1 Claim. (Cl. 12-433)
My invention relates to a new and useful shoe
last and is particularly directed towards provid
ing a shoe last on which a shoe can be formed,
the curvature of the arch being such as to pro
5 vide support to all parts of the foot and while
the curvature of the last is adaptable to all types
of feet it is particularly bene?cial for those which
would otherwise require some form of arch sup
port either built into the shoe or forming a sepa
10 rate part thereof.
The manner in which I attain the objects of
my invention is by shaping the arch of the last
in such a manner as to curve sharply and arcu
ately upwardly immediately to the rear of the
15 ball of the foot in order that the arch of the
shoe may be formed to press ?rmly against that
part of the foot where the arch curves down
wardly to meet the ball. The sharp convex
curvature of the arch of the last, the convex sur
20 face facing towards the toe portion, then ?attens
to a smooth even curve extending towards the
heel of the last.
To obtain a clear understanding of my inven
3, the toe portion 4, the arch portion 5 and the
heel portion 6.
The principal feature of my invention lies in
the curvature of the arch portion 5 wherein it is
curved arcuately from a point immediately to 5
the rear of the ball portion 3 to a height de
pendent on the height of the heel of the shoe
formed on the last. As the curvature approaches
its maxmum height it then curves very slightly
downwards and to the rear of the heel portion 6.
I have found the type of curvature of the
arch portion which I have invented is adaptable
to lasts for all types of shoes, men’s, women’s
and children’s and. may be varied in accordance
with the desired height of heel. Obviously, of 15
course, the body of the last, such as the ball
portion, heel, toe and arch portions must be
varied in accordance with the type of shoe to
be formed therefrom. Insofar as the curvature
of the arch portion is concerned, however, I have 20
found that this type of curvature may be em
bodied in lasts for any of the above types of
Having thus fully described my invention what
tion, reference may be had to the following de
25 scription and accompanying drawing in which:

I claim is new and desire to secure by Letters 25
Patent is:
A shoe last of the class described in which the
a preferred embodiment of my last on which is
arch portion rises substantially vertically imme
diately rearwardly of the ball of the foot thence
curves convexly to its highest point as deter- 30
mined by the height of the heel of the shoe formed
formed a lady’s right shoe.
Fig. 2 is a side elevation of the left side of the
30 same last.
Fig. 3 is a bottom plan view of the last shown
in Figs. 1 and 2.
Like reference characters refer to like parts
throughout the speci?cation and drawing.
The shoe last I illustrated in the, drawing
comprises the instep portion 2, the ball portion
on said last and from that point curves slightly
downwardly across the arch portion towards the
heel portion, the convex face of the first men
tioned convex curvature pointing toward the toe 35
portion of said last.
