Application August 29, 1936, Serial No. 98,436
8 Claims.
(Cl. 36--71)
The main objects of this invention are:
First,v to provi-de an improved shoe character
ized by reinforced arch construction.
Second, to provide a shoe which is proof
5 against distortion due to the vertical load by
means of a greatly stiffened and strengthened
arch.
Third, to provide a shoe of the type described
having a reinforcing saddle construction further
thereof on the inner side of the shoe. The saddle
1 is of a relatively stiff leather construction as de
scribed in my co-pending` application and is pro
of laterally and vertically
vided for the purpose
10 strengthened by an appropriately conformed
metal plate to laterally and vertically stiffen the
arch.
Objects pertaining to details and economies of
the invention will appear from the description
15 to follow'. The invention is defined in the claims.
A’preferred embodiment of the invention is il
lustrated in the accompanying drawing, wherein:

Accordingly, to u correct the Y above mentioned
defects, I provide a metal stiffening plate I0 cor
responding in shape to the saddle 1 and inserted
between the saddle 'I and the insole 5. ~The plate

This invention relates to'improvements on the
March 20, 1936, wherein a conformed leather sad

by means of a plurality’of wooden pegs driven
through the 'saddle elements normally of the

purpose of eliminating possibility of collapse or
distortion of the shoe when abnormal stresses or
conditions are imposed thereon.

driven into the shoe structure in a direction nor

pegs relative to one another is provided. Such an
angular relation effects a keystone bridging ac
tion of the pegs and shoe parts which is highly
effective in resisting vertical distortion. 'I'he pegs
