‘This invention relates to improvements in arch
supporting shoes.
'
In a well-known type of arch supporting shoe
the insole is provided with a lateral extension or
of the stitches. Thus, the insole extensions or
wings are reinforced by the'outsole extensions
which are or may be ‘substantially heavier and
stiffer than the insole extensions‘ and when‘the
parts are bound to each‘ other and‘to the upper 5
by'the stitches an exceptionally strong and sub
5 wing commonly known as a “cookie” in its shank
portion for supporting the inner longitudinal
arch of the foot. Such an insole extension, how
ever, usually functions at best only inadequately
foot.
‘ to support the foot inasmuch as it does‘ not have
10 the requisite amount of ‘stiffness to retain its
erence to the accompanying drawings, in which 10
shape and consequently it usually breaks ‘down
quickly underthe weight and pressure of the foot
and ?nally becomes entirely ,ineiiective.
The ‘present invention aims to provide an arch
‘ ‘l‘f‘i‘ supporting shoe which is of simple and inexpen
sive construction and in which the‘ usual disad
vantages of this general type of shoe above‘r‘e
ferred to are entirely overcome.
,
With this end infview, Ihave provided a shoe
530 comprising an insole and an outsole one of‘which
has an upwardly turned lateral extension in its
shank portion, an upper a portion of which over-7
lies the sole extension, and ,fastenings which ex
tend through the upper and through the marginal
25 portion of thesole extension and secure those
parts together. Advantageously, through-and
through lock stitches are employed as the .iasten
ings for securing together the upper and the sole
extension so as to give strength tothe shoe with
30 out unduly stiffening it in the‘ vicinity of ‘the
seam. In order to simplify the construction and
to reduce the costofImanufacture of the‘ shoe
these stitches are made part of a single continua
‘ ous row of stitching which extends ‘around the
35 forepart as well as along opposite‘ sides of the
shank portion of the shoe bottom and constitute

Referring ?rst to Figs. 1 to 4, inclusive, the 25
shoe therein shown comprises an insole !2, an
outsole [hand an upper l6 the margins of which
are inturned between the-margins ‘of the insole
and the outsole and are secured‘ to both soles
by means of stitches [8, .herein illustrated as 30
lock stitches, which extend through .both soles
and through thevupper 16, the stitches being ar
ranged, in a ‘single continuous row or line, thus
providing a continuous lock stitch ‘seam which
extends entirely around the forepart and along 35
opposite sides of the shank portion of the shoe.

and the outsole in those portions of the shoe.

and location with the wings 22 and 24, respec- 50

shoe bottom the stitching, instead of following
the lines of the shank edges of a normal insole,
extends along lines substantially parallel to and
closely adjacent to the outer edges of the sole 55

and 4, so as ?rmly to secure the marginal por
tions of the insole and outsole extensions to the
upper. As indicated, the stitches I8 are laid in
marginal channels 30 formed in the outsole and
also be realized by constructing a shoe, as il
lustrated in Fig. 8, wherein an arch supporting
extension or wing 220 is formed at the inside

wing is formed upon the outsole I40. In making
this shoe the continuous row of stitches which
secures the upper to the inner and outer soles

tute means for binding ?rmly together the upper
and the marginal portions of the insole and out
sole extensions thereby causing the latter to co
operate to provide effective and substantial un
yielding supports for both the inner and outer
15 longitudinal arches of the foot. Being ?rmly
secured or anchored near their edge portions to
the upper which extends between them through
out their full width as shown in the drawings,
the arch supporting insole and outsole extensions
may extend only through the upper and through
the marginal portion of the insole extension 220
in the shank portion of the shoe. In this shoe
the marginal portion of the outsole at the inside
shank portion of the shoe may advantageously 15
be secured to the upper by separate fastening
means as, for example, by means of cement, as
indicated at 38. In Fig. 8 the upper materials
are shown as comprising an upper I60, a lining
I62, and a counter I64 which is located between 20
20 are reinforced and strengthened in such a man
the upper and the lining, this being the usual
ner that they will have no tendency to break
down or to become deformed under the weight
and pressure of the foot when the shoe is being
worn. Thus exceptionally effective and substan
construction of an upper in the heel and shank
portion of a shoe. Preferably the counter I'BII
extends forwardly far enough to underlie at least
a substantial portion of the sole extensions and, 25
if desired, the counter may be extended forwardly
suf?ciently to underlie the entire area of the sole
tial arch supports are provided at opposite sides
of the shank portion of the shoe bottom and an
arch supporting shoe of the so-called “cookie”
type is provided which is free from the disad
vantages incident to shoes of this general type
as ordinarily constructed. Moreover, inasmuch

Having described my invention, what I claim
as the fastenings which secure the insole exten
as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent of
sions to the upper and thus bind the parts to
the United States is:
gether so that they become more effective to per
form their intended functions are parts of a
35 single continuous row of stitches which serve also
to secure both soles to the upper in the forepart
1. A shoe comprising an insole having an up
wardly turned lateral extension in its shank por 35
tion, an outsole having an upwardly turned lat
eral extension in its shank portion, an upper hav
ing its margin inturned between the insole and
the outsole, a shank stiffener between said soles
having a lateral arch supporting wing located 40
between said lateral extensions of the soles and
as well as in the shank portion of the shoe, the
shoe is of unusually simple construction and in
expensive to manufacture.

For the purpose of providing a still stronger
support for the inner longitudinal arch of the
foot the shank stiffener instead of being formed
extending substantially throughout the length of
as shown in Figs. 3 and 4 may be formed as
shown at 200 in Figs. 5 and 6 with an integral
lateral extension or wing 3'6 at its outer side for
reinforcing the inside lateral extensions or Wings
22 and 26 of the insole and outsole, respectively.
As also shown in Figs, 5 and 6, the insole and
the outsole may each be formed with a lateral
50 arch supporting wing or extension at its inside
shank portion only, the soles being of normal edge
contour at their outside shank portions. The,
shank stiffener employed in a shoe the" soles of
55 which have lateral shank extensions only at their
‘ inner sides may itself be provided with a rein
forcing wing such as the wing 36 or an ordinary
shank stiffener having no lateral extension may
be used.
.
Certain advantages of the present invention
may be realized by constructing the shoe as shown
in Fig. '7, wherein an arch supporting wing or
extension 260 is formed upon the outsole but the
insole I20 has no corresponding extension formed
thereon. In making the type of shoe shown in
Fig. '7 the stitches of the continuous row which
secures together the upper and the inner and
outer soles may extend only through the upper
and through the marginal portion of the exten
70 sion of the outer sole in the shank portion of the
the shank portion of the shoe, and a continuous
line of stitches uniting the upper with the body
portions and with the lateral extensions of both 45
soles, said line of stitches providing a continuous
stitched seam extending around the forepart and
along the opposite sides of the shank portion of
the shoe and the stitches of said seam extending
through the upper and through both soles and 50
being located close to the upper edges of said body
portions and said lateral extensions.
2. A shoe comprising an insole having at each
side of its shank portion anv upwardly turned lat
eral extension, an outsole having at each side of 55
its shank portion an upwardly turned lateral ex
tension, the lateral extensions upon the outsole
being substantially co-extensive with those upon
the insole, an upper having its margin inturned
between the insole and the outsole, and a row of 60
lock stitches uniting the upper with the body
portions and with the lateral extensions of both
soles, said stitches being located close to the edges
of said lateral extensions and being covered by a
channel flap formed on the outer side of the out 65
sole and said stitches providing a continuous lock
stitched seam extending around the forepart and
along both sides of the shank portion of the
shoe.
