1 Claim. (01. 12-142)
This invention relates to a method of making a
shoe of the type in which a platform is inter
posed between the in-sole and out-sole and is en
closed by a casing presenting the effect of a down
ward extension of the upper.
It is the general object of my invention to im
prove this type of shoe by providing a construc
tion in which a ?anged and molded still‘ counter

Referring to Figs, 1 to 8, I have shown an upper
20 (Fig. l) and a platform casing 2| (Fig. 2),
both of which are commonly formed of canvas
or other suitable fabric but may be of leather.
The upper has a downwardly projecting heel edge
portion 20a.
The platform 22 (Fig. 3) comprises an inter
mediate sole portion 22a which may be of any
stiff sheet material such as ?bre board, and a heel
portion 22b, commonly formed of wood. The soft
or pocket heel lining 23 (Fig. 4) is commonly
formed of soft split leather or other similar ma
The counter 24 (Fig. 5) is of the usual stiff and
?anged type and is commonly made of leather or
?bre molded to the outline shown. The in-sole
25 (Fig. 6) may be made of canvas or other fabric
similar to the upper 20, and has no heel portion
except a short and narrowed extension or tab

I then center the stiff insert or tuck 25 on the
bottom of a last and tack it in place. The shoe is
then slip-lasted by placing the last in the assem
bled shoe parts, with the stiff insert overlying the
inturned edges of the pocket lining 23, the counter
24, the upper 20 and the casing 2| and also the
rear edge portion 25a of the in-sole 25.
Lasting tacks 35 are then inserted and clinched
as shown in Fig. 11. These tacks extend through
the tuck 26, the pocket lining 23, the counter 24,
the upper 20 and the casing 2i, and ?rmly secure
these parts together, some eighteen tacks being
commonly inserted. The in-sole edge portion 25a
is cemented to the beveled edge portion of the
tuck 26.
The platform 22 is then placed against the bot
tom of the shoe, and the casing 2| is turned down
and folded underneath the platform and is ce
mented in place. After this the out-sole 40 (Fig.
12) is applied and secured by cement or otherwise
in accordance with the usual practice.
The shoe is then completed by removing the
last, inserting a few heel nails 42 (Fig. 12) from
the inside of the shoe into the platform block 24b,
and thereafter cementing the heel tab 2'! in place.
The shoe is thus completely assembled and is
provided with a stiff molded and ?anged counter
24 which is ?rmly secured in place and which
greatly improves the appearance and wearing
qualities of the shoe.
Having thus described my invention and the
advantages thereof, I do not Wish to be limited

set forth in the claim, but what I claim is:
