(Cl. 12-142) My invention relates to- shoes and a method of making same, and more particularly to shoes wihth plaited uppers and a method of making such s oes. One object of my invention is to provide a shoe with plaited upper, which combines the ?exibility of usual shoes having plaited uppers with the strength of shoes having a welt stitched to an leather and provided with holes c (Fig. 2) is ap plied to the bottom of said last a and is tempo rarily tacked to the same. Subsequently to or simultaneously with the application of the welt d, a ?ller j, which may be made of sponge rubber for example, is inserted into the space surrounded by said U-shaped welt (see Figs. 3,4 and 5). In order to hold this ?ller in its position a piece of outer sole. canvas or linen g projecting over the contour of 10 In order to carry out my invention into prac 1 the ?ller is applied to said ?ller and said welt 10 tice, I use a method of making shoes with plaited and is attached to the latter (Figs. 3. 4, 5). The uppers, which comprises the steps of preparing end a’ of the piece a of fabric, which projects an upper of plaited strips on a last, applying a . from the edges of the welt and the ?ller is con substantially U-shaped'?at welt provided with holes to the bottom of said last, placing a filler into-the space surrounded by said U-shaped welt. applying a piece of fabric with a shank piece con nected to one of its ends on said ?ller and said welt and attaching said piece of fabric to 20 said welt, lacing said strips through said holes in the welt, cementing an outer sole to said piece of fabric and said shank piece, and stitching said welt to said outer sole exterior to said holes. A shoe made according to my new 25 method has no inner sole, so that the ?exibility of a shoe with plaited upper is maintained, ‘while its strength is increased by the arrangement of the welt. _ The above mentioned object and advantage as well as other objects and advantages‘ will be more fully disclosed in the following specification nected to the usual shank piece h which extends to the heel seat'of the shoe (Figs. 3 and 4) . The '16 straps forming the plaited upper are then laced through the holes e of welt d. The straps are usuallycontinuous; if there are ends. they are tied below the welt (Figs. 1- and 3). The quarter of the shoe is then tacked in the usual manner to the 20 last. Without removing the upper of the shoe from the last, the outer sole i is applied and cemented to the piece a of fabric and the shank piece h, and the welt is stitched to the outer sole exterior to the holes e as indicated at n. Then 25 the shoe is removed from the last, the heel is aiilxed'in a known manner and a thin lining m covering the ?ller I and the welt d is applied thereto, as shown in Figs. 5 and 6.
