WITNESS ARCH CUSHION Filed Aug. 2, 1922 J E W 15124 3 7975 INVENTOR ATTORNEY Patented Nov. 4, 1924.
JOHN P. W. SCHOPF, OF LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA.
Application filed August 2, 1922. Serial No. 579,233.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that 1, JOHN P. W. SoHorF, a citizen of the United States, residing at Los Angeles, in the county of Los Angeles and State of California, have invented new and useful Improvements in Arch Cushions, of which the following is a specification.
My present invention has reference to an arch support for shoes.
An object of the invention is to provide a novel means for supporting arches of the feet which can be readily inserted in the shoe and which is yieldable to prevent discomfort to the wearer.
A further object is to produce an arch support in which the body thereof is constructed of some substantially yieldable nonmetallic material, such for instance, from a strip of leather, said body having a canvas lining on its under face to which is secured compressible air filled tubes arranged in a manner to arch the body to provide the desired support for the foot.
The foregoing, and other objects which will present themselves as the nature of the invention is better understood, may be accomplished by a construction, combination and operative association of parts, such as is disclosed by the drawing which accompanies and which forms part of this application.
In the drawing Figure 1 is a top plan view of an arch support in accordance with this invention.
Figure 2 is a bottom plan view thereof.
Figure 3 is a sectional view on the line 5-3 of Figure 1.
Referring now to the drawing in detail, the numeral 1 designates my improved arch support in its entirety. The support includes a body 2 which is preferably formed from a piece of substantially compressible material, such as from a strip of leather. On its under face the leather body 1 has secured thereto in any desired or preferred manner, a reinforcing strip of canvas which is indicated by the numeral 3. The body, as well as the canvas is provided with the usual arched portion t. Arranged transversely between the arched and substantially flattened portion of the body there are any desired number of compressible tubes l. Each of these tubes is filled with air. Disposed transversely of the tubes, but in a line with the longitudinal edge of the arched portion of the body there is another tube 5, which is also filled with air. The tube 5 is connected to the flat ends of the tubes 4 by vulcanizing these tubes together or by cementing the same.
The air filled tubes afford a yieldable support for the under face of the body 2. The tubes 1 are cemented or otherwise connected to the canvas under facing 3, so that the arched portion 1 of the body 2 is effectively sustained properly positioned on the said body, but at the same time is rendered sufficiently yieldable as to not inconvenience or hurt the foot of the wearer.
It is thought that the foregoing description, when taken in connection with the drawing will fully set forth the construction, operation and advantages of the improvement to those skilled in the art to which this invention relates.
Having described the claim In an arch support, a body having an arched portion, air filled tubes disposed transversely on the under face of the body at the said arched portion thereof, and an air filled tube arranged longitudinally of the body and at one edge thereof, said longitudinally arranged air tube secured to the transversely arranged air tubes and disposed beneath the end portions thereof adjacent one edge of the body.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature.
JOHN P. W. SCI-IOPF.
