(or so -11.5)

4Clalms.

This invention relates to footwear and has particular reference to a sandal primarily adapted for use by convalescents in wards. service hospitals and the like, and the same embodies an improved construction which conforms to the shape of the foot and provides a soft, flexible and com fortable protection of light weight, inexpensive material having wear resisting qualities.

The invention primarily comprehends a sandal composed entirely of fabric which can be laundered so as to cleanse and render th same antiseptic from time to time without impairing its softness, flexibility and wear resisting qualities.

The invention more particularly provides a sandal of the indicated character including a sole consisting of a water resistant outer ply and superposed layers of absorbent material stitched together to provide a quilted construction which is soft and flexible and is adapted to absorb moisture or perspiration given oil. by the foot of the wearer and which is secured at its marginal edges to the marginal edges of the outer ply leaving the same otherwise unsecured therewith to permit of relative movement thereof when walking, while protecting the quilting stitches from wear by contact with the floor.

The invention further includes an upper adapted to engage the forepart of the foot in the region of the instep and provided with tying means adapted to engage about the heel of the wearer for retaining the sandal in position on the foot.

With the foregoing and other objects in view, reference is now made to the following specification and accompanying drawings in which there is illustrated the preferfid form thereof.

In the drawings:

Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a sandal constructed in accordance with the invention.

Fig. 2 is an enlarged sectional view taken approximately on line 22 of Fig. 1.

Fig. 3 is a collective perspective view illustrating the upper and the plies of the sole in separated juxtaposition.

Fig. 4 is a fragmentary perspective view illustrating a modification of the tying means.

Fig. 5 is a perspective view illustrating a modifled form of the invention.

Fig. 6 is an enlarged sectional proximately on line H of Fig. 5.

Referring to the drawings by characters of reference the sandal includes an upper I0 and a sole including an outer ply ll, an inner ply I! view taken ab- 3 over the edge portions of and superposed intermediate plies l 3 and It which plies are secured together by a line of stitching I5 extending around the said plies adjacent the edges thereof and which unites the upper l0 therewith. The said plies of the sole conform to the last of the foot and are constructed of launderable material to permit of the cleansing and sterilizing of the same from time to time. The intermediate plies I3 and I 4 are constructed of soft, compressible, absorbent material such as woven or felted wool fabric, so that the same absorbs any moisture that may penetrate through the outer ply H or through the inner ply I! or which may be given oil as perspiration by the foot of the wearer.

The inner ply I2 is constructed of light weight canvas or duck and the same and the intermediate plies and H are secured together as a. unit by transverse lines of stitc g I6 to provide a soft, flexible and resilient quilted construction which is secured to the outer ply II by the line of stitching l5 and otherwise therewith to permit of relative movement of the outer ply H and the said quilted construction when the same is flexed in walking, while protecting the quilting stitching l6 from wear by contact with the floor. The outer ply H is constructed of heavy canv duck or the like while the upper I 0 is constructed of light weight canvas or duck which materials are water resistant and substantially impervious to moisture.

The intermediate ply I4 is preferably coextensive with the heel portion of the sole and terminates in the region of the arch of the foot so as to support the heel in elevated relation to the ball of the foot.

The upper l0 and the plies of the sole are reenforced by a binding strip ll which covers the edges thereof and extends inwardly over the edge portions of the outer face of the outer ply II and the upper faces of the upper l0 and the inner ply I2 and which is secured thereto by a line of stitching l8 extending around the sole and through the plies of the sole, the upper and the inwardly extending portions of the binding, the said stitching being inwardly of the line of stitching l5 so that the binding I I covers and protects the same.

The upper Ill includes oppositely disposed mating sections I8 and 20 having their-inner edge portions reenforced by a'binding strip 2| which overlies the adjacent edges thereofand is secured thereto by lines of stitching 22. The upper conforms to and engages the forepart of the foot in the regionv of the instep-with the forward edge thereof spaced from the toe of the sole and the rear edge declining rearwardly with; the lower front of the heel. The front and rear edge portions of the upper are reenformed by binding strips 23 and 24.

The sandal is provided with tie strings in the form of tapes 25 and 26 which are secured to the upper, one on each side thereof, at the rear, the string 26 being relatively longer t 26 whereby the longer string is adaptedto engage about the heel of the wearer and to be formed into a knot or bow with the string 26 on the inner side of the foot so as to facilitate tying thereof. In place of, the string 26, the upper may be provided with an eyelet 21, as illustrated in Fig. 4, through which the string 25 is reeved and tied with the adjacent portion of said string.

In the form of the invention illustrated in Figs.

the string and 6 of the drawings, the sandal is provided with'an elastic strap or band 30 opposite ends to the opposite sides of the upper 3i at the rear thereof adjacent th sole 32 and which strap or band 30 is adapted to resiliently engage about the heel of the wearer to retain the sandal on the foot. The upper 3! in this. form of the invention is similar to the construction of the form hereinbefore described, while the sole 32 as illustrated in cross section in Fig. 6 consists of a ply 33 of a regenerated cellulose material such as Cellophane, Celluloid or other moisture proof material which is interposed between the outer ply 34 and the intermediate plies 35, it being understood that the outer ply 34, the intermeditae plies 35 and the inner ply 36 are each constructed of a material similar to that hereinbefore described in the previous form of the invention and that the upper 3| and the sole including the said ply 33 of regenerated cellulose material can be laundered, cleansed and sterilized without destroying the quality or character of said materials. Furthermore, the moisture proof ply 33 prevents moisture or dampness penetrating the inner sole construction so that the intermediate plies 35 of woven or felted wool and the like provide a warm covering for the bottom of the foot of the wearer.

What is claimed is:

1. In a sandal, a sole composed of layers of fabric material including an outer water resistant ply, an inner ply and superposed intermediate plies of absorbent material, said intermediate and inner plies being stitched together to provide a quilted construction which is unsecured with reference to the outer ply in the region of the quilted portion, an upper composed of a woven fabric material conforming to and adapted to engage the forepart of the foot in the region of the instep, stitching securing said inner and intermediate plies together at the marginal. edges thereof and securing the upper thereto, a binding surrounding the edges of the soleland overlying the outer face of the outer ply and the upper faces of the inner ply and the upper adjacent the edges thereof, stitching engaging through said overlying portions of said binding and through said upper and the plies of the sole securing the same together adjacent the edges thereof inwardly of the second mentioned stitching for securing the binding and the upper and sol together, and means carried by said upper and adapted to engage about the heel of the wearer for retaining the sandal on the foot.
