This invention appertains to new and useful

member 9.
larly to a novel fastening means between the
the U-shaped rigid
shoe and the foot of the wearer.
The principal object of the present invention frame for engaging at its slightly oifset back
portion I‘! the. rear of the foot just above the
is to provide foot attaching means for the snow
shoes whereby complete freedom of movement of heel and at its free ends is provided with loops
l8 through which pin members [9 extend for
the foot can be had, while at the same time af
‘fording a ?rm connection of the foot to the pivotally connecting the ends of the frame to
the connectors l0 between the upstanding par
shoe without likelihood of causing any resist
allel ?anges at 20-40. These ?anges 29-20
ance to the blood circulation of the wearer.
These and various other important objects of are provided with openings 2| at longitudinally
the invention will become apparent to the reader spaced intervals so that the pins Hi can be dis
posed through any pair of these openings de
of the following speci?cation.
In the drawings:
Figure 1 represents a top plan view of the
improved snowshoe;
Figure 2 represents an enlarged section on line
2—-2 of Figure 1;
Figure 3 is a perspective view of the foot en
gaging frame;
Figure 4 represents a perspective view of one
of the frame attaching members;
Figure 5 is an enlarged section on line 5-5
of Figure 1;
Figure 6 is a bottom plan view of the connector
shown in Figure 4.
Referring to the drawings wherein like nu
merals designate like parts, it can be seen that
30 numeral 5 represents the frame of the snowshoe.
This frame is one continuous piece of pliable
wood having its ends secured together as at 6.
Numeral 1 represents the mesh work of the shoe,
this mesh work extending forwardly from the
' cross-member 8 and rearwardly from the cross
member 9.
pending upon the adjustment desired. The loops
l8 are formed by strap iron members 22 nailed 15
or otherwise secured as at 23 to the end por
tions of the frame Hi.
The leg portions of the frame l6 are provided
with downwardly extending slots 24-44 through
which a strap member 25 is disposed and this 20
strap member is adapted to engage under the
instep of the wearer’s foot. A second strap 26
is disposed through the horizontal slot at 21 in
the end portions of the frame l6 and this strap
engages over the toe portion of the wearer’s foot. 25
Obviously, a foot engaging structure such as
this will afford complete freedom of movement
of the wearer’s foot without affecting the ?rm
connection of the snowshoe to the wearer’s foot.
While the foregoing speci?cation sets forth
the invention in speci?c terms, it is to be under
stood that numerous changes in the shape, size,
and materials may be resorted to without de
parting from the spirit and scope of the inven
tion as claimed hereinafter.
Having described the invention, what is
A pair of connectors such as is generally re
claimed as new is:
ferred to by numeral In in Figure 4, are em
In a snowshoe construction, a pair of shoe

wearer’s shoe can engage, said U-shaped member
ward end bent backwardly under itself to form a being provided with transverse loops at their
,a ‘loop l2 engaging around the cross-‘member 8 free ends disposed into the channeled members
and further extending rearwardly to engage with
the detent at IS. The opposite end of the elon
gated member I l is provided with a tongue M
which is bent under itself and also under the
cross~member 9 and then forwardly where a
downwardly struck out lip engages under the
and pins disposed through the channeled mem~
bers and through the said loops, for swingably
connecting the U-shaped member to the chan~
