joined together by a seam, said seam being
adapted to be located over the center line of
the heel of the shoe, saidpieces being sprung
upwardly along the lower portion of said seam,
15 socket and stud acts as a gauge for wrapping the. 1; 'a'. band attached to one end of the gaiter and
puttee both above and below it. When the socket I having a curved outline, said band being made
and stud are closed, the upper part of the puttee

will on its own account conformto theiupperj‘ beingymadeofytw'o pieces joined together by a
part of the leg.
The part 9 of the so-called gaiter portion of
the puttee covers the outside of the shoe as shown
in Figure 2, and the part IIl covers therinside of
the shoe as shown in Figure 3, and the strap
I2a goes under the arch as shown in Figure 3, and
engages with the buckle I3 as shown in Figure 2.
A recess I4 is provided that will engageat the
longs/earn, the lower part of the band being
made of one piece, the upper end of the lower part
and the lower end of the upper part being joined
togetherrby'a short seam extending directly across
the’ band, said long seam extending from the
middle of the short seam up to near the end
ofpthe puttee and being nearly evenly spaced
from- the upper and lower edges thereof, the
back of the foot or tendon over the heel, and'the ' two pieces of the upper part being sprung to

40 that is adapted to ?t and to be worn on the right
foot and leg. By reversing the shape of the parts,
keeping them symmetrical with the parts shown,
the puttee will be adapted for use on the left foot
and leg.
It will also be understood that this puttee will
naturally shed water, and-is much wider than
puttees ordinarily used and this makes is possi
