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
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

Having thus described my invention what I
