SHOE RACK
Stephen Gerlich, Chicago, Ill.
Application October 5, 1945, Serial No. 620,415
5 Claims. (01. 211-35)
1
My invention relates to a rack for supporting
shoes which are to be put away when not worn,
the said rack being primarily directed to the type
which will support; a shoe and permit the air

by soldering or spot welding It. The upper por
tion of the formed loops [3 is, preferably, in
dented as indicated at it to form a suitable seat
for the attaching means 5 to seat therein when
currents to circulate thereunder, also thereabove, 5 another shoe rack is attached to the ?rst shoe
as well as all around the shoe, in order to permit
it to dry quickly from the perspiration that may
.have accumulated within the texture during
wear.
Another object of my invention is to produce a
unit rack made preferably of wire material, and
rack to be co-extensive therewith. It is to be
noted that the loop portion provides an upper
and a lower locating portion for the slotted por
tion 6 of the second unit 4 shown in dotted lines
in Fig. ,1, thus preventing lateral displacement
and furnishing lateral location. 7

Another object of my invention is to provide a
shoe rack of the aforementioned character which
is practical in construction, ei?cient for the pur
poses and uses to which it may be applied, and
one of such simple elemental structure as to make
possible economical manufacture thereof ' in
quantity production.
Other features and ancillary objects of my in
vention may be readily deduced from the show
ings embraced in' the accompanying drawing,
taken in consideration with the ensuing descrip
tion, wherein like parts are designated by like
symbols; and, in which,
Fig. 1 is a front view of a unit of my invention.
Fig. 2 is a side view thereof.
Fig. 3 is an enlarged perspective view of that
will act as a stop, limiting the angular motion of
the elements I8 and con?ning the movement
thereof to an angle of substantially 45 degrees,
. ‘which may be collapsed to a co-incidental or su
> perimposed position on the main element to
which it is hingedly secured. The shoe 22, pro
vided with the heel 23 and sole 24, is caused to rest
in a fashion indicated by the dotted lines in Figs.
30 1 and 2. Thus the shoe is subjected to a permea
tion of the air currents throughout, hence the
overall texture of the shoe material will be caused
to dry more rapidly. The shoes‘ will be main
tained off the ?oor where they are customarily
kept, and thus will be prevented from absorbing
additional moisture or dirt which is found on ?oor
surfaces.
While it has been stated that wire is preferable
