5 Claims. (01. 35-471‘)
Thisinvention relates to arch supports adapt
ed to be placed in shoes and to the blanks from
which such supports may be quickly, easily and
cheaply made.
In the present state of the art, arch supports
are made in two distinct types. The common type
of arch support is made in standard sizes. These
standard sizes are not adaptable to any large
number of feet and are not suitable for use in
10 every type of shoe. The other type of arch sup
port‘is made to ?t individual feet. In order to
obtain an arch support which properly ?ts the
individual foot, it is necessary for an orthopedic
expert to make a plaster mold of the foot. A
15 metal casting is then formed and ?nished to
?t the foot and the shoe, using the mold as a
pattern. The making of this type of arch sup
port requires considerable time and is, of neces
sity, expensive, as is apparent. Even the best of
these arch supports are often cumbersome.
My invention has for its purpose, the provi
sion of arch supports adapted to be ?tted to the
individual foot which do not require the services
of an expert either in the making of the sup
port or the ?tting of the support to the foot and
which may be made in a few moments.
Another purpose of the invention is to provide a
blank from which arch supports may be made by
the use of a minimum amount of equipment.
Another purpose of the invention is to pro
vide a blank of sheet metal or plastics, cellulose
with supports‘at the transverse and. at the longie
tudinal
arch positions.

‘Fig. (his -a top 'view'of' a?blank illustrating
shortened appendages to provide an arch sup
port having lower arches and illustrating the
blank provided with a plurality of perforations.
Referring to the. drawingv in detail, a blank is
provided having sole portion 5, a longitudinally
projecting appendage 3 and a laterally project
ing appendage I. The sole portion 5 is so shaped 10
as to conform to the heel, instep and ball por
tions of a shoe.
The transverse arch or meta
tarsal arch support is formed by bending down
wardly appendage 3, at substantially right angles
to sole 5, along line ‘I. In order to provide a per
15
manent support at this point, the appendage is
formed with Wing-shaped projections 4 which are
adapted to be bent inwardly under sole 5 at sub
stantially right angles to appendage 3 along lines
9, as illustrated in Figs. 2 and 3. The longitudi 20
nal arch is formed by bending downwardly ap
pendage l at substantially right angles to sole 5,
along the line 6.
In order to provide a perma
nent support at this point, the appendage is
formed with wing-shaped projections 2 which 25
are adapted to be bent inwardly under sole 5 at
substantially right angles to appendage I along
lines ‘8, as illustrated in Figs. 2 and 3.
Figs. 2 and 3 are top and side. views, respective
ly, of a completed arch support. The appendages 30
l and 3 are shown bent downwardly, with the
plastics and hard rubber having been found par
ticularly useful, from which arch supports may
be formed.
Another purpose of the invention is to provide
blanks from which arch supports may be easily
and quickly shaped by the use of the “annealing,
forming and cutting machine” of the type de
Wing-shaped projections 2 and 4 bent inwardly
under the sole portion to support the longitudinal
and transverse arches, respectively.
will appear as the description progresses, the in
vention resides in novel features in construction
arches are lower.
Fig. 4 illustrates a blank which may be used 35
to form a support having lower arches, the sole
portion having a plurality of small holes H! to
provide ventilation of the feet. A blank having
scribed in my Patent No. 1,990,092 granted Feb- ‘ full sized appendages is provided and the ap
pendages I and 3 are cut, as indicated, to allow 40
I‘uary 5, 1935.
With these and other objects in view which the forming of an arch support in which the
hereinafter described and claimed, it being un
45 derstood that changes may be made from the
precise embodiment as shown without departin
from the spirit of the invention.
‘
Referring to the drawing:
Fig. 1 is a top View of the blank from which
50 arch supports are made. ‘
Fig. 2 is a top view indicating in dotted lines
the appendages folded under the sole portion for
purpose of supporting the transverse and inner
longitudinal arches.
55
Fig. 3 is a side view of an arch support formed
.
The. arch supporting means is thus formed of
a blank in the shape of the heel, instep and ball
portions of a shoe, or the shape of the insole of 45
a shoe minus the front toe portion. The blank is
provided with integral appendages having free
wing-shaped projections integral with the ap
pendages. The appendages when bent down
wardly at right angles to the blank and the wing 50
shaped projections when bent inwardly at right
angles to the appendages, serve as supports for
the arches.
,
These blanks, as stated, may be formed of any
desirable material; cellulose acetate sheeting of 55

1% inch thickness has been found suitable. This
porting appendage portion bent down at right
material is very strong,‘ semi-elastic and wash
angles to the sole portion with free tips perpen
dicularly supporting the sole portion at the posi
tion of the arch.
4. In a blank for making arch supports, a ?at 5
piece of material shaped in the form of the insole
of a shoe less the front toe portion with wing
like appendages having free tips located at the
positions of the transverse and inner longitudinal
able and can be formed up readily on the anneal
ing, forming and cutting machine of my patent
previously mentioned.
Having thus described my invention what I
claim is:—
1. In arch supporting means and a blank there
for, a single piece of flat material cut in the
10 shape of the inner sole of a shoe with appended
wings having free ends located at the positions of
the arches which wings may be folded down with
the free ends turned under the sole to serve as
supports.

2. In an arch support made of a single piece of
?at material, a main portion shaped like the in
ner sole of a shoe and an appended wing portion
folded at right angles to the sole with free tips
folded perpendicularly under the sole at the posi
20 tion of the inner longitudinal or transverse arch.
3. In an arch support made of a single ?at
piece of material, a sole portion less the toe por
tion shaped like the insole of a shoe and a sup
arches of the foot respectively.
10
5. An arch support blank comprising a perfo
rated body portion, an outwardly projecting ap
pendage integral with said body portion at the
position of an arch and wing-shaped projections
integral with said appendage, said body portion 15
being adapted to be shaped so as to support the
sole of a foot, said appendage being adapted to
be bent downwardly at substantially right angles
to said body portion, said wing-shaped projec
tions being adapted to be bent inwardly at sub 20
stantially right angles to said appendage and
under said body portion.
