This-invention relates primarily to elastic heels
for boots and shoes, and a prime object of the
invention is to provide a, novel and improved heel
of this character which can be easily and quickly
adjusted or moved relatively to the heel portion
of the shoe so that as the elastic material wears
away, for example at the rear outer zone, the
heel may be adjusted or moved to replace said
Worn portion with a relatively unworn-portion

an elastic rim 2, separably applied to the edge
portion thereof in encircling relation‘ thereto, the.
body portion and rim being of‘ such size and‘ shape
that when they are assembled together, the en
semble substantially conforms in plan to the rear
portion 3 of the sole of a boot or shoe.
The body portion I may‘ be variously shaped,
but preferably it is generally rectangular and
formed with broadly rounded corners; and ‘while
thereof, whereby the life of the heel shall be sub 10 said body portion may be formed of any suitable

relatively hard and rigid material such ‘asleather,

Another object is‘to provide such a heel which
shall embody novel and improved features of ‘ con
struction such that said adjusting can be done
and also the elastic heel can be replaced or
changed by a relatively unskilled person, such
