1 Claim. (01. 36—72)
My invention relates to process and device for
renovating shoes. While intended more partic
ularly for use in renovating white shoes by ap
plying whiting or similar material in liquid form,
5 it is to be understood that the invention may be
used in connection with other renovating liquids
applied to shoes other than white shoes.
An object of the invention is to providefor
applying a uniform coating of the renovating
>10 liquid to shoes in a, convenient manner. For
instance in renovating white shoes, it is cus~
ternary to apply the whiting liquid by means of
a pad or brush.
It is difficult to apply a uniform
coating in this manner and the heel and sole
15 edges of the shoes are apt to be smeared. I
have found that a uniform coating may be ex~
peditiously applied by spraying after a protective
covering has been applied to the heel and sole
edges of the shoes.
The novel features which I believe to be char
acteristic of my invention are set forth with
on the opposite side of the tape l2 are connected
by a transverse elastic tape I8. The tape [2
is in the form of a band whose ends are stitched
together at the rear to provide a grasping mem
ber 20.
In operation, the hook I4 is engaged with the
toe portion of the sole as shown in Fig. 1 and
the hooks l6 are engaged with the opposite sides
of the instep portion of the sole, it being under
stood that the elastic tape l8 will draw the band
I2 into close engagement with the edges of the
sole. The grasping member 2!] is then pulled to
draw the band l2 around the heel of the shoe, so
that the heel and edges of the sole are fully pro
tected. When the protective covering has thus 15
been secured in place, the. renovating liquid is
sprayed on the shoes by means of any well known
form of atomizer 22.. The fact that the tapes l2
and I8 are of elastic material renders the device
capable of application to and removal from var 20
ious sizes and shapes of shoes.
Fig. 5 shows another form of protective device
consisting of a rubber shoe form 24 having nar
row flanges 26 and 28 adapted to ?t over the
heel and sole edges of the shoe.
Although I have shown and described; speci?c
embodiments of my invention, I am fully aware
particularity in the appended claim. The in
vention itself, however, both as to its organiza-'
tion and method of operation, together with ad
ditional objects and advantages thereof will be
best understood from the following description
of speci?c embodiments when read in connection
> that other embodiments are possible. My inven

In the drawing, the numeral l0 designates a

device consists of an elastic tape l2 provided with

the instep edges, and a grasping member extend
ing out from the rear of said band for drawing
