliminates and overcomes these objec tions inasmuch as it covers the front of the shoe entirely and due to the ?exible edges also covers the openingaor slits in the soles to prevent th cold and dampness from entering. - The invention is susceptible to various changes in its form and minor details of construction, and Fig. 2 is a perspective view of a similar device ‘ the right is herein reserved to make such changes illustrating the manner used in sealing a. slit in as properly fall within the scope of the appended 25 the sole about the posts of the skate and also claims. Having thus described my invention what I showing a talon fastener in the rear of the over claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent in shoe. > the United States, is: Fig. 3 is a perspective view of an overshoe ap 1. An overshoe for a shoe having a skate at 30 plied over a skater’s shoe equipped with straps 30 tached to the sole of said shoe, said overshoe and clasps instead of talon fasteners. .
