‘April 12, 1938. E, BRICKNER PROTECTOR'FOR USE IN RENOVATING SHOES Filed Oct. V7, 1936' 2, 1 14,045 Patented Apr. 12, 1938 2,114,045 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 2,114,045 PROTECTOR FOR USE IN RENOVATING SHOES Ernest Brickner, Minneapolis, Minn. Application October '7, 1936, Serial No. 104,412 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 20 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. 5 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. 25 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 with the accompanying drawing in which,— Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a shoe showing ' tion, therefore, is not to be restricted except insofar as is necessitated by the prior art and 30 30 it in‘the process of treatment. by the spirit of the following claim. Fig. 2 is a perspective view of one form of de I claim: ' vice which I employ. Fig. 3 is .a view in section on the line 3-—3 of Fig. 2. Fig. 4 is a view in section on the line 4-4 of 35 Fig. 2. Fig. 5 is a perspective view of another form of device. In the drawing, the numeral l0 designates a 40 shoe which is to be renovated. For the purpose of carrying out my invention, I preferably pro vide the protective device shown in Fig. 2. This device consists of an elastic tape l2 provided with a hook M to go over the front of the shoe sole 45 and with side hooks IE to grip the sole atits narrowest part under the instep. The hooks I6 A ‘device for use in renovating shoes comprising a band of elastic material adapted to pass around and fully cover the heel, instep and sole edges of a shoe, 2. hookv on the front of said band adapt ed to engage over the front of the shoe sole, hooks on opposite sides of said band adapted to engage the instep edges of the shoe, .a transverse tape of elastic material extending between said last 40 mentioned hooks for drawing said band upon the instep edges, and a grasping member extend ing out from the rear of said band for drawing the band around the heel of the shoe. 45 ERNEST BRICKNER.
