Kubiclri, Webster, Mass. 1 Application March 13, 1945, Serial No. 582,561 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 2 25a. The heel insert or tuck 26 (Fig. 7) is of stiff leather or ?bre and has a thin beveled front edge. The heel tab 21 is of thin soft leather or of some other sheet material having a similar ap pearance. In manufacturing my improved shoe, I ?rst place the soft or pocket lining 23 Within the heel portion of the upper 20 and secure the lining in may be conveniently embodied. position by a row of stitches 30 extending along In the accomplishment of this object, I utilize 10 the top and front edges only of the lining but‘ an in-sole having no heel portion, and I provide leaving the lower edge thereof free. from the a stiff heel insert or “tuck” overlying the in upper. turned molded edges of the counter and ?rmly I then assemble the upper 20 and the casing 21 secured thereto. as shown in Fig. 9, with the casing turned wrong My invention further relates to arrangements 15 side out and placed outside of the upper. These and combinations of parts which will be herein parts, together with the edges of the in-sole 25, after described and more particularly pointed out are then secured by a line of stitching 3 I, it being in the appended claim. noted, however, that the rear end of the in-sole A preferred form of the invention is shown in 25 does not extend to the heel of the shoe and that the drawing, in which 20 in the heel portion the upper and the casing only Fig. l is a perspective View of a shoe upper; are stitched together. Fig. 2 is a similar view of a platform casing; I then insert the molded counter 24 into the ' Fig, 3 is a perspective view of the platform; Fig, 4 is a similar view of a soft or pocket heel pocket lining 23, this operation being permitted Fig. 5 is a perspective view of a molded counter; by the shortness of the in-sole and the fact that the pocket lining is free at its lower edge. lining; Fig. 6 is a plan view of an in-sole; ' Fig. 7 is a perspective View of a heel insert or tuck; Fig. 8 is a plan view of a heel lining or tab; , Figs. 9 and 10 are partial longitudinal sectional elevations showing successive steps in the assem bly of the shoe; Fig. 11 is a transverse section showing certain parts of the shoe assembled on a last; and Fig. 12 is a side elevation of the complete shoe. 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 terial. ‘ 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 heel of the shoe between the upper 20 and the 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 9,404,878 a, 3 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 to the details herein disclosed, otherwise than as set forth in the claim, but what I claim is: In the method of making a shoe of the platform 4 . ward of the heel portion only, said in-sole having forward and shank portions only, stitching the ‘upper and the rear portion of said casing only to gether around said heel portion, inserting a molded counter in the pocket formed between the heel portion of the upper and said soft heel lining at the free lower edge of said heel lining, placing a stiff heel insert over the in-turned edges type and having an upper and a full-length plat of the counter and heel lining and in the heel form casing, the steps of stitching a soft heel lin ing to the inside ‘of said upper around the top and 10 portion only of said shoe, lasting said parts, tack ing said parts together on the last,-applying a front edges only of said heel lining but leaving full-length platform to the shoe, securing the the lower edge of the heel lining free, stitching down-turned casing to fully enclose said. plat form, and securing an outer sole to said shoe. the front portion of said casing and the outer ‘ ' WILLIAM J.
