In this and other re spects this puttee is an improvement on that shown in my prior application Serial No. 71,191, ?led March 27, 1936. I claim: .1. A puttee for covering the lower leg, com prising a lower portion constituting a gaiter and adapted to cover the upper portion of the foot, said gaiter portion being made of two pieces 10 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 of three pieces, the upper part of the band ‘ will on its own account conformto theiupperj‘ beingymadeofytw'o pieces joined together by a part of the leg. 20 y, ,_ 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 recess I 3a will engage on the front of the foot gether along the long seam, said band being abovethe instep, lying centrally thereon. rll'hese adapted-‘to be wrapped around the leg up to and 30 recesses are provided to prevent cha?ng. g It willv also be understood that the section marked 9a and Mia can work up and down on the gaiter 9 and I0 without cha?ng the tendon or the leg. ' ~ , . ' The long part-I wraps around the lower part of the leg beginning at the ankle and the upper including the. calf of the leg, means for fas 30 tening the upper end of the puttee in place on the calf of the leg. 2. The combination in a puttee of algaiter adapted to cover. the upper portion of ashoe, a band'attached to said gaiter to wrap around the 35 parts 2 and 3 wrap around the calf and are fas leg, the band and the gaiter being cut away at the top to form a recess so that the gaiter and tened thereon by the strap 1 and buckle 6. puttee will loosely conform to the front of the ' ,In Figures -1, 2 and 3 I have shown a puttee leg. 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 ble' to wrap it round the foot and leg with but three turns. . ' . i . a In the sample puttee from which the drawing was made the total length of the part I between the corners 20 and 2| is twenty-three and a half inches, and the other dimensions of the part I ' and of the other parts are in proportion. The parts of the puttee are made wide so that they will cover the leg and calf with afew number . . 3. A puttee for covering the lower leg, com prising a lower portion constitutinga gaiter and adapted to cover the. upper portion of the foot, said gaiter portion'being made of two'pieces joined together by a seam, said seam being adapted to be located over the center line of the 45 heel of the shoe, said pieces being sprung up wardly along the lower portion of said seam, a band attached. to one end of the gaiter and having av curved outline, a stud near the. lower end of said band, a socket higher up on said band 50 near the intermediate part thereof, said socket being adapted to engage the stud whereby the intermediate part of the puttee is locked in place correctly on the leg. - > ' RALPH A.
