1 Claim.
This invention'relates to the manufacture of
welt shoes which have the outsole cemented to
the shoe bottom instead of stitched thereto.
In a welt shoe the welt and the outer marginal
5 portion of the outsole which contacts with the
welt project somewhat beyond the edge of the last
on which the shoe is made, and one problem in
volved in the cementing of an outsole to the bot
. tom of a welt shoe is to provide for the applica
10 tion of the requisite amount of pressure between
the welt and said outer marginal portion of the
outsole to make the ?rm cemented union between
the two at the edge of the sole which is necessary
, in producing a satisfactory shoe by the so-called
"cement process.” It has been proposed to use a
welt hold-down having for its purpose to form a
sort of backing for the welt while the sole-attach
ing pressure is being applied}
It is one of the objects of the present invention
20 to provide a novel last for use in making welt
shoes in which the outsole is cemented to the
shoe bottom, which is so constructed that the
application of the sole-attaching pressure to the
outsole will result in forcing the welt toward the

showing different embodiments of the invention.
In the drawing I indicates a last for use in mak
ing a welt shoe of the type in which the outsole
is cemented to the shoe bottom. The bottom face
2 of the fore part of the last is convex in a direc (71
tion transversely of the last, the convexity being
approximately such as to complement the con
cave shape which the foot-engaging face of a
shoe sole assumes after it has been thoroughly
broken in.
The last is also made with a rib-receiving
groove 3 in its bottom face adjacent the marginal
edge of the fore part, said groove being wider
than its depth and situated in a position to re
ceive the rib on the insole of the welt shoe during
the application of the sole-attaching pressure by
which the outsole is applied. This rib-receiving
groove 3 terminates at the shank portion of the
last but extends around the fore part thereof.
Said groove is not only wider than its depth but 20

gether and thus ?rmly cemented at their outer
edges without the necessity of using a welt hold
30 down or other means to provide a suitable back
ing for the welt.
A further object of our invention is to provide
a last for use in making welt shoes in which the
outsole is cemented to the shoe bottom, which last
is so constructed that when the shoe is initially
made the foot-engaging face of the sole will have
a concave shape approximating the concave
shape which the foot-engaging face of the sole
of a shoe assumes after the shoe has been well
broken in.
In order to give an understanding of the inven
tion we have illustrated in the drawing some se
lected embodiments thereof which will now be
described after which the novel features will be
45 pointed out in the claim.
In the drawing: ‘
Fig. 1 is a bottom plan view of a last embodying
my invention;
Fig. 2 is a transverse section through a lasted
welt shoe with the last therein before the outsole
is applied thereto;
Fig. 3 is a sectional view showing the step of
cementing the outsole to the shoe bottom in ac
cordance with our invention;
Figs. 4 and 5 are transverse sectional views
of any welt shoe, that is, the shoe may be lasted
in the usual way and then the edges 4 of the
upper 5 and the welt 6 will be stitched to the, rib 0
‘l of the insole 8 by means of the inseam stitches
9 as shown in Fig. 2. After the making of the
shoe has progressed to this point, then the next
step is to cement the outsole ID to the shoe bot
The last is so made that the rib-receiving groove
3 in the bottom thereof will be opposite the rib
‘l of the insole. When the outsole Ill is put in
position and the sole-attaching pressure is applied
thereto, the edge 4 of the upper, the rib ‘l and the
inner portion of the welt stitched thereto will be
forced toward the last and the portion l3 of the
insole to which the upper and welt are sewed
will be forced into the groove 3 as shown in Fig. 3.
The shape of the groove and the position of the 45
outer wall thereof is such that this deforming or
the insole as indicated at 13 tends to draw the
inner edge of the welt upwardly toward the last
with the result that the outer edge of the welt I
tends to move downwardly toward the edge of the
outsole. The outsole I0, therefore, will be sub
jected to the sole-attaching pressure which tends
to force the edges of the outsole upwardly toward
the welt, and because of the deformity of the in
sole as shown at l3 the outer edge of the welt is 01
subjected to a downward pressure tending to
force it against the outsole, and these opposed
‘forces serve to ?rmly cement the welt and the
