2 Claims.
This invention'relates to heels for footwear.
It is particularly directed to a light weight, long
wearing heel for men’s and women’s shoes or
An object of this invention is to provide a heel
of the character described, so constructed as to
allow nails to be driven in without splitting, and
which shall be extremely light and strong.
A further object of this invention is to pro
vide a heel of the character described made of
layers of wood and leather, or rubber, and which
‘ shall be strong and rugged in construction, and
easy to make.
Yet another object of this invention is to pro
15 vide a heel of the character described which shall
be relatively inexpensive to manufacture, and yet
' practical and eflicient to a high degree in use.
Other objects of this invention will in part be
obvious Vand in part hereinafter pointed out.
The invention accordingly consists in the fea
tures of construction, combinations of elements,
and arrangement of parts which will be exempli
ñed in the construction hereinafter described,
and of which the scope of application will be
2 Cl indicated in the following claims.
In the accompanying drawing, in which is
shown one of the various possible illustrative em
bodiments of this invention,
bodying the invention, with parts in cross-sec
tion; and
of attaching the same to the shoe or slipper.
The part I4 is preferably considerably thicker
than the leather layers I2 and I3.
The wood part I4 is preferably made of cypress
knee wood. The cypress knee wood grows from 5
the root of the cypress tree, and extends above
the ground. This wood not having a decided
grain allows the nails to be driven without caus
ing the wood to split. 'I'his wood is much lighter
than the usual cypress wood, and has been found
to be extremely efn‘cient for the purposes above
set forth. 'I'he leather portions I2, I3 are prefer
ably oak tanned.
The combination in a heel of leather or rubber
and wood produces a heel having extremely long
wearing quality. Such a heel is rugged, practical
and efñcient.
The heel can be made in any size or shape.
The invention may be incorporated in heels for
shoes for either men or women.
The heel is eX
tremely cheap to fabricate and will not split even
if a considerable number of nails are driven
into it.
It will thus be seen that there is provided a
device in which the several objects of this inven- 2
tion are achieved, and which is well adapted to
meet the conditions of practical use.
As various possible embodiments might be

Fig. 2 is a bottom plan View of my improved
heel, with parts broken away.
Referring now in detail to the drawing, I0 des
35 ignates a heel embodying the invention applied
to a shoe or slipper II. The heel I 0 comprises
a lift layer I2 of leather or rubber, a tread layer
I3 of leather or rubber, and an intermediate lay
er or portion I4 of wood. The strips of leather
40 or rubber may be adhered to opposite faces of
the wood part I4, by glue or in any other suit
able manner as at I8 and I9. Furthermore nails
20 may be driven through the leather and wood
to hold the same together, and for the purpose
made of the above invention, and as various
changes might be made in the embodiments set 30 '
forth, it is to be understood that all matter
herein set forth or shown in the accompanying
drawing is to be interpreted as illustrative and
not in a limiting sense.
Having thus described my invention, I claim 35
as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent:
l. A shoe heel having an intermediate major
part made of cypress knee wood and tread and
lift layers of leather on opposite sides of said
2. A shoe having a heel comprising a major
part made of cypress knee wood, and a tread at
tached thereto.
