This invention relates to shoe holders such as the side bars, of the bed, regardless of the de

_ The invention has in view as its foremost ob
Jective the provision of a shoe holder which is
made from a single piece of heavy Wire that may
be deformed or bent to provide all of the struc
10 tural elements of the finished article. With this
arrangement the shoe holder is readily and cheap
ly manufactured, and thus may be produced on
a commercial basis at a cheap price.
A further object of the invention is the pro
vision of a shoe holder of the character described
which is made from a single piece of heavy wire,
and which is formed with two side arms adapted
to be secured to an appropriate supporting struc
ture. Disposed between the side arms are the
holding elements that are designed to be received
in the toe or heel of the shoe, as the case may
be, and these holding‘ elements together with
connecting structure are made integral with the
IO 5
side pieces.
Another somewhat more detailed object of the
invention is the provision of a shoe holder of
the character described in which an improved
method of anchoring the side supporting arms

Accordingly this invention contem
plates an arrangement in which the free extrem

with an eye designed to receive a screw or simi
lar fastening element. Just beneath this fasten
ing element the turned-up portion is formed with
a bend that is intended to receive a supplemental
part be hereinafter stated, as the description
of the invention proceeds.
The invention, therefore, comprises a shoe
holder made from a single piece of heavy wire
which is deformed into the shape providing the
several structural elements of the holder; The
elements include spaced side arms which termi
nate in suitable means for anchoring the same
to supporting structure. Disposed intermediate
the side arms are a plurality of shoe holding ele
ments each of which i‘s-intended‘to be received 15
Within the heel or toe portion of a shoe, and
which are connected together by portions of
the Wire from which the‘article is made. De
tailed features of the invention reside in the
speci?c structure ‘at the free ends of the‘ side
arms for anchoring the same to a support.
For a full and more complete understanding
of the invention reference may be had to the
following description and accompanying draw
ing, wherein

Such a side bar is shown as an angle iron com

It will be noted that the holding elements l2 prising the vertically extending portion 24 and
at each end are connected to the side arm by the horizontally extending ?ange 25. The sus~
a connecting portion designated I3, and adja
cent holding elements I2 are joined together by
the connecting portions M. It is notable that
10 the side arms I!) and H, holding elements l2,
and connecting portions l3 and I4 are all inte
gral, and formed from a single piece of heavy
wire. The holding element I2 is of a shape ren
dering it readily adapted to being received in the
15 heel or toe of a shoe for the purpose of sup
porting the latter in position.
The free ends of each of the side arms l0 and
H are formed with a structure: for a?ixing vthe
same to a suitable support. The structure on
20 each of the side arms l0 and II is the same, and
one of ‘these ends is shown in ‘detail in Figure 2.
It will be noted that the side arm H has an up
turned end portion l5 that terminates in an eye
let I6 that is de?ned by the curled-over ex
25 tremity of the end ‘portion 15.
Just beneath the
eyelet IS the turned-up portion 15 is formed with
a bend l1.
As shown in Figure 2, appropriate v{fastening
means such as headed screws 18 are screwed
30 through the eyelet l6'and bend ll into thesup
porting structure designated l9, and thus ?rmly
anchors the holder in ‘position.
Referring now more particularly to Figure 3,
a side bar such ‘as is usually found in a wooden
35 bed is designated 20, and is-of the rectangular
cross section illustrated. When the shoe holder
of this invention is to be supported from the side
bar 20 the side arms l0 and 11 will terminate in
the supporting structure illustrated. Thus a ver
tically extending portion 2| is integrally connect
ed with the free end of the‘side arm in, and this
vertically extending portionis turned over at the
top, as shown at 22, to engage with the top sur
face vof the side bar 20. The top portion 22 is
then turned downwardly, as shown at 23, to pro
' vide a vertically extending portion engaging the
inner surface of the side bar'ZO.
It is evident that the structure comprising the
parts 2|, 22 and 23 constitutes a .hook for sus
pending the holder from the side bar 20 of the
pending structure which is formed integrally with
each end of the side arms in and H is shown
as comprising a vertically extending portion 26
adapted to engage against the front face of the 1O
vertically extending ?ange 24 of the angle iron.
The vertically extending portion 26 is inte
grally connected with a horizontally disposed
portion 21 that engages the top surface of the
horizontal ?ange 25. This horizontally extend
ing portion 27 terminates in a hook structure re
ferred to generally as ‘it, which receives the
?ange 25, and thus provides for secure anchorage
of the suspending structure comprising the parts
26, 21 and 28.
Due to the fact that the shoe holder herein
before described is readily adapted to be sup—
ported in position at any place where convenience
dictates, and also in ‘view of the fact that the
holder is made from a single piece of wire which
is readily deformed into the required shape of the
?nished article, the manufacture of the holders
is rendered cheap, and an article which is readily
acceptable to the buying public is thus provided.
While preferred speci?c embodiments of the 30
invention are hereinbefore set forth, it is to be
clearly understood that we are not to be limited
to the exact constructions illustrated and de
scribed, because various modi?cations of these
details may be provided in putting the invention
into practice within the purview of the appended
We claim:
A shoe holder of the character described com
prising a single piece of heavy wire bent into a
shape de?ning a pair of spaced side arms having
free ends which are turned upwardly and formed
with eyelets, there being bends in the up-turned
ends beneath said eyelets, and a plurality of shoe
holding elements formed from the wire inter
mediate said side arms, each of said elements
comprising a loop of metal having a narrow neck
and which is disposed above the plane of said side
